Good morning family!!!!

 

You did it! You are almost there!!!

The 21 Days of Hope has been an exciting adventure. I pray you were challenged, stirred up to share your faith through the different resources that we shared. I hope and believe that you were able to take your mind off your circumstances for a few minutes of the day to focus on the primary and most important call on our lives, sharing our story of transformation through Jesus Christ.  Be encouraged to live for Christ.

Day 19

 

Subject: Let's Spread Hope Today 

Goal: Hope Through You Forever.

Theme: Social

Hey family,

 

Did you realize that for the past couple weeks you have been actively preaching the gospel, sharing the good news, bringing hope and sharing love using your phone and social media. Imagine how easy it is to preach the gospel and also invite someone to church? Without over thinking it. It removes the nervousness we feel.

 

Here’s an easy challenge for you! It will only take a few minutes and a few keystrokes.

 

Go to the church’s social platforms and post scripture about salvation like John 3:16.

❤️ Give the posts some love (posts with more love reach more people)!

@ Tag a friend in the comments and let them know-God loves you. You are special and unique.

🙌 Share the post on your social media page - add comments letting people know you Love Jesus and why.

Day 18

 

Subject: Get Ready

 

Goal: Hope To You

 

Theme: Minister

 

Good morning, family.

 

Congrats! You've made it. 


We are so excited. Easter was awesome!  


You can use today to get caught up on any days you might have missed. Pick one or two action steps that you can do today and ask God to use those small steps in big ways.
Today is also a great day to reach out to those you've invited to check on them especially those who you did not see in church. Check in to answer any questions they might have and build excitement for Mother’s Day’s!!!! God is at work! Can't wait to worship Him with you.

 

Remember, we are called to reconcile the world to God through the Christ in us. We are the workmanship of God to showcase the good works of God. We are ambassadors for the kingdom of God. Trust the Christ in you and not your own abilities, always remember Christ in you the power to live.

Day 16

 

Subject: Generous Hope

 

Goal: Hope Through You

 

Theme: Generosity

 

Dear family,

 

Today has one of the highest difficulty ratings through the 21 days. Why? Because we’re talking about generosity. But don’t quit...keep reading and see why this day may be the most crucial day of all in the 21 days. 

 

First, have you noticed how generosity is right in the middle of the Easter story? Look at the most famous passage in all of the Bible, John 3:16:

 

For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.

 

Notice how generosity is embedded in the character of God and is central to the Easter message. Now, here’s a huge “aha!” moment for you in this adventure. Generosity is central to the Easter story, but is also unlocks how deeply we receive the message. Look at what Jesus says in Luke 6:38:

 

Give and it will be given to you…for with the measure you use it will be measured back to you.

 

So let me ask you a question…Do you need more hope in your life? 

 

If so, the best thing you can do is receive God’s free gift of grace. Then the next step? Start sharing hope generously with others. Sometimes the best way to experience hope is to bring hope to others. If you’ve ever been on a mission trip then you know how much of a blessing being a blessing can be. 

 

So here’s your chance to put this into action. How can you bring hope with your generosity this Easter season? Here are four starter ideas:

 

Make a financial donation to a non-profit making an impact in our community.

Set up a recurring donation to the church to support our outreach and missions.

 

Bless a family in need - maybe a single mom, widow, or someone who lost their job.

 

Take those items you were about to sell on Facebook Marketplace and bless another family with them.

 

As you give hope, remember God has a way of bringing more hope to your heart. John Bunyan illustrated it best when he said, “There was a man, they called him mad. The more he gave, the more he had.”

Day 15

 

Subject: Easter Invite

 

Goal: Hope Through You

 

Theme: Social

 

Hey family,

 

Have you taken a moment yet this year to reflect on the importance of Easter and the impact the message of Easter has on your life? It’s too amazing to keep to yourself, right? 

 

Today's challenge is all about inviting others to experience the hope of Easter in their life. So let's go ahead and share!

 

Step 1 - Post an Easter invite to your friends on social media. When you create your post answer these two questions: Why are you so excited to celebrate Easter? How could someone join you in celebrating with your church? 

 

Step 2 - Remember the three people we've been praying for? Shoot them a text invite. Here are some example scripts to get you started. Remember, they might say no, and that’s okay. “No” now doesn’t mean “no” forever. Plus, if we don’t ask at all, it's for sure a “no.” Step out in faith, and trust the Lord will guide your words. 

 

“Hey {FIRST_NAME}, how are things going?”

