WHAT A WEEKEND!!! I celebrated my 32nd birthday on Saturday with my amazing family and watched my Auburn Tigers beat Arkansas to become a top 5 ranked team for first time since 2004 and then there was Sunday…
At Oasis Sunday in the 2 worship experiences we witnessed at least 17 people give their hearts to Jesus as we are in this series titled “toxic”!! THAT NEVER GETS OLD!!!! I love to see people surrender their lives to CHRIST… that is what it is all about!!! I spoke on “toxic relationships” and will continue for the next 2 weeks in the same series.
Well, how about last night at New Covenant Church in Moss Point? One Word… WOW! First of all, Pastor Jerry Thompson and his team and church members were so honorable, loving and more of a blessing to me and our Oasis family than words can describe. There was history made last night as we came together as ONE Church, diverse in so many ways, to worship the ONE TRUE GOD and bring Glory to HIS NAME! A dream of mine came true as well… I have always had a dream to preach in a predominately African-American Church and Words cannot express to you the honor and anointing that was in that place! JESUS WAS HONORED!!!
What I love the most is that all these labels and division that man has created through the years, especially in Mississippi and Alabama, all those walls are falling and history is sure being made as the lines of division are becoming more and more blurred!!! I personally dont believe in labels and divisions in God’s Church. I dont believe in white churches, black churches, red churches, green churches, poor churches, rich churches, etc… I BELIEVE IN THE CHURCH! HIS CHURCH!
For the Oasis folks that attending this service and supported this venture, THANK YOU SOOOO MUCH! You dont know how proud I was and am for you all that took time to come and not just support me in speaking there, but to support this ministry and venture as we are witnessing before our very eyes such a great moment and season in history! I believe there is a greater day amongst us and even greater things to come as THE CHURCH unites UNDER JESUS for HIS GLORY!
Anyway, with all that being said, Oasis… Toni and I are so grateful for you! We have witnessed over 800 people come to Christ THIS YEAR and over 3500 in the last 3 years!!! WOW!!!! Let’s keep it up and keep inviting our lost friends and loved ones because the HARVEST is NOW!!! Have a great week!!!!
Last night’s experience was wonderful. I wish everyone could have been there. Eric, it is great to see you have so much fun in what you do and have so much joy in spreading the word. Keep it coming…..By the way…..you have a great series going on right now. 🙂 Makes you say hmmmm.
I cannot exoress the joy in my heart as you spoke and continue to speak the Word. Sunday evening was one of the most awesome services I have been in for a long time. Thank you for your obedience, I look forward to much more fellowship.
Great Post!! So excited about what God is doing!! It is amazing! Learning to believe for even greater!
