One of the great things about the Bible is that it allows us to see people the way they really are. Moses made it bush by bush. Peter, James, John, Paul and Timothy made it the same way—bush-by-bush, sin-by-sin, doctrine-by-doctrine, step-by-step.
Steve’s Devotional - When the Fire is Hot
Monday January 15, 2018steve's devotional •

Steve’s Devotional - We Live in Two Worlds
Monday January 8, 2018steve's devotional •

I know, I know. I don’t want to talk about money either. Still, it’s the end of the year, bills need to be paid, this is an expensive ministry, we’re doing good work, we’re honest, a lot of lives are changing and a lot of people are getting free. So please help share the message of God’s radical grace. Just click the “Donate” button at the top right of the page for all your giving options.