[RESPONSE]

 

“That’s great! Well, I just wanted to reach out and see if you had any plans to attend church on Easter Sunday.”

 

[IF RESPONSE IS “NO”]

 

“Well, I’d love for you to come with me to my church. It’s called [NAME OF CHURCH]. I think you’ll like it. We have

 

[NAME ELEMENT THAT WOULD RELATE TO THEM LIKE GREAT KIDS AREA, GREAT MUSIC, RELATABLE PASTOR, ETC.]

 

[IF RESPONSE IS “YES” OR THEY AREN’T INTERESTED]

“No worries at all. I just wanted to throw out the opportunity. If you ever are looking for a church to visit, you’re always welcome to come with me. We’d love to have you.”

 

Keep it upbeat and relational. Don’t be afraid of a “no.” Again, this might plant a seed that will grow later. You got this!

Day 14

 

Subject: Your Faith Story

 

Goal: Hope Through You

 

Theme: Social

 

 

Dear family

 

Have you ever watched a movie, then posted about it on Facebook? Or tried a new Amazon product and shared your experience? Have you posted a quick story of something that happened throughout your day?

 

Pretty simple, right? There’s a reason we call it social media - we use social media as a tool to connect with others and share our stories.

 

Today’s challenge: apply this same concept to sharing your faith story. Make a post about when you decided to follow Jesus and how that decision impacted your life (only 1-2 sentences).

 

I know that sharing your faith story on social media can sound intimidating. But here are 3 things to remember:

 

You tell stories every day. Every time you tell a friend “the craziest thing happened the other day” or “let me tell you what happened at the grocery store,” that’s storytelling. You’re already a pro!

It doesn’t have to be polished. In fact, it shouldn’t be polished. It should be your words, telling your story.

There’s no right or wrong way to do this - because there’s not a cookie-cutter approach to telling your story! Remember, it’s the story of how God started working in your life. You’re the best one to tell this story because you were the one who witnessed it firsthand!

 

So jump on social media and make a short post about when you decided to follow Jesus and how it impacted your life. 

 

Not on social media? Ask God to give you an opportunity to share your story in conversation today, and when the opportunity comes, take it!

 

Bonus Step:

 

Share your faith story over a selfie video. This video should be about 45-90 seconds long. You might think that’s too short, but the goal isn’t to share every detail, but just the most important ones. You want to be sure to include where you were in life when you came to faith in Jesus. Then share what made you want to make that decision. Were you invited to church? Were you in tough life circumstances and then turned to God? Were you a child or teen when you came to Christ? Then share where you are now, and why you love living for God and going to church.

DAY 13

 

Subject: Tuesday Encouragement

 

Goal: Hope Through You

 

Theme: Social

 

 

Dear family,

 

People talk a lot about avoiding “mindless” scrolling. Today’s challenge (should you choose to accept it!) is to scroll “mindfully”. (This action step is perfect for a Monday!) Open your favorite social media app and start scrolling. As you scroll, take time to:


 

  • Comment encouraging words

  • Compliment people’s vacation photos

  • Let people know “I’ve missed you! How have you been?”

  • Tell people how adorable their pet photos are

 

And more! Remember anytime you are on social today your only goal is to encourage others. Scroll mindfully and use your scrolling to engage and bring encouragement! Ready, set… go!

 

P. S. Not on social media? Do this in everyday life! When you pass someone in the grocery store, compliment their hair or shoes. Co-worker gives you a call? Let them know why you appreciate them. A friend walks by with a dog? Greet the dog and ask your friend how the week’s been!  Remember that someone recently returned from a vacation and text them to ask how it went or to let them know that you’ve missed seeing them!  The possibilities are endless.

We love you and can’t wait to hear your 21 days of hope stories , experiences and challenges. We hope you are participating and you are being challenged to share your Jesus with your world.

DAY 12

 

Subject: Hope in the New life in Christ. 

 

Goal: Hope To You


Theme: Devotion


Dear family,


Easter is a story of hope - Hope in the promise that we have eternal life through Jesus!
If you’ve been in church for any length of time, you’re probably nodding your head. But when’s the last time you stopped to think about the significance of that?


Today, I’d like to share with you a passage & poem that will stop you in your tracks with the beauty of the Gospel. Read John 1:1-18. Praying that you rest in the hope of Jesus today. 


