Stand firm and encourage each other

God loves to see us encouraged. When we are encouraged it strengthens us. In the same way, when we are discouraged it weakens us and brings us down.

God encourages us to stand firm and encourage each other. In 1 Thessalonians 5:11, Paul writes; “Therefore encourage one another and build each other up, just as in fact you are doing.”

God wants us to encourage each other so that we will remain spiritually healthy and strong. The Lord knows every detail about us—how we think, how we feel, He knows our inner most being. After all, His Spirit lives within us. So God knows what we need at any given time to encourage us.

When I need encouragement, I know I can find it in God’s word. In the book of Joshua, God is encouraging Joshua for the job ahead. In chapter 1, God has just told Joshua that Moses is dead and that he would have to lead the people into the Promised Land. We once figured that after 40 ...

Adopting the attitude of Jesus

The apostle Paul teaches us so much in the Bible. And, everything he wrote was led by the Spirit of God.

Jesus told His disciples that He was going to send the Holy Spirit to teach them all things. We are all disciples of Jesus, in other words; learning from Him and He teaches us today through the Holy Spirit the same way He taught Paul, and through the same Spirit Paul teaches us.

In Philippians 2:1-5, he tells us how we can have the same attitude as Jesus. He writes, “If you have any encouragement from being united with Christ, if any comfort from His love, if any fellowship with the Spirit, if any tenderness and compassion, then make my joy complete by being like minded, having the same love, being one in spirit and purpose. Do nothing out of selfish ambition or vain conceit, but in humility consider others better than yourselves. Each of you should look not only to your own ...

The sovereign wisdom of GOD

I’ve noticed that people often equate wisdom with intelligence.

For centuries man has been seeking knowledge to prove how intelligent he is, while trying to prove there is no God. What a waste of time. If you spend your life seeking God, and when it was over there was no God, what have you lost? But, if you spent your life not believing in God and at the end find out He is real, what then?

There is wisdom in having faith in God. God gave the apostle Paul a message for the church in Corinth and for us today. He said; in 1 Corinthians 1:18-20: For the message of the cross is foolishness to those who are perishing, but to us who are being saved it is the power of God. For it is written: “I will destroy the wisdom of the wise; the intelligence of the intelligent I will frustrate.”

Paul goes on to say “Where is the wise man? Where is the scholar? Where is the philosopher of this age?” He is talking ...
