In today’s world, encouraging words, or “good news” stories are seldom heard, and not enough uplifting examples, real heroes, and genuine expressions of appreciation can be seen. But imagine for just a moment what a wonderful world it would be if everyone would follow Christ’s example of encouraging others. You can begin by sharing the most encouraging message of all–the message of salvation. In SHARING THE GIFT OF ENCOURAGEMENT, Charles Stanly teaches that God’s sovereignty over all of life is the foundation of hope and comfort in the midst of life’s storms. He shows you how to have lasting peace and how to share the gift of encouragement with others. This study guide will take you through the gifts Jesus gives you, and will encourage you to share those gifts with others. Dr. Charles Stanley’s series of Bible study guides feature insights and wisdom of this beloved pastor and author. Small groups and individuals who want a Bible study that’s spiritually sound and practical will find a wealth of ideas to help them understand and apply the Scriptures to the real world. Each title takes a unique fourfold approach to get the most out of Bible study time – emphasizing personal identification with the Scripture passage, recognition of your emotional response, reflection of the passage’s meaning and application, and taking steps to apply what’s been learned. This is a sound way to explore the Word of God.
