Intentional Church Fellowship | Joni Tyner
S~ And let us not neglect our meeting together, as some people do, but encourage one another, especially now that the day of his return is drawing near. Hebrews 10:25 (NLT)
O~ The writer of Hebrews is reminding the Christian church to keep doing what they already know is good. They need to keep meeting with other believers and encourage others, especially during times of hardship.
A~ Over the years of attending church, I’ve seen fellow believers fizzle out and stop attending church and pull away from fellowship of other believers. Sometimes there is a specific reason that they stop going to church; Other times, it is a slow drift that slowly hardens their hearts and gives way to apathy. The result is the same—an absence of encouragement and accountability in their faith walk. This scripture is very clear that we need to continue to be intentional with our relationships with other believers. This journey was never meant to be done solo. We need other believers!!!
P~ Dear Lord, please give me vision to see fellow Christians who need encouragement. I want to be used by You to spur people on their faith journey. I pray for myself as well. Lord, I pray I find a tribe of women who understand me and encourage me and a church family that I can serve in and feel accepted and loved by others. I know this is a missing piece that is in my journey. I trust You that You will provide this encouragement to me.
