Spiritual Olympics; Part Two

Everybody Should Be Part Of The Team; Let there be real harmony so there won't be divisions in the

church. I plead with you to be of one mind, united in thought and

purpose 1 Cor. 1:10

Intro:

· Of all the Olympic events of the past week , the team event that

encouraged me the most was Equestrian. Not that I am the biggest horse fan

(that would be my daughter Promise), but the team itself. Id

never hear of dressage; before. [The sport of guiding a

horse, almost imperceptivity through a series of complex maneuvers and

jumps].

· But it was the O'Connors that caught my attention on Tuesday

evening. A husband and wife who are part of the USA Equestrian team. David

O'Connor made history with the best ever score for the event on

Wednesday.

· Both David and his wife Karen are at the top of their

sport and it would be easy to think they made it their alone but

listen to what they have to say about Team

O'Connor, Karen and David O'Connor, two of the most successful riders

currently sporting the stars and stripes in any equestrian discipline,

are more than just two talented individuals. Combined with a wide array of

owners, sponsors and staff, their collective total is greater than the sum

of its parts; it is in fact, the O'Connor Event {Though] Karen and David share the limelight that comes with

top-notch riding; their wins are the result of a number of factors, each

of equal importance. Without the support of a large group of people that

help and care, the O'Connor Event Team would not be in a position to claim

the success that has been so hard earned. {oconnoreventteam.com}

That's team work

· That's what the Apostle Paul is telling the church at Corinth as

he opens his first letter to them.

· Let there be real harmony so there won't be divisions in

the church. I plead with you to be of one mind, united in thought and

purpose 1 Cor. 1:10

· Let there be real harmony, united in thought and

purpose;

or I wonder if he was also thinking: SO THE WHOLE TEAM CAN WIN!

Trans: I want to talk to you think morning about THE TEAM

and with that the TEAMWORK involved in having and being a part of

the TEAM.

· Everybody needs a team

· And from my perspective most teams need EVERYBODY!

· Good teams are united and everyone (whether on the field or in practice)

is needed!

In the New Testament , and today our team is called the

CHURCH.

· Jesus Christ never expected any individual Christian to go it

alone.

o Though the Christian life may be a marathon and not a

sprint [last week's message)

o All of us should be part of the whole THE TEAM

o In the church[;adjusted quote]

Our collective total is greater than the sum of {our} parts; it is

in fact, the First Family Team. {our} wins are the result of a

number of factors, each of equal importance. Without the support of a

large group of people that help and care, {we would never} be in a

position to claim the success that has been so hard earned.

So what does it take to be a part of the TEAM

Well first, maybe I need to share with you the
