February 19, 2019

Have you ever tried to book an airline flight and have had nothing but problems, trying to get from one place to another? That may be a problem, but the Good News is than getting a “ticket” to Heaven is so simple.

A. Admit you are a sinner. For all have sinned and come short of the glory of God. Romans 3:23

B. 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.”  Romans 10:9

C. Call upon the name of the Lord. “For whosoever (you) shall call upon the name of the Lord, shall be saved.”  Romans 10:13

If you have not booked your “ticket” to Heaven, do it today.

A Shocking 47% Of Millennials Say Evangelism Is Wrong

A Shocking 47% Of Millennials Say Evangelism Is Wrong. Relevant Magazine

“Almost half of Millennials (47%) agree at least somewhat that it is wrong to share one’s personal beliefs with someone of a different faith in hopes that they will one day share the same faith.”

The article said they believe in Jesus, but do not think we should share the Gospel with others. Christians, we must reach not only the lost millennials (ages 18-35), but we must teach our Christian young people that the Jesus they follow commanded us to spread the gospel. A whole generation and generations to follow will be lost if we do not do more to reach them.

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

George Washington Quote

February 9, 2019

America was founded by men who loved God and believed in Jesus and that we should have freedom OF religion, not freedom FROM religion. They also believed that the Bible, God’s Word, should be taught in schools, churches and at home. What a long way America has come since then. When prayer and the Bible was taken out of the schools and public gatherings the great moral decline of the USA began. Christians did not stand up and protest enough. Materialism and complacency took over for many Christians. Is it too late? That is up to us.

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.

Power

February 5, 2019

Electricity is so important to our way of living that if the power goes out we have a problem functioning. The SOS Events office was closed yesterday and today because of electrical problems that needed to be resolved. The whole property including 2 offices, workshop and Curtis home was without electricity. No work could be done so nothing was accomplished.

As Christians we have a source of Power in our lives to get things done. That Power is the Holy Spirit. Sometimes, the power gets shut off because of sin, indifference or disobedience. Spiritually, nothing gets done. No souls are won because we don’t witness, prayers are not answered because we don’t pray and the worst thing,we have no fellowship with our Savior, Jesus. If our Power is damaged, let’s get it repaired. Repent and renew our relationship with the Lord. Ask His forgiveness. He is waiting to restore the Power in our lives.

Romans 15:13 Now the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing, that ye may abound in hope, through the power of the Holy Ghost.

Acts 1:8 But ye shall receive power, after that the Holy Ghost is come upon you: and ye shall be witnesses unto me both in Jerusalem, and in all Judaea, and in Samaria, and unto the uttermost part of the earth.

January Ends

January 31, 2019

How was your month? Most of us have had many days of cold weather and our soul winning opportunities were few. Do not be discouraged. It is a great time to plan for warmer weather. Looking for future events? Look on line to your local Chamber of Commerce. Many events are free or of low cost to a non profit organization. SOS Events qualifies. You have to go shopping, hand out a tract or witness to the person in the checkout line. When you mail a letter, put a tract in it. Witness whenever and wherever you can. February starts tomorrow. New month, new opportunities. Let us spread the message of God’s love.

1 John 4:9 In this was manifested the love of God toward us, because that God sent his only begotten Son into the world, that we might live through him.

Tracts

January 30, 2019

Tracts are very effective. Many Christians have been saved reading a tract, either along with someone witnessing or them or picking one up and reading it on their own. Carolyn Curtis is a good example. She was given a tract the morning she was on the way to Niagara Falls to end her life. While getting up the courage to jump in, she read the tract, prayed the prayer on the back and was gloriously saved. Since that time many have come to the Lord through her witness. One tract can change a life. You can be the one to give a tract to someone in person, leave one in the restroom at a store restaurant or any public place. Put one in a library book, in a shoe box at a shoe store. Be creative. Think of a place to leave a tract and pray someone will find it who needs the Lord. It is a life changing opportunity.

Isaiah 55:11 So shall my word be that goeth forth out of my mouth: it shall not return unto me void, but it shall accomplish that which I please, and it shall prosper in the thing whereto I sent it.

Stormy Days

January 28, 2019

On a cold stormy day, we do not feel like doing anything but stay inside, wrap in a warm fuzzy blanket and do nothing. When storms of life happen, we feel the same way. Just stay inside, wrap up in our sorrow and pain and do nothing. Our attitude reflects the storm, however, God tells us to behave differently in those circumstances. He is with us, will not forsake us and gives us the strength to go on to serve Him.

Isaiah 49:10 Fear thou not; for I am with thee: be not dismayed; for I am thy God: I will strengthen thee; yea, I will help thee; yea, I will uphold thee with the right hand of my righteousness.

Psalms 50:15 And call upon me in the day of trouble: I will deliver thee, and thou shalt glorify me.

Psalms 138:8 The LORD will perfect that which concerneth me: thy mercy, O LORD, endureth for ever: forsake not the works of thine own hands.

Pray for Your Pastor

Pastors need our prayers and encouragement. Lift you Pastor up today with prayer and a good word.

Hebrews 13:17 Obey them that have the rule over you, and submit yourselves: for they watch for your souls, as they that must give account, that they may do it with joy, and not with grief: for that is unprofitable for you.
