Summary: – Two things need to happen for the church: we need to be empowered by the Spirit of God to be his church, and to engage with each other to encourage and develop together. We are therefore both empowered and encouraged by God! Sometimes, the untaught are in the position of encouraging us to teach them. One example is the eunuch who invited Phillip to teach him, a rarer occurrence, but so welcome. Acts 13:42-43 show where the people in a Greek town invited them to listened and then asked Paul and Barnabas to return the next week to continue teaching them. Do we URGE each other to refrain from giving up? We should!
