Encouraging friends keep encouraging friends

When we get together, I want to encourage you in your faith, but I also want to be encouraged by yours. Rom. 1:12

Every one of us needs at least one friend who knows our redemption story, who believes in the grace on which we fall and sees our rough patches for what they are, and who literally become a refuge when we feel vulnerable and exposed. We all need to be treasured. Experiencing trust in a relationship with someone we can see makes trusting Christ, who we can’t see, a more tangible experience.

Lord, thank you for the kind of encouragement that makes faith grow.
