People Fuel - Week 4

“…Since we are all one body in Christ, we belong to each other, and each of us needs all the others.” Romans 12:5 NLT

Then he said to the crowd, “If any of you wants to be my follower, you must turn from your selfish ways, take up your cross daily, and follow me. Luke 9:23

The generous will prosper; those who refresh others will themselves be refreshed. Proverbs 11:25 NLT

THE NUTRIENTS LIST

QUADRANT 2: CONVEY THE GOOD

Gracious words are a honeycomb, sweet to the soul and healing to the bones. Proverbs 16:24 NIV

AFFIRMATION

Let us think of ways to motivate one another to acts of love and good works. Hebrews 10:24

When all the people were being baptized, Jesus was baptized too. And as he was praying, heaven was opened and the Holy Spirit descended on him in bodily form like a dove. And a voice came from heaven: “You are my Son, whom I love; with you I am well pleased. Luke 3:21-22 NIV

So you have not received a spirit that makes you fearful slaves. Instead, you received God’s Spirit when he adopted you as his own children. Now we call him, “Abba, Father.” For his Spirit joins with our spirit to affirm that we are God’s children. Romans 8:15-16

ENCOURAGEMENT

It’s as simple as this: the cure for discouragement is encouragement.” -Dr. John Townsend

So encourage each other and build each other up, just as you are already doing. 1 Thessalonians 5:11 NLT

RESPECT

Show proper respect to everyone, love the family of believers, fear God, honor the emperor. 1 Peter 2:17 NIV

“Men are developed the same way gold is mined. Several tons of dirt must be moved to get an ounce of gold; but you don’t go into the mine looking for dirt. You go in looking for gold.” -Andrew Carnegie

When he saw the crowds, he had compassion on them because they were confused and helpless, like sheep without a shepherd. He said to his disciples, “The harvest is great, but the workers are few. So pray to the Lord who is in charge of the harvest; ask him to send more workers into his fields.” Matthew 9:36-38 NLT

HOPE

For I know the plans I have for you,” says the Lord. “They are plans for good and not for disaster, to give you a future and a hope.  Jeremiah 29:11 NLT

FORGIVENESS

Get rid of all bitterness, rage, anger, harsh words, and slander, as well as all types of evil behavior. Instead, be kind to each other, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, just as God through Christ has forgiven you. Ephesians 4:31-32 NLT

CELEBRATION

Rejoice with those who rejoice… Romans 12:15 NIV

In the same way, there is more joy in heaven over one lost sinner who repents and returns to God than over ninety-nine others who are righteous and haven’t strayed away! Luke 15:7 NLT
