Encourage One Another



“Let us not give up meeting together, as some are in the habit of doing,
 but let us encourage one another—all the more as you see the Day approaching.”
Hebrews 10:25 (NIV)

The writer to the Hebrews advises his readers to stay in the habit of meeting with like-minded believers in worship. He instructs his readers, then and now, to both encourage others and gain encouragement by being together in worship and in learning situations devoted to the Lord.

He gives us reason to establish this practice:
· Time of Christ’s return is coming soon. We need to be ready.
· Our presence in worship gives us strength to face the future.
· Our presence encourages others who may be going through a hard time.

We live in a fallen world. We need to connect with the LORD to guide us through.

  1. Everyone needs encouragement, all the time... And often we are slow to give out (much quicker with criticism). The Bible calls for us to encourage one another, only God knows how much we need it!

  2. Marja: Thank you for visiting my blog. I have had to LEARN to be encouraging rather than critical. We all need to practice encouraging one another. It is a spiritual gift.

  3. Hi Cecelia! I agree with you 100%. I really need my community, and I think The Lord wired us that way. He knows that alone, we can falter, fall way, and just feel alone. When we are together, we can encourage each other and support each other, just by our presence. Can't hear this message enough!
    Blessings,

    1. Ceil, Thank you for your beautiful comments. Ido struggle with 'being there ' for my friends. I have to figure out my schedule and how being available for them will mesh.

  4. I don't know what we'd do without our Christian friends, our church and the encouragement we receive from them all. Yes and amen.

    1. Rhonda: Thank you for your thought. I have found my Church family to be more understanding than those of my biological family. Enjoy both your families this weekend.

I would be honored to hear what you think about this.
