“Therefore encourage one another and build up one another.”
1 Thessalonians 5:11
Wow! It’s been a year since The Bible Speaks to You Podcast was launched. And what a year it’s been.
This special anniversary edition is designed to build us all up. You’ll hear from listeners around the world who have found comfort and correction, healing, spiritual growth, and a deeper sense of God’s presence and love in their lives.
Unity and strength in the body of Christ
I hope you find encouragement in hearing how The Bible Speaks to You Podcast has helped others. When one member of the body of Christ is blessed and strengthened, we are all blessed and strengthened. When one of us grows, we all grow. Because there is unity in the body of Christ. God binds us together in unity and brotherly love.

1 Thessalonians 5:11
Therefore encourage one another and build up one another, just as you also are doing.
from whom the whole body, being fitted and held together by what every joint supplies, according to the proper working of each individual part, causes the growth of the body for the building up of itself in love.
