Stay Positive Week 3 – I'm Encouraging


Speaker: Grant Agler


When we arrived in Macedonia, there was no rest for us. We faced conflict from every direction, with battles on the outside and fear on the inside.
2 Corinthians 7:4-6 (NLT)
 
But God, who encourages those who are discouraged, encouraged us by the arrival of Titus.
2 Corinthians 7:4-6 (NLT)
 
Question #1 (this and the question at the same time)
Are you making people better or worse?
 
Do not let any unwholesome talk come out of your mouths, but only what is helpful for building others up according to their needs, that it may benefit those who listen.
Ephesians 4:29
 
Question #2 (this and the question at the same time)
Is God honored when you speak?
 
With the tongue we praise our Lord and Father, and with it we curse human beings, who have been made in God’s likeness.
James 3:9
 
Out of the same mouth come praise and cursing. My brothers and sisters, this should not be.
James 3:10
 
Question #3 (this and the question at the same time)
Are you just blowing smoke?  
 
See to it, brothers and sisters, that none of you has a sinful, unbelieving heart that turns away from the living God.
Hebrews 3:12
 
But encourage one another daily, as long as it is called “Today,” so that none of you may be hardened by sin’s deceitfulness.
Hebrews 3:13

Grant is our resident farmboy. He grew up in the cornfields of northwest Nebraska. He spent his early days living far from God. As Grant says, "I gave God the middle finger and didn't really care about faith at all." As a young man, he became convinced that God was real. He gave his life to Jesus and experienced God's amazing grace that previously made no sense to him. After experiencing that grace, Grant felt God calling him to teach the message of the gospel. Over the past 20 years, he has been preaching and teaching. Grant, his wife, Bethany, and their four children moved to Michigan in 2011, and he joined the 2|42 team in 2019. Grant is always good for a laugh, but more importantly, he explains biblical concepts in ways anyone can understand.
