23 Let us hold fast the confession of our hope without wavering, for he who promised is faithful. 24 And let us consider how to stir up one another to love and good works, 25 not neglecting to meet together, as is the habit of some, but encouraging one another, and all the more as you see the Day drawing near. Hebrews 10:23-25
Stir up there in verse 24 caught my eye – I’ve learned to heed such a pause as being God having something to say to me – and as I looked into it I see the word is an active kind of word. To incite or provoke is a little stronger than merely telling somebody something. Perhaps to inspire others, or motivate them.
