Therefore, Encourage One Another
Today’s scripture reading: First Thessalonians 4-5
Key verse: First Thessalonians 5:11
Everyone needs encouragement.
We need to be encouraged that we are appreciated; loved; worthwhile; and many other things.
The apostle Paul certainly knew how to encourage others. But one thing that strikes me about his greatest and best encouragement is that it is always based in the good news of God’s love as shown by Christ’s life, death, and resurrection. It is always grounded in the gospel.
We can encourage each other in many ways. But surely the best way is to remind each other of how to find eternal life in God’s kingdom.
Prayer: Lord, help me to keep it simple. Show me how to encourage others with the promise of Your love.
