    Hebrews 3:13 – Encourage one another daily as as it called today.

    The first thing I thought of when I read this text and JD’s reflection is that the root word of encouragement is courage. JD says courage is the greatest need among those who want to wake up and follow Jesus with the supernatural power of Holy love. He says, “we need to have courage put into us.”

    If we are God’s instruments of Grace, hope, and courage how do we pour or sow that into others? When I need encouragement, religious platitudes do not help. Those who have tried to encourage me by quoting scripture have no doubt heard me say, “don’t lecture me, I know what the scriptures say.” Kind words help, but they don’t last long. The only way I know that we can sow courage is to be courageous and act courageously. We must model the hope we have within us. I look forward to unpacking encouragement with JD and you over next few weeks.
