Welcome to our online worship for Sunday, October 17th. We’re so happy you’ve chosen to worship with us either live at 10:30 a.m. or at a time of your later convenience. Our desires reveal a great deal about our spiritual condition. In the gospel lesson from Mark this morning, Jesus asks blind Bartimaeus, “What do you want me to do for you?” Immediately before this story, Jesus had asked James and John the same thing. One person answered well, it seems; the other did not. So there are desires that lead us down paths of holiness and desires that can lead us down paths of sin. In this message, Pastor Evan explores this idea and concludes that rather than try to eliminate the desires of our hearts, we should hand all our desires over to God so that God can use our desires to fuel the passions he places within our hearts.
