“The Lord God said, “It is not good for the man to be alone. I will make a helper suitable for him.”
Genesis 2:18 NIV
“Greet Priscilla and Aquila, my fellow workers in Christ Jesus.”
Romans 16:3 NIV
Last week’s devotion discussed how the Bible is full of examples where men and women fulfilled their calling as co-workers. Romans 16 talks about Priscilla and Acquilla, a power couple who were doing amazing things to spread the gospel of Christ together. I’m glad to know there are more dynamic duos making Jesus famous in our world today!
Brian and Bobbie Houston co-founded the Hillsong Family of churches1. My daughter Shelby was an intern this year at Grace City Church2; a Hillsong Family Church where Drew and Christina Gard are the pastors. The church only started in September and already has 3 Sunday services! I believe the work has increased so quickly because this couple works in tandem.
The Bible says, “If one can put a 1000 to flight, two can put 10,000”.3

Rich Jr. and DawnChere Wilkerson co-pastor Vous church in Miami. They’re fulfilling their mission “To bring people that are far from God close to Him”4 in profound ways. Friends of mine, Reynold and Kathy Mainse are missionaries in Uganda shaking that part of the world up. As co-founders of World Embrace; “a non-profit organization on a mission to see the world transformed by unity”5, they sign off their prayer group emails, “Pursuing John 17 together so that the world will know Jesus!”6
So, let’s stop competing and start completing…cause there’s a lost world that needs to know about Him! Let’s partner together as co-workers and do something great, just like God planned, In The Beginning.
Father…I’m thankful that you have designed men and women to work together. Couples in the Bible and couples today. Open our eyes to see how we can fulfill your calling as Image-Bearers and co-workers to reach this world for You. Let our lives make You famous. In Jesus Name…Amen
