Bible Reading: 1 Corinthians 12:12-31
It was the beginning of the 4th Quater and the Falcons had just turned the ball over to the Patriots. Tom Brady was preparing to pass the ball to the wide receiver down the field. It was the set up for an amazing play. The offensive line was doing their job to protect their quarterback. Because of this, Tom Brady had enough time to determine who would be the best player to receive the ball to accomplish their goal of a 1st down. The ball was thrown and it was…
The wide receiver failed to take possession of the ball.
Because he wasn’t in position.
It didn’t matter how great of a play it was, how well everyone else played their part or even how good Tom Brady’s decision-making skills were. All it took was for one player to not be in position. And that one player’s inability to get in position affected the outcome of everyone else connected to him.
The same holds true for our lives. We all have positions in the Body of Christ and every position is needed. Your decisions and ability to get in position don’t just affect you, they also affect everyone that is connected to you. In order for us to successfully advance the Kingdom of God, reach the lost, serve the community and meet the needs, we all have to be in position.
Are you in position?
Prayer: God, You are so amazing. Thank You for reminding me that my position is important. There are people that are connected to me that are depending on me to get in position. I have not always been obedient to Your calling and I ask You to forgive me. As I continue to help advance Your Kingdom, help me to be mindful of my position and know that it is greater than me. In Jesus’ name, I pray!
