Helping Others To Win

Rev. James Wong

“Be devoted to one another in brotherly love. Honor one another above yourselves.”                                                                                                              ~Rom 12:10 (NIV)

"Don't pick on people, jump on their failures, criticize their faults — unless, of course, you want the same treatment. 2 That critical spirit has a way of boomeranging.”
                                                                                                          ~Matt 7:1-2 (MSG)

1. Believe In People
“I tell you the truth, anyone who has faith in me will do what I have been doing. He will do even greater things than these, because I am going to the Father.”
~John 14:12 (NIV)

26 When he came to Jerusalem, he tried to join the disciples, but they were all afraid of him, not believing that he really was a disciple. 27 But Barnabas took him and brought him to the apostles. He told them how Saul on his journey had seen the Lord and that the Lord had spoken to him, and how in Damascus he had preached fearlessly in the name of Jesus.”  ~Acts 9:26-28 (NIV)

2. Give People Hope
“God said to Moses: “But commission Joshua, and encourage and strengthen him, for he will lead this people across and will cause them to inherit the land that you will see.” ~Deut 3:28 (NIV)

“But encourage one another daily, as long as it is called Today, so that none of you may be hardened by sin's deceitfulness.”             ~Heb 3:13-14 (NIV)

3. Help People Win Through A Process
“Then Barnabas went to Tarsus to look for Saul, and when he found him, he brought him to Antioch. So for a whole year Barnabas and Saul met with the church and taught great numbers of people. The disciples were called Christians first at Antioch.” ~Acts 11:25-26 (NIV)

4. When you help others win, you Win
“A generous man will prosper; he who refreshes others will himself be refreshed.” ~Prov 11:25 (NIV)
