Encouraging One Another, Part 1

August 19, 2017

Some people are naturally outgoing and social. Others are more quiet and introverted. There are all kinds of personality types in the world, but the question is, what kind of people does God intend us to be?

Yes, God is our great Encourager, but He calls upon us to be encouragers as well. In this message, “Encouraging One Another,” Dr. Stanley identifies numerous biblical commands given to help us become more fervent motivators of other people. He goes on to show us how encouragement is a major theme in Scripture, pointing to the examples of godly encouragers in the New Testament. He then concludes his message by listing many practical ways we can encourage others.
