“And let us consider one another to provoke unto love and to good works: Not forsaking the assembling of ourselves together, as the manner of some is; but exhorting one another: and so much the more, as ye see the day approaching.” – Hebrews 10:24-25 (KJV)
We are to acknowledge others. Let them know that someone cares for them. How will they know if you do not provoke them with love and helpful activities? This is where you come in my brother or sister in Christ. Look around your community for needs to be met. As a Christian, it is your duty to assist others (if you can). Give continuous care by checking out on them. It doesn’t cost you anything to show God’s true agape love. If you need some help in giving, stirring, provoking others, practice random acts of kindness. This should incite and stimulate you to do it again. This is a good deed in the sight of God. You can take care of the widows, poor, and needy in your community. The bible states in Proverbs 14:31, “He who oppresses the poor reproaches, mocks, and insults his Maker, but he who is kind and merciful to the needy honors Him.”
What an honorable thing by evangelizing your community? The good news of Jesus Christ is shown by your light of God from your actions. Your reasonable service is to tell others about the gift of grace. No one is condemned and that God sent his Son to deliver them from their sins; a separator from the presence of the Heavenly Father God. No one needs to be apart from Him. Right?! Stir yourself up by studying to show yourself approve unto God. Go out in your community and do the Great Commission.
In the meantime, forsake not fellowship with other Believers in Him, go to your local assembly to receive boldness to serve the Lord. Maybe, they might have some suggestions for you, or help with your efforts. If you are unsure why you are going to church, please take our free praise and worship bible study course. One of the lessons will explain this question for you. I encourage you to check them out and learn more and more. Going to church is a habit for some, but exhorting one another (warning, urging, and encouraging) is more important seeing we are approaching the end of this age is drawing near.
Help your community and those individuals who practice sinning every day. You can show them that Jesus Christ is Lord over All Things!
