Today in the 40 Day Devotional series, we read…

Day 30 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?

Prayer

Pray today that God will show you ways you can support your church vocally with encouraging words as you move toward congregational revitalization.
