Hebrews 10:23, “Let us hold fast the confession of our hope without wavering, for He who promised is faithful. 24And let us consider how to stir up one another to love and good works, 25not 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.”

Mankind was created with the purpose of being in community, with God and with others. God created Adam to have a relationship with Him and He created Eve to have a relationship with Adam. Our very existence is centered around this idea of being in community. Today, there are a lot of people out there that are living their life, day by day, caught up in the business and stress of life who are not practicing this idea of community. I want to encourage everyone to find a church home and start living out this verse. If you are already connected to a good church and community, “consider how to stir up one another to love and good works.” Who can you offer love and encouragement to today?
