It’s a chaotic scene of carnage. Spartans falling on all sides as the battle rages on. The enemy fires blasters, rocket launchers, sniper rifles and shotguns. To survive, you stick with your team. The team works together to keep the enemy at bay and picks them off one by one. If you’re caught in a corner, it’s your teammate who swoops in for the rescue. The team covers your back.
Teamplay is good strategy in a computer game and a lifeline for the Christian. Your teammates can save your “skinny little neck” as one Bible teacher puts it. Do you have a team? You need one. There’s a chaotic scene of carnage raging all around you. To survive, you need your team.
“Two are better than one, because they have a good return for their labor.” If one falls down, his friend can help him up. But pity the man who falls and has no one to help him up! Though one may be overpowered, two can defend themselves. A cord of three strands is not quickly broken.” Ecclesiastes 4:9-10, 12
“Let us not give up meeting together, as some are in the habit of doing, but let us encourage one another-and all the more as you see the Day approaching.” Hebrew 10:25
