God Forgives Sin

January 31, 2022

Intimacy with God requires a repentant heart. In His love, God says when we confess our sin, He is faithful and just to cleanse us. That cleansing restores our fellowship with Him.

God hates sin because He is Holy and Righteous. Sin is anything we have done that God has commanded us not to do.

All have sinned and come short. You can watch a small child only months old and already they are sinners. Selfishness and disobedience. They will be playing and grab a toy from another child, hit or bite.

Jesus paid the penalty for all our sins if we by faith ask His forgiveness, repent of our sin and put our trust in Him.

God is Faithful!

January 30, 2022

Do we deserve God’s mercy? NO!

We are all sinners, not seeking God. But, He has great love for us, He sent Jesus to die on the cross, be buried and 3 days later Jesus arose from the dead, to pay the penalty for our sin.

If we accept Jesus as our Savior, then GOD shows His mercy toward us and we are born again.

Great is God’s faithfulness!

God’s Children!

January 29, 2022

God created us, but we are not His children until we are born into His family. Jesus said, “Ye must be born again.”

How? You may be asking. First, Admit you have sinned. For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God;

Believe on the Lord Jesus. That if thou shall confess with thy mouth and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised Him (Jesus) from the dead, thou shalt be saved.

Call upon the Lord. For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.

When we have trusted Jesus as our Savior, the Holy Spirit comes into our heart (spirit) and we are born again.

We are then joint heirs with Jesus! Sure of Heaven and all the wonders that will be ours.

People Watching

January 28, 2022

Do you like to watch people?

Some are tall, others short, some thin others heavy.

We see the mothers with small children to the elderly which have a hard time getting around. People of all colors, from the very fair skin to the darkest golden brown.

Some dress in expensive clothing while others are tattered, and some wear hardly any clothes at all. What a variety of people on the earth and God gave life to them all.

However, that He gave them life at birth does not mean they will live with Him in Heaven for all eternity. To get to Heaven no matter what their status on earth they (and you) must be born again.

John 3:3 Jesus answered and said unto him, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God.

Every Christian has a commitment to tell others how they can be saved. Jesus tells us to go.

If you are in the Tampa, Florida area you have the opportunity to learn how to witness.

SOS Events Ministry will train you to go soul winning at events, to your family and your neighbor.

If you are out of the area, SOS Events has Trainers in 10 States. Call the home office for more information.

Also, there are some training videos online. The “3 Things God Can Not Do” is a simple way to present the gospel at an event or individually as you’re talking to your friends, family or acquaintances.

Mark 16:15
And he said unto them, Go ye into all the world, and preach the gospel to every creature.

A Good Thing To Know At Any Age! Jesus Loves Me!

January 26, 2022

A church in Atlanta was honoring one of its senior pastors who had been retired many years. He was 92 at that time and I wondered why the church even bothered to ask the old gentleman to preach at that age.

After a warm welcome, introduction of this speaker, and as the applause quieted down, he rose from his high back chair and walked slowly, with great effort and a sliding gait to the podium.

Without a note or written paper of any kind he placed both hands on the pulpit to steady himself and then quietly and slowly he began to speak….

“When I was asked to come here today and talk to you, your pastor asked me to tell you what was the greatest lesson ever learned in my 50-odd years of preaching. I thought about it for a few days and boiled it down to just one thing that made the most difference in my life and sustained me through all my trials. The one thing that I could always rely on when tears and heartbreak and pain and fear and sorrow paralyzed me…

The only thing that would comfort was this verse….

“Jesus loves me this I know.
For the Bible tells me so.
Little ones to Him belong,
We are weak but He is strong…..
Yes, Jesus loves me….
The Bible tells me so.”

The old pastor stated, “I always noticed that it was the adults who chose the children’s hymn ‘Jesus Loves Me’ (for the children of course) during a hymn sing, and it was the adults who sang the loudest because I could see they knew it the best.”

“Here for you now is a Senior version of Jesus Loves Me”:

Jesus loves me, this I know,
Though my hair is white as snow
Though my sight is growing dim,
Still He bids me trust in Him.

Though my steps are oh, so slow,
With my hand in His I’ll go
On through life, let come what may,
He’ll be there to lead the way.

(verse 2)
When the nights are dark and long,
In my heart He puts a song..
Telling me in words so clear,
“Have no fear, for I am near.”

(Verse 3)
When my work on earth is done,
And life’s victories have been won.
He will take me home above,
Then I’ll understand His love.

I love Jesus, does He know?
Have I ever told Him so?
Jesus loves to hear me say,
That I love Him every day.

“As the Father hath loved me, so have I loved you: continue ye in my love.” John 15:9

God’s Promises

January 25, 2022

The way the world is today, we wonder why God allows sin, wars, murders and all kind of evil to continue.

God wants all people to be saved. He is long suffering so everyone has opportunity to hear the gospel.

However, the time will come when He will be done and the door will shut and you will no longer be able to come to know Jesus. If you have not made the decision to accept Jesus as your Savior, do it today before it’s too late.

If you are a Christian it is your responsibility to be a witness to others. Do you want to stand before GOD empty handed?

SOSEvents Ministry has influence outside the USA with social media and the blog.

It is extremely encouraging to have people from many different Countries get on the blog and have opportunity to get the Gospel as well as access to Bible Studies and helpful tools to grow in their relationship to God.

Thank you to those people who are reading this even now. My prayer is for many salvations and spiritual growth for you.

Why Do You Go To Church?

January 23, 2022

Hebrews 2:12 Saying, I will declare thy name unto my brethren, in the midst of the church will I sing praise unto thee.

What do you hear when you go to church? Music that honors the Lord or music that is about you?

Preaching that makes you feel good or preaching that steps on your toes and puts you under conviction?

Do you go to church because it is the thing to do and will give you prestige or you go because you truly want to worship God?

Hard questions, but think about the church you attend and why you are going there.
