header-keri-1410am-1200Each Saturday morning beginning at 7:00am, His Way Out Ministries is offering a 30-minute broadcast dedicated to equipping, educating and encouraging the Body of Christ to reach out and minister to individuals, families, and churches impacted by the brokenness of same-sex attraction.

Our thirteenth broadcast is titled “How Do We Love Them Like Jesus?” The Gospel of John is clear in its description of Jesus. Jesus was 100% grace and 100% truth. He never erred on one side or the other. If we are truly to represent Christ’s heart and mind to the sexually broken, we must be equally balanced in those two critical areas as well.

Our twelfth broadcast is titled “Letting Go”. As Christians, a huge challenge is giving our loved one over to the Lord. If our prayers go something like, “God, do this,” or “God, don’t allow this,” our prayers need to become, “Lord, I ask you to bring my loved one to You in any way You choose.” Letting go goes against our very nature. However, if we want God to work in the situation, we must let Him do it His way.

Every person knows or will know at least one individual infected by HIV/AIDS. That means every church in the United States and around the world will come face-to-face with the on-going tragedy. It has been said, “Give me one good reason why I should care?” With regard to the HIV/AIDS pandemic, there are millions of reasons to care.

red-ribbon-200In my personal travels to churches of all denominations, when I share where we remain in the global crisis with regard to HIV/AIDS, those in attendance are shocked to hear present day facts. I, for one, will continue to hope and pray that Christians will play a more vital role in turning back the tide of this pandemic. I truly believe, in this moment, God has called us to respond. God has given us Biblical principles to halt HIV infections and to bring hope to those whose lives have been devastated by this deadly disease. The Church can be a powerful tool in preventing the spread of HIV/AIDS and ministering hope to those infected.

When I meet people with HIV/AIDS, it doesn’t matter to me how they got it. All that matters is that they are human beings whom God loves so much and asks us to love too. Ultimately, we must talk about HIV/AIDS. Why? Because this is about people and not just an issue. In the name of decency, true compassion, humanity and the sanctity of life (all life), the truth cannot and must not be ignored or suppressed with what continues to unfold regarding HIV/AIDS. Peoples’ lives are not made better physically, psychologically, spiritually or socially as a result of ignoring or unwillingness to talk about a real, true crisis of our time.

HIV/AIDS is a disease that impacts real people and their loved ones who must learn to face this together because no one can face it alone. People facing HIV/AIDS do better when they know what to expect on the journey. They do best when they don’t have to find their way alone. The journey begins with “talking about it.”

Without fail, every individual and every family member I have ever met impacted by HIV/AIDS asks, “How do you get through this?” What they are really saying is, “I don’t know how I’m going to survive this.”

I pray that you will see “no one except Jesus” (Matthew 17:8), holding out His arms to assure you of His love and understanding. He alone can meet your needs, wipe away the tears, heal the wounds, comfort the hurts, and cleanse.

With HIV/AIDS comes the very real resolution of emotional issues such as anger, loneliness, guilt, humiliation and fear.

Are we, God’s people, not compelled to share His love with others? Personally, I can’t think of any group that needs to experience His love more than people infected with and affected by HIV/AIDS. Jesus would listen to them, laugh with them, and weep with them. He would always be with them. Their fathers and mothers might forsake them, but He would never do that.

While HIV/AIDS is seen by many as a disease of death, it can also teach how to really live. Indeed, God is bigger than all of life’s problems and troubles. He is bigger than AIDS.

I, for one, remain determined to continue raising visibility and openness about the disease as a way of reducing the stigma and calling the Church worldwide to a Christ-like response to the heartbreaking faces of AIDS. The need and the opportunity remains great for the Christian community to take the lead in responding to the HIV/AIDS crisis with conviction and compassion.

Christian, you are uniquely qualified to bear witness to the world that the One who defeated death offers us the principles and the power to defeat HIV/AIDS.

Today, there remains a world crying out for hope.

Jesus continues to call His Church worldwide to respond to the HIV/AIDS pandemic through a message of Christian hope and compassion. HIV/AIDS is not the end.

People facing HIV/AIDS do better when they know they don’t have to find their way alone.

Pastor Phillip Lee

phillip-lee5a-2016-600Soon enough all of the decorations will be gone. But while another Christmas Season will be gone, Christmas must never end. It must not because it is all about Jesus helping us to live at home and at work. If we refuse to lose sight of Him, we will walk with a new hope and a new joy and that will remind each and every one of us that Jesus Christ is alive and in this world.

