The church is a unique creation of God. He puts groups of people together for the purpose of worshiping Him, encouraging one another, reaching out to the lost, and building up the believer in their knowledge of Him. The interesting thing is that the Spirit of God equips each believer with a spiritual gift to be used in His church. While some believers seem to have more gifts or at least more prominent gifts, it can be discouraging to the one who feels as if their gift is insignificant or unimportant. In 1 Corinthians 12, Paul explains very well that it is God Who has chosen our giftedness and it is God Who put the church together. His plan is that all of the believers should work together as a team through the power of the Holy Spirit. When we do that, God works in amazing ways. Teamwork is a concept that applies to every area of our lives, but it is so vital if we want our church to thrive. There are no insignificant people in the kingdom of God; we are all vessels that are to be used for the glory of God.
