Strengthen and Encourage the Brethren 07/24/16

This week’s scripture is from 2 Corinthians:

Man holding arms up in praise against a sunburst“Finally, brothers and sisters, rejoice! Strive for full restoration, encourage one another, be of one mind, live in peace. And the God of love and peace will be with you.” (2 Cor. 13:11)

In these days of uncertainty and strife, we can at times feel troubled and quite alone, but if we are in Christ Jesus, if we are a child of God and we belong to Him, then we are not alone, for in Christ we have a world of brothers and sisters as well as our heavenly Father and the Holy Spirit, for we know that He will never, never leave us or forsake us. Let us therefore be comforted and remember to encourage ourselves and our brothers and sisters in Christ. Let us remember each day to love one another and to pray for each other. Let us not neglect to call upon the Lord everyday for all our brothers and sisters in Christ.

May the Lord encourage you each day to pray and keep praying.
