some incredible people

So encourage each other and build each other up, just as you are already doing.

The last two days I have sat around the table with some incredible people.  They are from several different parts of our nation, but each one has a heart to serve God and to lead others to know God.  Sitting here listening to their stories does something huge for me.  They bring courage and strength so that I will keep on and other will keep on doing what God has called us to do.

Who are the incredible people in your life?  These are people who speak truth into your life.  They will encourage you when things are good, and they will often bring your courage to face some of the toughest of situations.

Jesus was such a person.  He spoke truth into many lives.  He lifted them from the gutter and placed them where there is hope.  Because of some incredible people in your life and mine we are better than we would have ever been on my own.  Life is just so much more fun and fulfilling because of these people God has connected to my life.  

Take a few minutes to thank the people who have encouraged and lifted you.  Now plan to be an encourager for someone else.  Not only do we need some incredible people in our lives, but we need to be incredible people for others.  Remember, we are blessed so we can be a blessing to someone else!

Worry weighs a person down; an encouraging word cheers a person up.

Jonathan went to find David and encouraged him to stay strong in his faith in God.

I have written and sent this short letter to you with the help of Silas, whom I commend to you as a faithful brother. My purpose in writing is to encourage you and assure you that what you are experiencing is truly part of God's grace for you. Stand firm in this grace.
