Steve’s Devotional – Reason to Celebrate

Steve Brown Monday February 1, 2016 Have you ever read the book of Esther? The more I study it, the more I like it. One of the most interesting things about Esther is that it’s the only book in the Bible where the name of God is never mentioned…not even once. Not only that, there is no prayer, no reference […]
