Gift number four is “exhorting.”  New Testament examples of exhorting include Barnabas (Acts 4:36; 11:22,23), Paul and Barnabas (Acts 13:15), the Holy Spirit (John 14:16; 16:7) and Jesus (1 John 2:1).  The word means to call to or summon (Matthew 8:5), to beseech, urge (Hebrews 13:18,19), to encourage (1 Corinthians 14:3; 1 Thessalonians 2:1-4), to comfort (1 Thessalonians 5:11; 2 Corinthians 1:3-7). 

The Bible calls us along side to support the saints (2 Corinthians 8:1-6), to have hope (Romans 15:4-6), to live in harmony (Philippians 4:2), to excel in love (1 Thessalonians 4:9-12) and to be saved (2 Corinthians 5:20-6:2).
