Be Still . . .
Devotionals for Daily Living
Let us hold unswervingly to the hope we profess, for he who promised is faithful. And let us consider how we may spur one another on toward love and good deeds. Let us not give up meeting together, as some are in the habit of doing, but let us encourage one another–and all the more as you see the Day approaching.
(Hebrews 10:23-25 (NIV))
The church (people, and not buildings) must not forsake meeting together. The people of God need each other to lift each other up, encourage each other, and to pray for each other.
Members of all sorts of organizations hold weekly or monthly meetings. If a bridge club can meet weekly to play cards, can we, as believers, not meet to share what God has done in our lives? These other clubs are trivial when compared to the “group” leader that we have.
Can a deck of cards grant eternal salvation?
Can a tennis club membership redeem you?
Can a country club free you from the consequences of the laws of sin and death?
Do you give more time to your social “clubs” and hobbies than you do to God?
What are your priorities? What do you hold to?
