Testimony and Invitation

July 21, 2015

When I was 12 years old, the pastor came to our house to ask if I would be baptized with my sister and cousin as they didn’t want to do that without me. He asked me if I ever asked Jesus in my heart and I told him no, but I would be baptized so my sister and cousin would. The pastor told me to come down the isle Sunday and someone would pray with me then they would schedule the baptism. SO I did, and I prayed only to do what I needed to do so my sister and cousin would be baptized. Years later, I questioned my salvation because it wasn’t of my own will that sought Jesus but out of duty. I did not come to Jesus until I was 18. Yes, I can give you dates, times and places but I do know that the first time I prayed was not real, it was not me seeking Jesus but the approval to get baptized. Diana

If you are not 100% sure when you die you would go to heaven, you need to make sure of yourself salvation.

You must admit you are a sinner. Romans 3:23 For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God;

Believe that Jesus died on the cross, was buried, and rose again. 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.

Then call upon the name of the Lord. Romans 10:13 For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.

Lord Jesus, I admit I am a sinner. I believe you died on the cross for forgiveness of my sins. I ask that you forgive my sins, come into my heart and make my life new. I receive you as my Savior. Thank you Jesus. Amen

Look to Jesus

At Calvary

July 18, 2015

There are so many new worship songs sung in churches today, that some of the great old hymns are being overlooked.

At Calvary is one of the great old hymns.

“Calvary” means, the place of the skull. It is a place that is visited by thousands of Christian pilgrims each year, and it is the place where our Lord and Savior’s life was given to pay the penalty for our sin. The author, William Newell, was contemplating what this meant on the way to teach one of his many Bible classes.

As soon as he reached an empty classroom, he wrote them down on the back of an envelope. The words used today are these same words written in those moments. Then he met Daniel Towner, the Director of Music, and asked if he could try to put a tune to the words. After teaching his class, the two met up and the tune had already been written, so they sang it together. It was then first published in 1895.
Years I spent in vanity and pride, 

caring not my Lord was crucified, 

knowing not it was for me He died on 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 giv’n to Jesus ev’rything; 

now I gladly own Him as my King; 

now my raptured soul can only sing of Calvary.

O the love that drew salvation’s plan! 

O the grace that bro’t it down to man! 

O the mighty gulf that God did span at Calvary!

Chorus: 

Mercy there was great, and grace was free; 

pardon there was multiplied to me. 

There my burdened soul found liberty—at Calvary.

SOS Events Blessings

July 14, 2015

A woman from Mississippi, Theresa, was looking for some Bible studies when she came across SOS Events website. She was so excited to find a soul winning ministry that she called the office for more information. It was a joy return her call and encourage her to get her Pastor and people from her church to get SOS training and take the “3 Things God Can Not Do” to the Biloxi, MS area. There are tentative plans to have training in the Fall.It is exciting to watch the Lord at work growing the ministry. Several times in the last month SOS has been contacted by people who have seen something about this ministry on line, at an event or talking to one of our workers that have caused them to get information about SOS Events. Please continue to pray that many more will get involved winning soul to Christ. The time for witnessing may be short.
Proverbs 11:30 The fruit of the righteous is a tree of life; and he that winneth souls is wise.

Spiritual Fruit

July 13, 2015

“God expects spiritual fruit, not religious nuts.” 

A little humor for the beginning of a new workweek. Do you have spiritual fruit?

Galatians 5:22 But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith, Meekness, temperance: against such there is no law

Spanish Blessings

July 12, 2015

Pastor Romero took a group from the Spanish church in Lakeland to a convention in Dothan Ga.  Members from approximately 50 churches attended. Everyone is excited about the souls being saved using the “3 Things God Can Not Do” in Spanish. Fifty or more souls are coming to the Lord each week in Flea Markets in Lakeland and Plant City, FL.

All the Glory goes to the Lord who saves them. The Bible says: John 12:32
And I, if I be lifted up from the earth, will draw all men unto me.
