The question What do you do? is what our culture uses to define ourselves and other people—to determine Who are you? How valuable are you? Many of us see work as a key part of our identity. Our work makes us feel useful—or not, which is why many unemployed and retired people can fall into despair.

Steve’s Devotional – Love is Unnatural

By: Steve Brown on Monday April 27, 2015

steve's devotional

God makes a big deal out of love. In fact, our relationships with our brothers and sisters in Christ are marked by love. Love is so central to the biblical message you would think that, even if we got everything else wrong, we would at least get love right. If God talks so much about love… Why do we love so little? Why don’t you love? Why don’t I love?

God doesn’t need your love either, but the obsessive love of anything other than him can mess up your life… and he’d rather you didn’t. Join Steve as he teaches from 1 Timothy 6:6-10 about money, grace and the obsession with God’s love that will fill your life with contentment and freedom.

The institution of the church has always held within it scoundrels, egomaniacs, dishonest leaders and people who didn’t give a rip about real needs. That was true in the first century and will be true until Jesus returns. People aren’t called to be in the church because they are together, good or obedient…but because they aren’t.

Steve’s Devotional – The Cost of Getting Over Your Fear

By: Steve Brown on Monday April 20, 2015

steve's devotional

When you get right down to it, most people are not as interested in freedom as they are in security. Given the clear option between freedom (with its attendant responsibility and problems) and dictatorship (with its attendant structure and limits), most people pick dictatorship every time. Why? Because we want to be secure and safe, not free and responsible.
