Body-building Tip #44 – These thoughts are designed to help members of the body at Grace to encourage one another’s faith. Heb 3:13 “But exhort (encourage) one another every day, as long as it is called ‘today,’ that none of you may be hardened by the deceitfulness of sin.”

For you to ponder: The command to encourage one another every day implies a continuous, daily need. But why is such an emphasis on encouragement so important? The writer of Hebrews answers that question in the last half of the verse. Sin is very deceitful causing us to call evil good and good evil. Sin can distort our thinking to the point that we excuse all kinds of wrong actions and attitudes. After awhile we become hardened or insensitive to the awful consequences of sin. When the day comes to give account of our lives before Christ, we will suffer great loss.

Tip: Encouraging one another in the faith should be a very high priority for each of us at Grace. It ought to be on our minds every time we are together. Do you believe that obeying God’s Word brings the greatest joys to life? Do you believe that the judgment seat of Christ will be a very important time for every believer? Do you believe that praising God in both word and deed are commandments for us?

Challenge: Then will you help someone else say a more heartfelt “yes” to these questions? By sharing something God has taught you through His Word or by giving a reminder that Jesus is coming soon or by praising God for what He is doing in your own life, you can help others remain sensitive to sin.
