Bi-weekly devotional, August 6 – 23, 2023

This devotional series is meant to inspire and equip you to share your story. 1 Peter 3:15 says, “But in your hearts revere Christ as Lord. Always be prepared to give an answer to everyone who asks you to give the reason for the hope that you have. But do this with gentleness and respect.” The thought of ‘giving an answer’ can feel scary. It doesn’t need to be. This series will provide a framework for sharing your story in a way that is compelling and attractive to those around you.

1 Thessalonians 2:8 (ESV)
