Encouragement looks different for different people.
Last week, we introduced the 3 reasons for this year-long focus on hope.
Hope throughout the year is designed to do the following:
1) To provide hope-filled encouragement for Christ-centered leaders
2) To remind you of God’s presence and power
3) To disciple you to lead with hope
Along the way, we’ll have guests share their stories of hope.
This week, we’re exploring the first goal: to provide hope-filled encouragement for Christ-centered leaders.
Just for kicks, Sara looked up the definition of encouragement and guess what it said? The action of giving someone support, confidence, or hope.
The action of giving someone:
When we talk about giving you these things, really what we’re talking about is offering or sharing. If you’re not a willing participant, it’s hard to receive anything.
What we can do is offer support, seek to offer reminders to help fuel your confidence, and remind you of the God we know in Jesus who is hope.
As you explore what hope-filled encouragement looks like for you, perhaps the greatest encouragement you can offer is to remind people where you see Jesus.
