Acts 13:13-16, 26-31

Paul travelled all over the place telling people about Jesus - how he died (v. 29), how he rose from the dead, and how he is alive today (v.31). It was a real message of encouragement to the people of Antioch (v.15)!

The Holy Spirit wants us to encourage people, too. Try some of these sentences out on your family and friends (make sure you mean them!):

  • You're really good at .....
  • I like it when you.....
  • You make me feel good about .......
  • Thank you, you're .........
But the Holy Spirit wants us to encourage people in a much more important way, by strengthening them in their faith and helping them to keep going as Christians.

Have a go at filling this in:

"I'm going to say something encouraging to _________________________in the next twenty-four hours. I'm going to say to them that ____________________________

I'm going to pray for the Holy Spirit to help me."
