Hebrews 10:23 Let us hold fast the profession of our faith without wavering; (for he is faithful that promised;) 24 And let us consider one another to provoke unto love and to good works:
Often we look at politicians and wonder if they are even from the same planet. We wonder out loud what it would be like if they could actually get along.
Guess what, it isn’t going to happen. You know what is sadder?
When the church cannot get along. Too many in the church want their way or else. Now don’t get me wrong, when it comes to the word of God, there is no my way or your way, it is just His way.
We, however, are to work with one another in the spirit of love and unity to spread the gospel to those in need of a Savior. We need to work with one another to help those in need of food and clothing and shelter, and yes, encouragement.
Let’s get this right.
We are to be strong in our faith and we are supposed to help others produce love and good works. Ask yourself these questions.
- Who have I encouraged to come along side of me and help in the work?
- Who have I encouraged with the Love of Jesus today?
- Do others see the love of Christ displayed in my life on a day-to-day basis?
- Do I use the excuse that things just are not going good for me right now as justification for be disconnected and un-engaged with the body?
Isn’t it time for His body to do what He says for us to do? Join me today in putting into practice Hebrews 10:23-24 and let’s encourage someone in their faith today. Remember God loves you and so do I.
