"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 10:25)
To exhort is to comfort and encourage. We need each other. We ought to be exhorting one another by saying, "Isn't God wonderful? Where would we be if we didn't have the Holy Spirit? Don't you just wish we were more like Jesus? Let's be true to Christ!"
We live in a climate that keeps our hearts tender. If we stray away from that climate by skipping worship services and fellowship opportunities, we will get away from the people of God and our hearts will grow hard. When we exhort one another, we are sharing Christ.
There's something that happens in our hearts when we tell others about Jesus. It keeps our hearts tender.
Read Proverbs 27:27. Are you this kind of friend? Do you have these kings of friends? If not, then ask God to help you be this kind of friend and bring you this kind of friend today!
