“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.
