Welcome to PastorJames.com
Although I am not the Pastor of a local church, my prayer is for all mankind to love the Lord Jesus with all our heart, soul, mind, strength and that this love will be clearly seen in our lives by our obedience through study and prayer to Him (Exodus 20).
Only in His strength and mercy will we succeed in loving others as He has loved us! - James
