Hi Gary,By God's grace I am called by the Lord to be a Pastor. I was ordained by a ministry director in 2005. I felt God's tugging to ministry in 2002/2003 and in a continual seeking of the Lord's will for my life whereupon I felt I received a go ahead from the Lord to go full time into ministry in 2004. This means I do not have a full-time secular job or even a full-time part-time job. I focus on Jesus and go where He leads me.I am free to travel cause if He sends me, He provides. I would like to teach others how this passion for our Lord works, but the Holy Spirit is the real teacher. Any person who claims Christianity or more accurately and emphatically, perhaps radically is not too strong a word, that claims to be a disciple of Christ Jesus that has not yet denied himself is still lacking in the abundant life that Jesus promised in John 10:10b. The scriptures that support this view of bearing our Cross and denying ourselves are in part Matthew 10:38,39, Matt. 16:24,25, Luke 9:23,24 and a calling to let ourselves be crucified with Christ as shown in Galatians 2:20 if we are inclined to follow Apostle Pauls example. Neverthe less this attitude does not add works to Grace for Salvation. This attitude comes by Grace through the working power of the Holy Spirit.

Hi Kyle, I knew there were a lot of denominations, but 38,000, I had no idea it was that high. Well, we see the problem then but how about solutions? What would happen if the group or denomination you fellowship with took one of their meeting times and all the people who came that day went to another fellowship place, church , gathering?Have you ever heard of that happening? Lets say 50 people came from Group A and went to Group B's fellowship. Then one of the leaders of Group A invited Group B to come fellowship and worship God with them the next week or in two weeks? Why do we not do that? I challenge you to challenge your Pastor or Bible study leader or small group leader or youth group to do that for the sake of making progress into the answer of Jesus prayer in John 17. Would you take the challenge?
Hi this is Stephen Hope, also known as PastorReachOut.I just want to tell my family in Victoria that I love them.We all love Jesus Christ and His Father in Heaven, the Majesty.Let's get reconciled to God by getting reconciled to each other.You have shut me out too long. If we both love God we must love each other. that is scriptural. I never turned my back on God.Yahweh loves us all and if we say we love him, we must also love our brother. We are brothers and sisters in Christ. That is God's arrangement. dont get sidetracked by religious beliefs. Love you all, please contact me soon. I have a lot of nieces and nephews and cousins and second cousins to show love to. I havent seen since they were young. My cell number is 281-546-6549. If you do not want me to tell one of the other family that you are talking to me then I wont. please do not let fear stop you from calling though. All my love. Stephen Hope (PastorReachOut)
Am I willing to pick up my Cross and follow Jesus? Matt. 10:38The Kingdom of God is at hand. Romans 10:9-10 urges me to confess Jesus as My Lord.
