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.
