“My purpose is that they may be encouraged in heart and united in love, so that they may have the full riches of complete understanding, in order that they may know the mystery of God, namely Christ.”Colossians 2:2
My husband and I saw many people come to faith in Christ when we were involved in church planting. I especially loved the season of discipleship that followed conversion. Sharing the transforming power of Christ is a joyful privilege. And years later we still have contact with several of these dear folks.
The writer of Hebrews admonishes believers to encourage each other daily so that the heart does not become sinful, unbelieving, and hardened (see 3:13a). Gathering together in our faith communities offers us regular opportunity to be united in love and to grasp the unfolding mystery of God in Jesus Christ.
Let’s commit ourselves to being those who lift each other up with words and actions of love and blessings.
