Encourage: As Long as it is Called “Today”
Return to the Reflection Scripture.
So then, as we have opportunity, let us do good to everyone, and especially to those who are of the household of faith.
Galatians 6:10 ESV
The definition of “opportunity” includes “a good chance for advancement or progress.”
How is it we advance or progress when we take advantage of every opportunity to do good and encourage others? especially our brothers and sister in Christ?
Read Jeremiah 2:12-13
What two evils have God’s people committed?
How does He call the heavens to respond?
How does God describe Himself?
How does He describe what His people have done?
What do these evils look like in the world today? How do they play out?
Are you drinking from self-made broken cisterns? What are they?
Take time to respond to the sins of Believers as He calls the heavens to: be appalled, be shocked, be utterly desolate. Mourn. Confess. Repent. Seek His mercy and forgiveness.
Then ask how He wants you to use the Living Water in you to encourage His people to return to Him, the fountain of Living Water.
