Pray for Power to Win Souls

March 31, 2018

While many people have started their Easter weekend celebrations today, there are some faithful SOS Events volunteers who are going to events to witness for the Lord Jesus. If you are busy with your own Easter preparations, please take time to pray for them and also that many souls will be saved today. Tomorrow many people will go to church that never go any other time of year. Pray for your Pastor and those who are witnesses to have power and that souls will be saved.

Acts 1:8 But ye shall receive power, after that the Holy Ghost is come upon you: and ye shall be witnesses unto me both in Jerusalem, and in all Judaea, and in Samaria, and unto the uttermost part of the earth.

STOP

March 30, 2018

Many of us will be busy preparing for a busy Easter weekend. Passover also starts this evening at sundown. This is the most “Holy”of all times of the year for Christians and Jews. However, unfortunately many will just look at it as a holiday to enjoy with family and friends, or maybe a weekend to get away from our everyday life. Never stopping to reflect on the true meaning of why we celebrate. Jesus Died, was Buried and Rose again. Today, Good Friday, as it is called, let us STOP and think of the suffering that JESUS endured on the cross to pay for our sins. All His pain and agony was for us. He deserves time to give Him all our praise and worship.

Matthew 16:21 From that time forth began Jesus to shew unto his disciples, how that he must go unto Jerusalem, and suffer many things of the elders and chief priests and scribes, and be killed, and be raised again the third day.

A Favorite Easter Hymn

March 29, 2018

During the Easter season of 1874, while having his devotions one evening, Robert Lowry was impressed with the events associated with Christ’s resurrection, especially with these words recorded in Luke 24:6, 7—He is not here, but is risen.

Soon Robert Lowry found himself seated at the little pump organ in the parlor of his home. And in a very spontaneous fashion, the words and music of “Christ Arose” gave expression to the thoughts that had been uppermost in his mind.

The hymn was published the following year and has been an inspirational favorite with God’s people ever since.

Christ Arose

(1) Low in the grave He lay,

Jesus, my Savior!

Waiting the coming day,

Jesus, my Lord!

CHO: Up from the grave He arose,

With a mighty triumph o’er His foes;

He arose a victor from the dark domain,

And He lives forever with His saints to reign;

He arose! He arose!

Hallelujah! Christ arose!

(2) Vainly they watched His bed,

Jesus, my Savior!

Vainly they sealed the dead,

Jesus my Lord!

(3) Death could not keep his prey,

Jesus my Savior!

He tore the bars away,

Jesus, my Lord!

Wednesday or Friday

March 28, 2018

The Bible says that Jesus was 3 days and 3 nights in the tomb before His resurrection. Biblical Scholars have different opinions of when He died. Some think Wednesday and others say Friday because time was calculated differently than our calendar today. Whenever you believe Jesus died, is not as important as you knowing and believing that Jesus died, was buried and rose again so that you might be saved. As Christians we can have different opinions about the times but we must agree to disagree “agreeably” and love one another.

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.

Full House

March 27, 2018

Have you ever decided to have company for dinner and invited a few people to come? Then a few more were in the neighborhood and you invited them also. Soon you had a houseful of guests. God wants His house to be full. That is why we should be witnesses. Many people do not get saved because we do not invite them. SOS Events Ministry teaches Christians how to invite others to be saved in a non confrontational way. This is Easter week.. invite someone to come to the Savior at this opportune time of year.

Luke 14:23 And the lord said unto the servant, Go out into the highways and hedges, and compel them to come in, that my house may be filled.

Forgiveness

March 26, 2018

Have you ever done something or said something you are truly sorry for? Maybe you hurt someone you love and need to ask forgiveness, but do not want to open that wound again. The Bible clearly states we need to forgive one another. In fact if a brother (another Christian) has hurt you, you are to go to them and ask their forgiveness. Somehow in our human minds that seems unfair, but think about our relationship to God. We have hurt Him many times, before salvation and especially after we have been saved. Disobedience, apathy and many other things too numerous to mention, and yet He in His love for us has forgiven us for ALL our sins. Let us show our love to Him by forgiving one another.

Mark 11:25 And when ye stand praying, forgive, if ye have ought against any: that your Father also which is in heaven may forgive you your trespasses

Newborn Christians

March 24, 2018

“Being a Christian is more than just an instantaneous conversion – it is a daily process whereby you grow to be more and more like Christ.” Billy Graham

Asking Jesus to be your Savior is just the beginning of the Christian life. That is why SOS Events Ministry sends every new convert Bible studies and gives their names to a local church. Newborn Christians need proper care to grow.

1 Peter 2:2 As newborn babes, desire the sincere milk of the word, that ye may grow thereby:

Preparing for Easter

March 23, 2018

Easter is a little over a week away and many are getting ready. The stores are full of candy, clothes and decorations for the Easter celebrations but very little if any have anything pointing to the true meaning of Easter. The death, burial and resurrection of The Lord and Savior, Jesus. As we prepare for time with family and friends for Easter, let us remember the true reason why we celebrate. Jesus resurrection is proof that there is life after death and we can be sure of eternal life if we accept Jesus as our Savior.

2 Timothy 1:10 But is now made manifest by the appearing of our Saviour Jesus Christ, who hath abolished death, and hath brought life and immortality to light through the gospel:
