As we move into a new day of adjustments to our routine, how exhortations in the Scriptures are fleshed out may differ. For instance, in Hebrews 10:23-25 we are exhorted with the words, [Let us hold fast the confession of our hope without wavering, for He who promised is faithful. And let us consider how to stir up one another to love and good works, 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] An exhortation to encourage each other and to not neglect meeting together. The meeting together is for the purpose of supporting each other, praying for each other, connecting with each other for mutual uplifting.
How can we do that in our present reality? We are only limited by our imagination and spirit of adaptability. For example, two of our church family followed each other through the drive through and then parked next to each other, rolled down the windows and visited while they had their breakfast without leaving their car. Last night our GO group had Bible study via a Skype connection. In addition, a church member dropped off some supplies to us, while keeping a social distance. The supplies were welcome but not as much as the act that said, "We are in this together."
I encourage each of us to think outside the box and find ways of staying connected. Make a phone call, send a text, write to someone on messenger, send a letter.
Have a blessed day, Vic
