Stir Up Love
"Let us hold fast to the confession of our hope without wavering. For He who called us is faithful." Hebrews 10:23
God is faithful and not like anything or anyone we’ve known before. God’s faithfulness is based on truth, His love for us, and His grace and mercy. Our hope in Christ is not misplaced, but proven throughout history. Daily I see it in my life--not because of me--but because He does what He says.
"And let us consider how to stir up one another to love and good works."
As God’s love and grace is poured into us, let us encourage one another in the same way. He is genuinely interested in us and His example is one we should follow. If you know someone in need, pray for them. Let them know you care. Send a card or a text telling a friend you’re thinking about them. Bring someone coffee or flowers to brighten their day.
"Not neglecting to meet together as is a habit of some, but encouraging one another and all the more as you see the day drawing near." Hebrews 10:25
Fellowship doesn’t end with the church service. We need each other more than ever. This world is so messed up. We have to live in the world and not be part of it. That can be exhausting, so refresh each other with the joy of the Lord.
"And Jonathan, Saul’s son, arose and went to David and encouraged him in God."
1 Samuel 23:16
The love of God refreshes and renews. Sometimes He puts people in our lives to be His hands and feet. He also uses us in the same way.
