Week 3: Day 5
Community and Worship
Scripture to meditate on:
Therefore, brothers and sisters, since we have confidence to enter the Most Holy Place by the blood of Jesus, by a new and living way opened for us through the curtain, that is, his body, and since we have a great priest over the house of God, let us draw near to God with a sincere heart and with the full assurance that faith brings, having our hearts sprinkled to cleanse us from a guilty conscience and having our bodies washed with pure water. Let us hold unswervingly to the hope we profess, for he who promised is faithful. And let us consider how we may spur one another on toward love and good deeds, not giving up meeting together, as some are in the habit of doing, but encouraging one another—and all the more as you see the Day approaching. – Hebrews 10:19-25
Here we see the importance of community and worship in our spiritual journey so we can help each other to grow in our relationship with Jesus and with others.
Questions to ponder:
- How has community and worship played a role in your spiritual growth?
- In what ways can you be intentional about encouraging others in their faith journey?
- How does gathering with fellow believers contribute to your sense of spirituality?
