Intentional Discipleship: Obeying the Command

“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


Tears filled my eyes and my heart ached as I listened to her story. I had been through my own life struggles too, but nothing I had dealt with seemed to even come close to touching her hurt. Legally blind, a diagnosis of multiple sclerosis, and a marriage wrecked by her husband’s pornography habits had brought this young mom to a place of numb desperation and loneliness. I listened, I prayed, but I worried. Why did she come to me? Who am I to help her? How can I touch her heart? Yet, I knew. He had given me preparation through His Word, my own progress, and in the love I had for this woman. It was now time to act on God’s command. It was time to love her well. It was time to obey.
