1Let Us…"Let us consider how we may spur one another on towards love and good deeds. Hebrews 10:24 Means (in part): Holding one another individually accountable---prayerfully, obediently, lovingly, and non-judgmentally crying out against sin in the lives of individuals in the body, even though it may mean risking friendships or relationships.
2Let Us…Corinthians 1:4 Who comforts us in all our tribulation, that we may be able to comfort them which are in any trouble, by the comfort wherewith we ourselves are comforted of God.
3Let UsBecause we have been comforted in our tribulation we have opportunity to help someone who is going through a similar situation by sharing our stories. Stories of how God remained faithful and brought us out, how He kept us during our trial. How He's still God, He still loves us and desires that we walk in victory and freedom.
4Let UsWe received comfort from God, and therefore are able to administer comfort to others by pointing them to the Father of mercies and the God of all comfort. II Cor 1:3.
5Let Us…What binds us together as the family of God is what Paul wrote in Ephesians:"One Lord, One Faith, One Baptism, One God and Father of all." Even with all our different shapes and sizes, we all belong to the same family through Christ.
6Let Us…The question is "Do we recognize that?" And, are we making every effort to maintain the unity of the Spirit in the bond of peace?“What unites us as believers is far more important than what separates us.
7Let Us Restore our covenant with Christ. Walk in confidence of His assurances and promises.Meditate on the assurances of Christ night and day.
8What “Let Us” MeansThe definition of "us," means ALL, Together, "One Unit, One Spirit!““Let us" begin by reaching out and taking care of our own, meaning family in need either financially, spiritually, emotionally etc...(general support) – Acts 2: 42-47
9Let Us Practice within before trying to go outside. Let us receive clarity in our vision and conviction by the spirit in the direction we are to move.
10Let UsTo reach out to each other, connect to others, in spite of barriers that we all put up. We need to understand that it is not about us. With that attitude, we can connect with one another.
11What “Let Us” MeansPeople are broken and hurting. Let us make changes to connect to one another, talk to someone you have never talked with before.Make the connection.
12What “Let Us” MeansLet us draw near to God (Prayer, fasting, interceding)Let us hold unswervingly to hope without doubt or hesitation. (Hold onto Christ our hope, life giver, future blessings and victory.)
13Let UsLet us consider how we may spur one another on. (Helping: action-motivate) speaking life not death.Let us not give up meeting together. (There is strength in numbers, sharing, unity, getting to know one another)
14What “Let Us” MeansLet us encourage one another (Keep fighting, hold on, all things are possible through Christ).Stick together. Do not become scattered. The enemy comes to devourer us when we are separated from the body of Christ.
15Let Us… Go through our designated trials and tribulations “Together.” Let us not simply say "I will pray for you" But rather be there with each other as we go through.
16Let Us…Have a sincere heart (God is looking for those who will worship him in Spirit and in Truth).Walk in full assurance of faith (do you believe, where is your faith, who do you have faith in) Jesus paid it all.
17Let UsLet us wash our bodies with pure water (baptized, washed clean, made a new)Be people of action by “doing.”
18Let Us…Have HOPE – it is a powerful force that effects our human nature.Hope gives us the courage and strength to move forward in spite of our current circumstances.
19Let Us Hope is based on tangible things and all of our human senses. Having FAITH – is the most powerful force in the universe.
20Let Us…Faith gives us a sense of Hope and if mastered, Faith can change our lives forever.Faith is based on what can’t be seen, or completely understood at any given point in time.Let Us not abandon our Faith before it comes to fruition.
21Let Us…Let Us have as much Hope in Faith as we have Faith in Hope, because then we can change the world we live in.
