Joanne Lowe's Meditations

"And they, continuing daily with one accord in the temple, and breaking bread from house to house, did eat their meat with gladness and singleness of heart, Praising God, and having favour with all the people.  And the Lord added to the church daily such as should be saved."
Acts 2:46, 47 (King James Version)
      I believe if we would encourage each other every day it would be a lot easier to keep serving Jesus when satan hurls his vicious poisonous darts of discouragement and lies at us.  Nothing would make satan any happier than if he could discourage us so much that we would stop serving Jesus.
      Over the last six years, I have received emails from pastors who were so discouraged they were tempted to stop pastoring their churches.  Our pastors and their families not only need our prayers, they also need encouragement.  They are human just like we are and they need to know that we appreciate them.
      If you are serving Jesus, I'm sure that you too get discouraged like I do.  We need to be encouraged every day.  Our precious Saviour has feelings and He also gets discouraged when people reject Him.  Are you encouraging someone every day?  Are you encouraging Jesus every day by your service to Him? 
      It is time we shut off the television set and get out of our comfort zones and become a daily encouragement to Jesus and to one another.  Jesus left His home and His Father for us.  Are you willing to give your life in full time service to Jesus?  He died for you.  What are you doing for Him?
