Hebrews 10:25 Let us not give up meeting together, as some are in the habit of doing, but let us encourage one another — and all the more as you see the Day approaching.
What is it that excites you so much that you would encourage and invite someone else to attend or try what excites you? I have heard of people who were so excited about their hairstylist that they encouraged others to try her/him. Some are so excited about a certain school teacher that they talk them up to other parents. You don’t have to be on Facebook long before you hear what someone is excited about – and liking this or that and encouraging you to do the same.
Are we excited about Jesus? I mean are excited – by grace – to be a redeemed child of God? Do we invite people to give Jesus a try? Are we willing to be ridiculed because of how excited we are about Jesus? Or do we keep our excitement for Jesus quite – while letting the world know what football team we support?
Are we excited about our local church? (If not, we need to help make it a church that we would be excited to invite people to attend.) Are we drawn into a deeper relationship with Jesus through our involvement in our local church? (If not, what are we doing to change this and help our church body be more like Christ desires?)
The Scripture says; Let us not give up meeting together, as some are in the habit of doing, but let us encourage one another — and all the more as you see the Day approaching. How much clearer can God make it? We are called to meet together – to collect in one place and worship God. We are not to stay home – as some are in the habit of doing – but we are to encourage them to come out and join us. And all the more as we see the last days approaching. (And folks – we are getting closer to the last days.)
Are you excited about Jesus? Are you excited about your local church? If not, why not? If so, you gotta tell somebody – invite them to get to know Jesus and to join your local congregation!
Just something to think about today as you go on your way.
