Motivating One Another

Today's Scripture: Hebrews 8-10
Read it online at the Bible Gateway: (NIV) (NASB) (KJV) (The Message)

I long to see you so that I may impart to you some spiritual gift to make you strong. - Romans 1:11

From time to time I'm asked what I've found to be the most important principles of Christian living. Of course, the answer could be approached from many angles, but when it comes to our daily walk of discipleship, I usually talk about three principles of living from Hebrews 10 that begin with the two words, "Let us."

First, there is Hebrews 10:22: "Let us draw near to God with a sincere heart in full assurance of faith." This has to do with our fellowship with God. We can call it quiet time, personal devotions, or whatever. The important thing is to set aside time each day to draw near to the Lord.

Verse 23 gives the second "Let us": "Let us hold unswervingly to the hope we profess." This deals with our outreach to the lost through personal witness. We are to hold the confession of our faith high like a banner, never growing silent, and never denying the Lord who has bought us for Himself.

Verse 24 gives the third principle: "Let us consider how we may spur one another on toward love and good deeds." We are to encourage and motivate each other in the Christian life. And, of course, one of the best ways to do that is to meet together regularly to worship God and get instruction from His Word.

The Christian life is personal, but it is not private. We are an interdependent body. And this call to be a spiritual motivator is given to all of us, not just the church leadership or full-time Christian worker.


Lord, thank You for the encouragement You give me through my brothers and sisters in Christ. Amen.

To Ponder

Let us draw near to God; let us hold up our witness; let us encourage one another.
