Uplift 2020 —
We had a great week experiencing Uplift virtually last week. Thanks to the Harding crew that has been working so hard to make the Uplift week happen. The theme was “One Hope” from 1 Peter 3:15.
On night one, Brad Montague shared with us about how love really plays a large role in not only the hope that we have as Christians, but in the way that we view ourselves and those around us. He said, “there is no greater name, than the name God calls you. You are a beloved child of God.”
On night two, Jason Darden shared with us about the way that fear can impact your story of hope. He talked about how fear can empower us to move beyond that fear or it can cripple and debilitate us, leaving us unable to move forward or inspire others around us to do the same. He said, “hope is expecting something to happen. A desire for it to happen. Hope gives us the ability to say it’s going to get better again, soon.”
On night three, Jase Robertson shared with us about how hope literally changes everything and gives us a purpose. He said, “some people view hope like an insurance policy. That isn’t true hope. True hope leads to purpose. Everyone wants to have a purpose in their life. Make sharing Jesus and making Him famous your purpose.”
On the last night of Uplift, B. Chris Simpson shared an inspiring message about the power that we have access to through our relationship with God, Jesus, and the Holy Spirit. B. Chris has a special delivery that takes you deep and you don’t realize it happened until he is finished.
“Remember who you are and whose you are!”
