Christian Today report- American Idol alum Phil Stacey wants the faithful to share the message of God and he is leading by example.
Stacey, who is best known for being one of Idol’s Season 6 finalists, has joined forces with the Reach Beyond ministry to record a single in an effort to motivate Christians to do their part in spreading the Gospel and embodying the message of Christ in their own lives.
Reach Beyond and its ministries are targeted towards reaching those who are as yet unreached and untouched by the Word of God.
“I was thrilled when Reach Beyond approached me about recording this song. My heart has always been in tune with global missions, and I hope the personal and potent message of this song inspires people to tell others about Jesus – whether it’s in their immediate communities or in a country thousands of miles from home,” Stacey said.
Reach Beyond, which is also the title of the single, was a collaboration between Stacey and Christian recording artist and Dove award winner Chris August, who wrote the music. Ty Stakes penned the lyrics.
On his website, Stacey shared the lyrics to a portion of the song which encapsulated the essence of becoming Gospel ambassadors for the faithful:
You reach beyond every limit crossing time and space,
You reach beyond majestic beauty to this broken place,
You reach beyond heaven’s glory to hang upon a cross,
You reach beyond every border counting all as lost,
You reach, you reach beyond… You reach beyond to us.
The Reach Beyond single is available on iTunes, as well as Spotify, Amazon, Google and other music providers.
The proceeds from the sale of the single will fund the ministries of Reach Beyond, which range from communication programmes to spreading the gospel, building water wells in Ghana, running health clinics in Ecuador, and working on Ebola prevention in Africa.

WHAT DO YOU THINK?- We have all sinned and deserve God's judgment. God, the Father, sent His only Son to satisfy that judgment for those who believe in Him. Jesus, the creator and eternal Son of God, who lived a sinless life, loves us so much that He died for our sins, taking the punishment that we deserve, was buried, and rose from the dead according to the Bible. If you truly believe and trust this in your heart, receiving Jesus alone as your Savior, declaring, "Jesus is Lord," you will be saved from judgment and spend eternity with God in heaven.
What is your response?
If you are not a Christian, and would like to become a Christian. Simply say - "LORD Jesus, thank you for forgiving me of my SINs, today I am deciding to follow you. Accept me into your family, in Jesus name I pray. Amen "