P. S. If you want to share the hope of Jesus with others today, consider heading outside, and taking a picture of something that’s a “promise”- a bud or a newly-planted tree or something that is experiencing new life or new beginning. Then, share from your heart the hope that Jesus has been bringing you in this season.

Day 11

 

Subject: Share Your Hope Story

 

Goal: Hope Through You

 

Theme: Social

 

Good morning, family,

 

Let’s talk about a great way you can bring hope today! How? By sharing your hope story. In this step of the 21 days, we want to hear from you:

 

Has God been at work in you?

Has God been at work through you?

 

Let us know your story. Here are ways you can share your story today:

 

Share with your small group.

 

Create a post in the church Facebook group.

 

Let us know before or after a weekend service.

The bottom line is when God is at work, we need to share the story.

Day 10

 

Subject: Prayer Makes A Difference

 

Goal: Hope Through You

 

Theme: Minister

 

Dear Family,

 

There’s nothing quite like knowing that someone is praying for you. Don’t you agree?

 

This challenge has a few steps -- for the biggest impact, make sure you do them all! 

 

Post on social media asking how you can pray for your friends. Make the post fit your personality. (Text, photo, or video all can work.)

Pray for every request you receive!

Write out your prayer and share it with them.

 

Be prepared to share a prayer request with them if asked how they can pray for you! One of the most important things we can be doing this Easter season is praying for our friends and family.

DAY 8

 

Subject: Not So Random Kindness

 

Goal: Hope Through You

 

Theme: Generosity

 

 

Dear Family

 

Today’s challenge is a 6/10.

 

It’s not hard, but it will require a little bit of thought and effort.

 

It’s this: perform at least one act of generous kindness.

 

Now, I know, the first thought that comes to your mind is probably, “Oh, they want me to pay for a stranger’s coffee at Starbucks.”

 

And you can, that’s fine.  

 

But in order to maximize the hope, I encourage you to think beyond that.  Take a couple of minutes and dream up some ways you can really care for someone- whether you choose to bless a stranger or someone in your life!

 

Can you say an encouraging word?  

Pray with someone who’s struggling?  

Buy them a gift card and write them a note?

Offer to buy dinner and bring it over, or watch the kids while they go out?

Go over and above for someone who’s normally overlooked, like a server at a restaurant?

 

Make your plan, carve out the time to give your money and/or attention, and let’s shower our community with not so random acts of generosity today!

DAY 7

Subject: Hope In His Word

Goal: Hope To You

Theme: Devotional

 

Dear family,

 

If you've ever been in a season of waiting, you know it can be challenging. In Psalm 130, David offers us a blueprint for how to wait well. Let’s jump into this devotion on how to wait well.

I wait for the Lord; I wait and put my hope in His word. I wait for the Lord more than watchmen for the morning - more than watchmen for the morning. Psalm 130:5-6  [CSB]

 

Waiting is part of life, and we've all experienced both the anticipation and the agony of the wait - the birth of a child, a diagnosis, a marriage proposal - the question is not will we wait, but how will we wait. David offers us a blueprint for how to wait well.

 

I wait for the Lord.

 

If we wait for our own outcome to happen, the waiting will eventually disappoint us. David made his declaration to wait for the Lord. It is good to remember that we wait for someone, not something.

 

I wait and put my hope in His word. 

 

Where we place our hope is critical. Will we hope in the words of men, or in the Word of God? David knew that God's Word is true and that God will always be faithful to what He has spoken. Where better to put our hope while we wait?

I wait for the Lord more than watchmen for the morning.

Watchmen in the night longed for the break of day, but not as those who waited to see if it would come, but as those who waited knowing it would come. More than that, David waited for the Lord. Today, creation waits and groans for the Sons of Gods. May we wait more than the watchmen for the morning!

Pray:

Father, I wait on You! I put my hope in Your Word and my faith is in Your coming. Teach me, Lord, to wait well.

Theme: Minister

 

Dear family,

 

You've made it to Day 6! Today is a catch-up day. Use your time to get all caught up and then get some rest.

 

I want to encourage you throughout the 21 days to make worship a priority in your life. One of the best ways your soul can be full of hope is to be sure you continue to be engaged in worship services. 

