Thought for the Week 


And let us consider how to stir up one another to love and good works, not neglecting to meet together, as is the habit of some, but encouraging one another, and all the more as you see the Day drawing near (Hebrews 10:24-25, ESV). 

Jesus is coming soon, so let’s get together as often as we can. Let’s get together so we can spur one another to love and good works. 

During the Great Depression, nine ordinary young men from the University of Washington accomplished an extraordinary feat. They labored together in a brand-new rowing program to take on much stronger rowing programs like Cal Berkeley, Harvard, and Yale. And they won!  

In his book The Boys in the Boat, Daniel James Brown describes what the boys' coach saw as they worked with and for each other: “He… heard them declare their dreams and confess their shortcomings… He learned to see hope where a boy thought there was no hope… He observed the fragility of confidence and the redemptive power of trust.”  

Brown details the grueling training schedules, early mornings and late nights, the lack of money, and the desire to quit. He examines the lives and the challenges of each of the young men and their years-long striving for victory. Then he tells what the coach discovered as nine friends fought for their dream: 

He discovered that the mystical bonds of trust and affection, if nurtured correctly, might lift a crew above the ordinary sphere, transport it to a place where nine boys somehow became one thing—a thing that could not quite be defined, a thing that was so in tune with the water and the earth and the sky above that, as they rowed, effort was replaced by ecstasy. It was a rare thing, a sacred thing. 

In 1936, those nine young men took their rowing shell, the Husky Clipper, to Hitler's Germany to take on the world in the Olympics. And they brought home the gold. (Dick and Ruth Foth, Known, WaterBrook, 2017, pages 188-190) 

That’s a beautiful picture of the church! It’s ordinary believers coming together to spur each other to extraordinary things. It’s believers who share their shortcomings and dreams. It’s believers who sometimes feel like quitting, but together find a way to replace effort with ecstasy and take on the world!
