. . And let us consider how we may spur one another on toward love and
good deeds. Let us not give up meeting together, as
some are in the habit of doing, but let us encourage one another-- and
all the more as you see the Day approaching.
(NIV) Heb 10:24-25
Perhaps we have lowered the biblical meaning here so that when we think of "encouraging one another," we think of just uplifting others during their times of trouble. Certainly we should do that, but we need to be spurring one another along in our roles as servants of Christ.
All the more as the Day approaches it is important that we be about the Father's business
It is appropriate during church fellowship to make time for encouraging one another “toward love and good deeds.” It may be a chance meeting before or following worship services. The pastor in his sermons may choose to emphasize the importance of the laity spurring one another on toward love and good deeds.
The Sunday School superintendent could adapt lesson plans, if this topic is not already included. Study groups and Sunday classes are an ideal environment for spurring one another toward love and good deeds.
Loving others, particularly those who are unlovable, is hard without the support of another Christian. It makes sense that the apostle writes about each of us helping the other in this important aspect of Christianity.
