Encourage one another

Encourage the weak and fainthearted that they may not fail. For the Lord will test, try, and refine His chosen ones. He will bring you through the fire and the storm of the trial to stretch, expand, and move you to the place He wants you to be. You know when you were weak, pressed, and stressed by the corrective hand of the Lord to mold you, and you know how good it was for someone to help you. You also seek to help one another as you see the need.

I encourage you in the Lord to keep doing these things more and more. For as we draw near to the end, things will increase in difficulties and hardships. We need your help, we need your prayers, we need your encouragement, admonishment, and understanding.

Rejoice when the Lord gives, and be humble and meek when He takes away. Give thanks in all occasions for this is the will of God for you. Do not forsake those things of the Lord you don’t know or understand, for in His time He will make all things clear. 

Hold fast to what is good and keep away from all evil, but dedicate your heart, body, soul, and spirit to the work the Lord has given you. The Lord Himself will instruct, cleanse, and sanctify you in His presence, all according to His perfect will, plan, and purposes. 

1 Thessalonians 5:14-23

14 And we urge you, brothers, admonish the idle, encourage the fainthearted, help the weak, be patient with them all. 15 See that no one repays anyone evil for evil, but always seek to do good to one another and to everyone. 16 Rejoice always, 17 pray without ceasing, 18 give thanks in all circumstances; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you. 19 Do not quench the Spirit. 20 Do not despise prophecies, 21 but test everything; hold fast what is good. 22 Abstain from every form of evil. 23 Now may the God of peace himself sanctify you completely, and may your whole spirit and soul and body be kept blameless at the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ.
