Let us CONSIDER HOW WE MAY SPUR:                                          
The word “spur” means to stimulate strongly or arouse.  In “The Most Excellent Way” our goal is to spur or stimulate each other:
  • To love others without prejudice. 
  • To accept each other as brothers and sisters in Christ — it’s  the Holy Spirit working in us to demonstrate God’s plan of acceptance through Christ.
  • To testify of God’s forgiveness in our lives, and how He has spurred us onto toward love and good deeds.
  • To provide living proof by example of how God has changed us, and continues to change us, day by day.
  • Our good deeds toward others spurs them on to the seek God’s way for changing their lives.  Work done for the good of others will attract and win them to Christ.  God gets the glory!
We keep “The Most Excellent Way” meetings going because we know to withdraw from the strength of fellowship is to invite disaster — like a soldier in battle who lags behind the rest of his platoon and becomes an easy target for the enemy.
  • People who are trapped in addictions need to be welcomed into the Church, where they will find the love, acceptance and forgiveness of God leading to new life in Christ. Even though an independent attitude has existed since the Garden, we know God did not design us to survive on our own. He created us to be completely dependent on Him, and to need and care for one another.

These words reveal that Christians are responsible for each other.  We are not only interested in our own spiritual well-being — we also encourage others to remain fervent in their love and active in their service to God.  We encourage:
  • Daily study of and meditation on                                                                   the Word of God, His commands                                                                 and promises;
  • Memorization of Scripture;
  • Searching the Scriptures for God’s                                                                  way for solving our problems;  
  • Worshipping and praising God                                                                  with words and actions of obedience;
  • Praying without ceasing to maintain our continual spiritual connection to our Creator and Savior;   
  • Regular Church attendance and service within the Body of Christ; Good stewardship and generous sharing of the tangible and spiritual gifts  God has provided each of us.

Encouragement happens all the more as we see the Day approaching. The Day (Christ’s return) is guaranteed ― Jesus will return.  He will not forget. 
Remind them to be subject to rulers and authorities, 
to obey, to be ready for every good work, to speak evil of no one, to be peaceable, gentle, showing all humility  to all men. 
For we ourselves were 
also once foolish, disobedient, deceived, serving various lusts 
and pleasures, 
living in malice and envy, hateful and hating 
one another. 
But when the kindness and the love of God our Savior toward man appeared, 
not by works of righteousness which we have done, but according to His mercy 
He saved us,
 through the washing of regeneration and renewing of the Holy Spirit, whom He poured out on us abundantly through Jesus Christ our Savior, that having been justified by His grace we should become heirs according to 
the hope of eternal life. 
This is a faithful saying, and these things I want you to affirm constantly, that those who have believed in God should
be careful to maintain  good works. 
These things are good 
and profitable to men. 
Titus 3:1-8 NKJV
