For I long to see you, that I may impart to you some spiritual gift to strengthen you— that is, that we may be mutually encouraged by each other’s faith, both yours and mine.
Romans 1:11-12 ESV
We were not created to live in this world alone, and as many of us already know we need the encouragement of other Christians as we travel this journey called life. We should have a desire to spend time with people, to develop relationships with people, and to then be mutually encouraged by each other’s faith.
We need to take steps to genuinely get to know one another and discover the faith and spiritual gifts that others have. In the above stated scripture, we can learn from Paul and seek out other individuals, or maybe a group of people to meet with to be encouraged by their faith.
As we gain encouragement from others, we must be mindful to also give encouragement.
We weren’t called to live the Christian life alone.
Do you know of anyone that may need encouragement today?
