As Christians in entertainment we are to encourage other Christians in their spiritual walk with the Lord. But how do we encourage? One way effectively used by the Apostle Paul is to pay attention & openly acknowledge what others do that is right. His encouragement always came at the beginning of his letters. He would state that he was thanking the Lord for them, & prominently list their spiritual accomplishment. He would even tell them that others were talking about them in a positive light or their faith was being “spoken of throughout the world” Rom. 1:8. See also 1 Thess.1: 2-8, 2 Thess.1:4, Phil 1:3-6, 1 Tim 1:1, 1 Cor.1: 4-5. Look through the epistles for more encouragement at the beginning of each letter. Romans 1:12 indicates the purpose of his exhortation was for the encouragement of both parties, for their mutual faith. We can make ourselves available to the Holy Spirit by encouraging someone today, every day in an authentic way by being open to the leading of the Holy Spirit to lift someone up & by acknowledging them & what they are doing is good, right & allowing the Holy Spirit to work through them.
