Pastor’s Probe

Encourage one another.

A few days ago, Patrick Tiernan was competing in the 10000 meters’ race in Tokyo. After running 9850 meters he began to stumble and he literally crawled to the finish line convincing his reluctant body to do what his mind wanted to do.

As he was preparing to look beyond his version of the “Australian crawl”, Patrick was banking on the support, the reassurances and the encouragement of those around him. He was confident that with all the support he is getting, he would be ready to compete at the Paris Olympics in 2024.

The Christian journey is not easy. Most of the time it is a crawl marked with pain, disappointment, failure and discouragement. One of the ways we should run is focusing on the Lord Jesus – the author and the finisher of our faith.

However, the bible reminds us that each Christian has a part to play in one another’s journey. We must consider how we may spur one another on towards love and good deeds, not to give up meeting together and encourage one another to grow spiritually. And we must to do this all the more as we see the Day approaching (Hebrews 10:24-25).

How can you cheer someone this week to keep going in their Cristian journey?
