Stir each other up

And let us consider and give attentive, continuous care to watching over one another, studying how we may stir up (stimulate and incite) to love and helpful deeds and noble activities–Hebrews 10:24

I have three friends with whom I sometimes go to lunch or have coffee. We often talk about things God has put on our hearts to do for others or creative ideas for fresh ways to be a blessing. I believe conversations like this are very pleasing to God.

The idea of encouraging others to be aggressive in doing good works is not new. Hebrews 10:24 says we should consider one another in order to stir up love and good works and loving, helpful needs.

Following God by myself is powerful, but I find that it’s so much more enjoyable with friends. I would like to challenge you to find like-minded people who want to follow God. Plan a get-together so you can brainstorm about practical ways to live out a Christian life. Find ways that you can serve God and live out His love together.
