Hang in There

January 17, 2020

There is a poster that hung in my office several years ago. It had a picture of a kitten hanging on a branch of a tree and the words were, ” Hang in there”

Today things sometimes look bleak and we get discouraged but the good news is that Jesus is with us in times of discouragement and He is coming soon. What a joy to know that we shall see Him face to face, if we know Him as our Savior.

Luke 21:28 And when these things begin to come to pass, then look up, and lift up your heads; for your redemption draweth nigh.

Faint Not

January 14, 2020

January is always an extremely busy month for the staff of SOS ministries. The office staff has end of the year reports to get finished, the shop has several projects to complete, there is preparation for the many events that take place in Florida in the winter and there are new people to be trained, some for event workers and some to be event leaders.

All this activity can cause us to get weary, but the Bible says we will reap if we faint not.

Why is all this activity so necessary? SOULS. All of the effort is with the goal in mind of winning many people to Christ.

The promise is in the verse. WE WILL REAP.

Galatians 6:9 And let us not be weary in well doing:for in due season we shall reap, if we faint not.

The Answer is in the BOOK

January 2, 2020

Every Christian needs to get alone with God everyday. Fifteen minutes a day can take you through the Bible in a year. It is not to late to start if you begin today. This is leap year, February has 29 days that will catch you up if you did not start on January first. (There are several yearly Bible reading plans on the web)

Some people read a Proverb a day, which is a wonderful place to seek wisdom. The Gospels, Matthew, Mark, Luke and John are the books to read to know Jesus better and learn more of His sacrifice for you. Interested in prophecy? Daniel and Revelation are the books for you. Whatever you need the answer is in the Book, the Bible.

Let God speak to you through His Word and then you will be able to speak to Him through prayer. 

Psalms 119:11 Thy word have I hid in mine heart, that I might not sin against thee.

Look to Jesus for a Good 2020!

December 31, 2019

New Years Eve 2019…Time to reflect on the year that is ending and look to the New Year ahead. Joys, sorrow, memories and lessons learned in 2019 are now behind. Tomorrow starts a New Year. Time to look forward. It is a good idea to set some goals. Lose weight, do a better job at work, get better grades in school, witness more, help others. Whatever your resolution, keep it. Many of us make resolutions or goals and by January 10th they are already forgotten. The only way to keep our resolutions is to ask Jesus for help and look to Him as our example.

The goal for SOS Events Ministry in 2020 is to win more people to Jesus, get more events in new areas, train more Christians to work at events and Serve Our Savior faithfully. You can help by praying, giving or volunteering. Let us make 2020 the best year ever.

Christmas is Past

December 30, 2019

Christmas is over, time to take down the beautiful decorations and keeping in our hearts the memories of Christmas 2019. It always makes me sad to put away those wonderful things that make Christmas special every year. As we put away the lights, tree, nativity sets, let us NOT put away the truth of Christmas, Jesus was born into this world to be our Savior, and it is our responsibility to tell others. So let us make a resolution to be better witnesses in 2020, and Serve Our Savior with more zeal than we ever had before.

Acts 26:22-23 Having therefore obtained help of God, I continue unto this day, witnessing both to small and great, saying none other things than those which the prophets and Moses did say should come. That Christ should suffer, and that he should be the first that should rise from the dead, and should shew light unto the people, and to the Gentiles.:

Your Gift For JESUS

December 23, 2019

Did you remember to get JESUS the gift He wants for Christmas? Many years ago, a little boy only two or three years old was in a Christmas program at a small church.

I have never forgotten the words this small child spoke on that day.

“I’m not very big

Nor very tall you see

but to the dear Lord Jesus

I give all of me.”

That small child is now a man an has given his life to the Lord working with children and influencing multitudes of lives to give their all to Jesus also.

Have you given all of you to Jesus?

Mark 10:21 Then Jesus beholding him loved him, and said unto him, One thing thou lackest:go thy way, sell whatsoever thou hast, and give to the poor, and thou shalt have treasure in heaven:and come, take up the cross, and follow me.

What Are You Doing?

November 19, 2019

“The only thing necessary for the triumph of evil, is for good men to do nothing.”

Great quote for the world we live in today. When contemplating what to put on the blog, this quote came to mind, but who first said it?

This is a good research project for you today. It is not scripture but a true saying for Christians.

Are you sitting back doing nothing? Content to sit in church and listen, but not going out and witnessing to your friends and neighbors. The conclusion, do something. Join SOS Events and learn how to be a witness for Christ.

John 9:4 I must work the works of him that sent me, while it is day: the night cometh, when no man can work.

Getting Ready To Go To Church

November 17, 2019

We wake up Sunday morning and have to prepare for worship physically but how often do we take the time to spiritually prepare ourselves before we even walk through the doors? The devil will try to distract us with all kinds of problems. It’s a simple thing to forget in the bustle of getting ready on a Sunday morning, but we need to be thankful going to church. There is a right way to show up on Sunday, but it can only happen if we start preparing our hearts before we even leave our homes.

Are you a “Fisherman”?

November 16, 2019

When you fail to study God’s Word, you stop growing. When you cease to grow spiritually, you start deteriorating immediately. When you stop climbing, you start slipping. You can never arrive spiritually in this life; there is always a higher plateau to be reached. One of those plateaus is personal evangelism. Jesus said, Follow me, and I will make you fishers of men. Soul winners are made, not born.

SOS Events can help you to become a spiritual fisherman, using the “3 Things God Can Not Do”. For more information go to the contact us on the home page.

Matthew 4:19 And he saith unto them, Follow me, and I will make you fishers of men.
