“so they signaled to their partners in the other boat for them to come and help them. And they came and filled both of the boats, so that they began to sink” (Luke 5:7).
The work to which we are called as the body of Christ cannot be done apart from teamwork. Every believer has a unique personality and gift set that comes to bear on the ministry of the church in the world. When participation is withheld, we deprive both the church and the world of someone providentially created and gifted to make a difference, someone who is to be an influence wherever their feet might come to rest. We can do far more together than could ever be done by any one individual.
