Jesus Friend of Sinners

Isn't it great to know that Jesus is our "Friend" I am so glad that Jesus loves the sinners and not only that but if we look into His Word we see that He loved to hang out with the sinners. He hung out with them but never participated in the sin. Once we become saved He doesn't say to us only hang out with Christians. No if we did that how would the world know Him. When He met up with the woman at the well He simply said "Go and sin no more." It isn't up to us to judge the world, but God's greatest commandment was to love one another, that doesn't just mean to love on believers but also the unbelievers. How many friends do you have that love you no matter what. I have a couple of friends that have loved me through some of my darkest times.. they have been my friends even when I didn't want them to be they still loved me. They were my friends even when I was the most unlovable. At Oasis we model Christ's example to the survivors of sex trafficking. Even though they may not want us to be their "friend" we love them and are close to them through their dark days. When they strike out at us because of the anger inside of them we still hug them and tell them we love them. When they spit at us or call us a ****ing ***ch we tell them that we understand and love them. We give them their space, but we are always there for them with a word of encouragement when they are ready to hear. Or we just sit with them quietly while they tell us their horror stories. We lay on the floor with them while they are hiding in their hiding place under their beds. We hold them in our arms when they are trying to bang their heads against the wall to hurt themselves. We read bed time stories or sing songs to them to calm their fears. All in all we just want them to see us as a their "Friend" That's how we roll here at Oasis. No high pressure preaching, No condemnation, we just keep it simple and we just walk in the footsteps of Jesus and call them "Friend"

  1. Just Love God...
    and love your neighbor.
    That's what I do and...
    I'll see you, dear, in Seventh-Heaven.

    Why else does a moth fly FROM the night
    than to a bold, attractive candle Light??
    Don’t let His extravagant Brilliance be extinguished.
    You’re creative, yes?
    Then, fly-away with U.S. to the antidote…

    Whether you obtain morality4mortality to wiseabove
    or just glean tantalizing specimens for thy next best seller,
    you shall find in our blogs a lotta (subliminal) moxie
    which has taken this sinfull mortal yeeeeers to compile!
    I lay it ALL out for you, dear, with All-Star-Oxygems:

    Wouldn’t ya love an endless eternity
    of aplomBombs falling on thy indelible cranium?
    An XtraXcitinXpose with no zooillogical-expiration-date?
    An IQ much higher than K2 all-go-rhythm?
    An anti-establishment, savvy victory +
    avant-guarde-humility =
    you’re promptly astonished, ain’tcha?
    withe extraordinarily explosion of mellowdramatic maelstrom??
    Ha. Yeah. Us, too, for eternity.
    Here’s what the exquisite, prolific GODy sed
    (with a most-excellent-detector of bull§ht):

    “Faith, hope, and love,
    the greatest of these is love –
    jump into faith…
    and you’ll VitSee with love”
    Doesn’t matter if you don’t believe (what I write);
    God believes in you.

    Meet me Upstairs, girl, where the Son never goes down
    from a super-passionate, lucrative iconoclasm where you’ll find
    of deluxe-HTTP [<- pi] opportunities for excitement BTW.

    Do it. Do the deed, dude. Sign into the Big-Zaftig-House.

    PS “It is impossible that anyone should NOT receive all that they have believed and hoped to obtain; it gives Me great pleasure when they hope great things from Me and I will always give them more than they expect”
