11/24/12 Daily Devotion

Romans 1:11-12 I long to see you so that I may impart to you some spiritual gift to make you strong— [12] that is, that you and I may be mutually encouraged by each other’s faith.

Paul was a master encourager. He understood the importance of lifting others up and acknowledging their efforts. In encouraging others, he touched their lives in a powerful manner, so powerfully, in fact, that their lives were transformed by his efforts. The effects of encouraging or not encouraging another person are clearly seen. As we converse with another, our words have power, and that power, whether it be positive or null and void, is observable within the reaction and future actions of that person. As Christians, we should long to become vessels of encouragement within the church and within the world.

Prayer Starter:

Lord, I long to share positivity with others. Help me see what I can do or say that will make a difference within someone’s life.
