In ministry, we often find ourselves in a place of wanting to do more for God. That isn’t a bad desire to have, but the truth is, God doesn’t want us to do more for Him, He is actually just looking for more of us, more of our heart. Coincidentally, when God gets more of us He is able to do more through us. One of the lyrics in Oceans by UNITED says, “My faith will be made stronger in the presence of my Savior.” If we are able to wrap our minds around that statement it can completely transform our faith. It becomes about chasing after God and allowing our service to be the natural outflow of that relationship. Sometimes that simple truth gets lost in the busyness of our roles.
By now I’m sure you’ve heard Oceans a few times, the runaway success from UNITED’s most recent release, Zion. The song has been everywhere since the album came out and you’ve probably already tried it a few times in your church. If you’re still trying to figure out how to incorporate it, though, you may want to check out the new Oceans EP, available on iTunes. The EP features a few different versions of the song that may help you figure out a unique way to include it in your worship service.
