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.

There are many people with impressive education, talent, skills, families, and opportunities who fail to fulfill God’s will for their lives. Why? They lacked confidence and their self-doubt proved detrimental to them. In Confidence that Conquers, Dr. Stanley teaches us that a person’s confidence level is one of the most reliable predictors of whether or not that individual will succeed in life, because they know their identity in Christ.

Even though Jesus is God, he did not come to earth expecting to be waited on like a king. Instead, He said, “I have not come to be served but to serve and to give my life a ransom for many” (Matthew 20:29). However, those who do choose to serve Him will be honored by the Father (John 12:26). In this message, Dr. Stanley talks about what motivates a person to serve God, including: - A gratitude for salvation - A conviction of being called and commanded to serve - A vision for God’s great purpose - A desire to invest his life in things that have eternal value Dr. Stanley then concludes his message with four requirements for someone to have a passion to serve God. Learn to follow Jesus’ example of perfect service to the Father and experience the blessings of glorifying the King of Kings.
