To Live Is Christ, to Die Is Gain
When Steve faced death with little hope, he began to read Ezekiel, Daniel, and Revelation as travel brochures and it made him excited for heaven. As a cancer patient he would read Philippians 1:22 in two sections. The first was the good, the second the bad. GOOD: Living for Christ. He wanted to live. Then there was the BAD: to die… he didn’t want to go there. But then he finally realized that it wasn’t bad at all. In fact, it was full of hope. If we are living for Christ, one day, to die will be gain—we will see Jesus face to face! Listen to this encouraging message given at Calvary Chapel Santa Fe Springs, California.
Psalm 23, The Lord Is My Shepherd
Psalm 23 is probably one of the most quoted chapters in the entire Bible. It is quoted at funerals and at the bedsides of those who are going through the darkest of times in their lives. This psalm has brought comfort to many as they try to find meaning in their difficulties. The psalm is a journey. It is about a Shepherd who leads his flock from green pastures through the valley of the shadow of death to the house of the Lord forever. Listen as Steve gives a message of comfort and hope at The Anchor, Calvary Chapel San Pedro. It may just be time for you to begin your journey with the Good Shepherd.
Powerful, Passionate, Prayer
What can be accomplished in prayer? Lots of things. We have to keep in mind that whenever we ask for things that we might think are impossible, we are still asking beneath the power of God to accomplish it. Does that make sense to you? That the greatest thing that we can ever ask for is barely touching the power of God to accomplish it. Listen to this message of hope as Steve teaches from James 5:6.
Future and Hope
Your Sins Are Forgiven
Jesus is teaching to a crowded house in Mark, chapter two, in the seaside town of Capernaum. Four friends carry their paralyzed buddy on a mat to see Jesus. When they can not get in the front door they go in through the roof! The man in the mat is lowered and something amazing happens! Find out more in this message by pastor Steve, given at Calvary Chapel Santa Fe Springs, California.
The Way of Intimacy
A message delivered at Calvary Chapel Parker, in Parker Colorado in 2016. At this point Steve’s doctors had said that there were no visible signs of cancer. He was this way for 2 years. Currently he has four sizable tumors in his lungs. (2 in each lung). He is still fighting and this message is still very relevant. Enjoy.
