    He replied, “One of you who has just eaten from this bowl with me will betray me. 24 For the Son of Man must die, as the Scriptures declared long ago. But how terrible it will be for the one who betrays him. It would be far better for that man if he had never been born!”25 Judas, the […]

    Are you Ready?

    By Caitlin West A few weeks ago, while serving in the remote Northern Ontario community of North Caribou Lake First Nation, my team was asked to sing during the church service. As we approached the stage ready to sing, the pastor turned to us and in broken English said “Testimonies.” Testimonies? After some translation by […]

    When Leadership Hurts

    By Laura Wallar At LIFT Church we are big on the idea that at the core of leadership is a heart of service. It’s an idea we got from Jesus and it is rooted in our desire to live and serve as he did. Often, when I think of Jesus’ ministry I remember the dramatic […]

    4 Dimensions of Baptism + 3 Objections

    Several times as year we celebrate baptism as a church. The question is “why?” Here are 4 dimensions to baptism and 3 objections! RECOGNITION: Did you know that in Christ you are a new creation!?

    Five or Less: Three Days Out

    Many people know the story of Jesus healing the blind man by spitting in the mud and rubbing it on his eyes. It’s a strange thing because you’re thinking… “why spit?” Yesterday we read about Jesus healing blind Bartimaeus just by granting him healing. Just saying it. In the gospel of Mark Chapter 8, we […]

    Five or Less: Four Days out

    One of my favourite passages of scripture can be found in Luke 18:35-42 35 As Jesus approached Jericho, a blind beggar was sitting beside the road. 36 When he heard the noise of a crowd going past, he asked what was happening. 37 They told him that Jesus the Nazarene[f] was going by. 38 So […]

    Five or Less : A Devotional Countdown to LIFT Conf

    Hey Church, This is going to take 5 minutes (or less)  to read. I hope that as we head into what is set to be yet another incredible year in the life of our church, that you are filled with a sense of expectancy and excitement. Even more so I hope that as conference is […]

    This is not the end

    In the last 3 weeks we have expressed the love of Jesus to tens of thousands of people. Love in a pancake, pack of gum, cup of water, backpack of supplies or phone call of invitation. Late nights and early mornings, planning and preparation, effort and energy and probably a little blood and tears. God […]

    Day 49 – The 75 Day Journey

    Hey Church – How has Your 75 day journey been going so far? We left off in Acts chapter 7, and hopefully, you have been taking ownership of this journey, and you were able to relish in the incredible history of the global church that is the book of Acts. We are now into the […]

    Day 27 – The 75 Day Journey

    Acts 7 Today we pick up the story exactly where it left off yesterday. Stephen, the newly appointed leader of the local food back, has been arrested and brought before the court to explain himself. He had been accused of blasphemy. As he responds, you can almost see the collective nodding as Stephen outlines Israelite […]
