Pigz in Z’Hills

January 21, 2019

Most of the USA to the north of Florida is having cold weather, in Florida the days are sunny and warm. This past weekend, SOS Events had a booth at the Pigz in Z’Hills. An annual event that featured all kinds of food and fun.

In the picture above are four young people who trusted Jesus as their Savior. In the center is Alice, SOS Events Event Coordinator. She also, works most Events, schedules workers and keeps up correspondence with the many churches and volunteers. When anyone calls the main office it is usually Alice who answers the phone. What a blessing to have faithful workers, especially when they have a heart for winning souls to Christ.

Proverbs 11:30 The fruit of the righteous is a tree of life; and he that winneth souls is wise.

Sunday School

January 20, 2019

Sunday School isn’t just for kids. It is a time when we can learn more about Jesus and Christian living. We have opportunity to get to know people better and make lasting friendships. Don’t send your kids to Sunday School. Go with them and join in a class where you can grow in Christ.

2 Timothy 2:15 Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth.

Government

January 18, 2019

Today in the USA we see politicians , political parties, congressmen and women not able to come to agreement on several issues. The problem is not politics, the problem is the lack of wisdom from the source that could bring unity. Trust in God and decisions based on the Bible. The first President of the United States, George Washington, knew where to seek wisdom as he stated. If all of the people in government would seek the wisdom of God and stop the hate and fighting, we could see peace and unity once again.

As Christians it is our responsibility pray for our leaders, even if we do not agree with them or their agenda.

I Timothy 2:1&2 I exhort therefore, that, first of all, supplications, prayers, intercessions, and giving of thanks, be made for all men; For kings, and for all that are in authority; that we may lead a quiet and peaceable life in all godliness and honesty

Annual Meeting

January 17, 2019

SOS Events is preparing for the second Annual Meeting on February 2, at Gapway Baptist Church in Lakeland, Florida. It takes a lot of work, thought and preparation. Arrange for food, music, prizes, guest speaker and all the other things that will make this Meeting a success. But, what if after all that work, no one comes? That would be sad. The invitation to the meeting is extended to all volunteers and friends of SOS Events Ministry, But you must RSVP if you are coming.

There is Someone else who is making preparation for a great meeting. He is the Lord Jesus preparing a place in Heaven for you. What if you don’t come? There is an invitation sent to you. To accept the invitation, you must invite Jesus to be your Savior. Admit you are a sinner, repent of those sins, believe in Jesus death, burial and resurrection. You can then be ready for that great meeting in Heaven. Jesus said:

John 14:2 In my Father’s house are many mansions: if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you.

One Word- COMMIT

January 16, 2019

What a great way to begin a new year. Choose one word that will fit your situation and lifestyle and focus on that for the year. There have been many suggestions. Faith, love, commitment, trust and many more.

For SOS Events Ministry this year the word is commit. Commit to winning souls, train more workers , get new events, expand into new areas, but, most importantly commit to follow the Lord’s leading in everything we do.

You can help meet that goal. Pray for SOS Events regularity, give generously, volunteer to work in events, find new events for us and in your church or club arrange for one of SOS Events Leaders to come and present the ministry.

Psalms 37:5 Commit thy way unto the Lord; trust also in him; and he shall bring it to pass.

The Way to Start the Day

January 15, 2019

A reminder to start everyday with prayer. Jesus listens and answers the simplest of prayers. He wants to hear from us everyday.

Psalms 54:2 Hear my prayer, O God; give ear to the words of my mouth.

Seeds

January 14, 2019

Once in awhile, volunteers for SOS Events has a booth at an event and no one gets saved. That is unusual, but this past weekend that is what happened. We get discouraged until we remember that it is not us that wins the souls it is the Holy Spirit that draws them and convicts of sin. We never know what a tract, a word spoken or prayer will do. God blesses the seed of the Word in His timing. Praise the Lord for faithful witnesses. God will give the increase. We need to keep sowing the seeds.

1 Corinthians 3:7 So then neither is he that planteth any thing, neither he that watereth; but God that giveth the increase.

No Church Today?

January 13, 2019

There may be reasons you can’t go to church today. Illness, work or weather may prevent you from being in church. Many places in the Northern United States have cancelled church today because of snow, ice and dangerous driving conditions. If you cannot go use this time to gather round your family and read the Bible and pray together. If your are alone what a great opportunity to fellowship with the Lord without distractions.

A Pastor wrote on FB yesterday some good advice, if you stay home, don’t post your 10:30 trip to Walmart on Face Book. Whatever your circumstances today, take time to worship the Lord.

Psalms 29:2 Give unto the Lord the glory due unto his name; worship the Lord in the beauty of holiness.

The Internet

January 12, 2019

The internet can be a tool used by Satan to corrupt people’s minds, it can also be a great blessing. Everyday, when checking the stats on SOS Events blog, it is amazing how many people from other countries follow the posts. Everyday people from all over the world have opportunity to get a message from God, using this website. People from over 90 countries outside the USA have been encouraged. Many go to the Bible Studies or go to the home page to find out the 3 Things God Can Not Do.

This blog started many years ago, with posts only occasionally. Then as the response grew the posts became daily. Thank you to everyone who reads and follows this blog. Our prayer is that Christians grow in the Lord and the unsaved respond to the gospel and be born again. Thank the Lord, Jesus, for the Internet and the opportunity to witness to people all over the world without leaving the office.

Mark 16:15 And he said unto them, Go ye into all the world, and preach the gospel to every creature.
