One of my favorite passages is Hebrews 10:19-25, which includes this:
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. (Hebrews 10:24-25 ESV)
I’ve written about this passage a few times, but I want to point out something that usually not taught.
According to this passage, there are two ways to “forsake (neglect) to meet together.” First, and the one that is often taught, is you can fail to meet with other believers.
But, the second way is just as important. You can also “forsake (neglect) to meet together” by failing to stir up love and good works among one another.
In other words, simply attending a meeting with other Christians (worship service, Bible study, small group, whatever) is not enough. You can still forsake meeting together even when you are attending.
