Assemble for Encouragement (Hebrews 10:24-25)

Sermon on 3 January 2021 by Ps Justin


Introduction


This is start of the 5-part series on Assembling.

Message

And let us consider one another in order to stir up love and good works, not forsaking the assembling of ourselves together, as is the manner of some, but let us encourage one another – and all the more as you see the Day approaching. – Hebrews 10:24-25


Encourage is so powerful. It changes lives. We need cheerleaders. If you don’t need encouragement, be the encourager, the cheerleader, to others.


We are told to assemble. Where do we assemble? In the church.

1. Stir up one another

We have to come together to stir up one another in love and good works. We have sinful hearts. Our hearts are deceitful. The devil is like a roaring lion, always on the prowl and looking for someone to devour. He will put thoughts in you. Therefore, you need people to encourage you.


See to it, brothers, that none of you has a sinful, unbelieving heart that turns away from the living God. But encourage one another daily, as long as it is called Today, so that none of you may be hardened by sin’s deceitfulness. – Hebrews 3:12-13


The way to stir up one another for love and good work is by gathering together. Gather together, and fix your eyes on the cross.


2. Encourage one another to not give up

It is easy to give up. Life is not a sprint but a marathon. You will come across difficult situations along the way. Focus on the light.


Weeping may endure for a night, but joy comes in the morning. – Psalm 30:5b


3. Encourage us to commit to one another

When we come together centred on Jesus, you will grow in your faith. Encouragement is like peanut butter – it binds bread, so let us stick together when we encourage one another. Be like braces. Hold everyone together. When someone goes off course, steer them back in the right direction.


Closing


During the end times, we will hate one another. Those who do not attend church, who do not read the bible, will become easy targets for deception. If you are a disconnected saint, you are living out of the will of God.


And then many will be offended, will betray one another, and will hate one another. Then many false prophets will rise up and deceive many. And because lawlessness will abound, the love of many will grow cold. But he who endures to the end shall be saved. – Matthew 24:10-13


You must stay connected. Encourage each other daily.
