Sunday Sum-up.

Today was awesome! The highlight by far was that one person at Oasis Church gave their life to Christ today! That is so freakin' awesome! That brings the total to 4 people who have given their lives to Christ since we launched 14 weeks ago! I feel like we have been going for years and yet I feel like we just started last week. I am sooooo full of excitement for what God is doing in our presence. Steven Cathcart led worship today and I must say that he did a fantastic job. I've known Steven for years and I love him dearly. He has more musical talent in his pinky toe than most people have in their whole body. I absolutely LOVE that he has a desire to use his talent for God's glory. Today we began our series entitled "Practical Atheist". What is a practical atheist you ask....? A practical atheist is someone who believes in God but lives as though He doesn't exist. A recent Gallup poll has shown that some 94% of Americans believe in God or some form of God. Yet, how many people actually live as though they believe in Him? This is a huge issue in the American church. Here are a few random thoughts from today.

-So many of us claim to know God, but our actions tell a completely different story.

-God expects us to strive for perfection, but He doesn't expect us to attain perfection... That's what Jesus is for.

-Someone gave their life to Christ today!

-We can so easily miss who God is due to our blind conceit.

-Our volunteers ROCKED IT OUT today!

-I love our volunteers!

-I love our staff!... As always, I'm am looking forward to this weeks staff meeting.

-Hell is one person less crowded today!!

-If you are really all in with God, instead of fixing your life, He will ruin it... In a really good way!

-We have got to understand what it means to fear God.

-If you missed today, listen to the podcast. then click on Podcast.

-We saw salvation take place first hand today!!!

-Many people made a renewed commitment to God today! AWESOME!

-I absolutely LOVED the new bulletins today. Eric did a fantastic job on them.

-I love how our volunteers own the call that God has placed on their lives.

-Jesus took on YOUR SIN!... Yes YOURS!

-If you are coming to Oasis next week BRING A FRIEND!... or 10, it could change their eternity!

-Remembering a quote from this week, "People aren't looking for friendly churches, they are looking for friends." Oasis, it is soooo imperative that we be completely real with people!

-We've got camping for cans coming on Dec. 4-5th!

-God is AMAZING!
