me vs we
Me vs We
  • “ME FIRST” thinking will look like this:
    • Looks more for what they can receive from God rather than what they can share with others.
    • Comes and goes without connecting relationally with anyone. If you aren’t here would anyone miss you?
    • Cautious to share personal needs for fear of being vulnerable.
    • Refuse to get involved when others are struggling with an issue because it might require your time and attention.
    • Is often “too tired” or makes other excuses for not participating with the mission and vision of the church.
    • Quick to criticize others when your needs aren’t met.
    • Participates primarily in the worship service; avoids “small groups” and Sunday School.

    • Reaches out to others in prayer and in deeds.
    • Joins in small groups and Sunday School, relating with others in the group.
    • Seldom misses an opportunity to be together with the church knowing they have something to share and receive.
    • Connects with people throughout the week through prayer, cards, phone calls, and visits.

In The Church, There Is No Room For “Me”, But Lots of Room For “We”

  • Ephesians 2:19-22
    • “Consequently, you are no longer foreigners and strangers, but fellow citizens with God’s people and also members of his household, built on the foundation of the apostles and prophets, with Christ Jesus himself as the chief cornerstone. In him the whole building is joined together and rises to become a holy temple in the Lord. And in him you too are being built together to become a dwelling in which God lives by his Spirit.”
  • Ephesians 4:16
    • “From him the whole body, joined and held together by every supporting ligament, grows and builds itself up in love, as each part does its work.”
