Administrative Professionals Day – April 24, 2019

April 24, 2019

Diana Guiliano, Office Manager, SOS Events Ministry.

Alice Thomas, Event Coordinator, SOS Events Ministry.

Today is National Administrative Professionals Day. Maybe you have never heard of it. U.S. Secretary of Commerce Charles W. Sawyer initiated the first celebration of administrative professionals in 1952. While these positions are often not given their due praise, any successful business is aware that the administrative staff keep things running like a well-oiled machine, so make sure to let the administrative professionals in your life know they are appreciated today!

These 2 women are greatly appreciated as administrative professionals. SOS Events could not have flourished and grown without our dedicated staff. Thank you Diana and Alice.

1 Corinthians 1:4 I thank my God always on your behalf, for the grace of God which is given you by Jesus Christ;

Preparing for a Trip

April 23, 2019

When going on a trip, business or pleasure, we prepare by making sure we pack everything we may need. Proper clothing, toiletries and identification. We are looking forward to the trip with great anticipation.

We are preparing for the greatest trip we will ever take, the journey to Heaven. The preparation should be the most important thing on our minds. The first thing is salvation. No one enters Heaven without it. Then, daily Bible reading and prayer. A pure lifestyle is important, also. Are you ready for this trip?

John 3:16 For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.

Alabama SOS Events

April 22, 2019

Saturday was one of those days when you can sit back an marvel at God’s perfect timing. Beth and Wesley were delayed at the New Site Car Show and Trade Day until after 8 am because of rain. They set up the SOS Events Ministry tent and shared the Gospel with a very small amount of passersby due to the windy and rainy weather. After a few hours most people were leaving so they decided to call it a day.

God’s perfect timing. Beth needed to go to Foodland to grab a bell pepper for chilli and that was God’s Divine Appointment. Wesley got out and shared a tract with Montavius who was on his break (again perfect timing) and he wasn’t 100% sure that he was going to heaven. He asked Jesus Christ to be his Lord and Savior right in front of the store as people walked by. And the angels and heaven rejoiced over the one who was added to the Kingdom!!!

So as we know sometimes it is not about sharing with a lot of people it’s about God’s perfect timing and divine appointments he has set up for us . Thank you Lord for a rainy and windy day so we could be right where you needed us to be and for the Gospel to be shared to a open heart . This is what Montavius said after he prayed “After I prayed a heavy weight was lifted from my spirit. I feel all the love of God flowing all over me He is awesome!! ” This is what a tract handed out and a burden for the lost can do. It was a great day Serving Our Savior!!!

Proverbs 3:6 In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths.

Happy Resurrection Day

April 21, 2019

The Tomb is Sealed

April 20, 2019

Jesus is dead. The tomb is sealed. The disciples are in shock and grief. Is there no hope?

The days between the crucifixion and resurrection must have been really hard for the followers of Jesus. The One they had put their trust in, the One who was going to be King. Confused, sorrowful and disappointed they probably did nothing. Some waited together and others waited alone. People react differently when someone they love dies.

Today there are many people who have the same reaction to Jesus. Some doubt. Some do not believe in Him. Others reject Him. They do not realize what He can do for them.

Today is the day before Resurrection Sunday. Are you like these people or are you excited about tomorrow? The tomb did not stay sealed. The stone rolled away and JESUS arose. Let us celebrate the glorious resurrection not only tomorrow but everyday. JESUS lives…

Mark 16:6 And he saith unto them, Be not affrighted: Ye seek Jesus of Nazareth, which was crucified: he is risen; he is not here: behold the place where they laid him.

The Cross

April 19, 2019

John 19:17 & 18 And he bearing his cross went forth into a place called the place of a skull, which is called in the Hebrew Golgotha: Where they crucified him, and two other with him, on either side one, and Jesus in the midst.

John 19:30 When Jesus therefore had received the vinegar, he said, It is finished: and he bowed his head, and gave up the ghost.

Two Gardens

April 18, 2019

The Garden of Eden— where God put Adam and Eve to enjoy the pleasure of life and commune with Him….Until the devil tempted Adam and Eve and SIN entered into the lives of all mankind. From that moment on “all have sinned and come short of the glory of God.” That gave mankind no hope of going to Heaven without some payment for sin.

The Garden of Gethsemane— where JESUS went to pray. 3 times He asked His Father to remove the cup of wrath He was about to drink, but each time He submitted to the Father’s will. He was “exceedingly sorrowful unto death,” In this garden Jesus surrendered his earthly life to die on the cross for the sins of mankind. Jesus sacrifice was payment for our sin if we accept Him as our Savior.

JESUS is God.

John 1:14 And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, (and we beheld his glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father,) full of grace and truth.

Romans’ 10:9 – That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved.

Denial of Peter

April 17, 2019

What do you think of when you think of Simon Peter? Some of us think of him as he denied Jesus 3 times.

People could tell that he had been with Jesus, but he repeatedly said that he did not know Jesus. When the rooster crowed he remembered what Jesus had told him. “Verily I say unto thee, That this night, before the cock crow, thou shalt deny me thrice.”

He went out and wept bitterly.

Do we deny Jesus? No, we think not, but someone is sitting beside us while we wait for an appointment. Did we witness to them? A person comes up and asked us for money or directions. We help them but did we tell them about Jesus? We go on a “mission trip”, build a house or feed the poor, but we do not try to win them to Christ.

Do we deny Jesus? You decide. Peter became a great witness and soul winner after Jesus forgave him. Let us follow Peter and feed people spiritually with the gospel.

John 21:17 He saith unto him the third time, Simon, son of Jonas, lovest thou me? Peter was grieved because he said unto him the third time, Lovest thou me? And he said unto him, Lord, thou knowest all things; thou knowest that I love thee. Jesus saith unto him, Feed my sheep.

Judas Iscariot

April 16, 2019

He walked with Jesus. He saw the miracles. He was trusted enough to handle the money. Others did not see him as evil. JUDAS. A name that even today we think of betrayal. Greed, for 30 pieces of silver he was willing to betray the ONE who loved him.

We wonder how he could do such a horrible thing and yet, do we betray Jesus with our attitude, our indifference or our sin? When Jesus told the disciples that one would betray Him, each one asked, “Is it I?”

Let us ask ourselves, do I betray my Savior, Jesus, in any way? If so let us ask His forgiveness had love Him as He loved us.

Matthew 26:25

Then Judas, which betrayed him, answered and said, Master, is it I? He said unto him, Thou hast said.

SOS Events Workers

April 15, 2019

This couple is a vital part of SOS Events Ministry. Randy and Romona Thomas has been with the ministry for 5 years as missionaries. He is also Pastor of Griffin Baptist Church in Lakeland, Florida. SOS Events Ministry is blessed to have this couple on our team. They work at events and have enthusiasm for SOS Events, so that many other Christians now are volunteers to win souls at events also.

They have won countless souls to Jesus in the years they have been with the ministry. Their church is growing and vibrant.

They are an example of how God uses people to work with SOS Events. We are exceptionally grateful to have many people like Randy and Romona working with us in the ministry.

For we are labourers together with God: ye are God’s husbandry, ye are God’s building.
