ENCOURAGEMENT is a very important word for any and every Christian (Child of GOD) to be an active 'take the lead' and/or participate in daily in each of our lives. The Bible tells us to "love one another as ye would have them (brethren and the lost) do unto you!". In a simple modern day terminology, it is showing the love that Christ has shown in your life and He (God) wants us to be the best witness and disciple we can be on that very day! {some days are better than others, as we all know this truth!}.

"Do unto others as ye would have them do unto you".

"Put Christ first in your life each and every day"! And, in so doing, you will even be a 'love of God' witness to people you didn't even expect!".

"Praise God that He provided a Savior"! And, His name is Jesus Christ"!
