Not forsaking the assembling of ourselves together, as the manner of some is; but exhorting one another: and so much the more, as ye see the day approaching. Hebrews 10:25
To exhort is to comfort and encourage. We need each other. We ought to be encouraging one another, saying, “Isn’t God wonderful? Isn’t Jesus great? Don’t you love Him? What’s God doing in your life? How may I pray for you today?”
Among fellow believers, we live in a climate that keeps our hearts tender. When we stray from that climate and get away from the people of God by skipping worship services and fellowship opportunities, our hearts will grow hard.
When we encourage one another, we are sharing Christ. Fellowship among believers is vital for your spiritual growth. There’s something that happens in our hearts when we share in each other’s lives. We grow. We strengthen one another. Fellowship keeps our heart tender.
Do you have that kind of fellowship? Are you in community with fellow believers? If you had no earthly family—no parents, no brothers or sisters, you’d be an orphan. Don’t be a spiritual orphan. Fellowship with other believers is one of the greatest joys on earth.
