STAYING CONNECTED NO ROUGE SOLDIERS

“not forsaking the assembly of our selves together as the manner of some but exhorting one another and even more as you see the day approaching

Heb 10:25

I have been doing a series about preparing for the end of the age and this verse will take on a more serious tone as we approach the end of the age. It’s going to become more and crucial to be connected to a group of believer’s in community or families connecting together in homes. It will be necessary to be able to stand and not just stand but thrive.

The word exhorting is a powerful word and according to Rick Renner in his book sparkling gems from the Greek this word depicts someone who is right alongside urging him or her, beseeching, begging him to make some kind of correct decision. In the ancient Greek world this word was often used by military leaders before they sent their troops into battle. You would have seen this in war movies. The leader would ride in front of the troops exhorting them to be strong and warning them to not be afraid and to remind them why they are even here. We are in the midst of a spiritual battle and we all get discouraged at times and we need each other to exhort us to keep going. We need others to come alongside to encourage us to keep going to face the battles. One of the metaphors used in the Bible of the church is it’s an army. There are no lone rangers in the Kingdom. Don’t let the enemy isolate you from other believer’s so he can pick you off. Stay in fellowship stay connected even more so if you are feeling discouraged or struggling. `
