Unity in the Spirit

Unity in the Spirit

Dr. Ben Sawatsky

  1. I will recognize the call and      gifts from God in all of my co-workers.
  2. I will exercise vigilance over      our unity.
  3. I commit to speaking well of my      coworker brothers and sisters and will publicly express appreciation for      them.
  4. I will pray diligently and fervently      for the blessing of God on my teammates.
  5. I will affirm the co-equal      importance of planting, watering and supporting ministries.
  6. I will shoulder responsibility      for the ministry assigned to me and at the same time exercise prayerful      concern for the field’s ministry in its entirety.
  7. I understand that in the “heat of      the battle” there will be misunderstandings, conflicts and offenses.
  8. I will deal with offenses      promptly and appropriately.
  9. I will listen intently in order      to understand the other person’s perspective.
  10. I will avoid judging the motives      of a fellow worker, because I cannot see my brother or sister’s heart.
  11. I will forgive others on the team      without hesitation or precondition, knowing that I, too, will need      frequent forgiveness for my offenses.
  12. I will commit myself to becoming      better acquainted with the members of my team.
