"And let us consider one another in order to stir up love and good works, not forsaking the assembling of ourselves together, as is the manner of some, but exhorting one another, and so much the more as you see the Day approaching."
Hebrews 10:24-25 highlights to us just how important it is that we meet up with our brothers and sisters in Christ as 'the Day' approaches.
All the more we should be having fellowship.
Why is it so important that we get together regularly?
As it mentions in the scripture above, when we meet, we are building each other up in the Lord.
1 Corinthians 14:26 says "What then, brothers? When you come together, each one has a hymn, a lesson, a revelation, a tongue, or an interpretation. Let all things be done for building up."
As 'the Day' draws near, it is becoming harder for us as Christians to stand firm in our beliefs. If we stand up and tell people that we believe everything that the bible says, (for example, God calls homosexuality an abomination (Leviticus 18:22, 1 Corinthians 6:9-10)) this will result in us being heavily persecuted.
Does that mean that we stay quiet and just go with what this world says is now "normal"?
NO, OF COURSE NOT!
True Christians should be standing in this day and age for what they know to be right (according to the bible). For example, we know that God says one man and one woman should be married. Therefore, we should not be supporting anyone who is in a relationship other than that.
Staying silent is NOT an option.
Just as Peter denied Christ 3 times, that is exactly what we are doing by staying silent.
How can we be ambassadors for Jesus if people don't even know what we believe?
Let us meet up with the brethren for the building up of one another and ask God for strength as we get persecuted for standing for His name's sake.
"and you will be hated by all for my name's sake. But the one who endures to the end will be saved." -Matthew 10:22
