_Importance Of Fellowship_
Hebrews 10:24-25 Let us think of ways to motivate one another to acts of love and good works. 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.
The passage deals with the powerful role of a christian community and fellowship play in encouraging fellow Christians to grow and persevere in their faith
*To neglect can mean forsake or desert.* When we neglect our meeting together we stop growing. Meeting together causes spiritual growth because there is encouragement, motivation, learning, faith, and experiencing the powerful presence of God.
Some people don't attend church based on their lifestyle, relationships, judgments or their beliefs. This has become a habit for some. The devil convinces us into thinking that we do not need to get together by using our fears, insecurities and distractions of our busy lives to lure us into living independently.
Yet living in isolation leads to spiritual death.
This points to us to encourage one another and not just attending. We shouldn't boast in our frequent attendance in church and yet we don't check up on each other. Showing up is not the main thing but encouraging one another is the main thing that is why we come together. God's call is not just to come but to care and to be committed to others.
Therefore it's a plea to love one another at every opportunity you get, do not postpone doing acts of love and service.
Father help me be an encouragement to my neighbor in their time of need
