Be ENCOURAGED!

For I long to see you, that I may IMPART to you some spiritual gift, so that you may be ESTABLISHED that is, that I may be ENCOURAGED together with you by the mutual faith both of you and me. Romans 1:11-12 (NKJV)

You can see Paul’s PASSION for the benefit of his fellow believers, his work, his family!  He LONGS to see them.  He desires to IMPART spiritual gifts to them.  He wants them to be STABLE & ESTABLISHED.  And he wants to ENCOURAGE them together in FAITH!

The Amplified version says:

That is, that we may be mutually strengthened and encouraged and comforted by each other's faith, both yours and mine.   

Notice that encouragement happens in the context of COMMUNITY!  This is why we must not quit meeting together and even more so as the COMING of the Lord approaches!

Rick Renner writes in Sparkling Gems from the Greek:

The devil works overtime to try to tempt you to skip church, stay home, and do something else instead. But, friend, why ISOLATE yourself when you are in the greatest NEED of encouragement?

For you can all prophesy one by one, that all may LEARN and all may be ENCOURAGED. 1 Corinthians 14:31 (NKJV)

We ALL can be ENCOURAGED & BLESSED!

    Always, Always, Always BE HOPEFUL!

    Always, Always, Always BE HOPEFUL!

    Faith gives SUBSTANCE to the things we hope for (Hebrews 11:1).  That is BASED on the Word of God.

    Proverbs 13:12 tell us that: Hope that is deferred, that is prolonged or delayed, makes the HEART sick.  But when the dream is fulfilled it becomes a TREE of LIFE!

    Finally:

    Hebrews 10:23 (NKJV) Let us hold fast the CONFESSION of our hope without wavering (seize and hold fast and retain without wavering the hope we cherish and confess and our acknowledgement of it -AMP; hold tightly to the hope -CEV; We must continue to hold firmly to our declaration of faith -GW; hold tightly without wavering to the hope we affirm -NLT), for He who promised is faithful.

    (MSG) Let's keep a firm grip on the promises that keep us going. He always keeps his word.

    Keep CONFESSING the WORD, hold tightly the CONFESSION of your HOPE!

    Be blessed!
