And let us consider how we may spur one another on toward love and good deeds. Let us not give up meeting together, as some are in the habit of doing, but let us encourage one another—and all the more as you see the Day approaching. (Hebrews 10:24-25)
Cooking shows are interesting to me. I love to see the different ways of preparing food, and the skills used by the instructors. They make it look so easy. Their passion for their craft is easily seen and felt. By watching them, I am encouraged to try their food creations.
I believe that is the same principle in the Christian journey. We can encourage each other with how we show love to one another, help one another, join in together for work of the kingdom, pray together, share what God is doing in our lives, and many other ways. But we have to keep doing it. It starts with us as individuals. Show your passion for Jesus. Others will be moved by it. We sometimes forget that the “Day” is approaching. Jesus is coming back. Let us spur each other on in response to that fact. People are watching, and they need your encouragement.
Prayer: I praise you, Jesus, knowing that today you have planned for me to encourage someone in the faith. You are coming back. May I prepare my heart and life for such a wonderful day, and encourage others to do the same. Amen.
Faith tip: Look for ways today to encourage someone with the love of Christ.
