I Thessalonians 5:11 “Wherefore comfort yourselves together, and edify one another, even as also ye do.”

Hebrews 3:13 “But exhort one another daily, while it is called To day; lest any of you be hardened through the deceitfulness of sin.”

In light of the environment of despair and hopelessness that surrounds us, we must first steel ourselves against it.  We must resist it, rebuff it, and repeal it.  With all of the attention, passion, and energy that remains, we must edify and exhort others.  After all, they are facing the same thing.

As Christians, we must show the love of Christ by our positive attitudes and our uplifting demeanors.  We must encourage others with our hopefulness.  We must warn those around us about the dangerous cycle of despair.  We must urgently appeal to the inner desire of everyone to see a future that is brighter than the challenges of today.  After all, the fingerprints of a hopeful God are embedded in each of us.  His intent is for everyone to counter discouragement, sorry, misery, and pain through a firm reliance upon Him.

PLEASE PRAY THAT AMERICAN CHRISTIANS WOULD INVEST OUR LIVES TO UPLIFT OTHERS FOR CHRIST.  After all, God has charged us to edify one another.  Let us do so!
