The Story of Glenn Shroeder by Bob Hartley
The Definition of Hope in People
Hoping in God in People is viewing others with the value & greatness of God; and telling them who they are in God versus who they are not. It is realizing that people matter, and that it is worth it because LOVE IS WORTH IT!
Make Room in Your Heart for People
Make room in your heart for others, even though they may trample your flowers (through insensitivity). You move from fighting WITH people to fighting FOR people. As you “Hope in God through People” there is something that can only be released through relationship with others. The Lord cultivates our hearts in the presence of others.
Romans 12:10 “Be kindly affectionate to one another with brotherly love, in honor giving preference to one another”
Receive a Healed View of the Leadership of Jesus
When my father made room in his heart for me, he received a healed view of the Leadership of Jesus in his life. He saw the Ways of Jesus, cause us to be in healthy relationships with others. God's Ways are perfect, so we learn we can trust Him.
John 13:14 “A new commandment I give to you, that you love one another; as I have loved you, that you also love one another”
Supernatural Love Comes Forth
When my father made room in his heart for me, hope healed his emotions and produced a Supernatural Love in him that helped to heal my heart by giving me Hope in Who God was in me.
1 Thessalonians 3:12 “And may the Lord make you increase and abound in love to one another and to all”
My friend, Glenn Schroeder also experienced this, as he made room in his heart for broken people and expanded and built a future for them. As Glen Schroeder was leading a church in Portland. I went there to visit, and I saw that his church was full of broken and incomplete and imperfect people who had made many mistakes, but the church was still prospering and building!
Glen Schroeder, a direct son of John Wimber, had the same anointing to rejoice over his people. I asked Glen about different areas, expecting him to be frustrated. Instead Glen would just rejoice in his people, in who they were. Glen had the insight of Hope into people's lives.
The Results of Glen making Room in His Heart for People
As a result of Glen’s Hope in his team, and making room in his heart for them, despite their brokenness and weaknesses, caused his team to be built and expanded in exponential ways!