There is no doubt that some of us will go away from this Christmas Season and land in some “Egypt” where our faith will be tested. Maybe it will be a great disappointment, a job we didn’t get, maybe it will be a love that is rejected, may be it will be sickness, some disease that will not go away. Or maybe, we will just find ourselves bored with the way life is. Life has its way of sometimes coming down hard on us to the point we begin to wonder, “Where is God anyway?”

That’s when we will need to remember Christmas. We’ll need to remember that Christmas tells us that where He is, is where we are also. We are not forgotten. We are not alone.

In the middle of difficult, trying moments, we will need to remember Bethlehem and that God has come. We must never, ever give up on that – we must never, ever lose hold of that. We must hold on to it with every ounce of faith we have in us because that is what will keep us going on and on. We must keep our eyes on Jesus and never lose heart.

Merry Christmas and a Blessed New Year to You and Yours!

For Ladies Only

It is our nature to isolate when we are struggling with the various trials in life. But we do not have to walk through them alone. Open the door to healing by sharing your experiences, strengths and hope and by becoming willing to accept God’s grace in solving life’s problems.

For Ladies Only, facilitated by Ginny Mitchell, is women supporting, praying, loving and caring for one another by being real and not hiding their feelings. For Ladies Only offers a safe environment to talk about real issues ladies have and are sometimes too ashamed or afraid to talk about. Come and receive biblical guidance, prayer and encouragement for your healing journey.

“You can do all things through Christ who strengthens you.” (Philippians 4:13)

For Ladies Only meets on the first Saturday of each month from 9:00am to 11:00am at His Way Out Ministries Office.

Our eleventh broadcast is titled “Now, It’s Personal!” Christians with gay-identified loved ones are often eager to share the Good News of Christ, but they wonder how they can do so without sounding judgmental. When someone you love is homosexual, you quickly become aware of your inability to face life’s challenges apart from the grace of God.

Our tenth broadcast is titled “Why I Cannot Accept the ‘Gay Christian’ Identity.” As Christians, our relationship with God through Christ is the cornerstone of our identity. Today, many are being told, “Accept yourself and follow your heart.” However, Jesus says, “Deny yourself and follow Me.”

Pastor Phillip Lee RHT02 flipToday, many have adopted the opinion that for any man or woman to be saved and healed from same-sex attraction, they must not have even a hint of a homosexual orientation. In other words, victory over temptation is not good enough.

Causes me to ask, “Is my right standing with God the Father determined by that which may sorely tempt or is it in the truth of Scripture which clearly states, “He who overcomes will, like them, be dressed in white, I will never blot out his name from the Book of Life, but will acknowledge his name before my Father and His angels. (Revelation 3:5)

To say to someone struggling with homosexuality that, “With God all things are possible,” (Matthew 19:26) is completely correct. However, to communicate that “He will” totally and completely eradicate your homosexual orientation is a bit presumptuous and altogether different.

Most people cannot even begin to imagine what an intense battle a Christian faces when sexual orientation and traditional Christian teachings against the practice of homosexuality collide. Too often, the anguish of the individual is not considered or appreciated by those that have never struggled with same-sex attraction.

That is exactly why the Christian community should be a safe haven for homosexual persons to be honest about their orientation thereby giving the Church a grand opportunity to encourage each other on to lifestyles that glorify Christ.

Isn’t that what Jesus would do?

Of course, as followers of Christ, the practice of homosexuality should never be encouraged or affirmed. However, when any man or woman has the courage and the integrity to disclose their battle with homosexuality, that in and of itself should never be taken lightly and viewed as an opportunity to share Christ’s love and acceptance for and to the individual.

The delicate balance, if not challenge, is our willingness to keep the lines of communication open and enter into the relationship without compromising truth or love. It means not backing down from the truth of Scripture and remaining dedicated to reaching men and women in a Christ-like way.

Since love is basic to Christianity, His love must be extended to all persons – including those that struggle with same-sex attraction. This, I am convinced, is exactly what Jesus would do.

Our ninth broadcast is titled “Homosexuality and the Church pt2.” Caution: Confrontation is not enough to change a heart. The heart, having been hardened through deception or rebellion or both, has to be softened. And that is the work of God alone. Ours is to speak God’s truth, trusting Him to make it alive in our hearers.
