Spur One Another


The bible encourages believers to encourage one another. In one instance, it describes brotherly fellowship and encouragement as if it were iron sharpening iron. Hebrews 10:24 tells us that we should spur on another on. It says:

"And let us consider how we may spur one another on toward love and good deeds."

In light of this verse, I'd like to encourage you toward love and good deeds. Over the years, I've thought a lot about the idea of love. Do I really love my neighbor? Do I really love those in the church? What is love anyway? Is it a deep positive feeling for someone, or is it an act? I believe that love is something that first starts in the heart, but can also manifest itself in actions. Sometimes we have to will ourselves to love others. Jesus tells us that we are to love our enemies. I think that takes a level of will. It also says that people will know we are Christians by how we love one another. I encourage you to show love this week. To who you ask? Everyone. And good deeds is one way to show love. If God lays someone on your heart, don't hesitate to give them a kind word, lend them a helping hand, or bless them in some way. God explains that love is a key character make-up of every true follower of Christ, so I encourage you to show love and do good deeds.


Hebrews tells us that we should consider how we may spur one another on toward love and good deeds. Therefore, I encourage you to do just that. Store up treasures in heaven by doing the work of the Lord here on earth. And one command from our Lord is to love one another. Send a card to someone, perform a random act of kindness, be a blessing to someone. In short, consider how you can show love and how you can do good deeds.
