Dr. Hamlin’s Reflection for Sunday, September 14, 2014












“Teamwork makes the dream work, but a vision becomes a nightmare when the leader has a

big dream and a bad team.”

 John C. Maxwell


 The disciples of Jesus were successful because, in part, they functioned as a team.  Jesus strategically called each of them well aware of their gifts and talents.  He knew the contribution each would make; He knew their potential and those areas where they would be challenged.  Jesus told Peter that he would deny Him three times.  He welcomed the kiss of betrayal by Judas and predicted it.  He knew that Matthew/Levi would be equally committed as he was as a tax collector.  Jesus knew all of them would leave all that was important to them and follow Him.

 Jesus shared with His team the vision for ministry, the vision for the Church.  He shared with them a powerful vision, a vision that included an invitation to all people and gave His disciples the tools so that nothing would be able to prevent its success (Matthew 16.18).  Jesus knew His team and used them wisely in ministry.  Despite the many challenges they faced, including persecution and death, they were great champions for the cause of faith.
