for i have derived much joy and comfort from your love, my brother, because the hearts of the saints have been refreshed through you. Philemon 1:7 ESV, on yellow background with flower border on the bottom of the image

Encouraging Each Other

The Apostle Paul really seemed to value and understand the benefit of spending time with other believers and being encouraged. He mentions it several times in his letters in the New Testament.

“So that by God’s will I may come to you with joy and be refreshed in your company.” Romans 15:32 ESV 

“Therefore we are comforted. And besides our own comfort, we rejoiced still more at the joy of Titus, because his spirit has been refreshed by you all.” 2 Corinthians 7:13 ESV

“For I have derived much joy and comfort from your love, my brother, because the hearts of the saints have been refreshed through you.” Philemon 1:7 ESV

Some people are able to start gathering again at churches after over a year of doing church another way. Maybe you aren’t able to attend one yet. Reach out to another Christian, whether in person or through a text, call, or email, to refresh a brother or sister in Christ. We can help strengthen, comfort, and revive our fellow Christian. It is a great privilege to serve God in this way!

I am participating in the #hopewriterlife challenge. Today’s prompt was “Refresh.”
