A sermon preach'd in Mr. Delamot's yard. Exhortation is among the relational skills effective leaders cultivate. Exhorters are people who spur others on to higher levels of achievement. In doing so, they help turn their constituents into leaders.

But think of the word just used: spur. Spurring, while it may sometimes be necessary, is not always a pleasant activity. Numbers - And they journeyed from mount Hor by the way of the Red sea, to compass the land of Edom: and the soul of the people was much discouraged because of the way.

Ask God to use you to help fan that flame. Don’t get discouraged if people don’t return your encouragement (Matt. ; Eph. ) or if you don’t see fruit from it (Gal. Creating a church culture that glorifies God takes a long time, lots of prayer.

They were not only discouraged because Jesus was dead, but also because it was the third day and they had hoped that Jesus would have been raised from the dead, as their Lord promised.

They must have given up hope on Jesus’ resurrection and decided to head home, back to their old way of life. Take heart when you are discouraged and remember our God will defend you. You are important to God’s plan no matter your relationship status. I love seeing how you listen to God.

I am so proud of the woman you’ve become. Your grace and meekness are inspiring. Encouraging Quotes for Women. God is the God of mercy: Psalm"You are forgiving and good, O Lord, abounding in love to all who call to you." The word in Greek for "comfort" is paraklesis.

It means, exhortation, comfort, and encouragement. In fact, a form of this word, parakletos is used for the Holy Spirit. A Christian’s motivational spiritual gift represents what God does in him to shape his perspective on life and motivate his words and actions.

Romans –8 describes “basic motivations,” which are characterized by inherent qualities or abilities within a believer—the.

() Deuteronomy 5 Moses reminded Israel of God’s covenant with them at Mount Horeb (Sinai), beginning with a review of the great fundamental principles known as the Ten Commandments (see v.

6–21).Moses’ special admonition is given in ver 32, and The law of Moses represents a gospel orientation (see Reading ), and these verses demonstrate such an orientation. Let not your hearts be troubled. Believe in God; believe also in me.

(John ) Discouragement is a temptation “common to man” (1 Corinthians ). And in dealing with it sometimes we need tenderness and other times we need toughness. But either way discouragement is not to be tolerated or wallowed in.

It’s to be fought. An Exhortation to the People of God Not to Be Discouraged in Their Way, by the Scoffs and Contempt of Wicked Men Sermon by George Whitefield.

Putting it all together, God exhorts parents in this way: Parents, do not provoke your children to anger lest they become discouraged. On the heels of that exhortation he offers a solution: “But bring them up in the discipline and instruction of the Lord.” Do not beat down, but raise up.

There are two ways to listen to this message this morning. One is to take it as a straightforward exhortation from the Word of God to fathers on how to rear their children. The other is to take it as a parable pointing to the way the Father in heaven loves those who believe and follow his Son.

Frankly, I hope all of you hear it in both senses. John is addressing those in 1 John who thought love made God too personal. Many today follow along with John’s original audience believing “God is love” but do not believe what the Bible teaches about the rest of God’s character.

Such people often recoil at the idea that the way to heaven is narrow (Matthew ) and restricted by Christ only through Him (John ; Acts ). Exhortation Definition.

In modern usage, exhort can mean “to incite by argument or advice: urge strongly.” One might use exhort interchangeably with summon, beseech, entreat, or encourage. Words like these are used frequently in scripture, but the Greek takes us deeper into the heart of the New Testament.

Our family vacation could not have arrived at a better time. I was feeling worn out, discouraged, and depleted from the daily in and day out, each hour period seemed packed to the brim with activities, work, and other commitments.

We all feel discouraged from time to time. Some days, we might run full speed ahead and tackle life with no problem, but other times, we might feel like throwing in the contains ups and downs for a reason, so that we may appreciate the good times and learn from the hard ones.

Verse - But exhort one another (literally, yourselves, as in Colossiansthe idea being that of the responsibility of the believers themselves in keeping their own faith alive; the Church must keep itself from apostasy by the mutual admonitions of its members), day by day, so long as it is called Today (i.e.

while the "Today," τὸ σήμερον, of the psalm is still called so. When we let what people say or think and the expectations people have of us to influence us, then discouragement sets in.

When we look to men (horizontal) rather than to God (vertical), we easily. James is an intensely practical book, filled with exhortations to Christians about the way they should live their lives now that they have been given new life in Jesus.

It is filled with allusions to and quotations of the teachings of Jesus, and it includes more imperatives per word than any other New Testament book. Those who have believers as their masters must not be disrespectful to them because they are brethren, but must serve them all the more, because those who partake of the benefit are believers and beloved.

Way They Should Teach Preaching, “Brethren, if you have any word of exhortation for the people. One Bible scholar believed this use was forbidden “lest the people might depend on a well-appointed cavalry as a means of security, and so cease from trusting in the strength and protection of God.

And that they might not be tempted to extend their dominion by means of cavalry, and so get scattered among the surrounding idolatrous nations. Young people will be all the more helpful if they feel fully a part of the “holy and patient, faithful People of God, borne up and enlivened by the Holy Spirit”, for “it will be precisely this holy People of God to liberate us from the plague of clericalism, which is the fertile ground for all these disgraces”.

A way. Third, God is concerned for children. The mention of “more thanpersons who do not know their right hand from their left” (Jonah ) may refer to young children. When God mentions His concern for this group, He highlights His love and concern for all the children of the world.

Exhortation (Speaking Gift) - The special ability God gives some to help strengthen weak, faltering, and fainthearted Christians in such a way that they are motivated to be all God wants them to be.

The ability to help others reach their full potential by means of encouraging, challenging, comforting, and guiding. Instead, we must highlight the way God designed the church to display and proclaim the gospel simply by being the church.

Evangelism is undergirded by love and unity. Jesus said, “By this all people will know that you are my disciples, if you have love for one another” (John ). The pope writes: "Young people are not meant to become discouraged; they are meant to dream great things, to seek vast horizons, to aim higher, to take on the world, to accept challenges and to.

Jesus did not shy from telling His followers about the troubles they would face. In fact, He told them the world would hate them (John ; see also Matthew and 2 Corinthians ). But Jesus’ grim forecast was tempered with cheer; He followed His prediction of trouble with a sparkling word of encouragement: He has overcome.

God. People who have come into a right relationship with God are called saints. The Greek for "saint" is akin to the Greek for "holy." 2. A saint has been sanctified (i.e., separated to God). He has been made holy having been separated from sin and consecrated to God. Christians must, therefore, be holy in all their behavior (1 Pet.

The first part of the people's response in verses a is a profession of faith reciting in a concise summary God's intervention in their history, in a way similar to which we summarize our belief in God's intervention in the history of mankind in the Nicene-Constantinople Creed.

The Holy See APOSTOLIC EXHORTATION GAUDETE ET EXSULTATE OF THE HOLY FATHER FRANCIS ON THE CALL TO HOLINESS IN TODAY’S WORLD 1. “REJOICE AND BE GLAD” (Mt ), Jesus tells those persecuted. The author's judgment included within it that what was needed was reason containing warnings, illustration, and exhortation as to why they must get their lives turned around.

It is very clear from reading the entire book of Hebrews that their problem did not involve sin in its most obvious sense.But God’s servants and their families still need food, and God’s servants still use earthly money to do things they need to do for the good of the body.
