This thought comes to me because I am a team player! The question is, “What is the real Dream Team?” When you ask basketball fans, like myself, what the dream team was, they would say the 1992 US Olympic team. But was that the first dream team?
The answer is no. Not by two thousand years. The first Dream Team was the team Jesus called on as his first group of disciples. If you think about the 12 original disciples, they were like a team.
Every team nowadays has a member that is in it for the money. (Judas).
Every team also has a loyal Captain like teammate. (In this case, Jesus).
Every team also has a person willing to go the extra mile and doubts themselves. (Peter)
The positions go on, and continue, but the point that is being made is: the Disciples were a team that Jesus handpicked Himself.
The best part of it is: His team is still growing! He is inviting you to join His team.
18 Then Jesus came to them and said, “All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. 19 Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, 20 and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.” Matthew 28:18-20 (NIV)
Jesus’s invitation is always available, and He wants you to accept.
Are you willing to join His team? Do you know He has hand picked you? Are you going to be the greedy one on the team? Are you going to be a team player?
