BECOME A CHURCH CHEERLEADER
Read Hebrews 10:24-25
“And let us be concerned about one another in order to
promote love and good works, 25 not staying away from
our worship meetings, as some habitually do, but encouraging
each other, and all the more as you see the day drawing near.”
Hebrews 10:24-25 (HCSB)
The job of a cheerleader is to support the team and call the fans to
action. Fans at a ball game can really make a difference as they cheer
their team on to fight for victory. In church, while each of us has a part on
the team, we also have a part like that of a fan. Sometimes we are in the
game, while at other times we are in the stands cheering for those who
are working hard for the sake of Christ’s mission.
We cheer each other on when we affirm the way God is using one of our
brothers or sisters in the work of ministry. We cheer our team when we
amen the truth brought out by our pastor. We cheer the team when we
participate joyfully in worship and greeting the guests. We spur the team
onto ministry greatness when we shout a hardy approval at the positive
actions brought forth in our church business meetings. The positive
attitude of one person can make a real difference as that individual
vocalizes his or her support of the team in the hallways and gatherings
of the congregation.
What is coming up, or happening now, in the life of your church for which
you can offer your vocal support?
Pray today that God will show you ways you can support
your church vocally with encouraging words as you move
toward congregational revitalization.
