Using the Word to Encourage Others



At the Feet of Jesus

The man that had been possessed by demons was freed of them by Jesus. People that walked by could see that a miracle had been performed. They also knew to give credit to our Lord because of where the man was found: at Jesus’ feet. 

If we want people to be able to look at us and see Jesus’ hand upon our lives we need to be found at the feet of Jesus too. Talk with him, learn of him, stay in his presence. 

Scripture taken from:

Luke 8:26-36

Complete turnaround


 “Let him that stole steal no more: but rather let him labour, working with his hands the thing which is good, that he may have to give to him that needeth.” Ephesians 4:28

*Christ can change an egotistical person to one that is so compassionate that they share their self, their blessings with others.*

Jesus is fully capable of turning lives around…keep praying. 

Game Changer


Peter adamantly denied Christ. Even though he had told Jesus that he would die for him rather than to deny him. But when he was alone in the world, facing others, he turned his back against his Lord.

Not very long after Peter’s infamous denial we read of his first message given to the church through the Holy Spirit. In this case Peter boldly declared Christ before the men and women. He preached Jesus and him crucified and risen again. The boldness Peter possessed was a stark contrast to his cowardliness only months before.

The difference in Peter? The Spirit.

Peter found strength to stand for Jesus because the Spirit was comforting him, making him bold, giving him strength. He was no longer alone; Christ lived within him.

The indwelling of the Holy Spirit can have that type of an effect on us too. Allow God to work through you.

Over and Over

Philippians 3:1

Do you feel like sometimes you are just listening to a broken record when it comes to the Word of God?

Over and over we are told to abstain from sin. We read about the just judgment of God from the Old Testament to the New. The bible is full of examples of God’s love. Again and again we are told how to live, given examples of those that went on before.The Word is repetitive. Nothing has changed in it nor will it ever.

But it’s design is beneficial to us! As humans we need to be reminded….we need to be told repeatedly how to live. The bible and it’s repetitiveness is for our profit. It’s for our well being.

So don’t become weary of the same message, embrace it. Apply it to your life and return to it for strength. It will never fail you.
