Prov. 1:11 If they say, Come with us, let us lay wait for blood, let us lurk privily for the innocent without cause:

Come with me. If sinners have their “Come,” should not saints much more?

“Come, let us go up to the house of the Lord.” {#Isa 2:3}

“Come, let us walk in the light of the Lord.” {#Isa 2:5}

“Let us go speedily to pray before the Lord, and to seek the Lord of hosts; I will go also.” {#Zec 8:21}

 

Should we not incite, entice, whet, and “provoke one another,” {1} “sharpen” and extimulate, {2} rouse and “stir up” {b} each other to love and good works? {3}

 

  1. And let us consider one another to provoke unto love and to good works (Heb. 10:24).
  2. Iron sharpeneth iron; so a man sharpeneth the countenance of his friend. (Prov. 27:17)
  3. Yea, I think it meet, as long as I am in this tabernacle, to stir you up by putting you in remembrance. (2Pet. 1:13)
