- 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. (II Corinthians 13:11)
- Therefore encourage one another with these words. (I Thessalonians 4:18)
- Therefore encourage one another and build each other up, just as in fact you are doing. (I Thessalonians 5:11)
- But encourage one another daily, as long as it is called “Today,” so that none of you may be hardened by sin's deceitfulness. (Hebrews 3:13)
Let the peace of Christ rule in your hearts, since as members of one body you were called to peace. And be thankful. Let the message of Christ dwell among you richly as you teach and admonish one another with all wisdom through psalms, hymns, and songs from the Spirit, singing to God with gratitude in your hearts.
The world will indeed be watching how professing Christians conduct themselves during this troublesome season. Speak with grace. Encourage in other ways also when you have opportunity. Receive encouragement with humility. Profess enduring hope. Love without prejudice.
Our God is for us, not against us...
Love to all,
