“let us consider one another to provoke unto love and to good works:”
The message of the Gospel is that Christ has come to defeat sin.
At it’s heart this is what drives ChurchCare–that Christ has transformed our lives and has called us to overflow his work in the lives of others. In Hebrews God calls every believer to find rest in the Gospel of Christ and calls us to be actively involved in the lives of others. We are actually called to “provoke” others to greater love and service to Christ.
Having therefore, brethren, boldness to enter into the holiest by the blood of Jesus, By a new and living way, which he hath consecrated for us, through the veil, that is to say, his flesh; And having an high priest over the house of God; Let us draw near with a true heart in full assurance of faith, having our hearts sprinkled from an evil conscience, and our bodies washed with pure water. Let us hold fast the profession of our faith without wavering; for he is faithful that promised; And let us consider one another to provoke unto love and to good works: 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.
At the core of what ChurchCare hopes to support in the life of the churches it serves is the concept of life on life discipleship – having received grace, that believers would in turn help others to the same.
