    Garden to Garden: Find the Right Kind of Willpower

    Garden to Garden: Find the Right Kind of Willpower

    Genesis 3:1-15

    As humans we tend to have an attitude of “my will be done.” The devil’s oldest trick in the book was getting mankind to put their own will above God’s will. In the Garden of Eden, the devil made Adam and Eve believe that God was holding them back and didn’t have their best interests at heart. It was a lie, and now sin and death would have an icy grip on every human heart.

    But God clearly does have our best interests at heart. He sends Jesus to undo the devil’s work and bring mankind back to him. And in a different Garden, Gethsemane, Jesus has the willpower to say to his Father, “your will be done.” And what is God’s will? His will is to save sinners like you and me.

    Lamb to Lamb: The Price for the Passover

    Lamb to Lamb: The Price for the Passover

    Exodus 12:1-14

    One meal in the Old Testament defined the people of Israel as God’s own. This meal was the Passover. By the blood of a lamb covering their doorposts, the people of Israel had the wrath of God pass over them and strike the Egyptians so that they could finally be free from slavery.

    That first Passover is a shadow of the true Passover Lamb who sets us free from slavery to sin and death. Jesus is the Lamb of God who takes away the sins of the world and causes God’s wrath against sin to pass us by. This was the defining moment of salvation for you and me.

    Mountain to Mountain: Encouragement for the Highs, Lows, and Everything in Between

    Mountain to Mountain: Encouragement for the Highs, Lows, and Everything in Between

    Mark 9:2-9

    Life is a roller coaster. There's ups and downs. High points and low points. Twists and turns. But Jesus' transfiguration teaches us that he is with us through it all. Encouraging us with his glorious power and his tender mercy. With Jesus, there's encouragement to walk any road.

    Hope for Your Everyday

    Hope for Your Everyday

    1 Peter 1:3-9

    People are wired to be hopeful. We’ll cling to even the most irrational kinds of hope sometimes. If our sports team is down by 30 points we’ll still hold out hope that they can make a comeback. We’re wired to be hopeful.

    But sometimes when the struggle is sustained and the sufferings have no end in sight we feel our “hope-tanks” run dry. We need something concrete to put our hope in, something that won’t let us down.

    God gives us a living hope that’s built on someone who won’t ever let us down. Our living hope is Jesus, our resurrected Savior. He gives us hope for eternal life and hope for our everyday life.

    Comforted to Be a Comforter

    Comforted to Be a Comforter

    2 Corinthians 1:3-7

    The vision for the culture here at Living Hope is that we’re all about real people giving real hope to real people. The hope and comfort that God gives to us equips us to give comfort and hope to our neighbor.

    Since we’ve been given such great comfort from the God of all comfort, we let that comfort overflow to others. We direct people to the source of our comfort, the gospel of Jesus, so that they too can share in the comfort we’ve received.

    Try On Other People's Shoes

    Try On Other People's Shoes

    1 Corinthians 9:19-23

    To reach people with the gospel message we put ourselves into their shoes and meet them where they’re at.

    Outreach, in the end, is pretty simple. It’s all about putting the gospel of Jesus first and putting others first.
