“Greet Pricilla and Aquila, my fellow workers in Jesus Christ…” A look at the list of fellow workers in Romans 16:1-16 reminds us that our ministry and work as Christian leaders is not the work of the “Lone Christian;” we need others. Who has God brought into your life and ministry? Give thanks to God for them. Almighty God and Father, I give you thanks for _______________, these persons who are fellow workers in Jesus Christ, Your Son.
“I will ask the Father, and he will give you another Advocate, to be with you forever…I will not leave you orphaned: I am coming to you.” Adam and Eve mistakenly believed they needed to care for themselves. They felt orphaned. How important is it for us to recognize our dependency on God’s Spirit and give thanks that we are not left alone? Breathe on us breath of God, fill us with life anew. Amen.
