How great would it be to be described as God's co-worker? Not God's employee, God's servant, God's follower, but God's co-worker? Two people working side-by-side toward the same goal. What if Jesus introduced us as, "This is my co-worker ___"? What a privilege to be described that way and to hold that place.
That is just how Paul described Timothy in 1 Thessalonians 3:2. Timothy is "our brother and God's co-worker." If we seek God's goals in our station in life, then we are God's co-worker in raising families, teaching children, studying and working alongside others, feeding the hungry, comforting the grieving, spreading the gospel. God's work is a vast undertaking. He chooses to use many co-workers.
For Reflection: Where may I serve as God's co-worker today? Am I working alone or alongside Jesus?
Let us pray. God, it would help a lot if I could feel you beside me today as I go about my normal activities and any special activities you want me to do. I want to be your co-worker today.

I started this website and blog on May 1, 2012. I am a Catholic who has been in ministry for many years. I first developed what I would call a close relationship with Jesus in the early 1970s. Ever since then I have been praying with people for healing and other needs. It is because I have seen so many of these prayers answered that I am so bold as to offer to pray for you individually through this website and phone line.
