Ant Quality- Last part



Our God is amazing my friends. See the union of these little creatures. This is wonderful. We can agree with what Henry Ford said :
"Coming together is a beginning; keeping together is progress; working together is success"

How much more wonderful would it be if it was among we people of God?How the work of God would be of really great success.

How do ants work? Each ant member has a role to play in the colony that is the team. And each colony cannot survive very well without its leader( the queen). When teams are formed and even after they have existed for a period of time, it is necessary that each team member understand and be reminded in relation to their role and how they contribute to the team and the organization's goal (survival). The more clearly defined the roles of team members are, the happier team members will be and better they will perform.

 And, we christians?

See what the bible says:

Humble Service in the Body of Christ - Romans 12: 3-8

For by the grace given me I say to every one of you: Do not think of yourself more highly than you ought, but rather think of yourself with sober judgment, in accordance with the faith God has distributed to each of you. For just as each of us has one body with many members, and these members do not all have the same function, so in Christ we, though many, form one body, and each member belongs to all the others. We have different gifts, according to the grace given to each of us. If your gift is prophesying, then prophesy in accordance with your faith; if it is serving, then serve; if it is teaching, then teach; if it is to encourage, then give encouragement; if it is giving, then give generously; if it is to lead, do it diligently; if it is to show mercy, do it cheerfully.

So, good people, for the Body of Christ to function perfectly, we need union between the members. Exactly like the ants. The Body represents the Church and the Head is Jesus. The only goal is building up the kingdom of God.
But how to grow the work of God if there is division, judgement, hatred, quarrels, superiority and jealousy?

1 Corinthians 12:21-26 tells you:
 The eye cannot say to the hand, “I have no need of you,” nor again the head to the feet, “I have no need of you.” On the contrary, the parts of the body that seem to be weaker are indispensable, and on those parts of the body that we think less honorable we bestow the greater honor, and our unpresentable parts are treated with greater modesty, which our more presentable parts do not require. But God has so composed the body, giving greater honor to the part that lacked it, that there may be no division in the body, but that the members may have the same care for one another. ... 

Therefore, let us analyse our attitudes today and work in the same spirit to build the kingdom of God in saving souls. With love towards each other, collaboration. Let us avoid controversies and watch out for those who cause division and create obstacles.

I appeal to you, brothers, to watch out for those who cause divisions and create obstacles contrary to the doctrine that you have been taught; avoid them. For such persons do not serve our Lord Christ, but their own appetites, and by smooth talk and flattery they deceive the hearts of the naive.(Romans 16:17-18)
