22 Mar #HopeWithinMe – Can you tweet your testimony?

The sacrifice and resurrection of Jesus Christ bring hope. Because of what Jesus did for us, any person can be transformed by the grace of God – no matter who they are or what they have done!

For the past four weeks, we have been sharing different aspects of our faith through the #HopeWithinMe campaign. The Holy Week is in full swing, and Easter is just a few days away. Right now, you have a prime opportunity to share the reason for your hope with your friends and family. Your redemption story is powerful evidence that God is still reigning and working for the good of those who love him.

That’s why the #HopeWithinMe is closing with a challenge for you to share your “Tweet Testimony“. As most of you know, a Twitter message is currently limited to 140 characters (includes punctuation and spaces). So here’s the challenge…share how Jesus changed your life in 140 characters or less.

What is Joe’s “Tweet Testimony?”

Saved not yielded. Arrogantly self-sufficient. Sin led to crisis. Admitted I couldn’t, God proved He could. Surrendered, I live for Jesus. (138 characters)

Although, Tim Wilks and I stumbled across this powerful exercise five years ago working with LCC’s Student Ministries, I was reminded recently that the idea has been around for at least 2000 years. Don’t believe me? Read the testimony of the blind man Jesus healed in John 9. If this man were living today, he would have tweeted this about Jesus (vs. 25): “One thing I do know, that though I was blind, now I see.” (56 characters)

Your Turn

Give it a shot! Follow these steps to tweet your testimony:

  1. Think about how you can share your testimony succinctly. (If you can’t condense it to 140 characters, that’s ok; what’s important is sharing your story!)
  2. Share that brief testimony on Twitter, Facebook, or Instagram. Remember to use #HopeWithinMe.
  3. IMPORTANT: Follow up your post with an invite to Legacy’s Easter Services!

 

Thanks for being a part of the #HopeWithinMe campaign! We can’t wait to see you on Good Friday and Easter Sunday.
