Spiritual Encouragement Found Here!
Billy Graham was quoted to have said, “Man has two great spiritual needs. One is for forgiveness. The other is for goodness.”
How much do you think you would you benefit from some spiritual encouragement?
Sometimes in life, we all need encouragement, often the best encouragement is the spiritual encouragement we get from God from prayer and reading of His word the Bible, and through others that He put strategically into our lives at the exact right time.
Keep in mind that the creator of this world loves you and has a plan for your life, not to harm you, but to give you hope and a future.
Two spiritual question I like to ask you to help you decide how much spiritual encouragement you have in your life today. The first question is, “Do you know and love God with your whole heart mind and soul?” And the second question is, “Do you love your neighbor like yourself even if they are not always nice to you?”
Are you growing closer to God?
I believe that we are spiritual beings living in physical bodies until the day we leave this earth. Are you making your plans to go to heaven? Do you want some spiritual encouragement? Then today is the day to make a commitment to grow closer to God and to share His love with others in your life. ~ Bill Greguska

Why I Hate Religion, But Love Jesus?
If we are to go forward, we must go back and rediscover those precious values – that all reality hinges on moral foundations and that all reality has spiritual control. Martin Luther King, Jr.
Philippians 2:1-2 Therefore if you have any encouragement from being united with Christ, if any comfort from his love, if any common sharing in the Spirit, if any tenderness and compassion, then make my joy complete by being like-minded, having the same love, being one in spirit and of one mind.
“Religion” or “Relationship” With Jesus Christ.
- Religion is a set of man-made rules and regulations to dictate over those following their ways. (an organized system of beliefs, ceremonies, and rules used to worship a god or a group of gods)
- Relationship with Jesus Christ is a daily personal way of life between our creator God and ourselves based on the truth of God from the Bible, not from a denomination’s interpretation.
Suggested Reading From The Bible For Spiritual Encouragement:
Of course the entire Bible is the inspired word of God, yet there needs to be a place to start your reading. Here my suggestion for you on where to start your personal reading…
- 1 John.
- The Gospel of Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John.
- The Psalms and Proverbs.
- The entire Bible is also full of wisdom and truth.
As you learn about Jesus Christ through prayer, Bible reading and fellowship with other Christians, God will guide you and give you the wisdom and knowledge you need for every challenge in life.

Our scientific power has outrun our spiritual power. We have guided missiles and misguided men. ~ Martin Luther King, Jr.
Romans 7:14-17 We know that the law is spiritual, but I am unspiritual, sold as a slave to sin. I do not understand what I do. For what I want to do I do not do, but what I hate I do. And if I do what I do not want to do, I agree that the law is good. As it is, it is no longer I myself who do it, but it is sin living in me.
