On Quiet Time: Part II

From the perfect face beat to the most effective workout, YouTube seems to have a routine video for just about anything. In the four Gospels, we get a sneak peek into the life of Jesus who had a “habit of retiring to deserted places and praying” (Luke 5:16 ISV). Throughout July, we dissected the ingredients of ‘A Great Life’ at the Lifepointe Church and one thing is certain: a great life is steeped in God’s word and a relationship with Him. Jesus exemplified this perfectly and here we are trying to follow......

Hacks, Fears and Incentives: 4 People on How They Evangelize

If you’re like me, you’ve never seen someone “get saved” outside of the pastor-pulpit-altar call setting. During the Mission: Possible months of April and May at Lifepointe, it became quite clear to me that I didn’t need to be a pastor, didn’t need a pulpit, didn’t need a sermon followed by the most eloquent speech (or threat) to invite someone into this beautiful life with Jesus. If none of the sermons convinced me (and they sure did! Get your fix here, you’re welcome 😝) to live out the Great Commission in my......

Do you Want to be Made Whole?

us, all-knowing one who hears the groaning of our heart, knew deep down the man desired healing but felt defeated and hopeless. Who wouldn’t after suffering an affliction for so long! Guess what happened next? Without the waters being stirred, without being dipped in the pool, without the help of an Angel or man, Jesus by himself ALONE made the sick man whole. And to make it even more sensational, he did it on the oh-so-holy “Sabbath day”. You know back then Sabbath was regarded as a holy day and no “work”......
