What does the Bible say about joy? There is a difference between happiness and joy.
Steve’s Devotional - Obedient for the Wrong Reasons
Monday February 19, 2018steve's devotional •
I suspect you’ve probably tried to follow Jesus’ example for most of your Christian life with little success. After all, you aren’t Jesus and you can’t be expected to do what Jesus did. Right? Wrong. Jesus said, “Truly, truly, I say to you, he who believes in Me, the works that I do shall he do also; and greater works than these shall he do; because I go to the Father” (John 14:12).

A Christian philosophy of boldness should include the believer’s rights. In fact, it would be incomplete without a list of believer’s rights. I used to teach that a believer has no rights…I was wrong. Now a Christian may or may not choose to turn over his or her rights…but don’t tell me that a Christian has no rights. It simply isn’t true. So what are your rights as a believer?
Jesus Still Weeps
Wednesday January 31, 2018incarnation • jesus • salvation •
What kind of God do you believe in? God as Creator and Sustainer of the universe. God as source of value and meaning. God as helper of the weak. God as Judge. While those images of God are all true, they are not complete. God is also One who weeps, whose sorrow is eternal.
Don’t Waste Your Sin

I’m tired of people constantly urging me to change the world, make a difference and prove my life counts.
