Christian Blessings

February 28, 2018

It is a blessing to be a Christian in many ways. We know the Lord Jesus and he will never leave us or forsake us. Then we have assurance of Heaven if we have trusted Him as our Savior. Our sins are forgiven. Also, another blessing is fellowship with other Christians. We meet another Christian for the first time and immediately there is a bond of friendship. If you have not accepted Christ, do it today and you can join in the many blessings that are too numerous to tell you here.

1 John 1:7 But if we walk in the light, as he is in the light, we have fellowship one with another, and the blood of Jesus Christ his Son cleanseth us from all sin.

Positive or Negative

February 27, 2018

Everyday we can make a choice to be happy, sad, peaceful or angry. Our attitude can make a difference in our lives but it also can have a good or bad influence on others. If we hear from someone and they are sharing good news it makes us happy but if we are around people who are negative it effects our attitude for the day. Let us decide to be a positive influence on people we are in contact with today. We can make their day.

Proverbs 15:13 A merry heart maketh a cheerful countenance: but by sorrow of the heart the spirit is broken.

Serving Our Savior

February 24, 2018

Many people ask what the meaning of SOS is, Serving Our Savior is what the letters stand for, but more importantly it is what the team members feel in their hearts.
The faithful servants who work with SOS have a sincere desire to see souls saved. Everyone from the office workers, maintenance men, volunteers, booth workers, and missionaries love the Lord with all their hearts and work tirelessly to see people get saved.
SOS Events a life saving ministry.

1 Thessalonians 1:3
Remembering without ceasing your work of faith, and labour of love, and patience of hope in our Lord Jesus Christ, in the sight of God and our Father;

Billy Graham Quote

February 23, 2018

“The moment we take our last breath on earth, we take our first in heaven.”

Billy Graham went home to meet his Savior this week and he will be missed. He was instrumental in thousands of people coming to the Lord.

2 Corinthians 5:8

We are confident, I say, and willing rather to be absent from the body, and to be present with the Lord.

The Scary Snake

February 22, 2018

There is a harmless black Snake that lives on the SOS Events property. He is about 5 ft long and can really frighten us if we come upon him suddenly. Yesterday, while transporting equipment to the Strawberry Festival to set up our display, we realized that the SOS Events van needed an oil change. We pulled into a fast oil change business and they took care of us right away. However, all of a sudden the young man under the van jumped out of the pit ( where the oil was drained). He started yelling and pointing under the van, “There’s a Cobra under the van.” A crowd of workers quickly appeared pointing to the van. Some were afraid, some thought it was funny and all of them wanted our van gone as soon as possible. They finished the job and even though we explained it was a harmless black snake they hurried as fast as possible to get it done. It reminds us that we do have a dangerous serpent, the devil, who will try to deceive us and cause us to sin. We should want him to be gone out of our lives as quickly as possible. The only One that can defeat him is Jesus.

Revelation 12:9 And the great dragon was cast out, that old serpent, called the Devil, and Satan, which deceiveth the whole world: he was cast out into the earth, and his angels were cast out with him.

SOS Events Teams

February 21, 2018

SOS Events has teams of people who love to win souls at events. In the State of Alabama there are several groups from different areas. The group pictured here is from the Montgomery area. One of the reasons Christians like SOS Events is that it is a team effort. There are always 3 or 4 people working together at an event. God blesses Christians who work together with one goal in mind, winning the lost to Jesus. All that is needed for a team is 3 or 4 people. Think of your friends and you can get a team together in your area. We will come and train you, provide the tools you need to be a witness for Christ.

1 Corinthians 3:9 For we are labourers together with God: ye are God’s husbandry, ye are God’s building.

Several trainings have taken place in Florida preparing for the annual Strawberry Festival. It is a blessing to see many people come to learn how to present the “3 Things God Can Not Do” this is a picture of a couple practicing at a recent training.  It is our responsibility to teach others how to be witnesses for Jesus Christ.

1 Timothy 4:11 These things command and teach.

President’s Day

February 19, 2018

Today, is Presidents’ Day in the USA. No matter what our political affiliation is, wherever we live or how we feel about our leaders in government, the Bible is very clear on what we need to do for those in authority. It is our responsibility to pray for them. If every Christian would pray for the President , Vice President, Congress, Governor and local leaders we would be doing what the Lord expects us to do. So the challenge today is to take just a few moments and pray for our leaders. There are many people from other countries that read this blog, and you also need to pray for your political leaders.

1 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.
