Biblical Encouragement

This world system wants to give you false philosophies and techniques for "motivation" and success and happiness and reaching your potential and "achieving your dreams".

But what does the Bible teach?

Biblical encouragement is telling one another, "Jesus loves you"... and all that means.

All the motivation I need, is to know that the Creator of the Universe loves me and wants to use me for His purposes.

I don't deserve God's love. I am not worthy of His love.

I don't know why Jesus loves me... He just does!

But exhort one another daily, while it is called Today; lest any of you be hardened through the deceitfulness of sin.

Hebrews 3:13

Encourage your children.

Encourage your spouse.

Encourage one another.

All of life's problems come down to not trusting Jesus Christ or not obeying Jesus Christ.
