How to Be an Encourager | Sunday Message

Released January 23, 2022 by Greg Laurie Podcast

 

Everybody needs someone to encourage them in their walk of faith. In this Sunday morning episode, Pastor Greg Laurie notes the world-changing impact of one man who was known as the “son of encouragement.” Glean good news in this latest message from the book of Acts.

Notes

“The right word at the right time is like precious gold set in silver.” —Proverbs 25:11

75% of what we worry about never happens, but God will be with us when the other 15% happens.

“I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.” —Philippians 4:13

There is a place for criticism and correction.

1. An encourager sees the potential in others and cheers them on.

Barnabas took Saul under his wing and true to his name, encouraged him!

Do you know a Barnabas?

Are you a Barnabas?

Paul could not get the church to embrace him.

New believers need Christians who will model for them what it is to follow Jesus.

If we had more Barnabases, we would have more Pauls.

Our calling is to lead others to Christ and then disciple them.

The more I give, the more He gives to me.

Have you ever led anyone to Jesus Christ?

Have you discipled anyone?

Everybody needs a Barnabas in their life at one time or another.

When people are suffering, they don’t always need a prayer; they need an encourager.

We are able to encourage others as we ourselves have suffered.

2. If you want to be an encourager, help other Christians to grow in their faith.

“He encouraged the believers to stay true to the Lord.”

He will forgive you of all of your sin!
