Pastor Clark and Pastor Tim believe that God uses the preaching of His Word to call His people to repentance, renewal and rejoicing. We believe the Scriptures are essential to the life of Living Hope so expository preaching has a central place in our corporate worship. The authority of preaching is found in authoritative Word of God. We believe that God uses the systematic preaching through various books of the Bible to establish and extend His authority. Our pastors strive by God’s grace to prepare their sermons prayerfully and diligently seeking to bring the grammatical historical truths of the texts to the attention of the listeners in a practical, relevant way. The sermons are posted here to be used as appropriate: catch a sermon that was missed, as a mid-week review, or to pass along to others in order to encourage them. May God richly bless His Word to the heart of the hearer!

The Savior Who Prays for You ~ John 17:6-19Tim Flora,
2017 December 10
Part of the Gospel of John series.
6I have manifested thy name unto the men which thou gavest me out of the world: thine they were, and thou gavest them me; and they have kept thy word. 7Now they have known that all things whatsoever thou hast given me are of thee. 8For I have given unto them the words which thou gavest me; and they have received them, and have known surely that I came out from thee, and they have believed that thou didst send me. 9I pray for them: I pray not for the world, but for them which thou hast given me; for they are thine. 10And all mine are thine, and thine are mine; and I am glorified in them. 11And now I am no more in the world, but these are in the world, and I come to thee. Holy Father, keep through thine own name those whom thou hast given me, that they may be one, as we are. 12While I was with them in the world, I kept them in thy name: those that thou gavest me I have kept, and none of them is lost, but the son of perdition; that the scripture might be fulfilled. 13And now come I to thee; and these things I speak in the world, that they might have my joy fulfilled in themselves. 14I have given them thy word; and the world hath hated them, because they are not of the world, even as I am not of the world. 15I pray not that thou shouldest take them out of the world, but that thou shouldest keep them from the evil. 16They are not of the world, even as I am not of the world. 17Sanctify them through thy truth: thy word is truth. 18As thou hast sent me into the world, even so have I also sent them into the world. 19And for their sakes I sanctify myself, that they also might be sanctified through the truth. (KJV)
