Daily Devotional – Encourage One Another

Our scripture for the Daily Devotional today is taken from 1 Thessalonians 5:4-11. It was just today. I received a compliment and encouragement from a friend. I took a step back and considered how this encouragement made me feel!

“But you, brothers and sisters, are not in darkness so that this day should surprise you like a thief. You are all children of the light and children of the day. We do not belong to the night or to the darkness. So then, let us not be like others, who are asleep, but let us be awake and sober. For those who sleep, sleep at night, and those who get drunk, get drunk at night. But since we belong to the day, let us be sober, putting on faith and love as a breastplate, and the hope of salvation as a helmet. 

For God did not appoint us to suffer wrath but to receive salvation through our Lord Jesus Christ. 10 He died for us so that, whether we are awake or asleep, we may live together with him. 11 Therefore encourage one another and build each other up, just as in fact you are doing.”

Encourage those that you love around you.

The encouragement made me feel great! The words reinforced the love that my friend has for me. They reminded me that I was seen and that they respected, and valued me. I felt elevated and encouraged by the simple words.
 
My friend shared hope with me. The encouragement gave me a greater sense of hope in Jesus and the plans that God has for me. I was filled with confidence because of the encouragement, determined to push on to God’s plans.
 
Many times I have shares that we all desire to be loved, cherished, and thought of. Encouraging each other helps each one of us to experience and feel important and needed. Let us be people that encourage and spread hope to all of those around us this week. After all, love is a verb, and encouraging others is a great activity to undertake!

Let’s Pray

Dear Jesus, 

You have given me the greatest hope in all the world. I have hope in You as my savior to draw me close to You for communion for all eternity. Everything I do is because of this hope. Help me today by Your Holy Spirit to gives this hope to others I meet today!

In Jesus Name,

Amen
