24and let us consider one another to provoke unto love and good works; 25not forsaking our own assembling together, as the custom of some is, but exhorting one another; and so much the more, as ye see the day drawing nigh.

John Noble shares about the priceless fellowship believers held in prison to encourage each other in the faith, and the great collective risk they took whenever they got together for the “illegal” fellowship.
While in prison, Zhang Rongliang, Li and other Christian brothers met secretly in the crude bathrooms in camp to encourage each other. Though the bathrooms were filthy, the fellowship they enjoyed in Christ, was a sweet aroma to their souls.
Starting with his immediate family, Brother Zhang led believers to trust God and ignore the risk as they obeyed Hebrews 10:25 to not give up the habit of meeting together as Christians, even in the midst of fierce persecution.
