Encourage Others

  • But continually encourage one another every day, as long as it is called
    “Today” [and there is an opportunity], so that none of you will be
    hardened [into settled rebellion] by the deceitfulness of sin [its
    cleverness, delusive glamour, and sophistication]. Hebrews 3:13 AMP
  • Let each one of us make it a practice to please (make happy) his neighbor for his good and for his true welfare, to edify him [to strengthen him and build him up spiritually]. Romans 15:2 AMPC
  • Therefore encourage (admonish, exhort) one another and edify (strengthen and build up) one another, just as you are doing. 1 Thessalonians 5:11 AMPC

Means of Encouragement

  • Prophesy: the one who prophesies speaks to people for edification, exhortation, and consolation. 1 Corinthians 14:3 NASB


  • Now Joseph, a Levite and native of Cyprus who was surnamed Barnabas by the apostles, which interpreted means Son of Encouragement, Sold a field which belonged to him and brought the sum of money and laid it at the feet of the apostles. Acts 4:36-37 AMPC
  • When Saul arrived in Jerusalem, he tried to join the disciples, but they were all afraid of him, not believing that he was a disciple. Then Barnabas brought him to the apostles and described how Saul had seen the Lord, who spoke to him on the road to Damascus, and how Saul had spoken boldly in that city in the name of Jesus. Acts 9:26-27 BSB
