It’s Time To Put On The Armor

September 17, 2021

We live in troubled times. Christian, it is time we stand up and be ready to fight against the evil that is over taking not only America but the world.

Our enemy, the devil is working to cause division in our families, our churches and in the workplace.

Jesus wants us to be strong and at the same time love one another. It almost seems like a contradiction, but it isn’t.

Jesus Himself was strong, yet, He always had love and compassion. His last words were, “Father, forgive them for they know not what they do.”

Is Jesus Lord Of Your Life?

August 28, 2021

You have Jesus as your Savior, but is He Lord of your life? Do you allow Him in all the areas in your life?

Seeking wisdom and knowledge of Jesus as Lord is very important if you are expecting to grow and be a successful Christian. Jesus wants to help you, direct you and be your Savior and Lord.

Trusting Jesus gives us entrance into the very presence of God. Jesus is KING of kings and LORD of lords.

Trust in God!

August 8, 2021

Many people, even Christians, are fearful. Illness, natural disasters, family problems and finances are all things that cause us to fear.

But God is real. He tells us to fear not. It is a matter of faith and trust. Faith comes by hearing and hearing is the Word of God.

We need to read the Bible everyday and meditate on what God tells us. Pray and tell Jesus our fears and concerns. Find fellowship with other believers. Listen to Pastors and teachers who present the truth.

Fear and confusion are not from God. Confess our fear to Him and He will bring peace.

114 Salvations in New York!

August 2, 2021

SOS Events volunteers reported 114 salvations at the 2 fairs held in Western New York State. 41 salvations at the Orleans County Fair and 73 at Genesee County Fair.

A special thank you to the volunteers who helped at both these events. Because the fairs were held at the same time, SOS Events volunteers were unable to be at either event as often as needed.

Truly, the opportunity was there for more people to be saved but SOS Events needed many more workers. Praise the Lord for the souls that were saved and hopefully next year many more Christians in that area will see the opportunity and volunteer to go and present the gospel.

Then saith he unto his disciples, The harvest truly is plenteous, but the labourers are few; Pray ye therefore the Lord of the harvest, that he will send forth labourers into his harvest. Matthew 9:37-38

The Great Commission

July 24, 2021

The biggest evil in the world are Christians who refuse to witness.
Jesus came to save the lost.

Going to church on Sunday, teaching Sunday school, doing good works is not the Great Commission.

The average person has at least 40 hours a week free time. Should we not use some of that time to tell someone about Jesus?
It is so simple. Hand out a tract while standing in a checkout line. Ask a person who called with a solicitation if they are sure of Heaven.

Everyone you come in contact with is an opportunity to witness.
The world is full of people who want to hear. Christian, we must tell them before it is too late.

SOS Ministry can teach you how to be an effective witness. Join with us today by watching the training videos.

Read Your Bible Everyday

July 20, 2021

Read your Bible.
Pray every day (repeat 3 times).
Read your Bible.
Pray every day.
And you’ll grow, grow, grow (repeat 3 times).
Read your Bible.
Pray every day.
And you’ll grow, grow, grow.

Don’t read your Bible.
Forget to pray (repeat 3 times).
Don’t read your Bible.
Forget to pray.
And you’ll shrink, shrink, shrink (repeat 3 times).
Don’t read your Bible.
Forget to pray.
And you’ll shrink, shrink, shrink.

I love this little kids song. I remember teaching it to my children and in Sunday School.

It may be a song for children, but the lesson is also great for adults. We grow in faith and our Christian walk when we read the Bible everyday. Remember, this is one of the ways GOD speaks to us. We grow closer to Him when we read and understand His Words.

All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness: 2 Timothy 3:16

What Can Man Do To Me?

July 16, 2021

What a great question. God tells us not to fear man, but that goes for every situation. When God is with us we have nothing to fear.

If you find yourself having fear, STOP. Remember God’s promises and ask Him to help you have faith.

How Is Your Vision?

July 15, 2021

Our vision is very important. To be able to see clearly is a blessing from God.

As we age our vision may become clouded. We may need glasses or even surgery to see clearly.

In our spiritual life we have the same problem. When we first become a new Christian our vision is clear. We want to obey God’s Word. We have a desire to see people saved.

Then we grow older in the faith and we get complacent. We are not as quick to do God’s will. We do not have a vision for people who are lost.

Are you loosing your spiritual vision? Ask God’s forgiveness and get clear vision again. Read the Bible daily and pray. Then use every opportunity to tell someone about Jesus. People are perishing without someone to tell them.

What a blessing to see clearly, both physically and spiritually.

Social Distancing

July 14, 2021

Everywhere we go the signs are still up. Stay 6 feet away from each other. In an elevator there was images of 4 sets of feet and a sign only 4 people in the elevator at a time. Are you social distancing?

The restrictions are being lifted in many places and there is different opinions on if these restrictions should be kept in place.

The one place that encourages us to get close is in God’s Word when He tells us to draw close to Him. No restrictions. Just call on Jesus and remember He is close to you at all times, if you have trusted Him as your Savior.

Psalms 73:28 – But it is good for me to draw near to God: I have put my trust in the Lord GOD, that I may declare all thy works.
