Encouraging Bible Verses for Communicators

Encouraging Bible Verses for Communicators

April 16, 2015 by

In last week’s #cmschat on Twitter we talked about self care after Easter. Our host Steve Fogg asked how we’re caring for ourselves spiritually and then asked for “a Scripture that recharges our soul.”

Lots of people chimed in with Bible verses that encouraged and inspired them in the midst of the challenges of preparing for Easter. So we collected those inspiring Bible verses in one place. Maybe one will jump out and recharge your soul today:

  • “Make a careful exploration of who you are and the work you have been given, and then sink yourself into that. Don’t be impressed with yourself. Don’t compare yourself with others. Each of you must take responsibility for doing the creative best you can with your own life.” -Galatians 6:4-5, The Message (Shayla Kenworthy)
  • “For if you remain silent at this time, relief and deliverance for the Jews will arise from another place, but you and your father’s family will perish. And who knows but that you have come to your royal position for such a time as this?” -Esther 4:14, NIV (Mark David Johnson)
  • “Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For my yoke is easy and my burden is light.” -Matthew 11:28-30, NIV (Steve Fogg)
  • “’For I know the plans I have for you,’ declares the Lord, ‘plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.’” -Jeremiah 29:11, NIV (Ta Quinda Marie)
  • “This is what the LORD says to Israel: ‘Seek me and live.’” -Amos 5:4, NIV (Emily Bedwell)
  • “As you enter the house of God, keep your ears open and your mouth shut. It is evil to make mindless offerings to God. Don’t make rash promises, and don’t be hasty in bringing matters before God. After all, God is in heaven, and you are here on earth. So let your words be few. Too much activity gives you restless dreams; too many words make you a fool.” -Ecclesiastes 5:1-3, NLT (Neal Fischer)
  • “Jesus got up, rebuked the wind and said to the waves, ‘Quiet! Be still!’ Then the wind died down and it was completely calm.” -Mark 4:39, NIV (Tim Sheare)
  • “Your love has given me great joy and encouragement, because you, brother, have refreshed the hearts of the Lord’s people.” -Philemon 1:7, NIV (Shayla Kenworthy)
  • “Oh, how abundant is your goodness,
which you have stored up for those who fear you
 and worked for those who take refuge in you, in the sight of the children of mankind!” -Psalm 31:19, ESV (Jared Callais)
  • “See, I am doing a new thing! 
Now it springs up; do you not perceive it? 
I am making a way in the wilderness
 and streams in the wasteland.” -Isaiah 43:19, NIV (Anthony Stone)
  • “I’m asking God for one thing, only one thing: To live with him in his house my whole life long.” -Psalm 27:4, The Message (Gin Hannen)

Church communication can be hard, especially before and after our biggest days of the year. Take care of yourself and don’t forget to stay rooted in the message we’re trying to communicate.

We hope you find the encouragement, restoration and care your soul needs for the work you do. And don’t forget to join us for the #cmschat, every Thursday at 9 p.m. ET.


We do important work—sharing the gospel—but that doesn’t mean we can work ourselves to death. Learn more about how to fight church communicator burnout.
