Encouragement · Faith · Fellowship · Today

encouragement…

encouragement… the act of inspiring with courage, spirit, or hope… attempting to persuade… spurring on… giving help…

–Merriam-Webster’s Dictionary, combination of the definitions of encourage and encouragement

God… the God of encouragement… calls His people to encourage one another…

But encourage one another daily, as long as it is called “Today,” so that none of you may be hardened by sin’s deceitfulness.

Hebrews 3:13 NIV

And I wonder how all this encouragement works… to build up faith… protect from sins which lie…

I’ve seen how giving encouragement to another… encouraged me about the heart of the one encouraged…

I’ve seen relationships between Believers… the flow of encouragement… back and forth… the giving and receiving… building up both in this odd fellowship of helping… inspiring… and spurring…

It’s a flow of Living Water… powered by the Holy Spirit… for the good of His people…

Encouragement… it’s just a wonder…

Who have you encouraged to today…?

There’s still time…

And trust me… you’ll be encouraged too…

May our Lord Jesus Christ himself and God our Father, who loved us and by his grace gave us eternal encouragement and good hope, encourage your hearts and strengthen you in every good deed and word.

2Thessalonians 2:16 NIV
