2017 Theme

Theme 2017 What does life boil down to? In the end, when all is said and done where do your hopes lie? I think that many people go through life without ever really grappling with that question. Even if we have done so it is very easy to forget and instead of living your life with that hope always in mind, to be caught up with all the many things we have to deal with. The immediate things crowd out the important things. In the process, instead of living our lives, our lives live us. As Christians, it is vital that we keep our eyes on the focal point… our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. And that is what we are going to strive for in 2017. Our theme for 2017 is, “Lord I Look to You.” In every sermon series, in every sermon, in everything we do as Christians, we are going to ask the question, “Where is Jesus in this situation?”

Transformed

Our lives are in a constant transformation. I remember the first day I arrived to Denton, TX, a bit over four years ago. In the beginning I was by myself and not long after my beautiful wife was with me after a short process with immigration. What was supposed to take four years, only took one and a half years, and a constant transformation began in our lives. We faced many challenges, but God always with us, we were blessed.

What seemed impossible then is possible today. Shortly after she arrived to this country God did a miracle of healing in her life and a miracle of life, our son and daughter. We have experienced many things in such short time and have witnessed how everything is possible with God and how He can transform us.

Overdue Thank You

As I sit here to reflect on my past four years here at Singing Oaks, I found myself drawn to a particular verse—

“God has given each of you a gift from his great variety of spiritual gifts. Use them well to serve one another. Do you have the gift of speaking? Then speak as though God himself were speaking through you. Do you have the gift of helping others? Do it with all the strength and energy that God supplies. Then everything you do will bring glory to God through Jesus Christ. All glory and power to him forever and ever! Amen.” 1 Peter 4: 10-11

Singing Oaks, you have been my constant and steady home for four years. Through my uncertainties and fumblings that come along with college life, this church has remained constant. I started here as a confused freshman just trying to make some friends. I never knew that when I decided I wanted to volunteer with the children’s ministry that my life would take such a drastic turn.

Tornadoes, Shooting Sprees, Crazy Dictators, and Other Flaming Arrows

Ephesians 6:16in addition to all, taking up the shield of faith with which you will be able to extinguish all the flaming arrows of the evil one.

The news is always crazy, but this week it has seemed more than usual. It hit home for me when large portions and outlying areas of my hometown of Canton were destroyed by EF3 tornadoes. It also seems that every time I have seen the news recently there has been another random shooter rampage, or a knife wielding person stabbing students at random, terrorist attacks, and to top it all off that psycho in North Korea is getting more and more adamant about war with the U.S.A.

One of the things tornadoes, active shooters, terrorists, and crazy dictators all have in common is their unpredictable and uncontrollable randomness. With all the “intelligence” we have about our enemies and about severe weather, these things mentioned above still take us by total surprise.

Fit In, Find Faith, Function Faithfully

One of my favorite little tunes that I learned in Bible class as a kid is the Apostle’s Song. You know the one to help you remember the names of the apostles, right?

(To the tune of Jesus Loves Me)
Jesus called them one by one
Peter, Andrew, James and John
Next came Philip, Thomas too
Matthew and Bartholomew
James the one they called the less
Simon, also Thaddeus
The twelfth apostle Judas made
Jesus was by him betrayed
Yes, Jesus called them
Yes, Jesus called them
Yes, Jesus called them
And they all followed him

Now as an adult, I have a lot of new thoughts about that song and its implications on church life. Singing Oaks, like all healthy churches, reinvents its methods every so often to help keep itself on mission. We are a church that is all about seeking and saving the lost. That hasn’t changed. But the culture around us has changed rapidly, and our mission methods aren’t as fruitful as they once were.

“That They May Be One”

On the night that Jesus was betrayed, in the room where He and His disciples shared a last meal, Jesus closed out their time with a prayer… the prayer recorded in John 17. He first prayed for Himself and what God was about to do through Him. Then He prayed for His disciples. And finally, He prayed for you and me.

20 “My prayer is not for them alone. I pray also for those who will believe in me through their message, 21 that all of them may be one, Father, just as you are in me and I am in you. May they also be in us so that the world may believe that you have sent me. 22 I have given them the glory that you gave me, that they may be one as we are one— 23 I in them and you in me—so that they may be brought to complete unity. Then the world will know that you sent me and have loved them even as you have loved me.

24 “Father, I want those you have given me to be with me where I am, and to see my glory, the glory you have given me because you loved me before the creation of the world.
