Each week, Brent tries to post a Biblical, Gospel-centered devotional to encourage godly living, inspire deeper thinking, and to help us to see the Bible in a fresh way. Devotionals can help us understand the truths of the Bible in a deeper way; they can help enlighten our understanding of what certain passages, books, or accounts from the Bible mean. Devotionals rooted in Scripture can help unpack the Word and help us apply the Bible in a personal way.
Pastor Brent says he will always fear God more than man, so don’t be surprised if he addresses issues that sting or even cut you to the core. But one thing is certain, his devotional posts will always be rooted in Scripture.
