1 Corinthians 8:16,23
18 - But thanks be to God, which put the same earnest care into the hearts of Titus for you.
23 - Whether any do enquire Titus, he is my partner and my fellowhelper concerning you: or our brother be enquired of, they are messengers of the church and the glory of Christ.
When mountain climbers scale a high peak, they go in teams. When scuba divers plunge into deep seas, they go in pairs. Why? They realize the necessity of sticking together in their Journey.
The Apostle Paul followed the same principle in his ministry journeys. Whether he was sailing the Mediterranean or traveling through Asia minor, he always had someone to work with in the ministry. There was Barnabas, Silas, Titus, and Timothy. Paul made an investment in each one by mentoring and challenged them to live out God's purpose for their lives and then, these men moved on to equip others.
When it comes to ministry, we never have to go alone. God has given us Our family here at First Christian Church. Faithful believers who we can put an investment in and do great things with. Take a look around you. Some of the greatest crowns that will ever be given when we stand in front of Jesus, will be those people whose names were never mentioned from the pulpit or in the bulletin. I Challenge you to find someone in our church who you can support, invest in, mentor, challenge and equip as a partner in spreading the Gospel of Jesus Christ.
Through a faithful investment in others, you can help someone climb higher or dive deeper into God's Ministry.
