Bible Reading

July 17, 2018

A little humor for you today, with a lesson. It is important to read your Bible and communicate with God daily. He will give you direction, wisdom, and answers to life’s problems in His Word.

Psalms 119:105 Thy word is a lamp unto my feet, and a light unto my path.

Fresh Start

April 21, 2018

There’s something about starting the day off studying God’s Word, whether it be the opened pages of the Bible or the push of a button on your device.  Meditating and making notes as to hide His Words in your heart for use that day.

II Timothy 2:15 says, “Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth.”

Newborn Christian

March 14, 2018

Do you know someone who has been saved recently? That new Christian needs to be cared for and nurtured just as we care for a newborn baby. Babies are totally dependent on us to feed, clothe and keep them safe. New Christians depend on us to care for them also. Everything is new to them. They have no knowledge of the scripture. They may have fear of going to a new church or Bible study group. It is our responsibility as a mature Christians to guide and care for them. SOS Events sends each new Christian a Bible Study an prays for them but they need more than that to grow. Please pray with us that each one will have a spiritual caregiver.

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

5 Questions

January 12, 2018

Five questions to ask yourself when studying God’s Word from Pastor Jonathan Watson in Appomattox, VA:

“Simple questions I try to ask myself every time I study God’s Word.”

– Is there a sin I need to confess?

– Is there a promise I can claim?

– Is there an attitude I need to change?

– Is there a command I need to obey?

– Is there an example I can follow?

Hebrews 4:12 For the word of God is quick, and powerful, and sharper than any twoedged sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit, and of the joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart.

Great and Mighty Things

August 29, 2017

What a joy to see that people from around the world are taking advantage of SOS Events website and especially this blog. As of this morning people from 79 countries outside the USA have visited the site. What an opportunity to study God’s Word with the Bible studies. Salvation is presented clearly on the home page for the unsaved. People praying for SOS Events from all over the world is a great blessing. When this Ministry was founded in 2001 with just two ordinary people, we never expected to see it grow to influence not only the USA but many countries around the world. To God be the glory. 

Jeremiah 33:3 Call unto me, and I will answer thee, and shew thee great and mighty things, which thou knowest not.

Read the Bible, It was written just for you!

2 Timothy 2:15 Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth.

April Fool’s Day

April 1, 2017

Today is April 1, and many people love to play pranks on others. All in fun. The Bible talks a lot about fools.  62 times the word fool is mentioned. Plus many more words like foolish, foolishly and more. It is a good Bible word study. The most recognized verse follows:

Psalms 14:1 The fool hath said in his heart, There is no God. They are corrupt, they have done abominable works, there is none that doeth good.

Salt and Light

February 12, 2017

Matthew 5 is about being distinct in character. How a Christian is to be clearly different from this world, noticeably different in a good way. This particular teaching was coming from the mouth of Jesus Himself. He not only said how we are to be distinct, but when we are, we are blessed with a true happiness & peace that only God gives. Plus He tells what we would obtain for being distinct. We are called to be the salt of the earth and the light of the world. Christ urges us to be a good example. I challenge you to read Matthew chapter 5 and be determined to be distinct in this world and watch for your blessings.

Matthew 5:13-16 (KJV) Ye are the salt of the earth: but if the salt have lost his savour, wherewith shall it be salted? it is thenceforth good for nothing, but to be cast out, and to be trodden under foot of men. Ye are the light of the world. A city that is set on an hill cannot be hid. Neither do men light a candle, and put it under a bushel, but on a candlestick; and it giveth light unto all that are in the house. Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father which is in heaven.

My Sheep Hear My Voice

February 9, 2017

“My sheep hear my voice” is what the scripture says, not “my sheep can hear My voice” or “My sheep should hear My voice” but that they do hear His voice. Note also that God directs His voice to His sheep. He doesn’t say “My intelligent follower”, or “the popular or kind”. No, He says, “My sheep”. The sheep knows the sound, the inflection, of its shepherd’s voice. So we are to know the voice of God in our life as a Christian. How does God speak to us, His sheep? Clearly He speaks through His Word. Read it, study it, and listen to it.

John 10:3b (KJV) “…the sheep hear his voice: and he calleth his own sheep by name, and leadeth them… “

John 10:14 (KJV) “I am the good shepherd, and know my sheep, and am known of mine.”

Transformation

February 6, 2017

Being willing to let the Lord change us is an important part of our growth. In Romans 12:1-2, God tells us three things on how we can partner with Him for internal and external change. 1) Present your life, your work and your ministry to Him, 2) Don’t follow the pattern of the world, as you might miss out on the radical changes He wants for you and 3) Renew your mind. This can be done by staying in the Scriptures and praying.

Romans 12:1-2 (KJV) And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect will of God.
