Power to Witness

July 31, 2020

God sent the Holy Spirit to give us the power to witness and win souls. With most events closed due to the coronavirus, we need to be more diligent to look for opportunities to witness.

It is not the command to the pastor in the church. It is not a time for ministries like SOS Events to forget about soul winning.

God expects all Christians to be a witness for Him. Are you using the power God gave you?

God Blesses Again

July 30, 2020

God blessed SOS Events Ministry with this weekly event where volunteers can go and witness to people walking by. When most events all over the USA are closed or cancelled God has blessed to keep this Flea Market open and people come.

This week at the Plant City Flea Marker, God once again blessed the SOS Events workers with 21 people who decided to accept Jesus as their Savior. To God be the Glory.

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.

Yourself or God

The next verse tells us, it is not of works: Not of works, lest any man should boast.

The Cure For Shot Nerves

July 28, 2020

Thinking of something to encourage those who read this blog, I chose a book on hymns, “Then Sings My Soul” by Robert J. Morgan.
He wrote a forward “The Cure For Shot Nerves”. Thinking that is a catchy title, I read what he wrote about how the old hymns can calm the spirit and help bring peace to the soul.

It is rare in some churches to even hear the old hymns anymore and that is sad.
“In the Garden” He walks with me/ and He talks with me/ and tells me I am His own.
“Jesus Loves Me”, “Amazing Grace”, “I Need Thee Every Hour” and many more that encourage the heart.

Today, if you are stressed, feeling overwhelmed, or just plan discouraged, think of your favorite hymn and sing it, hum it or just let it flood your mind with how good God is, and soon you will find the comfort you need.

The “Nevers“ of Life

July 27, 2020

Do you feel like you have many “nevers” in your life?

This coronavirus will never be over.

I will never find a job.

This loneliness will never go away.

God never answers my prayers.

Good news. Read this Bible verse. One of many in God’s Word that gives us precious promises and hope. God is faithful. Will NEVER leave us or forsake us. Just trust Him and He will answer in His perfect timing.

The Solid Foundation

July 26, 2020

Jesus is the only foundation on which our church, home, ministry and government should be laid.

As we think about our worship today, if we are physically going to church or joining virtually, we need to make sure that the foundation of where we worship is Jesus.

It is our responsibility as Christians to make sure Jesus is the sure foundation in every area of our lives.

Our World In Chaos!

July 25, 2020

There is an answer. It is found in the Bible.

2 Chronicles 7:14

If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.

Pray For One Another

July 24, 2020

You may feel like the one who is about to fall into the hole, or you are helping to carry your friend, neighbor and fellow Christian. At this time of uncertainty and confusion, we need lift one another in prayer.

Cease not to give thanks for you, making mention of you in my prayers;
Ephesians 1:16

-I exhort therefore, that, first of all, supplications, prayers, intercessions, [and] giving of thanks, be made for all men. 1 Timothy 2:1

15 Souls Saved At Flea Market

July 23, 2020
Bert, Bertie and Richard at the Plant City, FL Flea Market

Praise the Lord for His many blessings.

The Plant City Flea Market is open on Wednesdays.

He blesses SOS Events with many faithful workers. Alice, who sets up every week very early in the morning. Richard, who is taking off on Wednesdays and working on Saturdays to be able to witness at the Flea Market. Bert and Bernie who are new volunteers and worked for the first time. And many others who volunteer for events.

Praise the Lord for the 15 people who trusted Jesus as their Savior. One young man could not wait for a Bible Study to be sent in a week or two. Alice came back to the home office and mailed him a copy of the simple Bible Studies in John. He will receive them within a day.

Psalms 9:1 I will praise thee, O Lord, with my whole heart;
I will shew forth all thy marvellous works.

Our Changing World

July 22, 2020

Our world has changed for everyone. It has become the “normal” thing to wear masks wherever we go.

A year ago, we would never see a bride and groom wearing face coverings at their wedding.

When our world turns upside down and everything changes, there is one thing that never changes. God’s love for us. Jesus is the same yesterday, today and forever,

Hebrews 13:8 – Jesus Christ the same yesterday, and to day, and for ever.

The bride and groom in this photo are Carolyn Curtis grandson and his new bride.
