Let us hold fast the confession of our hope without wavering, for He who promised is faithful; and let us consider how to stimulate one another to love and good deeds, not forsaking our own assembling together, as is the habit of some, but encouraging one another; and all the more as you see the day drawing near. (Hebrews 10:23-25)
As a Mom Heart group leader and teacher, you are putting into practice what the writer of Hebrews told those early Christians they needed to do to be confident on the journey of faith. You are “assembling together” to “hold fast the confession of our hope” and to “stimulate one another to love and good deeds” so that you all can be women known for “encouraging one another” as you live your lives together for Christ. Ask yourself the following questions to help you press in and press on in your vital, biblical ministry to women:
• How can I “hold fast the confession” of all that I hope for in Christ? What can cause me to be “wavering” about that hope? What will help me be strong in faith?
• What “promises of God” strengthen my faith and steady my hope? How have I seen God be “faithful” to me and my family?
• How can I lead and tend my Mom Heart group so that we “stimulate one another to love and good deeds”? How can I make sure that we are “encouraging one another” every time we are together?
• Is there anything that could make me want to “throw away [my] confidence” in Christ? How can I protect against that in the times when I “have need of endurance” so that I will be able to do the will of God.
