1 Thess. 5:14 We appeal to you, dear brothers and sisters, to instruct those who are not in their place of battle. Be skilled at gently encouraging those who feel themselves inadequate. Be faithful to stand your ground. Help the weak to stand again. Be quick to demonstrate patience with everyone. - There are many "battle worn" believers who are struggling in their fight of faith. You and I are called to come alongside of them, lock arms with them, and help them get back up. Who knows, you may be the one who needs encouragement the next time.
