Some people have voices that make you lean forward, soak up every word, and want to listen to for hours. Dr. Steve Brown has that voice. And he not only has a compelling voice, the words he speaks are real and raw and true. He speaks truth in an approachable way. His authentic honesty draws you in and points you straight to the real Jesus.
Dr. Brown came to our church this past Friday and spoke on "Endless Grace for Dead-End Religion." He looked at Matthew 23 and Luke 19 and how Jesus wept over the city. He explained today "what we are missing is the tears....Jesus showed mercy with tears." Tears are extremely powerful. Whether in our relationship with God or with others, tears bring humility and vulnerability, compassion and empathy, grace and mercy. Tears unite in a world that continually tries to tear apart.
The stories Dr. Brown tells, way he speaks, and message he has will make you fall in love with Jesus. His talk will remind you of the kindness of Jesus, the compassion of Jesus, the love of Jesus. You will be showered with grace as you listen. The talk is up on the Immanuel Nashville podcast now, and I'm sharing it because it's a must listen. It is beautiful. And if you're anything like me, your heart will be happy after listening to it.
