“Following Jesus and Loving People”


“You can do what I cannot do. I can do what you cannot do. Together we can do great things” (Mother Teresa).

Jesus accomplished his mission on earth and went back to the Father. After he rose from the dead, he passed the mission on to those who would follow him. He said, “All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age” (Matt. 28:18-20). This is a great mission, which no one can accomplish alone. We need teamwork within a community of faith. There are voices today who say, “you don’t need the church…you can be a Christian all by yourself.” Jesus never believed this or taught this.


The New Testament reveals that we are the body of Christ and all are members of one another. Saying, “I need you” crucifies my illusion of independence and opens my heart to see others as special gifts of God, to love and serve. As we love one another and participate in the community of faith, we create a healthy, inviting fellowship in which guests feel our unity in the presence of the Holy  Spirit. Jesus said, “By this all men will know that you are my disciples, if you love one another” (John 13:35). One day we will give an account of how we spent our life. I would rather stand before him, having lived my days with his people, going after his mission, than having attempted to “go it alone” with no lasting fruit to present to him. TEAM…Together Everyone Achieves More!
