If you’re feeling confused about your standing with God after a sermon, there is a good chance you have not heard a gospel sermon (what has been done for you), but a sermon principally based on what you must do. This is a law-based sermon.


Love and Convictions

How in the world can Christians love one another when we don’t agree on anything but Jesus, don’t think the same way, don’t look alike, or don’t share a common cultural and political understanding of the way things ought to be? And then how can we love one another without selling out our convictions?

Love for Losers

There’s nothing seemingly rational about the way in which God shows affection to his creation. When we talk about love, we attach all of these catches, just to make sure nobody that doesn’t deserve loves accidentally gets some splashed on them. But, God, he turns the bucket completely over.

Getting Jesus Wrong - FREE Chapter!

Want to have some fun? Read Matt Johnson’s new book (just out), ‘Getting Jesus Wrong: Giving Up Spiritual Vitamins and Checklist Christianity.’ I know, our Christian reading ought to be serious, thoughtful and godly. It’s not supposed to be fun. I don’t care. This book is fun, freeing and joyful. The subject in Matt’s book is serious, the insights profound, and the message so valuable…but it’s fun too.

There is nothing we can ever do that will cause God to say, “I’ve had it with you.” He will never let us go. But if our salvation is already covered, then why are we still here? Why doesn’t God just take us Home to heaven right now?  Join Steve as he looks at 1 Corinthians 9:12-23 to see that we’re not here for us. We’re here for them.

Life Without the Kicker

Some seriously misguided Christians once called a Jewish friend of mine a “Christ killer.” When I told him how very sorry I was for what they had said and how he had been hurt, he didn’t say anything for a minute. He was waiting for me to continue. Then my friend said something that really surprised me, “Steve, I want to thank you for what you said; but more than that, I want to thank you that there was no kicker.”
