Do not neglect meeting together!
May we remember in this new year that we are ALL needed in God’s Kingdom! We ALL have a Gift to be used for the Glory of God! May we be committed to God and to one another!
May we attend our churches with a renewed awareness of our place in the Kingdom! May we attend with our souls on fire with passion for the King of kings and Lord of lords!! It’s a New Day! Embrace it!!
“And let us consider how to stir up one another to love and good works, not neglecting to meet together, as is the habit of some, but encouraging one another, and all the more as you see the Day drawing near.”
Hebrews 10:24-25 ESV
I know that in life and in our churches there can be a lot of “stirring up” that happens.
Sometimes this stirring is needed to bring things that have settled to the bottom back up to the top. And anything that needs to be scooped off the top as it surfaces can be dealt with.
Sometimes the stirring can be positive and sometimes the stirring can be negative. And sometimes it may seem to be negative at the beginning…but have positive results.
Hebrews tells us that our stirring should result in love and good works. We need to encourage one another – stir each other up – to love more abundantly and to serve others in greater works of goodness.
Lord, begin with me! Stir me up to love and good works!!
You can do it!!!
