June 15th Sermon “Assignment 2:Relationships”

Your second greatest area of influence is our relationships.  It’s through your relationships that you can set the example of who God is in your life.  This is an opportunity to set an example in action as well as in your conversation.  Matthew 5:16 tells us “ … you should be a light for other people.  Live so they can see the good things you do and will praise your Father in heaven.” Today, discover how you can make a difference in your relationships.

     I must admit that I’m a little nervous about doing two new songs (for Oasis) in one Sunday.  Do me a favor, and encourage others to check out the blog so they can learn the two new songs.  We are currently right in the middle of VBS, and I’m having a blast just as I always do.  Last night was our first night, and so some of the songs where new to the kids that where here.  The cool thing is that they don’t let their unfamiliarity change the way they praise.  They sing out as loud as they can, and attempt the actions no matter what.  By the end of the night, I was blown away with their enthusiasm as they praised their God through song.  Oh how I wish everyone could catch on to that kind of passion!  

    We’re continuing our new series “Mission Possible”, and this week Bro. Todd will be talking about how we can reach those who are around us.  Christ tells us we are to be the light of the world, but that light doesn’t come from us, we simply reflect the light he has shown us.  We begin this week singing about the “Marvelous Light” that we run to.  This is a pretty familiar song at Oasis, but incorporate it into your personal time this week, and let’s really sing it out as we celebrate the fact that God has called us out of darkness and into His marvelous light.

     “We Shine” is a new song at Oasis, and requires a lot of energy (Be sure to stretch and get warmed up so that you’re nice and awake by service time. Ha)  This is another song of celebration as we shout “We are the Redeemed, we are the ones who are free, and we belong to Jesus!  We are now alive and in this world we will shine, and we belong to Jesus!”  Be sure to watch the video of Steve Fee leading this song so that you can become familiar with it and sing it out.

     “Shine” continues our theme of being light to the world.  Being light to the world is more than just singing about it at church.  Philippians 2:14-15 says, “Do everything without complaining or arguing, so that you may become blameless and pure, children of God without fault in a crooked and depraved generation, in which you shine like stars in the universe.”  We live in a world where it seems like wrong is right and right is wrong, but Paul reminds us that we are not to be like the world around us so that we can shine like the stars, and bring our God glory.  Check out the video of this song by clicking the link in the chart above.

     We finish the music portion of our services with “Here I Am to Worship”.  Light of the world you stepped down into darkness opened my eyes, let me see”.   Once again we are reminded that Jesus is the light of the world, and our response to Him is worship.  You can check out a video for this song  as well by clicking the link in the chart above.

 Thanks for taking time to check out what will be happening on Sunday.  If you get a chance this week (through Wednesday) come by the church around 8:20p.m. and see how passionate our kids are about worship.  It really is exciting to see.  I look forward to worshiping with you on Sunday.

    Doug,

    I really like the line up for this week. Marvelous light is one of my favorites. And, I am excited about the 2 new songs. We Shine is definately going to be a challenge, but it is so fun. Shine is absolutely beautiful. Thank you for looking for such powerful messages in song. I love that you introduce us to new songs so often. Thank you!!! I look forward to worship on Sunday. But I have to say it will be a challenge in itself trying to compete with the worship at VBS.
