True Worship

April 19, 2020

Most churches in the USA cannot hold services because of the coronavirus. The Bible tells us to “forsake not the assembly of ourselves together”, however that is not possible right now, but we do have many ways to see and hear great messages via media.

Remember, true worship is in our heart. Sunday is set aside for us to worship God. We can have fellowship with our Savior in a church, our home or wherever we happen to be. What greater opportunity than to have this time to truly worship Him in spirit and in truth.

A Special Verse for Today!

The Ice Cream Man

April 16, 2020


Mark Adams holds a special place in our hearts at SOS Events ministry. When he had a home in Florida, he would come over to the home office to “visit”.
One day he went out to the workshop where Tom (cofounder of SOS Events) and David were making displays.

Mark watched and said he had a better idea. Why not use metal shelf holders instead of wooden dowels to allow the doors to turn. That idea changed the way the displays were made and we use metal instead of wood today to make our displays.

Mark loved SOS Events and invited Tom and Carolyn to Kentucky to present SOS Events to his home church.

Mark was known as the “ ice cream man” in his hometown and took a SOS Events display board to witness to children when they came to buy ice cream.

We recently learned of his home going to Heaven. Jesus must have welcomed Mark. Well done thy good and faithful servant.

Psalm 116:15
Precious in the sight of the Lord is the death of his saints.

Words

April 15, 2020

In this difficult time, many of us are all living at home with family members 24/7. This is not our normal way of life. The adults would be going off to work, children going to school, church, and social activities would take up most of our time.

However, now we find ourselves together and if we are not careful with our words things can get out of hand. Restlessness and inactivity can cause tempers to flare. Fear, anxiety can cause us to say things we do not mean.

One little word can make a difference. Example: I love you or I hate you. One little word. Let us show love one to another even in this uncertain time.

A Good Neighbor

April 14, 2020

Yesterday the air conditioner stopped working in SOS Events office and workroom. It was so hot that work could not be done in that office.

One of the neighbors is an air conditioning service man, so he was called. His company only services big commercial buildings, but he was so gracious and came over in the evening after a hard days work.

He found that it was a switch that had shut the unit down and fixed it. He would take no money for his time, but we were able to pray with him for the needs of his family who are having some anxiety over the coronavirus.

Please pray for this family and other neighbors who may be having difficulty at this time.

Normal or Better

April 13, 2020

It is difficult to wait. We are waiting for the time when things get back to normal. When we can go to church, to the grocery store or to our favorite restaurant.

God tells us our strength will be renewed. Do we want things to go back to “normal” or do we want things to be better. Do we want to love Jesus more, appreciate what we have more, witness more, pray more.

Don’t wait to do those things, start now and truly our waiting will not be wasted. With God’s help our strength will be renewed and better than ever.

He Is Risen!

April 12, 2020

Low in the grave He lay—
Jesus my Savior!
Waiting the coming day—
Jesus my Lord!
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 watch His bed—
Jesus, my Savior!
Vainly they seal the dead—
Jesus my Lord!
3
Death cannot keep his prey—
Jesus, my Savior!
He tore the bars away—
Jesus my Lord!

This hymn says it all! Jesus arose! He is not dead! He is my Savior!

The Tomb Was Sealed

April 11, 2020

Jesus is dead. The tomb is sealed. The disciples are in shock and grief. Is there no hope?

The days between the crucifixion and resurrection must have been really hard for the followers of Jesus. The One they had put their trust in, the One who was going to be King. Confused, sorrowful and disappointed they probably did nothing. Some waited together and others waited alone. People react differently when someone they love dies.

Today there are many people who have the same reaction to Jesus. Some doubt. Some do not believe in Him. Others reject Him. They do not realize what He can do for them.

Today is the day before Resurrection Sunday. Are you like these people or are you excited about tomorrow? The tomb did not stay sealed. The stone rolled away and JESUS arose. Let us celebrate the glorious resurrection not only tomorrow but everyday. JESUS lives…

Mark 16:6 And he saith unto them, Be not affrighted: Ye seek Jesus of Nazareth, which was crucified: he is risen; he is not here: behold the place where they laid him.
