I need encouragement. You need encouragement. We need it every day. Encouragement is oxygen for our fire.
In chapter 3 of Hebrews, we are instructed to encourage one another daily. We read in verse 15, Today, if you hear His voice… It doesn’t say, if He speaks to you today… I believe that God speaks to us every day.We need to be listening – that depends on us! And if we are going to act on what we hear from Him each day, we need to be encouraged each day.
This passage identifies unbelief as evil (verse 12). We have the ability to help others to stay out of unbelief by helping them to believe. It is amazing what a few words can accomplish to kindle someone’s fire.
Are we waiting for one special day a week to encourage someone else’s faith? We need to do it daily. We have so many means to do it: a phone call, text, email, social networks, even a personal visit, a cup of coffee… Let’s ask ourselves:
Who can I encourage today? How am I going to do it?
