We share with many people and institutions, the battle for souls in the kingdom. The fight isn't, of course among ourselves, but against the enemy and for the hearts of brothers and sisters to be. These institutions include social agencies, churches, para church organisations and educational institutions to name a few. Where it starts and where it finishes is up to us.
In a day when resources seem more limited than ever, these partnerships are one way to maximise our efforts and leverage the existing strength we already have. I reckon we should always look towards partnerships in our endeavors to serve the Lord. It actually sounds scriptural.
2 Corinthians 1:24 (MSG)
24 We're not in charge of how you live out the faith, looking over your shoulders, suspiciously critical. We're partners, working alongside you, joyfully expectant. I know that you stand by your own faith, not by ours.
