Encourage!

Bible Reference:  James 2:19
We are not called to be just believers; even the enemy believes.   Jesus called us to be disciples.
Ephesians - build each other up.  All to often we pull each other down.  It's important we build each other up!
1 Thessalonians 3:3-13
The love for the Lord and for his people is evident in people's lives.
Ephesians 1:15-16
Genuineness of faith and love for all people who are the Lord's.  Everyone should be encouraged.   We expect our children to make mistakes.   Failure is not fatal; it's the courage to carry on.
We should encourage spiritual children in their faith and walk with the  Lord.  We need to be encourages not people who condemn people.  Paul knew he had to correct some things but he encouraged the people first.
Life lesson:  encourage people even when you have to correct.
Life lesson:  Paul told the people he loved them.  We should do this also.
The love for fellow Christians comes from the Lord.
There is a great need in our Church today to encourage one another.
Acts 4: 36 - Barnabas
Acts 11: 22-24 Barnabas encouraged - people of encouragement.
Encourage one another; lift each other; build each other up.
Paul encouraged and im return he was encouraged.
