Active or Passive?

Today is Sunday, and I'm assuming that you will meet with your church family today. When you do, will you be active or passive? Do you get together with the mindset of edifying others and being edified? Do you plan to be involved or are you more of a spectator? Do you think in advance of things you can bring (such as a scripture, a word of prophecy, a psalm, a hymn, etc.) or do you depend on others for this?

My strong encouragement to you is to be active. When you are actively involved, you benefit and you benefit others. When you are passive, I'm not really sure who benefits.

Let us remember these familiar verses:

"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

Stirring up others and encouraging others are surely active. Let's be so.
