“…and let us consider how to stimulate one another to love and good deeds, not forsaking our own assembling together, as is the habit of some, but encouraging one another…”
"From time to time someone will say to me, “I’m a Christian but I don’t think you have to go to church. I worship God in my own way.”
I don’t believe in “Lone Ranger” Christians. This verse in Hebrews directs us to gather together with other believers. That sure sounds like church to me!
At church we motivate one another, love one another, do good deeds for one another, encourage one another … well, you get the idea.
Being with other believers at church fuels the fire of our walk with the Lord, making it a winning walk.