 

Read through this passage in Hebrews 10:19-25 and see how the Bible connects Easter with a call to persevere in our faith:

 

Therefore, brothers and sisters, since we have confidence to enter the Most Holy Place by the blood of Jesus, by a new and living way opened for us through the curtain, that is, his body, and since we have a great priest over the house of God, let us draw near to God with a sincere heart and with the full assurance that faith brings, having our hearts sprinkled to cleanse us from a guilty conscience and having our bodies washed with pure water. Let us hold unswervingly to the hope we profess, for he who promised is faithful. And let us consider how we may spur one another on toward love and good deeds, not giving up meeting together, as some are in the habit of doing, but encouraging one another—and all the more as you see the Day approaching.

 

That is exactly what we are doing in the 21 Days of Hope. Let's not give up now. Keep going and keep encouraging

Dear family

 

We can’t wait to celebrate Easter with you!  So many people are praying for and preparing for Easter -- have you thought about what you might do to serve with your church family?  

 

You'll notice we gave today's action step the highest difficulty rating so far. That's because today we're talking about serving. This theme of serving others is prevalent throughout Jesus' life and certainly, we see it as a major theme of Easter. You're probably familiar with Jesus' words in Mark chapter 10:42-45

 

So Jesus called them together and said, “You know that the rulers in this world lord it over their people, and officials flaunt their authority over those under them. 43 But among you it will be different. Whoever wants to be a leader among you must be your servant, 44 and whoever wants to be first among you must be the slave of everyone else. 45 For even the Son of Man came not to be served but to serve others and to give his life as a ransom for many.”

 

If you’re already plugged into a place this Easter to serve, THANK YOU!  We can’t wait to serve with you!

Theme: Devotional

 

Good morning, family,

 

“I hope my team wins!”

“I hope the grocery store has what I’m looking for!”

“I hope I get to see my friends soon!”

 

We toss around the word “hope” very lightly. But what does hope really mean?

 

Hope: 

To trust in, wait for, look for, or desire something or someone; or to expect something beneficial in the future.

 

Today's action step is intentionally simple. Spend a few minutes today thinking about the hope you have from God, in His word, and in His love. Here are a few Psalms you can meditate on:

 

For God alone, O my soul, wait in silence,

for my hope is from him. [Psalm 62:5]

 

You are my hiding place and my shield;

I hope in your word. [Psalm 119:114]

 

But the LORD takes pleasure in those who fear him,

in those who hope in his steadfast love. [Psalm 147:11]

Dear sisters and brothers,

Today’s challenge is something you already do every single day. Remember those 3 names you wrote down yesterday? The ones God put on your heart?

All you have to do is text those 3 people. Super easy, right? Think about how many texts you send daily. Today’s challenge is just to send 3.

Pull out those names and shoot them a text that says something like:

“Hey, you’ve been on my mind! How are you doing?”

“Hey, how’s your week been? You were on my heart this week.”

“Just wanted to let you know that I’m thinking of you! How are you?”

“I was going to take some time to pray today and wondered if there is something I could pray for you about.”

Super simple! Block out about 15 minutes today, pull out your phone, and text them. The goal is to let them know you’re there for them and that prayer works.

 

You got this!

Set aside 10 minutes for this step. During that time, silence your phone and eliminate distractions. When you're ready, here's what we are going to do:

Ask God to put three people on your heart.

Write their names down (in a notebook you can come back to later!).

Begin asking God how you might be an answer to their prayers this Easter season.

To conclude your time with God, spend 5 minutes praying for those people.

And that’s it. Great job!

Good morning family.

It is Day #1 of the 21 Days of Hope.

The beautiful part of the Easter season is how it refreshes our soul. It brings much-needed hope to our lives. So the goal of today’s step in the 21 Days of Hope is to allow the hope of Easter to start refreshing your soul. And as with most aspects of our walk with Jesus, that will begin in prayer. Let’s jump into a devotion on The 6 Prayers Your Heart Needs This Easter.

Let’s look at some of the first words spoken that first Easter::

