“And let us consider how we may spur one another on toward love and good deeds, not giving up meeting together, as some are in the habit of doing, but encouraging one another—and all the more as you see the Day approaching.”
Hebrews 10:24-25

Reflecting on these verses, I notice the way they list elements of community that happen simultaneously. Instead of these verses being a checklist of things we need to do in order to have community, I see the way so much health and growth comes when all of these elements are being practiced organically and consistently: spurring one another on, continuing to meet together, encouraging one another, all the while doing it with intentionality, not forgetting that all of our time on earth is limited.

Have you experienced community that has all of those elements at work? If so, you know how it naturally fuels up the whole group to go deeper, both in faith and on mission together!
