Power of Partnership

You’ve heard it before: there is strength in numbers. But implicit in that statement is that these numbers work together for mutual advantage. At minimum, there has to be agreement among them; otherwise, they cannot walk together (Amos 3:3). Ideally, an amiable relationship would make their strength even greater. The stronger the relationship, the greater the things they can accomplish together.

For example, when the people of earth gathered together to build a temple up to heaven, the Lord said, “Indeed the people are one and they all have one language, and this is what they begin to do; now nothing that they propose to do will be withheld from them” (Gen. 11:6, NKJV).

And then read this passage:

“Two are better than one, Because they have a good reward for their labor. For if they fall, one will lift up his companion. But woe to him who is alone when he falls, For he has no one to help him up. . . . Though one may be overpowered by another, two can withstand him. And a threefold cord is not quickly broken.”

Ecclesiastes 4:9-10 and 12, NKJV

These examples communicate a very simple principle of how things work in the natural. But this is also how they work in the spiritual.

Jesus said,

“If two of you agree on earth concerning anything that they ask, it will be done for them by My Father in heaven. For where two or three are gathered together in My name, I am there in the midst of them.”

Matthew 18:19-20, NKJV

When brethren dwell together in unity, that is where God commands the blessing (Ps. 133)! Perhaps a good example of this is partnership. You see, partnership is two or more people coming together for mutual advantage. They want to accomplish something that they could not accomplish alone or separately. More often than not, it will take finances. Look at what Andrew says in his Power of Partnership teaching:

“Did you know that you can’t really accomplish God’s will in your life without finances? I know that that may be an offensive statement to some people, but it costs money to live, to travel, to minister to people, to put out products, to have employees. Whether it’s a church, whether it’s a ministry, anything that is preaching the Gospel, you cannot accomplish it without money, and somehow people think, Well, no, I’m just going to do what God tells me, and I don’t ever have to think about money. You need money to accomplish what God told you to do . . . . It’s a heart attitude that you don’t want to prosper just for yourself; you want to prosper so that you can accomplish God’s will, so that you can touch people, so that you can be a blessing.”

Ultimately, what we can accomplish through partnership is discipleship. Because it is a spiritual bond, Jesus is in the midst of it, and there God commands the blessing. It really isn’t about money; it’s about relationship. And that is what makes partnership powerful!
