Teamwork

So often I see church fighting against other churches.  Pastor against pastor, flock against flock.  Ministers and churches looking to one up each other and trying desperately to steal sheep from one pasture to put in their own pasture rather than fighting the fight that God put us for...

"For we are not fighting against flesh-and-blood enemies, but against evil rulers and authorities of the unseen world, against mighty powers in this dark world, and against evil spirits in the heavenly places." Eph 6:12

A pastor's victory is not found in the defeat of those laboring along side him in other churches, but in the defeat of the evil one.  If you find your victories in the defeat of your co-laborers, then you are fighting the wrong fight.   Go, fight the evil one, seek to share the truth with the lost, disciple those entrusted to you that they may join the fight, and realize this fight is not yours, for you are merely a foot-soldier for the KING!

We must give it ALL TO HIM and then we are no longer slaves. I am not sure who said it, but there is a famous quote that says, "Show me your bank statement and show me