“𝗧𝗵𝗲 𝗮𝗻𝗴𝗲𝗹 𝘀𝗮𝗶𝗱 𝘁𝗼 𝘁𝗵𝗲 𝘄𝗼𝗺𝗲𝗻, ‘𝗗𝗼 𝗻𝗼𝘁 𝗯𝗲 𝗮𝗳𝗿𝗮𝗶𝗱, 𝗳𝗼𝗿 𝗜 𝗸𝗻𝗼𝘄 𝘁𝗵𝗮𝘁 𝘆𝗼𝘂 𝗮𝗿𝗲 𝗹𝗼𝗼𝗸𝗶𝗻𝗴 𝗳𝗼𝗿 𝗝𝗲𝘀𝘂𝘀, 𝘄𝗵𝗼 𝘄𝗮𝘀 𝗰𝗿𝘂𝗰𝗶𝗳𝗶𝗲𝗱. 𝗛𝗲 𝗶𝘀 𝗻𝗼𝘁 𝗵𝗲𝗿𝗲; 𝗵𝗲 𝗵𝗮𝘀 𝗿𝗶𝘀𝗲𝗻, 𝗷𝘂𝘀𝘁 𝗮𝘀 𝗵𝗲 𝘀𝗮𝗶𝗱. 𝗖𝗼𝗺𝗲 𝗮𝗻𝗱 𝘀𝗲𝗲 𝘁𝗵𝗲 𝗽𝗹𝗮𝗰𝗲 𝘄𝗵𝗲𝗿𝗲 𝗵𝗲 𝗹𝗮𝘆. 𝗧𝗵𝗲𝗻 𝗴𝗼 𝗾𝘂𝗶𝗰𝗸𝗹𝘆 𝗮𝗻𝗱 𝘁𝗲𝗹𝗹 𝗵𝗶𝘀 𝗱𝗶𝘀𝗰𝗶𝗽𝗹𝗲𝘀: “𝗛𝗲 𝗵𝗮𝘀 𝗿𝗶𝘀𝗲𝗻 𝗳𝗿𝗼𝗺 𝘁𝗵𝗲 𝗱𝗲𝗮𝗱 𝗮𝗻𝗱 𝗶𝘀 𝗴𝗼𝗶𝗻𝗴 𝗮𝗵𝗲𝗮𝗱 𝗼𝗳 𝘆𝗼𝘂 𝗶𝗻𝘁𝗼 𝗚𝗮𝗹𝗶𝗹𝗲𝗲. 𝗧𝗵𝗲𝗿𝗲 𝘆𝗼𝘂 𝘄𝗶𝗹𝗹 𝘀𝗲𝗲 𝗵𝗶𝗺.” 𝗡𝗼𝘄 𝗜 𝗵𝗮𝘃𝗲 𝘁𝗼𝗹𝗱 𝘆𝗼𝘂.’” Matthew 28:5-7 [NIV].

Let us see six different ways we can pray through this passage of scripture. I encourage you to take time and pray these as you read through each one:

"𝗗𝗼 𝗻𝗼𝘁 𝗯𝗲 𝗮𝗳𝗿𝗮𝗶𝗱,"  — Dear God, I hand over to You those things that make me so afraid. Resurrect the parts of my faith that are squelched by fear.

"𝗜 𝗸𝗻𝗼𝘄 𝘁𝗵𝗮𝘁 𝘆𝗼𝘂 𝗮𝗿𝗲 𝗹𝗼𝗼𝗸𝗶𝗻𝗴 𝗳𝗼𝗿 𝗝𝗲𝘀𝘂𝘀," — God, when my soul is searching, may I know that the answer to every longing is found in You.

"𝗛𝗲 𝗵𝗮𝘀 𝗿𝗶𝘀𝗲𝗻," — God, the fact that Jesus is risen should lift my head, my heart and my attitude. Help me live today as if I really believe this with every part of my life.

"𝗝𝘂𝘀𝘁 𝗮𝘀 𝗵𝗲 𝘀𝗮𝗶𝗱," — Dear Jesus, You keep Your promises. Show me how to live as though I believe that with every part of me. Help me trust You more, obey You more and resemble You more.

"𝗖𝗼𝗺𝗲 𝗮𝗻𝗱 𝘀𝗲𝗲," — Jesus, You had the angels invite the women in to see for themselves that You had risen. You invite me into these personal revelations every day. Forgive me for sometimes rushing about and forgetting to come and see for myself … You, Your Word, Your insights.

"𝗧𝗵𝗲𝗻 𝗴𝗼 𝗾𝘂𝗶𝗰𝗸𝗹𝘆 𝗮𝗻𝗱 𝘁𝗲𝗹𝗹 𝗵𝗶𝘀 𝗱𝗶𝘀𝗰𝗶𝗽𝗹𝗲𝘀," — Jesus, I don’t want to be a secret-keeper with my faith. I want to be a bold and gracious truth-proclaimer. For You. With You. Because of You. Me, the girl whom You loved and redeemed.

In Jesus' Name, Amen.

What a powerful way to pray as we kick off the 21 Days Of Hope. I love how this passage builds hope in our hearts and then helps us to start sharing hope with others. That is what Easter is all about.
