June 12, 2022 Meeting

Topic: What to Do with Fear
The Bible commands us 365 times not to fear. Yet fear has become part of our everyday lives. Do you know how to control fear before it controls you?
One of God’s precious promises is found in John 14:20 (LB):
“When I come back to life again, you will know that I am in My Father and you in Me, and I in you.”

Bill and Annabel Gillham of will teach us how to apply this beautiful truth to our lives and overcome fear. You’ll see why this popular video series has helped so many.

God has been doing great things at OASIS SINGLES MINISTRY since we began in 1997. That hasn’t changed!

Topic For Such A Time AS This

Take a moment to get a bible, note book and pen.

We talked about serving the Lord. Don’t tune the message out if you think your too old or too anything. Only 10% of Jesus’ life was actually spent in ministry. He didn’t begin his ministry on earth till he was 33. Also don’t discount serving if you are feeling overwhelmed with problems. God often teaches us compassion through our own suffering.

OASIS IS A Discipling ministry

Jesus Commissions His Disciples

16 The eleven disciples went into Galilee to the hillside to which Jesus had directed them. 17 When they saw him, they worshipped him, though some had doubts. 18 Then Jesus approached them and told them, “All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. 19 Therefore, as you go, disciple people in all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and the Son, and the Holy Spirit, 20 teaching them to obey everything that I’ve commanded you. And remember, I am with you each and every day[l] until the end of the age.”[m]

Note that God gives us authority to represent His Kingdom with Kingdom power before He gives us responsibility.

Marcus Warner, Deeper Walk International Ministry gives this definition:

Discipleship is assimilation into the culture of the Kingdom of Heaven.

Assimilation, or cultural assimilation, is the process by which different cultural groups become more and more alike. When full assimilation is complete, there is no distinguishable difference between the formerly different groups.

“For we are His workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand that we should walk in them.” Eph 2:10

“But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit comes on you; and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the ends of the earth.” Acts 1:8

And from the days of John the Baptist until now the kingdom of heaven suffers violence, and the violent take it by force.” Matt. 11:12 The violent who take it by force are people of keen enthusiasm and commitment who are willing to respond to and propagate with radical abandonment the message and dynamic of  God’s reign.

The upheaval caused by the Kingdom of God is not caused by political provocation or armed advance. IT is the result of God’s order shaking relationships, households, cities, and nations by the entry of the Holy Spirit’s  power working in people..   Spirit Filled Life Study Bible

Luke 10:25-37

The Parable of the Good Samaritan

25 On one occasion an expert in the law stood up to test Jesus. “Teacher,” he asked, “what must I do to inherit eternal life?”

26 “What is written in the Law?” he replied. “How do you read it?”

27 He answered, “‘Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your strength and with all your mind’[a]; and, ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’[b]

28 “You have answered correctly,” Jesus replied. “Do this and you will live.”

29 But he wanted to justify himself, so he asked Jesus, “And who is my neighbor?”

30 In reply Jesus said: “A man was going down from Jerusalem to Jericho, when he was attacked by robbers. They stripped him of his clothes, beat him and went away, leaving him half dead. 31 A priest happened to be going down the same road, and when he saw the man, he passed by on the other side. 32 So too, a Levite, when he came to the place and saw him, passed by on the other side. 33 But a Samaritan, as he traveled, came where the man was; and when he saw him, he took pity on him. 34 He went to him and bandaged his wounds, pouring on oil and wine. Then he put the man on his own donkey, brought him to an inn and took care of him. 35 The next day he took out two denarii[  (2 days pay) and gave them to the innkeeper. ‘Look after him,’ he said, ‘and when I return, I will reimburse you for any extra expense you may have.’

36 “Which of these three do you think was a neighbor to the man who fell into the hands of robbers?”

37 The expert in the law replied, “The one who had mercy on him.”

Jesus told him, “Go and do likewise.”

Who is our neighbor? Anyone we can help.

Read Eph 1:1-14 .

Common Strategies of the Devil

  1. Get you to look at your circumstances. We walk by faith not by sight.
  2. Get you to look at yourself. Your own abilities, shortcomings, even to trust in yourself which is sin. Comparison  You’re not good enough, smart enough,

Faith in God is what unleashes His power.

  1. Self Absorption. A life turned inward is Satan’s common way to put you on the sidelines.
  2. Distractions
  3. Materialism.
  4. Cares of the world choke you.
  5. You don’t know what to do, how to serve ask God.
  6. Wait for a better time when your life is perfect more organized. That rarely happens.

Proverbs 11:25

The generous will prosper; those who refresh others will themselves be refreshed.

Luke 1:53

He has filled the hungry with good things but has sent the rich away empty.

What are you thinking about today? The Good News or the bad news?

“How beautiful on the mountains are the feet of those who bring good news, who proclaim peace, who bring good tidings, who proclaim salvation, who say to Zion, ‘Your God reigns!’”  Isaiah 52:7

Dating insight from popular Christian author Henry Cloud:
1.Successful singles make rejection and failed relationships a NON EVENT.
2.Dating is a high risk low commitment arena.
3.Marriage does not change the dynamic of a relationship.
4.Unforgiveness leaves you stuck in the past trying to collect a debt you never will.
3 questions to ask when dating:
Does the person bring you closer to God?
How is the conflict resolution?
Do they make you a better person?
Keep focused on God. He is in control.
 “Remember the former things, those of long ago;    I am God, and there is no other;    I am God, and there is none like me.I make known the end from the beginning,    from ancient times, what is still to come.I say, ‘My purpose will stand,    and I will do all that I please.’From the east I summon a bird of prey;    from a far-off land, a man to fulfill my purpose.What I have said, that I will bring about;    what I have planned, that I will do.”
Isaiah 46:9-11
Your Heavenly Father wants to guide you:
“Call to me and I will answer you and tell you great and unsearchable things you do not know.” Jer. 33:3
“Throughout the Bible, God promises to speak to His children—but we must listen for His voice. To listen actively, we must come before the Lord expectantly. We must eagerly anticipate Him speaking to us.” Charles F. Stanley, The Charles F. Stanley Life Principles Bible.
A close walk with God begins with actively seeking Him daily. “Draw near to God and He will draw near to you” James 4:8. We seek God when we read His Word, play worship music, listen to teachings (free at, and talk to Him in prayer while leaving time to listen for Him to speak to us. All day long we can be sensitive to His leading and talking to us as we talk to Him. The devil uses discouragement to get us to stop seeking the Lord. But we walk by faith, not by sight. Ask God to strengthen and comfort you when you are tired and weary. Ask Him what He is doing in your life and what He is teaching you. Ask Him to help you and tell you what to do. Ask Him what His will for you is in each circumstance. Write down what He tells you in a notebook with the date. Ask Him to encourage you when you feel down. Go to Him with everything. That’s intimacy. The question isn’t ‘does God speak to us’ because He does. The question is ‘why does He speak to us?’ Because He is a loving Heavenly Father who longs to parent His children and care for them and guide them into His ways. His plan is the one that’s best for us. He created us for relationship with Him. Life is meaningless apart from Him.
Be strong in the Lord! Focus on your inner life and not on the ever changing circumstances around you:
“Yours, O Lord, is the greatness,The power and the glory,The victory and the majesty;For all that is in heaven and in earth is Yours;Yours is the kingdom, O Lord,And You are exalted as head over all.”1 Chronicles 29:11-12
