Someone Important

October 17, 2014

A prominent Christian and friend of SOS Events went to visit a church and the Pastor introduced him and his wife. A woman sitting next to the wife turned and said, “If I knew you were someone important I would have talked to you.”
This is sad but true. Christian are you friendly to others when they are in your midst? The Bible tells us to be no respecter of persons.

Acts 10:34
Then Peter opened his mouth, and said, Of a truth I perceive that God is no respecter of persons:

Hebrews 13:2
Be not forgetful to entertain strangers:for thereby some have entertained angels unawares.

In whom ye also trusted, after that ye heard the word of truth, the gospel of your salvation:in whom also after that ye believed, ye were sealed with that holy Spirit of promise,

“To leave this matter of saving souls to preachers is not only heartless; it is inexcusably wicked.”
John R. Rice

John R. Rice was a great preacher, teacher, author, song writer, evangelist and most of all a soul winner. He has been in Heaven since 1980 but his work for the Lord continues to this day. One of his favorite Bible verses:

The fruit of the righteous is a tree of life;
and he that winneth souls is wise.

Never Alone

October 12, 2014

Sometimes in life we feel like we go one step forward and two steps back. God never promised the Christian an easy life but He did promise to go with us through every trial. When we accept Jesus as our Savior we receive the Holy Spirit who is our Comforter. Be encouraged, we are never alone or forsaken.

John 14:16
And I will pray the Father, and he shall give you another Comforter, that he may abide with you for ever;

What If?

Yesterday is past but did you thank God for yesterday’s blessings?
At the end of the day we were able to thank the Lord for the fellowship of family, God’s creation as we watched hummingbirds, chickadees, cardinals, and raccoons all from our porch.
Today is a new day. Look for the blessings of this day even if it is just a small blessing.
In times of trials in life, the blessings of God are always there if we open our eyes to look for them.
If you need a blessing today and want prayer email: tom@sosevents.org.

1 Thessalonians 5:18
In every thing give thanks:for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus concerning you.

At Calvary

October 10, 2014

William R. Newell was the author of the hymn At Calvary. He was A rebellious teenager and his father did not know what to do with his son who was so wayward.
In desperation he contacted the president of Moody Bible Institute in Chicago, begging that William would be allowed to attend. The president was hesitant to allow him to be enrolled but finally decided that if William would meet with him everyday and study diligently he would be accepted into the college.
William stumbled may times but his Father’s prayers, the college president’s commitment and faith in Jesus resulted in a changed life in William. He wrote the hymn At Calvary in poetry form as a testimony of his life.
William R. Newell (1868-1956) is remembered fondly as a pastor, evangelist, Bible teacher, author, conference speaker and writer. And he is remembered as a humble man who recognized that it was only by the grace of God that he was able to accomplish so many things.

At Calvary
Years I spent in vanity and pride,
Caring not my Lord was crucified,
Knowing not it was for me He died on Calvary.
Mercy there was great, and grace was free;
Pardon there was multiplied to me;
There my burdened soul found liberty at Calvary.
By God’s Word at last my sin I learned;
Then I trembled at the law I’d spurned,
Till my guilty soul imploring turned to Calvary.
Now I’ve given to Jesus everything,
Now I gladly own Him as my King,
Now my raptured soul can only sing of Calvary!
Oh, the love that drew salvation’s plan!
Oh, the grace that brought it down to man!
Oh, the mighty gulf that God did span at Calvary!

And when they were come to the place, which is called Calvary, there they crucified him. Luke 23:33
