 Second String Christians 

Growing up I never wanted to be a second stringer. I was proud to play first string. I remember, though, a somewhat arrogant pity for those guys who sat on the sideline watching us win the game–only called on if we were stomping the visiting team so far beyond recognition, that even playing  second stringers could not lose the game.

First or second string Christians should not exist in The Body of Christ (The REAL Church). We are quick to push down those we rate as inferior as quickly as we promote others.

We thrill to the discussion of “leadership” and “church leaders” along with concepts so dated that one cannot help but think of the “favored star quarterback jock who got his choice of the cheerleaders.”

To what string have you been assigned?

To what string have you assigned?

Ephesians 4:16 From whom the whole body fitly joined together and compacted by that which every joint supplieth, according to the effectual working in the measure of every part, maketh increase of the body unto the edifying of itself in love.
