Don’t Waste Your Sin – Sunday Share from Steve Brown

Dear fellow travelers,

Today’s “Sunday Share” comes from Steve Brown, founder of Key Life Network.  In the article shared below Steve writes about how “since your sin is already paid for, why not own it and use it?  The apostle Peter is our model here (and he’s a good one). We love Peter, not because he’s so good, but because he’s so human and sinful.”

Religion that is pure and undefiled before God the Father is this: to visit orphans and widows in their affliction, and to keep oneself unstained from the world.” – James 1:17

My biggest struggle with daily devotions is not carving out the 20 to 30 minutes needed to read the word and spend time with God. The most difficult part is slowing down my heart and mind enough to get anything from it. Here is the challenge. I usually wake up to an endless list of tasks […]
