We heard a tremendous message tonight from our Pastor. It was a blessing to be able to be in God’s house once again tonight.
Pastor preached tonight out of Hebrews 10:22-24 on “The Importance of Considering One Another.” There is a difference between a saved person and a Christian. Going to church does not make you saved and it doesn’t make you a Christian. Being a Christian should be a career for us. We should consider one another in fellowship. The word provoke means to excite or to call into action. It will grow us. We should provoke unto love and good works. Be around someone that makes us want to be like them. What makes a Christian go? Someone provoking them unto love and good works is what makes a Christian go. Provoke unto love. We’re never going to love too much. A real Christian needs real Christians. Also we should consider one another in faithfulness. We can be cold on God and still be in church. We should also provoke one another in faithfulness. We are faithful because we love the Lord and we love others. Our appearance in church can be a blessing to someone else. When we get unfaithful we are saying we don’t need prayer, or others, or studying the Bible. People do quit on God and the church. There is nothing more discouraging than to see someone quit. When we quit we don’t just affect our selves, but we affect others. We affect everyone else around us. We should not forsake the church because we learn things from the preaching of the Word of God that we wouldn’t learn at home. The closer we get to God the more we will provoke others to live for God. Those that don’t care about God only care about themselves. There is no room for neglect in the house of God. One step can ruin our life and our testimony. Lastly we should consider others in our finishing. We should exhort others. Kids don’t want to go to church because they are not exhorted by their parents. We need to have some excitement about us. We should exhort one another to live for God. If we’re not encouraged by the little things, the big things won’t encourage us either. Whatever we do for God, we should do with all of our heart. Do you consider others, or is your life consumed with just you? As Christians we should be concerned about others.
