On Sunday, September 2 our church will launch a CHURCH-WIDE emphasis based on Max Lucado’s latest book UNSHAKABLE HOPE.  

People are starving for hope!  Hebrews 6:19 says, “We have this hope as an anchor for the soul, firm and secure.” 

Since we belong to God we can choose to build our lives on the unchangeable, unshakable promises He has made to His children.  When life veers out of control it is God’s promises that see us through and keep us on track.  His promises give us hope that our prayers have power; that joy is lasting; that justice will prevail and peace is ours for eternity.

Below you will find the Sunday preaching plan and the Oasis calendar. I want to encourage you to be more than a spectator as we dive into this study.  Take advantage of the resources available to deepen your faith and strengthen the hope that is available to you as a child of the King!  Invite an unchurched family member or friend to join you for this series. Join a small group study or Sunday School class with them.

PROMISE 1

Stamped with God’s Image

Pop psychology is wrong when it tells you to look inside yourself and find your value. The magazines are wrong when they suggest you are only as good as you are thin, muscular, pimple- free, or perfumed. The movies mislead you when they imply that your value increases as your stamina, intelligence, or net worth grows. Religious leaders lie when they urge you to grade your significance according to your church attendance, self- discipline, or spirituality.
According to the Bible you are good simply because God made you in his image. Period. He cherishes you because you bear a resemblance to him. And you will only be satisfied when you engage in your role as an image bearer of God. Such was the view of King David: “As for me, I will see Your face in righteousness; I shall be satisfied when I awake in Your likeness” (Ps. 17:15).
Lay hold of this promise, and spare yourself a world of confusion and fear. How much sadness would evaporate if every person simply chose to believe this: I was made for God’s glory and am being made into his image.
