Our Words

November 30, 2017

An old saying, “Sticks and Stones can break my bones, but words can never hurt me.” This statement is totally untrue. Our words can encourage, uplift and help someone else, or they can deeply hurt and wound. Once spoken we cannot take them back. God tells us in his word to speak good words.

Trained Workers

November 29, 2017

All of the Trainers, team members and supporters with SOS Events Ministry are important. Teams from across the USA and beyond are a true blessing and hundreds of souls have come to Christ this year. On January 20, 2018 from 10-2 there will be a meeting of all Florida Trained Workers in Lakeland. This is a chance to meet the Key Leaders, the Board Members and hear a special speaker who will motivate us to Serve Our Savior with renewed excitement to win souls. If you are working with SOS Events and live outside of Florida you are more than welcome to attend. We do need an accurate number of people coming as lunch will be served so look at your calendar and let us know if you plan to attend. Call the office 813-494-7512 or email info@sosevents.org.

1 Corinthians 3:9 For we are labourers together with God: ye are God’s husbandry, ye are God’s building.

Love One Another

November 27, 2017

While many of us are preparing for a joyous Christmas Season, there are also many around us who are really hurting. For some it may be Christmas without someone they love who has died, for others it may be illness of a spouse or child that may end in death and then there are those people who are ill themselves or are lonely because they have no family or close friends. We need to look around and have compassion on those hurting people. A phone call, text message, card, visit or invitation to share your festivities may be just the thing that will help them get through the holiday season. And always keep them in your prayers. As Christians we need to love one another as Jesus commanded.

John 15:12 This is my commandment, That ye love one another, as I have loved you.

Those in Authority

November 14, 2017

Praise the Lord for the freedom of speech that we have in the United States of America. However, the mainstream media have taken politician bashing beyond a level that is good for our country. That includes local, state and national politicians no matter what party they belong too. As Christians, we should be praying for our political leaders rather than complaining and repeating rhetoric that may or may not be true. Today, join with us to pray for your local leaders, Governor, President and Vice President that they may have wisdom to govern with biblical principles and more importantly that they may be saved if they are not.

I Timothy 2:1-2 I exhort therefore, that, first of all, supplications, prayers, intercessions, and giving of thanks, be made for all men; For kings, and for all that are in authority; that we may lead a quiet and peaceable life in all godliness and honesty.

Humble and Committed 

November 12, 2017


Tom Curtis, founder of SOS Events Ministry, kept a daily journal with prayer requests and his thoughts about family, friends and Christian living. These journals are a blessing as we now have in his own handwriting his prayers and goals for the ministry.                                                  In a journal from the year 2000, before SOS Events was founded, there were two words he used to describe a successful Christian, especially a soul winner. They must be humble and committed. Traits that he displayed in his own life.                                                                             Let us take a lesson from a man who loved the Lord with all his heart and not only wrote encouraging words but lived them daily.

James 4:10 Humble yourselves in the sight of the Lord, and he shall lift you up.
2 Timothy 2:2 And the things that thou hast heard of me among many witnesses, the same commit thou to faithful men, who shall be able to teach others also.

Great Opportunity

October 31, 2017

You have an opportunity tonight, Halloween, to witness to people that come to your home for trick or treat. When you give out candy you can also give a gospel tract. Some of our SOS events partners are setting up the “3 things God cannot do” display in their yard. This has been very successful in the past. Not only for children but for their parents and teenagers. Do not let this opportunity to win souls pass you by.

Proverbs 11:30 The fruit of the righteous is a tree of life; and he that winneth souls is wise.

Do Something

October 24, 2017

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.

Pray With Us

October 23, 2017

Between now and November 4th, SOS Events Ministry has 16 Events just in Florida. That does not include the other states. Alabama, New York, Kentucky, Tennessee, New Jersey, Ohio, Indiana and others that have not checked in yet. Please pray with us for souls to be saved. Also, the volunteers who work at these events. Many are elderly, some have physical problems, the younger ones have jobs and families to look after, but their love for the Lord and their burden for souls is so great they come and work at events despite the obstacles. Please pray with us for these upcoming events.

Matthew 9:38 Pray ye therefore the Lord of the harvest, that he will send forth labourers into his harvest.

Fear

October 20, 2017

2 Timothy 1:7 For God hath not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind.

Friday the 13th

October 13, 2017

Blessed or bewitched? Some people are superstitious and believe that if the 13th day falls on Friday it is “unlucky”. This fear dates back to hundreds of years before Christ. The Bible tells us that everyday is blessed by God and we as Christians must trust Him. So today, Friday the 13th, praise the Lord for His goodness and blessings that He has given you. Go out today looking for something good to happen to you.

Psalms 145:2 Every day will I bless thee; and I will praise thy name for ever and ever.
