Steve’s Devotional - How to Believe

Monday October 17, 2016

steve's devotional

If you are a skeptic or have ever been one, then, chances are, you have had the experience of going to a Christian, asking about his or her faith, only to receive a “You just believe, that’s all” in response. I don’t know about you, but I remember feeling frustrated by that. I already know the problem. What I need is a solution.

Freedom has the power to take away, destroy, break down, and frighten. And it is this very power that we fear. While this may seem a bit harsh, please know that I’m not preaching.

Open Door Policy

Wednesday September 28, 2016

christian life

I have an “open door” policy at Key Life but with a closed door. There’s a lot of noise in our office (we are, after all, a media ministry), a lot of laughter (you can always tell Jesus is present when there’s laughter) and a lot of music.

We’re Never Alone in the Dark

There are times when everything looks bleak and it’s sort of like looking through dark glasses. It passes but, while I’m there, the “dark clouds” in my sky seem to be a very present reality.
