Encouragement

encourage-themselves-848x445

Is it possible for me to encourage you today?

Therefore encourage one another and build one another up, just as you are doing. 1 Thessalonians 5:11

I’d really like to do that if possible.  I’m not sure how, perhaps you can message me, or call me if we are friends.

I don’t want to be an encourager in a Joel Osteen sort of a way where I tell you that God has great blessings in store for you.  Because I don’t know that’s necessarily true in the “mammon” sense of a blessing.

But what I do know is that if you are a believer in Jesus Christ you have every spiritual blessing in the heavenly places and that is better than anything I could ever offer you that is temporary.

But in this life, we need people to help us sometimes.  To guide us on the path.  To be a listening ear or on occasion a kick in the butt.  Without trying to be too sappy, which I’m not really a “sappy” guy, I do wish to offer opportunities to pray for you if I can.

If you ever needed to talk I’m always willing to listen.

Hey, I like coffee…  let me know if we can grab a cup and hang out.

In this dog-eat-dog world let’s find some space for kindness and compassion.  That is a Christian virtue after all.  It doesn’t always have to be setting you straight on your bad theology.

Anyway, I’ll stop there, hopefully, you got my point.

  1. Be encouraged dear brother because you are an encouragement to me today. Far to often, I have run into hardened and cruel Christians (myself included) who tear down first then give a little bit of love if it’s convenient. We should always remember, if Christ loves us in spite of ourselves, shouldn’t we love others the same? This doesn’t mean we turn a blind eye to sin, but truly, we are all in the same boat as forgiven sinners. Love ya bro! 😀

    1. Paul, wow, you are so right brother. Just what I was thinking as I started to write. I see, mostly on Facebook, the hardcore theology guys, of which I’m one, always battling. Great.

      But man, let’s have some balance.

      Glad to have encouraged today. I’m praying for you and your family.

      Love you brother. Praise the Lord.

      1. Yeah, I used to frequent Sermon Audio and comment from time to time and it ALWAYS ended up in a fight. It seems you can’t say anything remotely dogmatic theses days without getting someone angry. Love and be compassionate and understand that we are all flawed, selfish and children under it all. Have a blessed day dear brothers. Sending prayers your way as well.
