By: Steve Brown on Monday November 23, 2015 How do you believe? If you struggle with unbelief and doubt, it’s important to take a closer look in order to understand it. In fact, it’s of eternal importance. What is the nature of unbelief? And what are the consequences of unbelief? Unbelief is often the result of unbelief. “But although He had done so many signs before them, they did not believe in Him, that the word of Isaiah the prophet might be fulfilled, which he spoke: ‘Lord, who has believed our report? And to whom has the arm of the Lord been revealed?’ Therefore theyRead More →

By: Steve Brown on Monday November 16, 2015 A lot happened in the past that affects both our present and future. The incarnation of God in Christ happened in the past. And now, because he came, we never have to feel that God doesn’t care. People asked if there was a God and, if there was, what he was like. A monster? A child abuser? A God with lightning bolts aimed at the people who get out of line? Does he love? Does he love me? Then the laughter of God spilled over into a sour, bent and dark world. We knew, because he came,Read More →

By: Steve Brown on Monday November 9, 2015 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). I don’t know about you, but that frustrates me. We’ve tried so often and failed so miserably. There isn’t a Christian alive who doesn’tRead More →

By: Steve Brown on Monday October 19, 2015 We’re living in the between time…and we aren’t Home yet. Life is hard. How do we survive? How can we be joyous in a bad world? In Numbers 10, the people of God blew trumpets in the wilderness. That’s almost impossible to believe. Let me paint you a picture… They were nomads living in tents out in the wilderness for 40 long years (40 years to make an 11 day trip). All they had to eat was manna soup, manna casserole and manna omelets mixed with quail. The people of God had absolutely nothing–no gold or silver–andRead More →

By: Steve Brown on Monday October 12, 2015 It’s time for the good news. The Scripture says, “For while we were still helpless, at the right time Christ died for the ungodly [that’s everybody]. For one will hardly die for a righteous man; though perhaps for the good man someone would dare even to die. But God demonstrates His own love toward us, in that while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us” (Romans 5:6-8). Most of us have a superficial view of forgiveness. Forgiveness is a simple thing, right? Wrong. Forgiveness is very difficult because whenever anyone is forgiven, someone gets hurt. ThinkRead More →

By Steve Brown Do you sometimes grow tired of religious people? Do you ever want to just grunt, scream and spit? I know I do. Sometimes I just want to say something shocking. And once that’s done, I’ll think, There, I did it and I’m glad! I try to stifle those feelings because, of course, no real Christian would even think such things. That is what I thought until I read Christ’s words in Matthew 6:1-8 and 16-18. “Beware of practicing your righteousness before other people in order to be seen by them, for then you will have no reward from your Father who isRead More →
