This week's sermon is about encouragement...
1) Why Encourage: what is encouragement- its a calling alongside to help someone- to exhort, comfort, etc. and we all need this- the people Paul spoke with did- many were newer Christians enduring very difficult circumstances. They needed help. So who around us needs help? And what about us- have we sought help?
2) How to Encourage: Paul encourages primarily through words- spoken and written. They are words of different sorts that give people what they need to keep believing and keep following Jesus. In this passage Paul also gives encouragement by raising Eutychus from the dead- it reminds these believers that this all is real.
