Getting Ready for Sunday, April 26th

“Your Signature”

 

Everyone of us has a unique signature that cannot be duplicated by anyone. Your signature is not the only thing unique. You are unique. God did not make anyone else just like you.  Today, as we study the life of Caleb, we will discover the importance of just being yourself.

     You’ve probably heard me talk about this before, but I think it’s worth repeating.  So often we want to be like someone else.  We want to have talents and abilities that another person has.  We want to look like him, or look like her.  I know it’s something I have struggled with often.  I’m thankful that God opened my eyes to the fact that He didn’t create me to be like anyone else….he created me to be Doug.  He created you to be you!  Today’s service deals a lot with this as Bro. Todd will be talking about “Your Signature”.  God placed you on this earth for a purpose….and that purpose is not to be like everyone else, but to be who God has created YOU to be. 

      Our music this week deals with this theme.  We open up with “Wonderful Maker” which celebrates our awesome creator.  He created us in His image, and with the talents and abilities that He wanted us to have.  From there, we celebrate the fact that the creator of the universe calls us friend.  “Friend Of God” is one of those songs that just makes me smile.  I love the first line “who am I that you are mindful of me, that you hear me when I call”  We go on to proclaim how amazing it is that God would call us friend.

     We will be doing a new song to Oasis this week called “I Will Boast”.  My brother actually introduced me to this song (please don’t tell him this as I like to make him think that I know everything.  Ha!)  I really like the concept of this song as we are reminded that everything we “own” and every ability we have is not of us.  When we boast, we will boast in the Lord our God who alone is worthy.  Check out this new song by clicking the link in the chart above.  I think you’ll really enjoy it.

     We will settle things down into an acoustic set towards the end of the music portion of the service with songs like “Just the Way I Am”, “How Great Thou Art”, and “How Great Is Our God”. 

    I’m really looking forward to this service, and believe it will be a special time of worship for us.  Thanks for taking time to check out what will be happening at Oasis on Sunday.  I look forward to worshiping with you then.

 

Bro. Doug
