Pastor Kyu Kim tells us the importance of praying and being with God for 40 days and nights. Moses, Elijah, and Jesus all spent 40 days and nights with God and in that time God revealed himself to them and rewarded them with the Holy Spirit.
Scripture: Exodus 34:28-29, 1 Kings 19:7-8, 19:15-21, Luke 4:1-2, 4:14-15
Pastor Mimi Kim asks us to examine our lives: are we living the new life in Jesus? Just as we bathe and wash away all filth before putting on clean clothes, so should we be renewed by the Holy Spirit to throw off the old ways and live in purity.
Pastor Kyu Kim tells us to grow up! For Christians this means being transformed by God: in our thoughts, desires, and actions. Let us therefore continue to work out our salvation and pray for God's work in us.
Pastor Sunhee Robinson urges us to not give up and to hold our positions against the enemy. As we mature we learn to fight not just for our own breakthroughs but for the breakthroughs of our brothers and sisters. Let us not be discouraged, for setbacks can be God’s set up for something amazing.
Sunhee is a pastor at Living Hope Christian Center in Emeryville, California.
Pastor Mimi Kim shares the word God gave her for HOPE Church: shore up. Like the man who built his house on solid rock, we must build our faith on the Bible. Let us ready, study, and memorize the Word so that we can be prepared for obstacles, challenges, and storms ahead. The time to build up our faith is now, not in time of difficulty!

Pastor David Singh shared on how the anointing of God works through leadership, in light of the ordination and installation of our ministry leaders. Throughout the history of God’s people, the call to leadership has never been divorced from the laying of the hands and the transfer of the Holy Spirit. Even Jesus, who was God in the flesh, was first anointed by the Holy Spirit before beginning His ministry, setting the example for us in what it means to be a leader. From Genesis to Revelation, we see an evolution of the Spirit: exclusive to a select few to being poured out on ALL flesh, and this is the demonstration of the promise of God to all who are called His sons and daughters. Since Eden, God has been at work restore complete access to His presence, so that He would dwell among us, we would be His people and He would be our God.
J. David Singh is the senior pastor at Eternity Church in Richmond, Virginia.
Pastor Kyu Kim asks how we can have a relationship with God if we do not communicate with Him. As a church that desires intimacy with God, we should hear His voice and turn to God with full trust and obedience. Let us cast off the fear that hinders and walk through the open door according to His will.
