The Lone Ranger and Tonto – Partners
The Lone Ranger was awesome, but he needed Tonto. Tonto was a great indian scout, but he needed the Lone Ranger. Each had their own strengths, but together they had super strength. Never underestimate the importance of our working together! That’s why in Paul’s letter to the church at Phillipi in chapter 2 verse 2 Paul wrote “complete my joy by being of the same mind, with the same love, united in heart, thinking of one thing.” PARTNERS
Proverbs 27:17 SAYS, Iron is sharpened by iron; one person sharpens another. If you are a pretty sharp person in your own thinking, think how sharp you would be if you partnered with another Spirit-filled person to serve God. The results would be incredible and the effect would be tremendous. Of course, satan does not want this partnership to happen, so he sows dissension, mistrust, jealousy, and hatred wherever he can to insure this partnership never happens. That is why each of us need to partner together to pool our gifts and resources for serving the Lord. A church full of these partnerships is a church that is “on the move.” As the famous worldly philosopher, Larry the Cable Guy says, “Get er done!” Viktor Frankl, a concentration camp survivor said, “Everything can be taken from a man but one thing: To choose one’s attitude in any given set of circumstances, to choose one’s way.” No matter what your attitude is today it can be changed and as Paul said in Romans 12:21 “Do not conform any longer to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is–his good, pleasing and perfect will.” The god of this world wants “every man for himself” but our God wants PARTNERS! Join hands with another believer and see what God will do with a true partnership. You will be pleasantly surprised…
