May 4th Sermon “What Does He Mean By Whoever?”

There are many people today who just can’t comprehend that God would forgive them. There are even those in religious circles who feel that God will save some and reject others, but what does the Bible say about who can be forgiven, who can be saved, and who can have eternal life.

     What an awesome series this is already shaping up to be.  This week John Herring will be talking about what God means by “Whoever”.  It’s hard to believe that God could love the very people who turn their back on Him time and again, but He does.  No matter how many times I mess up, no matter how many times I go the wrong way, I know that Christ is still waiting for me to return with open arms.  This week our music focuses on our Savior’s love for us, and the power that He has to save those that we often think of as having no hope.

     We start off this week with the hymn “Jesus Loves Even Me”.  We’ll just be singing the chorus as we celebrate the fact that Jesus loves us.  In a world full of hurt and pain, this simple reminder helps us to realize that we are loved and cared for no matter what.

     We have only sang “No Sweeter Name” one time in the past here at Oasis.  This is such a great song of worship as we lift up the name of Jesus.  I especially like the chorus that says, “You are the life to my heart and my soul. You are the light to the darkness around me. You are the hope to the hopeless and broken. You are the only truth and the way.” My favorite part of the chorus is when we sing that He is the hope for the hopeless and broken.  O how true that is!  Take time to listen to this song by clicking the link in the chart above.  The video is about 10 minutes long, but the last 5 minutes is a lot of repetition.  I would recommend only listening to the first five minutes.

     “O Happy Day” is another song of celebration that we have become quite familiar with here at Oasis.  Let’s sing it out as we testify of the day that Christ rescued us.  Take a listen to “O Happy Day” by clicking the link in the chart above.

     “Mighty to Save” has become one of my favorite songs as of late.  There is nothing stronger than the love that Christ has for us.  Our Savior who conquered the grave can move the mountains.  Our God is truly Mighty to Save.  Let’s shout it out Sunday!  Take a listen to this song by clicking the link in the chart above.

     We’ll finish up the music portion of the service Sunday with “You Are My King”.  I don’t know about you, but so often I find myself questioning why the creator of the universe would love me.  The truth is that He does; and like we heard on Sunday, His love doesn’t depend on my actions  or abilities.  He has loved me from the very start.  Check out a version of “You Are My King” by clicking the link in the chart above.    

     Thanks for taking time to check out what will be happening on Sunday.  I really look forward to worshiping with you on Sunday.
