From the Pastors Desk – January 2014

Our theme at Oasis this year, 2014, is “Lift Jesus up!”

The key verse is found in John 12 v 32 The words of Jesus:-

“But I, when I am lifted up from the earth, will draw all men to myself.”

I know that this verse refers to the kind of death Jesus was going to die – nailed to the cross – for the sins of each person who has, is, and will ever live.

But I believe that there is Truth in the statement that when we today, lift Jesus up, he still draws all men, women, young people and children to Himself – where we live and move and have a being.

As we lift Jesus up He builds a throne in our lives and in our corporate worship communitites. In His Presence we see Him move and the Glory fall.

Our prayer this year is that The Holy Spirit will move in and through our lives and that everywhere we go we consciously “Lift Jesus Up!” and see him glorified.  That His Kingdom will come and His will be done on earth as it is in Heaven.

May this be fulfilled in our lives,  whoever we are.

With every good wish,

Pastor Nigel
