Do Not Neglect Meeting Together

We’re currently going through a preaching series on Hebrews at the church I have the immense privilege of serving in, and this next Sunday we’re going to be in Hebrews 10 and discussing an often quoted verse on why we continue to have church, Hebrews 10:24-25. The text reads, “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.”

We also are going through the fantastic book on worship through music by Bob Kauflin titled ‘Worship Matters.’ This past week we talked about the purpose of church. Looking at this text in Hebrews, we see that the purpose of getting together as the church is to “encourage one another” and to “stir up one another to love and good works.” So many times we approach church with the attitude of, “What can I get from church this weel?” We’ve completely turned the purpose of church around. I hate to break it to you, but the world doesn’t revolve around you. So who did you encourage at church this past Sunday and who can you encourage this coming Sunday?

For more Scripture on this topic, see 1 Corinthians 14:26, Ephesians 5:19 and Colossians 3:16. Ultimately, let’s “outdo one another in showing honor.” (Rom 12:10)
