Hebrews 10:24-25 NIV
And let us consider how we may spur one another on toward love and good deeds, not giving up meeting together, as some are in the habit of doing, but encouraging one another—and all the more as you see the Day approaching.
To spur one another means to encourage each other. Has someone ever needed your shoulder to cry on? Or maybe needed a word of encouragement before a big test, project, meeting or just for life in general? Perhaps someone needed a helping hand to move furniture or couldn’t afford to get their groceries. No matter how big or small the gesture or deed is, we must always encourage each other and care for one another.
Sometimes it can be tempting to turn down meeting with a friend or a family member. It always seems like someone wants to get coffee or lunch when the time just isn’t right for you. Life is too busy at the moment or work is bogging you down, but we should always consider gathering with each other when the opportunity arises. God works through us each and every day in many unique ways transforming and changing us and we should be sure to encourage and gather with one another through it all.
As we continue on each day approaching the day that Jesus returns, negativity and evilness becomes more subtle day in and day out. It becomes more and more difficult every day to decipher what is good and what is bad, or to see what is truth and what is not or what is right and what is wrong. False concepts and deceitful lies that deny the powerful Word of God is present within our society more now than ever. We need to gather together and be with each other throughout these times and share the Good News with each other and share the love that Jesus has for us. We should love one another like Jesus loves us. There is no greater love than the love that God has for us and we must always spur one another toward love and good deeds and never miss the opportunities that allow us to gather with each other and care for one another.
Prayer: Father, thank you for the opportunity we receive every day to encourage others through love and good deeds. Help me to not neglect meeting together with other believers and paying attention to the fact that the Day is drawing near. We pray that we can be accountable with each other and that we can continue to love one another like you love us God.
In your precious Sons name, Amen.
