We need the gifts and strengths of others to complement our own, the gracious correction that keeps us aligned with biblical truth, and the encouragement to endure even in hard times.
As Christians, we need each other, and we need each other face to face. It’s not enough to watch services online. We need to meet together in person. When we gather in worship, we discover that we truly are better together.
That is exactly the theme of this month’s series—“Better Together.” We have been looking at what the book of Hebrews has to say about the importance of meeting as a church.
God designed us in such a way that we need each other in order to experience the greatest growth in our walk with Him. We need the gifts and strengths of others to complement our own, the gracious correction that keeps us aligned with biblical truth, and the encouragement to endure even in hard times.
These days we need all the encouragement we can get. We need to meet together to inspire and exhort one another. We need the fellowship and community of physically being together.
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
May we truly appreciate the privilege God has given us in being able to meet as a church body. May we not neglect this opportunity, but seek out ways we can continue to stir each other to growth and good works.
One resource you may find encouraging in your own walk with the Lord is my new book Everyday Holiness. You don’t have to pick between being boring and being bad. There is a better way: a biblical understanding of holiness. I hope you’ll request a copy today to discover the path to becoming who you are in Christ.
