Thursday – Hebrews 10:24-25
You need the Body of Christ, and the Body of Christ needs you. Today’s passage hits on a very current theme. It is obvious that many who were alive when this chapter was written had stopped attending gatherings with other believers. They were lacking the community of the Spirit, and those who were still gathering were missing them. Have you ever stopped to think about what YOU offer to those in our community? We have already studied how every person has a specific role in the body. We understand that maintaining the unity within allows us to be most effective. Now, as we study the idea of accountability, we begin to see how two followers of Christ can actually encourage and spur on each other.
Our regular meetings for worship and Bible study are of absolute importance. When all those involved are present and mutually sharing with one another, the body is firing on all cylinders. However, when one part is absent, not only does that person miss out on the encouragement, accountability, and lessons he or she needs, the group is also missing what that individual brings to the table. Maybe that one person is the connection point for another follower of Christ. Maybe they know how to communicate with certain people while others find it more difficult. Blessings are missed when all the “body parts” are not present and carrying out their function. We all need community, actively committing to life together as people of God for the betterment of each other.
