PASTORS' DAILY DEVOTIONAL
Team DNAJohn Tilton
Acts 2:40-43 With many other words he exhorted them; and he pleaded with them, “Save yourselves from this corrupt generation. ”Those who accepted his message were baptized, and about three thousand were added to their number that day.They devoted themselves to the apostles’ teaching and to fellowship, to the breaking of bread and to prayer. Everyone was filled with awe at the many wonders and signs performed by the apostles.
I love Peter for his encouragement and exhortation which was so clear and concise as to what they needed to do. In addition, given his exhortation, they devoted themselves to one another in teaching, fellowship, community and prayer. God was then able to do so may wonders and signs through them.
In seasons of change, seasons of challenge or continuance of seasons, the team DNA concept is so important to enable God to manifest his will and accomplishments through us. It starts with encouagement and exhortation of one another, then adding instruction and teaching, relationships through fellowship, community and most importantly prayer. It is then that we have the formula for success. We are so blessed at this time to see God at work at New Hope as we experience and live by this DNA. The key is that we make it all happen by our intent, words and actions. It doesn't happen by itself. The team DNA concept and formula starts with eadh of us doing our part in encouragement, learning, fellowship, community and prayer.
Dear Lord, Thank you for what you are doing in this new and excitng season at New Hope. I pray that you will keep my heart, words and actions and those of my peers of one accord in concept of Team DNA.
