Lifting and Strengthening

Here is an important and powerful passage from Hebrews, written to those who are struggling and suffering about those who are struggling and suffering:

Therefore lift up drooping hands and strengthen weak knees,  and make straight paths for your feet, so that what is lame may not be put out of joint but rather be healed.  Strive for peace with everyone, and for the holiness without which no one will see the Lord, seeing to it that no one fails to obtain the grace of God; that no “root of bitterness” springs up and causes trouble, and by it many become defiled… (Hebrews 12:12-15)

Who are you lifting up and strengthening today? To whom do your paths run so that you can help them heal? With whom are you striving for peace? Whose life are you examining so that you can help them obtain God’s grace?

    I woke up not long ago and realized I was playing church. I wasn’t BEING what God needed me to be, a servant to the believers. When we serve one another then we are being the church.
