Preview of 2020
Posted on November 25, 2019 by Graeme Wilson in Freedom Fighters
Good morning, brothers (and some sisters). As we approach Thanksgiving Day, our Freedom Fighter team wants to thank you for reading our weekly blogs and partnering with us. There are some days that I question if anyone is even reading them, and then we will receive some feedback from you. That means so much to all of us. So from the bottom of our hearts, we say, THANK YOU.
2019 is quickly coming to an end, and we wanted to share with you some exciting information about next year.
Our theme for 2020 is DESTINATION HOLINESS – Set apart for more. Holiness is not a topic that we hear very often these days, so we are looking forward to unpacking that topic throughout the year, and especially during our summer conference season. (Preview Schedule for Summer 2020)
Our theme verse this year is a wee bit longer than our verses from the past several years – but it is powerful:
For this very reason, make every effort to add to your faith goodness; and to goodness, knowledge; 6 and to knowledge, self-control; and to self-control, perseverance; and to perseverance, godliness; 7 and to godliness, mutual affection; and to mutual affection, love. 8 For if you possess these qualities in increasing measure, they will keep you from being ineffective and unproductive in your knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ. 2 Peter 1:5-8
Think about it – what would your life look like if you started on January 1 by asking the Lord to add to your faith:
- MUTUAL AFFECTION
My guess is that if we set that as our goal for next year, God not only going to do something extraordinary in YOUR life – but it could impact your family, your job/ministry, your church, our world. Wow.
A new year is a good time to begin new habits, and we have two brand new tools for this year. 2020 Bible Reading Plan (https://americaskeswick.org/resources/2020-daily-bible-reading-plan/) This year’s plan is a little different in that our readings will be Monday-Friday. This will give you the weekend “off” or use the weekend to catch up. You can download the plan by using the link, or you can email me for a hard copy (firstname.lastname@example.org). We’d be happy to provide copies for your small group or even your church. Just let us know.
Real Victory for Real Life 3 is our brand new 365 daily devotional. This volume is filled with encouragement from the Word from your favorite America’s Keswick speakers, concert artists, Board members, staff, and yes, our regular Freedom Fighter bloggers. You can call 800-453-7942 to order your copy ($15.00). It will also be available from smile.amazon.com in hard copy and Kindle.
We hope that gets you excited about the year ahead, and there’s lots more to come. Again, I want to personally thank you for joining me on the journey. Have a blessed Thanksgiving.

This Week’s Verse to Memorize: The heart is deceitful above all things, and desperately wicked; who can know it? I, the Lord, search the heart, I test the mind, even to give every man according to his ways, according to the fruit of his doings. ~Jeremiah 17:9-10
