The Wideness of God's Mercy
I have now walked with God for 50 years, and with every passing year, the wonder of God's grace grows and grows in my heart and mind and...
PASTOR. AUTHOR. BLOGGER.
Outside of his love for God and his family, Wayne Hoag's greatest love is for the Body of Christ. For forty-five years he has been a shepherd of God's flock. From June 1991 until June 2017, he served as the Senior Pastor of Sierra Bible Church in the mountain town of Truckee, California. During this time his attention was drawn to the New Testament admonitions that call God's children to either be or do something for their fellow believers in the local church. In fact, the call appears a total of twenty-nine times. Upon further study, Wayne became convinced that the twenty-nine one another admonitions were God's unique strategy to shape and mold His children into the image of His Son. For the past four years, he has continued to serve Sierra Bible Church as an associate pastor. He has recently stepped aside from his 30+ years of pastoral service in Truckee so that he might devote his time to developing his writing and speaking ministry regarding the One Another Project.

10 Chapters for a 10 Week Study
Questions to Ponder at the end of each chapter for deep study and discussion
Love your neighbor as yourself!! The watching world...especially now needs to know we are his disciples and this is how we do it by following these two greatest commandments. I wish I had made the time earlier in my life as a husband, a father a friend and as a believer to have taken this journey. The simplicity is overwhelming and disturbing in the most awesome way possible!! Guys...we need this in our lives!!!
I used this in a men's group and it promoted a lot of discussion.
This book is easy to read and the author used very pertinent and timely examples.
Everything the author states is supported by scripture.
This book spoke to me personally and in this reminded me how God wants me to respond to others.
I have read it twice and it could readily be used as a quick reference for the subject of how to apply the "one anothers" of scripture.
Great review of, what Wayne Hoag refers to as, "The Fruit of the Fruit of the Spirit." An insightful and easy to read elaboration of how we should be behaving as Christians - both within and outside of the Church. An easy mirror to use to examine our hearts to review how we are, or are not, demonstrating outward behavior that elaborates on the Fruit of the Spirit which Paul describes in Galatians 6:22-23.
He began to see that following the work of salvation in one's life, God then placed the new believer in a local fellowship where they would be further shaped and refined by and through their life with other believers. That is when the One Another Project was born. The Project was originally a ten week series of sermons that were then further explored in weekly home study groups. The questions that were asked and explored in the small groups are listed at the end of each chapter. Pastor Wayne has not only taught these truths to his Truckee congregation but also to others who want to more fully understand God's strategy of the One Another call.
The key verse for this study is Romans 12:5, "...so we, who are many, are one body in Christ, and individually members of one another." As you read may you grow in your understanding of just how much you need your brothers and sisters in Christ.
