Contagious Encouragement

By this all will know that you are My disciples,
if you have love for one another.”
John 13:35

On one of our recent trips I heard a radio station give this tag to their program: CONTAGIOUS ENCOURAGEMENT. That caught my attention. This station is working by providing contagious encouragement through Christian music they play and other programs they have. I meditated on those two words and agreed that that is what each of us are: you are contagious encouragement. When you know God’s love in the person of His son, Jesus, and what He has done for you, His love will spill out and tag others.

Just think about the meaning of the word contagious in the natural: it’s something that is easily transmitted, and most of the time we think of it in terms of a sickness or disease. It’s easily spread and others are affected, right? But let’s think about it in a positive way.

As a follower of Jesus, you are contagious encouragement going somewhere to happen. You have the God of creation living inside of you. You are filled with His Spirit, His love, and His power. You have the words of encouragement and love to share.

Jesus told His disciples that people would know His followers by their love because it would affect those around them. It’s HIS LOVE in you that spills out to others, drawing them into wanting what you’ve got, into wanting to know more about Jesus, into coming into His unconditional love and grace.

It’s your time to shine as His contagious encouragement!
