2022 a Year of Wisdom and Salvation

FORMAT FOR BLOG POSTS 2022

1. “Verse” – Continue to start each one with a verse

2. Salvation Message – move this to the top as it is more important. Slowly transform it over the course of the year – away from the ABC’s of Salvation format (the devo will be moved down)
This section should also begin to include the different expectations of a Christian – not just how to be saved, but what they are getting into and how to do it (the basics). We all know it shouldn’t be a checklist to check off – but in this world of distractions it is nice for even a seasoned Christian to be reminded of all the things they should and want to do.

3. Prayer – continue to pray for wisdom, understanding, and a closer walk with God

4. Reading – Goal is to read through the New Testament (slower take the whole year) and on weekend complete all 5 of the wisdom books. The reading plan is as follows and may vary from this plan if need be – starting each quarter of the year with the gospel story!

6. The study/devotional – in the Year 2022 we will:
.Continue to focus on The Word more than on modern prophecy,
.Continue to focus on getting to know God personally in wisdom and understanding (adding all the wisdom books) – seeking God first
.Focus more on the gospel message and evangelizing – teaching other how to begin their own relationship with God and be saved – and teaching readers how to share the gospel message
.Cross reference the Old Testament for deeper understanding, were as last year we referenced the timeline and historical events

FORMAT FOR SOCIAL MEDIA POSTS 2022

1. Facebook and Instagram account shall be maintained – even though there are very few interactions the salvation message is predominate on the page and it was a social media post that pulled me back to the Lord – may He use it again to pull in another.  

2. Most posts will be an image that is sharable with hashtags to make it easier to find. #IfNotForGrace

3. The posting schedule shall be:
Memory Verse Monday – the memory verse for the month
Tuesday shall be an explanation of the services provided by the blog
Word Wednesday will continue to be a scripture verse – something Jesus said
Thankful Thursday will continue to be a “thanks” themed verse and an opportunity to share what you are thankful for. As the days become more difficult we will need this more and more
Fearless Friday / Faith over fear Friday – will continue to have a fear not themed verse to encourage each other to be strong
Salvation Saturday shall be added to our post – which will be a reoccurring post with the salvation message
Supplication Sunday – comments will be open for prayer requests so we can pray for each other and testimonies so we can brag on what our God is doing!
