The Need for Mutual Exhortations

“For as by nature we are inclined to evil, we have need of various helps to retain us in the fear of God.  Unless our faith be now and then raised up, it will lie prostrate: unless it be warmed, it will be frozen; unless it be roused, it will grow torpid. He would have us then to stimulate one another by mutual exhortations, so that Satan may not creep into our hearts, and by his fallacies draw us away from God.
-John Calvin, from his commentary on Hebrews, p.88
