And let us consider how we may spur one another on toward love and good deeds. Let us not give up meeting together, as some are in the habit of doing, but let us encourage one another--and all the more as you see the Day approaching.
He then says “let us not give up meeting together”, because not meeting with the church is a bad habit to get in to. It is when we are together that we are the strongest. Ecclesiastes 4:12 says this; “Though one may be overpowered, two can defend themselves. A cord of three strands is not quickly broken”. NIV There is strength in numbers. When we meet together regularly we grow stronger, we are better equipped to withstand all that the world has to throw at us.
