In the Living Hope Church Check-Up report presented by Pastor Paul yesterday, we found that one of Living Hope's weak areas is Compassion and Outreach to those who do not yet know Jesus. We would like to share a tangible way that you can be a part of helping those who are in need in our community....
I wrote this spoken word titled “Broken” after spending some time fasting during the season of Lent. I have been reading through a book where the author describes sin as a “brokenness” that needs to be repaired. I pray that this form of art would stir your affections for Christ!...
Different treasures battle for my heart every day. There is a war raging for the throne of my heart. Most days I treasure my own selfish desires more than treasuring Christ. I’m in desperate daily need of the Holy Spirit to continually redirect my heart toward Christ. I want Him to be my ultimate treasure more and more on a daily basis....
This week has been a difficult week. I have felt the influence of the evil one; whispering lies, convincing me that I am not good enough. Telling me that my past sin is too much for Jesus to overcome. Weighing me down with guilt and shame. ‘Why would God want to dwell with you?’...
Many have commented on the beautiful prayer that was read in the Worship Gathering on November 27th. The prayer is an excerpt from the final section of St. Patrick's Breastplate, also known as The Lorica of St. Patrick. The Lorica is a prayer attributed to one of Ireland's most beloved patron saints....
When we awake in the morning we bustle about living our everyday life: Eat. Learn. Work. Play. Repeat. But what do we do when these things don’t deliver? What do we do when our living isn’t producing hope? When our working results in frustration? When our playing proves boring?...

Read: Mark 10:46-42 In Lesson 2, we looked at the faith of Bartimaeus that made him well. Today, we read the same narrative, but will consider the times in which we doubt God’s ability or willingness to heal us. Seasons of doubt fall upon many who follow Jesus. In fact, some of the great men of faith in the New Testament experienced seasons of doubt. John the Baptis...Keep Reading
Read: Mark 10:46-42 While in Jericho, Jesus and His disciples were among a great crowd of people. Amongst the throng was a seemingly insignificant, blind beggar by the name of Bartimaeus. When Bartimeaus got word that Jesus was approaching, he cried out, “Jesus, Son of David, have mercy on me!” When the crowds discouraged his cries, he called out all the more,...Keep Reading
Read: Mark 10:42-45 In this week’s devotionals, we will be looking at the narrative of Jesus healing the blind beggar, Bartimaeus. But before we step into that passage, we should note the text prior to this narrative in which Jesus speaks to His disciples about the ‘upside-down’ economy of the Kingdom of God. In the world, those who have the most power a...Keep Reading
As we seek Jesus during Lent, how might God be challenging us with our hearts as we “seek Him?” Are we seeking Jesus for His usefulness, or to be with Him?...Keep Reading

We live in a busy society. It seems that this reality is not changing any time soon. Therefore, how can we navigate through these waters in light of what it means to worship God together as a family? ...Keep Reading
Orlando should remind us to pray, counsel, spread hope, and teach and train our kids how to process events like these in a way that displays hope in Christ....Keep Reading
Let’s face it: teenagers are difficult. Hormonal changes, fads, trends, shifting friend groups; all of these things can drive you to your knees as a parent! As a student ministries pastor, I have dozens of conversations with parents about engaging their teenager on a spiritual level....Keep Reading
All of the gospels record for us an interaction that is often overlooked in the passion narrative. It takes place between Jesus, Pilate, and a man named Barabbas. We do not know much about this Barabbas except for what Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John tell us. We do know that he was a notorious prisoner (Matt. 27:16), a rebel (Mk. 15:7), a murderer (Lk. 23:25), and a robber (...Keep Reading
