Jesus Saves Gangsters, Too!

By: Min. Angela Lee Price

In John 21:15-17, Jesus asked Simon Peter three times, “Simon, son of John, do you love me?” Simon Peter was frustrated by the third time and said, “Lord, you know all things; you know that I love you.” Jesus said, "Feed my sheep.”

Loving Jesus Christ requires that we obey His Word, and feed His sheep by telling others about Him. This is what we strive to do at Jesus Saves Ministries, share the saving grace of Jesus Christ from an African American perspective.

I don't know where exactly in California the above picture was taken, Los Angeles, Hollywood, or another location, but Jesus saves gangsters in Louisville, too! He delivers, heals, and gives them a voice in the political process. Jesus Saves Ministries is helping restore voting rights to former felons through an advocacy program that enabled 11 former felons to vote in the 2008 historic presidential election, many where able to cast votes for the first time in their lives through this initiative.
Additionally, Jesus Saves Ministries is helping former felons get their criminal records expunged. By the power of Jesus Christ, more past offenders are turning their lives around and serving faithfully in their churches as ushers, deacons, staff and ministry leaders. Check out the February 2nd post entitled, Miracle On the Ohio for more our voting rights advocacy initiative.

Consider partnering with or supporting Jesus Saves Ministries with your prayers and financial contributions as we strive to continue these and other initiatives. E-mail me at

It is not Mohammad, Buddha, Confucius, nor New Age that saves. Jesus saves!

LISTEN: Bishop Paul Morton Says as a 'Father' I Rebuke Bishop Eddie Long - BCNN1

I have purposely not posted much on this situation, however I listened to this audio clip from Bishop Paul Morton's Father's Day message entitled Successful Sin" and I think it is worthy of consideration.

Who Is the Best Father In the Bible?

As we celebrate Father's Day this weekend, the thought came to me to ask you experts who is the best father in the Bible? The Bible tells the stories of many fathers and their struggles to be good parents as part of God's fatherhood call on their lives. Abraham, Isaac, Jacob, Joseph, Moses, Samuel, Saul, and David wrestled with being fathers to their immediate families and to the nation of Israel. Jesus speaks of God as Abba, Father, to denote an intimate, deeply felt relationship of responsibility and love. So, who is the best father in the Bible and why?
Happy Father's Day to all you fathers!  Post a comment and be entered in our Father's Day Promotion on the Jesus Saves Social Network to win tickets to the Louisville Bats Baseball games, patriotic Jesus Saves t-shirts, and movie passes to Village 8 Theatre in Louisville.  Drawings daily June 16th-19th.

Father's Day Promotion - Will Real Men Please Stand Up!

Guardians Tag Ministry
We are grateful for fathers who know Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior and who realize that God's grace, full of mercy and justice, is the force that gives all of us life and men the opportunity to be fathers. 

Share in celebrating Father's Day on the Jesus Saves Social Network by commenting on one of these discussion topics:
  1. Real Men Love Jesus
    What is the difference between a man who really loves Jesus and one who is perpetrating.  Give examples of real men in your church.
  2. A Man After God's Own Heart
    David was a man after God's own heart, and yet he sinned. What does it means to be a father and man of God. 
  3. Young Money: The Rich Young Ruler
    What does God have to say to young fathers who have gotten caught up in the hip hop lifestyles of cars, women, and money?  Use Mark 10:17-31.
  4. Masculinity:  Will the Real Jesus Please Stand Up? 
     Men don't want to follow God oftentimes because they get mixed messages about him, that he's somewhere between macho and milquetoast.  Why Jesus is the ultimate man.
  5. I Am Your Father!
    Paul said in 1 Corinthians 4:15, "Even though you have ten thousand guardians in Christ, you do not have many fathers, for in Christ Jesus I became your father through the gospel."  There are many children without fathers today, and so the need for male mentoring in the church is great.  Use 1 Corinthians 4:1-21 to talk about Christian fathers as mentors.  Do you know any? 
  6. God The Father, A Great Father to Jesus!                                                  Using the Word of God, provide examples of how God the Father was a great father to God, the Son.
  7. Why is your father the best father in the world?
Win movie passes to Village 8 Theatre (Louisville).
Beginning Thursday thru Sunday, we will be giving away patriotic Jesus Saves T-shirts, tickets to the Louisville Bats Baseball games, and tickets to the Village 8 Theatre (Louisville) to participants in these discussions on the Jesus Saves Social Network.  They make great Father's Day gifts.

