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.

When it hurts to care – Psalm 31:7

When it hurts to care – Psalm 31:7
Psalm 31:7 I will be glad and rejoice in your unfailing love, for you have seen my troubles, and you care about the anguish of my soul. One of God’s gifts to me is the ability to care about and pray for those who are ill. But right now, my mother is at the end of her life, and another key person in my life recently received bad health news. I also follow the Facebook journey of a courageous 12-year old girl, Jessie Rees, who suffered from two inoperable brain tumors. She passed away a few days ago. I am sad.
