So now wrap your heart tightly around the hope that lives within us, knowing that God always keeps his promises! Discover creative ways to encourage others and to motivate them toward acts of compassion, doing beautiful works as expressions of love. This is not the time to pull away and neglect meeting together, as some have formed the habit of doing. In fact, we should come together even more frequently, eager to encourage and urge each other onward as we anticipate that day dawning.
Today we are going to personalize this Scripture for ourselves and use it as our prayer back to God.
Today I choose to wrap my heart tightly around the hope that lives within me because of Jesus, knowing that You always keep Your promises. Help me to discover creative ways to encourage others and to motivate them toward acts of compassion, engaging in beautiful works as expressions of the love You have showered on us. Encourage us to not pull away and neglect meeting together out of fear or pride or busyness, but help us to work even more diligently to come together with hearts eager to encourage each other and to cheer each other on as we anticipate the day when we will stand fully in Your presence. Amen.
