Jesus Wants Us To Encourage One Another

Jesus Wants Us To Encourage One Another.

Today’s message really is about encouragement, in so many areas of your life encouragement really can be life changing to others and yourself. You know when we go through life it’s not necessarily easy. There are times where you know maybe we feel like it’s tough to go through different situations. Maybe you started a new job or school or maybe you’re just trying have a good home life or something in those regards. Sometimes if we learn to encourage yourself as God encourages us and then we can start to reach out to others and encourage them as well.

Maybe they need help with their finances, maybe they need a little bit of advice that you’re able to give them, maybe it’s something that you’ve already experienced and you can encourage someone to get to the other side of that. or maybe it’s encouragement to start school or a new career.

I remember when I was contemplating a career change in the IT field several years ago. I had both my brother Brian and a good friend of mine were both very encouraging which helped me tremendously to be able to make the change.

Now that I look back on it, I don’t know if I could of ever had the confidence to make that huge change in my life without their help and and encouraging words.

Is it easy to reach out with encouraging words and help others? No. But when we really start to look around us and know that so many are in need of maybe just one word that gives them hope and lifts them up to be able to at a minimum get through the day or even better make a massive change, that is just awesome to know you can be a piece of that persons life in a positive way?

Romans 12:8
he who exhorts, in exhortation; he who gives, with liberality; he who leads, with diligence; he who shows mercy, with cheerfulness.

I think this verse really sums it up as we really should look for ways of being cheerful and lifting others in all we do. When we start to live our lives this way and have a heart of wanting to reach out and help others we can feel our lives start to change as well as we become the beacon of hope and strength in those around us lives.

Is it always easy to try and be encouraging. No it is not. We all have

those moments where we feel low on energy and cant go on. But that’s when we need to look to Jesus and pray and with the Lords help we can have the energy to start reaching out.

Somebody starting something and you’ve already gone down that path; it’s very important to encourage others and try and reach out and help them and be God’s hand extended through encouragement that’s real message today is just being encouragement to others and ourselves just like Jesus is for us.

Have a Blessed Day,

Be a Light Bringer Like Jesus

Be a Light Bringer Like Jesus.

What is a Light Bringer you ask? Its someone when they show up the room just naturally lights up and everything, every situation and everyone gets brighter. Its a positive force that flows from the Holy Spirit thru you to others that is awe inspiring. It is Gods awesome power at work.

I know there times where I felt like a situation where many were struggling, and I was able to bring that fresh perspective and bring that shinning light that was needed to solve a problem either in my profession or situations at home.

Its really awesome to see Gods hand at work as we stay connected to him to be his hands and feet extended to all situations around us. When we stay in constant communication with the Lord throughout your day, he starts turning up that light brighter and brighter!

You ask Bradley, now come on how can you be so positive and always shine the light of Hope and Peace just like Jesus did? You say there are many situations that are far too difficult to be effective. I say give it a try, pray about all situations and see what God can do. Many times this starts long before you are in them. Start your day in prayer and get the light turned on early in the day.

I know for my self (coffee helps too) I start my day in prayer and get the lights on early so I can pick the torch up and be a light bringer for God. Does this mean there will never be difficultly? No. But it means that with God on your side all things are possible.

Mathew 5: 14
“You are the light of the world. A city that is set on a hill cannot be hidden.

Have you ever been in a situation that the light gets dull and it looks like people just are having a low day or they need a lift. Well when Jesus would show all would change. When you walk with the Holy spirit you can have the same effect. Be Spirit filled and show up at your job or at school or whatever you may do, and bring the light in that area and give others hope and positivity to that situation.

This message today really is be a light bringer in all areas of your life that you possibly can. You know like Peter was in Acts, basically when he showed up at the gatherings wherever he might of been, he really brought the light with him and the other disciples as well. But especially Peter, people saw it on him, through him, and in every which way and It just really was a great reflection of the Lord in all the good the Lord Jesus brings. People wanted more of that!

I think this day in age we can still bring that.  Be the light bringer to any situation we’re in and lift people up and lift those around you up

to an elevated level and you’ll see your life start to change and those around you. It’s amazing to see.

Stay on course once you’re committed to God and stay faithful your life will start to open up whole new avenues that you never thought possible.

Have a Blessed day,
