Do you get convicted when sinning or in other words does it extremely hurt your feelings when you do wrong? Do you see a decreased pattern of sin in your life? Jesus said except a man be born again then he cannot enter into the Kingdom of Heaven. If your born again that doesn’t mean you will be PERFECT but if you REALLY know the Lord then you will have no choice but to fall in love with Him. The bible says we show our love for the Lord by obedience to the commandments. Meaning you should strive to walk in all the ways of the Lord. The only way to be saved to ask for forgiveness from God believing Jesus paid for your sins but the evidence of true faith is a changed life. Matthew 7:21 says Not everyone who says Lord, Lord will enter into Heaven only he who does the will of God. This just means not everyone who talks about God knows God. God is more concerned with our walk than our talk.

Stephen I -
Stephen I. was introduced to Hip-Hop around age 12 and he immediately fell in love with the confident, courageous and charismatic artists who he began to idolize. Gangster rappers such as Tupac, Master P., Snoop Dogg and others raised Stephen I. in the absence of his dad.
Stephen soon started portraying the lifestyle he heard in rap music. He began fighting frequently, stealing daily and he dropped out of school to sell drugs and run the streets. By this time Stephen, himself, was addicted to marijuana and in and out of jail. He had numerous near death experiences while distributing drugs and being involved with gangs yet nothing seemed to open his eyes. He recalls one day in particular in Cherokee County jail that he will never forget… “There was no hope for me AT ALL,” he says. “I finally sobered up enough to realize I had completely ruined every opportunity I ever had and my life was destroyed. About the time I was ready to throw in the towel, I heard the guard marching around the corner with a letter in his hand from my sister. The letter was all about Jesus and how He wanted to forgive me and give me another chance and I instantly cried out to the Lord with all my heart.”
After Stephen got out of jail he met Kevin Whitaker founder of Meekness Music and soon signed with the label and has been touring for the past two years with the mission of bringing the hope of Jesus Christ to Hip-Hop music and it’s millions of followers. Last year alone Stephen I. ministered to thousands of people across America. From colleges and churches to family reunions and birthday parties; from professional basketball games to prisons Stephen I has been given the ability to communicate effectively to all types of cultures and backgrounds. His ministry has been radically impacting people from all over with the uncompromising word of God. Not only does Stephen I. minister through music but he is a recognized preacher calling this world to repentance.
