Espirit de Corps

January 11, 2010 — Leave a comment

“When the Day of Pentecost arrived, they were all together in one place.”

Acts 2:1 (ESV)

The word for “together” is more than just showing up in the same spot.  The NIV translation says, they were all “with one accord.”  There is absolutely nothing like the feeling experienced when a people wholeheartedly get behind a vision, combining all their talents, skills and hearts for the purpose of accomplishing something far bigger than themselves.  It’s called TEAM – Together Everyone Achieves More.  The French call it “esprit de corps” – the spirit of a group that makes the members want the group to succeed – home, job or church.  Your indicator to having it is what’s coming out of your mouth – complaint or encouragement.  How’s your team spirit?
