Friends

February 18, 2014

“Friends don’t let friends die without Jesus.”
Sign on a church billboard.

God Can Not Lie

Tom Curtis quote, “God cannot lie, so He could never run for president.”

Titus 1:2
In hope of eternal life, which God, that cannot lie, promised before the world began;

The First Day of the Week

February 16, 2014

Sunday, the first day of the week, the disciples came together to hear Paul preach. On this Lord’s Day my God bless you as you take time to worship Him. It is the day set aside for Christians to Honor our Lord and Savior, Jesus.
Let us clear our minds of worldly things today, and meditate on Him.

Acts 20:7
And upon the first day of the week, when the disciples came together to break bread, Paul preached unto them, ready to depart on the morrow; and continued his speech until midnight.

Oh How I Love Jesus

February 15, 2014

The song “Oh How I Love Jesus” was written in in the early 1855 when Frederick Whitfield was a student in England. The chorus was not part of the original song.
The chorus was written by an unknown American songwriter. The tune of the chorus was catchy and it was sung and added to many hymns until finally someone put the words of the two together and it became the song we know and love.
1 John 4:19
We love him, because he first loved us.

Happy Valentines Day

February 14, 2014

Today is a day set aside to show love to your sweetheart. It is a tradition started in the 5th century.
To some it is a day of happiness as they share their love as a couple, but to others it may be a day of hurt and sadness because of the loss of a spouse or loved one.
The good news is that we all have someone who loves us unconditionally and continually and His name is Jesus. He died in the cross that we might have forgiveness of sins and a home in Heaven.
If you have not received His great love, ask Him to forgive you of all your sin and invite Him into your heart and life.

1 John 4:16
And we have known and believed the love that God hath to us. God is love; and he that dwelleth in love dwelleth in God, and God in him

God Is Love

February 13, 2014

“God proved His love on the cross. When Christ hung and bled and died, it was God saying to the world, “I love you.”
Billy Graham

1 John 4:10
Herein is love, not that we loved God, but that he loved us, and sent his Son to be the propitiation for our sins.

A Friend of God

February 12, 2014

There is a song that keeps going through my mind today, “I am a friend of God”. I know that I am a child of God and a servant of God, but to be called a friend of God is the ultimate relationship that I desire.
One of the definitions in the dictionary is: “a favored companion”.
Are you a friend of God?
SOS Events Ministry

James 2:23
And the scripture was fulfilled which saith, Abraham believed God, and it was imputed unto him for righteousness:and he was called the Friend of God.

The Greatest Love

February 11, 2014

February is the month of love. Ads on TV, displays in stores, hearts everywhere. The greatest love ever shown to man is God’s love when he sent Jesus to die on the cross for our sins.
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.

Well Done

February 10, 2014

Most churches have so much more money and resources than
SOS Events ministries yet very few if any salvations.
When SOS servants stand Before GOD, AND GOD asks who did you
bring with you. We can smile. God knows all.

Matthew 25:23
His lord said unto him, Well done, good and faithful servant; thou hast been faithful over a few things, I will make thee ruler over many things:enter thou into the joy of thy lord.

Amazing Grace

February 9, 2014

The beautiful hymn that many of us know and love was written by John Newton in the year 1779.
It is really the story of his life. He was in the British Navy and fell into a life of sin. At one point even contemplated suicide.
His life went on, however, and he faced many trials and storms both in his life and on the seas.
One night in 1778, a huge storm battered the ship and all the sailors thought it was the end.
John cried out to God that night and God saved him.
He became a great preacher, evangelist and song writer.
It IS AMAZING that this hymn has survived all these years and still has power to move the hearts of men and women today.

Ephesians 1:7
In whom we have redemption through his blood, the forgiveness of sins, according to the riches of his grace;
