Grace and Peace to you from Jesus Christ, who was and is and is to come.
What is the Hope Circle?
Be a Person of Peace
The Hope Circle is a commitment to be a person of peace, using your relationships to bring one other person into a relationship with Jesus.
We encourage you to love others, not judge them, while bringing peace into their lives today, so they can have hope in the future.
PLEASE DO SOMETHING: BE A PERSON OF PEACE
Luke 10:1-2, 5-7 The Lord recruited and deployed 70 more disciples. He sent them ahead, …to visit all the towns and settlements say, “Peace on this house!” If a child of peace… one who welcomes God’s message of peace is there, your peace will rest on him… stay where you are welcome.”
Two-thousand years ago Jesus sent the 70 out to go from village to village seeking out persons of peace to help prepare the way for Him. In the same way, we today in the 21st century, are searching the global internet for persons of peace to help prepare the way for others to hear about Jesus.
Step 1. Make a list of family members, friends and acquaintances who are non-religious.
Step 2. Pray for them without being anxious presenting your request to God with thanksgiving. (Philippians 4:6)
Step 3. Ask God to lay one person on your heart knowing whatever you ask for in prayer, believe it and you will receive it. (Mark 11:24)
Step 4. Pray for that person, listen to their story and earn the privilege to share your story and who Jesus is and why you believe. (I Peter 3:15)
Step 5. Through your relationship, talk about Jesus. Use the internet and social media resources available through God of Hope. (Romans 10:14-15)
Step 6. Allow the power of God’s Holy Spirit, working through the community of believers, to soften their heart and open their mind so that they might believe in their hearts and confess with their mouths, that God has revealed Himself to us through Jesus, the Messiah, and be reconciled with God, find peace and (have) hope. (Romans 10:9-10)
Step 7. Return to Step 1.