Thank you for supporting Jesus Saves Ministries.

Black Males: Don't Talk About Them, Pray About Them!

Your prayers are needed now more than at any time this year. Please stand with me in agreement to remain committed to lifting up each other as we travail together in faith before the Lord for the lost, hurting, and displaced people in our families, churches, and communities.

While we remain encouraged by the Word of God no matter the situation, there are too many people who aren't getting the sustenance they need to make it through these difficult times. We must travail for them.
Just last week, I posted a blog that said unemployment among young black malesnationally is the highest its been in 40 years. The economy may be doing better in some respects, but young black males are suffering the hardest. Agree with me to talk to God about this issue. I see 20-something males every day who are trying to turn their lives around. Let's not talk about them, but pray about them. They need the grace, mercy, and love, second and thirds chances, too, that Jesus Christ offers to each of us. The need mentors and guardian angels to show them the way.  Prayer changes things.

In hearing and reading current news stories, we understand that members of this network are not immune from economic hard times, and hardships either. The bible tells in John 16:33, "...In this world you will have trouble." . In fact, Christians will suffer just as Jesus suffered for the gospel's sake. So we must travail in prayer not only for other people, but for one another.

Each day this month, place the name of one person on our prayer list who we can all pray for. Once a week this month, post a prayer in our prayer group, The Prayers of the Righteous. Let us together, through our participation in faith, encourage each other as we stand in the gap for the needs of "least of these" -- the lost, the unemployed, underemployed, the homeless, those in crisis circumstances -- the sick, shut-in, hospitalized, as well as our own families, pastors, churches, ministries and communities.

Remember, the prayers of the righteous availeth much!

Unemployment Rate for Black Males Highest In 40 Years

From The Washington Post

The result for black men ages 16 to 19 is a fate that now resembles a coin toss. Of those seeking work, 54.6 percent find jobs. More than 45 percent do not.

Forty-five percent. It is a number five times the general unemployment rate and almost double the rate for teens. Economists believe that recessions are always harshest on the most vulnerable workers, who are the first to lose their jobs and the last to be rehired, and young black men have long been considered most vulnerable of all. The contributing reasons — which experts say range from education to transportation to systemic racism — are now the topic of abstract debates in the White House and on Capitol Hill.  Read more

Begin Again In Jesus Christ

June is here! Don't let what has happened the past few months keep you from the future God has for you. Why not make the rest of your year the best of your year. Today, choose to begin again with Jesus Christ. Jesus says in His Word, "If I be lifted up, I will draw all men unto me." I love that promise! Jesus promises to do the drawing when we must do the lifting. We invite you to join us in sharing the good news that Jesus saves!

We would love to hear what great and marvelous things God is doing in your life today. As the birds sing, and the "Son" shines, take time to share that powerful testimony God has given you, that scripture He has placed on your heart, that sermon excerpt that in faith will become a rhema word for a weary soul, that upcoming summer revival, conference or ministry event, that prayer request or praise report, and that birthday greeting or note of encouragement, and become an instrument of God's drawing and saving power in someone's life. It doesn't matter where you live. You can reach someone with the Gospel in your hometown, or across the nation, and around the world when you choose to step out in faith and begin again for Jesus Christ. With faith, even the size of a mustard seed, God can move mountains! Trust God and begin again today.

We are blessed by your presence here, but we know in faith that the best is yet to come when you choose to begin again on the Jesus Saves Social Network. God has given us all great and wonderful gifts. Use them to His glory! Tell somebody, everybody, anybody, "I are not ashamed of the gospel. For it is the power of God unto salvation for everyone who believes!" Begin again today, and share the good news that Jesus saves!

Your sister in Christ,
