When I read Hebrews 10:24-25, I hear God saying, “You are participating in a divine journey that I have called you to. And everyone you meet is a divine appointment–an opportunity to shine the love that I put in your heart and reflect My true nature to them. This is the best way to love them, point them to Me, and ultimately to encourage them in THEIR life journey.”

What the passage actually says is “and let us consider how to stimulate one another to love and good deeds, not forsaking our own assembling together, as is the habit of some, but encouraging one another, and all the more as you see the day drawing near.”

When you read it, which do you hear, a command or a divine privilege? Before you answer, remember, our Father loves us with a tenderness beyond compare.

I hope this encourages you today.
