These past two weeks of Internship have shed light onto the importance of working together as a body. One man can accomplish much on his own. But what it took to get there is an internally different story. Along the way many have left their mark in the foundation of that one man’s accomplishment.
Matthew 14:13-21, Mark 6:31, Luke 9:11-17, John 6:1-13. These scriptures are perfect examples of one man’s accomplishment, as well as many men coming together, lifting up the hands of one to accomplish His goal. Jesus feeding the 5,000+ was a remarkable feat, especially in that time period.
As the bread and fish were presented to Him, Jesus lifted it up to heaven, blessed it and shared His goal with His disciples. At first, it didn’t seem possible. At first it seemed crazy. But because they believed in Him and His goal, they set out to accomplish it. So, as they walked among the 5,000+, they distributed the bread and the fish. In the end, they had more than enough.
Just as the disciples worked to accomplish Jesus’ goal, we, the body Christ must do the same. A simple task has been sent before us. Go, and preach the gospel to every living creature. As Pastor Rodney and Adonica continue the goal to spread the gospel around America, we here at home are to lift up their hands, and be their voice in Tampa, FL.
From the outreach department, to the helps ministry here at The River, we are all doing our part as the body of Christ to see this goal accomplished. For another Great Awakening tour here in America, to see this great land come back to its first and only love; Jesus!
