Lenten Devotion: 2-19-16

February 19


FEBRUARY 18, 2016


Let us hold fast the confession of our hope without wavering, for He who promised is faithful; and let us consider how to stimulate one another to love and good deeds, not forsaking our own assembling together, as is the habit of some, but encouraging one another; and all the more as you see the day drawing near.                                                 Hebrews 10:23-25



There is a modern praise song, I Need YOU, written by lyricist, Hezekiah Walker.  Some of the words are:


I need you, you need me. We’re all a part of God’s body.
Stand with me, agree with me. We’re all a part of God’s body.

It is his will, that every need be supplied.
You are important to me, I need you to survive.
You are important to me, I need you to survive


I think that is a part of what the writer of Hebrews is communicating.  We must not give up meeting together.  We need one another — men and women, young and old, believer and doubter — to be spurred on to love and good deeds.  We need one another as sources of support and encouragement.


Thank God that we do not walk this Lenten journey alone, but together.
