Spurring One Another On

Published: Sunday, 21 January 2018

Hebrews 10:19-25, Hebrews 10:23-25 (NIV2011) "23 Let us hold unswervingly to the hope we profess, for he who promised is faithful. 24 And let us consider how we may spur one another on toward love and good deeds, 25 not giving up meeting together, as some are in the habit of doing, but encouraging one another—and all the more as you see the Day approaching."

When Jesus died on the cross for our sins, it changed the way we relate to both God and each other.
We can now relate to God:
• With confidence v19, Exodus 20:19
• By a new and living way v20, Romans 6:23
• Through Jesus our High Priest v21, Hebrews 10:11-12
• With cleansed hearts v22
• With unswerving hope v23

We can now relate to one another:
• By spurring one another on v24a, 1 Thessalonians 5:11
• Toward love and good deeds v24b, James 2:14-17
• By meeting together v25, Romans 12:5
With Jesus Christ as our Great High Priest, let us at Naringal spur one another on to be “the light of Christ to our rural community.”
1 Peter 2:4-5 (NIV2011) "4 As you come to him, the living Stone—rejected by humans but chosen by God and precious to him— 5 you also, like living stones, are being built into a spiritual house to be a holy priesthood, offering spiritual sacrifices acceptable to God through Jesus Christ." 

Finest robe, ring and sandals - a homecoming.

One of the biggest hurdles and things that weigh us down is what we think others think of us. If  you want to get to know Jesus, or already are a follower of Jesus, maybe one extra thing you battle with is how God, the Father sees you. You can probably cope with the concept of Jesus 'by our side' and maybe you'll even get your head around the holy Spirit living in us as our counsellor. Can you possibly be wrong about how God, the Father, thinks of you?

One of the most heart revealing stories that Jesus told is the one about 'the prodigal son'. In it Jesus reveals what God the Father really thinks about you. It's really worth reading so here's a link to the story in the new testament part of the Bible, and, a paraphrased version here. Also, here's a link to a Skitguys video.

We would love to see you all again next week at Naringal Church.
