Many of the millions of born-again Christians worldwide are unsure of God’s will for their lives. Designed to spiritually enlighten born-again believers and lost souls, “My Father’s Business” offers divine guidance that will help spiritual seekers to carry out the Lord’s calling.
Teacher and Author Elder Dwayne Lopes is an ordained minister and the creator of an award-winning local Christian television program. He relies upon practical spiritual truths and natural answers found in the Bible in order to provide spiritual direction for those who want to serve God faithfully. Elder Lopes begins by sharing the story of Jeremiah, a weeping prophet, who often showers his Old Testament prophecies in tears of compassion, yet acknowledges God’s great compassions and mercies are new every morning, for great is God’s faithfulness. He also shares through the life example of the disciples in the New Testament by teaching others on how to receive gifts from God through waiting, fasting, and prayer. Elder Lopes continues to promote and educate spiritual awareness and growth by highlighting the work of several Old Testament prophets who taught valuable lessons about the Word of God, the Afterlife, Repentance, and God’s will for their lives as well as our lives.
Since the Bible declares many are called, and few are chosen, Elder Lopes believes many people are called by God like many are called by telemarketers, survey-takers, and bill collectors over the phone. However, God’s call and his gifts are irrevocable and his call to live the life he intended for us to have should always be answered by saying “Yes” to his will. For few are chosen by God to lead, but many are called by God to serve as laborers to help those in leadership as well as others in the world. This book is written and geared not for the few, but for the many plus the spiritual leadership of wisdom offered in “My Father’s Business” will help the many eager followers on their own journeys to both discover and live the will of our heavenly Father.
Elder Lopes is not only an ordained minister who was the former host of the local, award-winning Christian television program “The Light of the World, Armor Men of God”, but he also obtained his Bachelor’s degree in Pastoral Leadership Ministry from Ohio Christian University in Circleville, Ohio. He is now pursuing his Master’s degree in Practical Theology, plus he and his family currently lives in Reynoldsburg, Ohio.
