Jon TysonA powerful sermon on the need for lifting each other up

through the grace and strength of Jesus. 

As Jon Tyson says about encouragement, "As we do so, we live out the ministry of the Holy Spirit, who is the source of all encouragement, as we can see in 2 Corinthians 1:3-4 ("the Father of compassion and the God of all comfort"), 2 Thessalonians 2:16-17 ("our Lord Jesus Christ...who loved us and by his grace gave us eternal encouragement"), and John 14:26 ("the Advocate, the Holy Spirit"). Though our words may seem simple, God can use them to restore others and shape lives in powerful ways."

Hebrews 10:19-25

"Therefore, brothers and sisters, since we have confidence to enter the Most Holy Place by the blood of Jesus, by a new and living way opened for us through the curtain, that is, his body, and since we have a great priest over the house of God, let us draw near to God with a sincere heart and with the full assurance that faith brings, having our hearts sprinkled to cleanse us from a guilty conscience and having our bodies washed with pure water. Let us hold unswervingly to the hope we profess, for he who promised is faithful. And let us consider how we may spur one another on toward love and good deeds, not giving up meeting together, as some are in the habit of doing, but encouraging one another—and all the more as you see the Day approaching."
