Only Good News

Do you feel guilty? What about ashamed and down? I’ve got some good news from Romans 8:31-39 for you. It’s all good news…and only good news.
Steve’s Devotional - How to Believe
Monday June 19, 2017steve'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.
God Loves You…So Come Home
Wednesday June 14, 2017christian life •
We all identify with the story of the prodigal son. It’s about repentance, sin and return. As Christians, it applies to us. We aren’t excused. We can’t separate ourselves from sin.
Steve’s Devotional - Never Work for God
Monday June 12, 2017steve's devotional •
My friend Bruce once said that we should never “work for God.” That sounds like heresy until you hear his explanation: “Stay his child. Working for God always has and always will stink. Being God’s son or daughter and enjoying the privileges of adoption is a blessing of unimagined proportions. Satan’s goal in your life is to have you get from son/heir to day laborer. Don’t make the trade.”

Steve’s Devotional - What is Your Storm?
Monday June 5, 2017steve's devotional •
What is your storm? Maybe it’s a struggle with cancer, a broken marriage or a painful loss. In Matthew 14, Jesus’ disciples were in a tough storm of their own—scared and unsure.
Big on Church

It’s a miracle the church is still here. If you don’t like misunderstanding, bad communication, sin, anger and confusion, join a service club and stay away from the church.
Steve’s Devotional - Why We Don’t Pray
Monday May 29, 2017steve's devotional •
Listen to what Jesus says about prayer: “Whatever you ask in my name, I will do it, that the Father may be glorified in the Son; if you ask anything in my name, I will do it” (John 14:13-14). That is a pretty fantastic statement. If it is true then the most awesome power in the world is prayer power. How do we tap into that power? How do we pray properly?
