Be an encourager


My sermon notes: Encouraging one another
 ~ Dr. Charles Stanley 

You can find this sermon at InTouch Ministries.

We should all be encouragers. Even Jesus needed encouragement. Everyone needs encouragement. 

Matthew 26:38 He told them, “My soul is crushed with grief to the point of death. Stay here and keep watch with me.” 

Dr. Stanley suggests we don't keep our faith to ourselves or keep to ourselves. We need each other. 

Below are simple things you can do to encourage your friends, family, coworkers, those who help you and those you know need a little extra TLC. 


➡️Call
➡️Text better than nothing
➡️Write a letter
➡️Compliment 
➡️Ask: What can I pray about for you?
➡️Fulfill a need
➡️Give someone your time
➡️Provide Scripture. Psalm 32:8
➡️Tell the truth
➡️Be forgiving 
➡️Say it -> I love you! 
➡️Be a good example 
➡️Give godly correction
➡️Listen
➡️Look people square in the eyes
➡️Be patient 
➡️Weep with those you love
➡️Agree with them.
➡️Give a meaningful gift.
➡️Give an affirming look 
➡️Pass on helpful information
➡️Express your loyalty
➡️Love the family and friends of those you love
➡️Be helpful to those around you
➡️Smile 

You can be an encourager when Jesus Christ is in your heart.

In my mind I want to be God’s willing servant, but instead I find myself still enslaved to sin. So you see how it is: my new life tells me to do right, but the old nature that is still inside me loves to sin. Oh, what a terrible predicament I’m in!
