"You must warn each other every day, as long as it is called 'today,' so that none of you will be deceived by sin and hardened against God." (Hebrews 3:13, NLT)
Sin is deceptive. The scriptures speak of it as a trap, a lure, and an
enticement. That's why we need to "warn" each other. Otherwise, we may
fall prey to the addictive nature of the desires of our flesh.
The word, "warn", in the text is the Greek word paracaleo.
the King James Version translates it "exhort". The New American
Standard Version translates it as "encourage". The literal translation
of paracaleo is, "to call to one's side". Included in the meaning is
the purpose of admonishing, begging, consoling, strengthening,
comforting, and teaching. The way we warn each other every day is by
coming alongside each other and speaking truth and love.
Let's think about it this way:
Today I will . . .
Walk with you. I will come alongside.
Affirm you. I will remind you of how God sees you.
Rescue you. Your problems are my problems.
Nag you. I will speak the truth in love over and over again.
