Good morning.


Both the gift encouragement and the gift of teaching are gifts given to the body of Christ to edify others.


As Terran Williams says, "Encouragers tend to have great communication skills ... using words to inspire action."


The writer to the Hebrew says, "Let us hold unswervingly to the hope we profess, for he who promised is faithful. And let us consider how we may spur one another on toward love and good deeds,"

(Hebrews 10:23‭-‬24)


We have a hope in Christ which enables us to to remain positive in every situation. Consequently we are in a position to reach out and lift each other up and through our words help others to move forward as well as grow.


Often it is in our Life Groups that we teach and encourage each other. It is here, in a safe environment, where we get the opportunity to use our Spiritual gifts without the fear of being put down.


Peter tells us to always "be prepared to give an answer to everyone who asks you to give the reason for the hope that you have. But do this with gentleness and respect." (1 Peter 3:15) This is what takes place in our Life Groups as we follow the prompting of Holy Spirit and exercise the edifying grace gifts.


It is in Life Group where we can grow in our gifting. We encourage you to slot into a group.


Blessings.

Mike and Daphne.

Good morning. David writing in Psalm 43:5 asks, "Why, my soul, are you downcast? Why so disturbed within me?" He then gives us good advice, "Put your hope in God, for I will yet praise him, my Savior
