We often talk about taking the steps to get from “Point A” to “Point B”, but fail to realize that there are sometimes steps to the step. That’s right just to take a step, requires some steps! Think about it: In order to make a step, you have to raise your foot, move your foot and plant your foot!
Many times in the Bible, we will read Scriptures and think about the steps we need to take to get from where we are to where we need to be. Sometime what we need to be thinking about is not the steps, but the step! Someone said: “The journey of a thousand miles begins with a step!”
Hebrews 10:23-25 provides us with the anatomy of a step. A step that each of us must take if we are going on this amazing journey that our Creator has mapped out for us! Here is what that Scripture says: 23 Let us hold unswervingly to the hope we profess, for he who promised is faithful. 24 And let us consider how we may spur one another on toward love and good deeds, 25 not giving up meeting together, as some are in the habit of doing, but encouraging one another—and all the more as you see the Day approaching.
Notice the anatomy of a step in these verses: First – we must raise our foot by “Holding unswervingly to the hope we profess, for he who promised is faithful!” HOLD ON TO HOPE! Second – we must move our foot by “considering how we may spur one another on toward love and good deeds!” SPUR ON OTHERS TOWARD LOVE AND GOOD DEEDS! And third – we must plant our foot by “Not neglecting meeting together as some are in the habit of doing, but must encourage one another and all the more as we see the day approaching!” MEET ON AND ENCOURAGE EVERYONE YOU CAN!
Hold on, spur on and meet on – it takes all three to take and make a step. The beautiful and amazing thing, is once we take this step, we are on our way to an extraordinary journey! Enjoy the journey and G3 = Give God Glory!
