Therefore, brothers and sisters, since we have confidence to enter the sanctuary by the blood of Jesus, by the fresh and living way that he inaugurated for us through the curtain, that is, through his flesh, and since we have a great priest over the house of God, let us draw near with a sincere heart in the assurance that faith brings, because we have had our hearts sprinkled clean from an evil conscience and our bodies washed in pure water.
And let us hold unwaveringly to the hope that we confess, for the one who made the promise is trustworthy.
And let us take thought of how to spur one another on to love and good works, not abandoning our own meetings, as some are in the habit of doing, but encouraging each other, and even more so because you see the day drawing near. Hebrews 10:19-25 NET
In this day of wickedness and corruption, how are we to live?
• In the Word of God,
• In His presence (worship), and
• We are to encourage each other.
To spur a horse is to dig the sharp spur into the tender flesh of the flank, just forward of the rear leg. It is uncomfortable for the horse and causes it to move forward quickly. We are to spur each other on to love and good works. To do this, we must gather together and have relationship with each other.
In the King James Version, the word used is provoke, in the NKJV, it’s stir up, and the NLT uses motivate. The original meaning of the word is stimulate.
Proverbs 27:17 says As Iron sharpens Iron, so a person sharpens his friend. We need each other, and not just to agree on everything. We are to spur each other toward love and good works.
