Looking For A Blessing?

January 15, 2022

Do you need to be encouraged today? Looking for something to lift your spirits?

Search You Tube for some old hymns. Listen and sing along.

“The Old Rugged Cross”. “Victory In Jesus”. “Great Is Thy Faithfulness” “How Great Thou Art” “When We All Get To Heaven”. There are many more hymns and spiritual songs that are being forgotten.

The Bible tells us to sing unto the Lord. It is hard to be discouraged when we are singing, especially those songs that have meaning and honor the name of Jesus.

Faith Over Fear

January 6, 2022

It is hard to believe that we are still having the coronavirus around for over 2 years. This has caused much division in our country, workplaces and even among families. It is time to put our trust in the Lord, and ask Him to heal our differences as well as this disease.

As Christians we need to take reasonable precautions, however, we do not need to be overwhelmed by fear and frustration. God promises to protect His children. Let us put our trust in Jesus, our Savior and give Him all of our fear no matter what the circumstances.

Mew Year’s Eve

December 31, 2021

Many people will be celebrating New Year’s Eve tonight drinking, going to parties, etc., only to start the New Year with a headache and hangover. We can start our New Year with a clean heart.

Christians take time this evening to pray for forgiveness for the unconfessed sins that we have committed. If you have never accepted Jesus as your Savior there is no better way to start a new year than becoming a new person in Christ. Happy New Year. May 2022 bring you and your loved ones peace and joy that only the Lord can give.

2 Corinthians 5:17 Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new.

December 30, 2021

Christmas is over, time to take down the beautiful decorations and keeping in our hearts the memories of Christmas 2021. 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 2022 and Serve Our Savior with more zeal than we ever had before.

Witnessing is a little more difficult because of the restrictions in some areas, but we can make phone calls, write notes and use social media to be a witness for the Lord. Be creative. Think of someone today who needs the Lord and pray for him or her, and then contact them. People need the Lord now more than ever.

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 Gentil

Christmas Stockings

December 14, 2021

If you think about it, it’s a bit strange for someone to put goodies in an old sock. But like many Christmas traditions, the tradition of Christmas stockings comes from an old legend.

A long time ago (so the story goes), a poor man had three daughters and couldn’t afford to give them a dowry (money or goods given to the groom’s family by the bride’s family). In those days, it was very hard for a woman to get married without a dowry. A Christian bishop named Nicholas heard about the problem and wanted to help, but the man refused to accept money. One night, Nicholas threw three balls made of pure gold in through the open window of the man’s house. Each one landed in a stocking hung by the fire to dry. The next morning, each daughter found a gold ball in her stocking. With this bounty, they were all able to get married.

Stockings can remind us of the importance of service. The greatest example of service is Jesus Christ. He always “went about doing good” (Acts 10:38).

Take some time to think about the Savior’s selfless acts of service. How can you give Christlike service and show kindness to others this Christmas Season?

Galatians 6:10 As we have therefore opportunity, let us do good unto all men, especially unto them who are of the household of faith.

December is Here!

December 1, 2021

What a wonderful verse to start with for the month of December! God does supply all our needs.

Some people have abundance of money and material things. Others have very little. The Christmas season is a time for giving. It is not the cost of the gifts, it is the gift given from the heart that counts.

A phone call, letter or an invitation for a meal can mean more than the most expensive present in the world. Your time with your friends and family is the most meaningful gift you can give.

God wants the same thing. You can give a large offering, go to church or do some charity work, but the most important thing you can give to God is time to read His word, pray and then tell someone else about His special gift, the Lord Jesus.

Thankful for Old Hymns

November 23, 2021

The old hymns honor God. The melody is beautiful.

New songs sometimes miss the mark because the name of Jesus is not even mentioned. Some of them could be talking about anyone, a friend or spouse.

Let us be sure as we sing that the message in the song is true to the Bible.

Enjoy a verity of music but don’t forget the old hymns that truly honor our Savior.

Ephesians 5:19 – Speaking to yourselves in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing and making melody in your heart to the Lord.

Thankful For Christian Friends

November 20, 2021

There is a special bond between other Christians and ourselves. We have a wonderful family that may not be our physical relatives, but are spiritual brothers and sisters in Christ.

Today, be thankful for your Christian friends. Pray for them, encourage them and most of all show love to them. We are blessed to have Godly friends.

Good Morning!

November 4, 2021

Most of us start our day with a cup of coffee. The most important way to start our mornings though, is to spend it with Jesus. We must not neglect to read His Word and pray. That is a perfect way to start our day along with the coffee.

Psalms 5:3 My voice shalt thou hear in the morning, O Lord; in the morning will I direct my prayer unto thee, and will look up.

People Need The Lord!

October 30, 2021

It is our responsibility as Christians to tell people about the Lord. We have the answer and today there is a generation who are not being taught about Jesus.

SOS Events volunteers notice it more and more at events. Young people have not heard about Jesus death, burial and resurrection.

This weekend is a great opportunity to witness to children and teens. Don’t miss it. When they come to your door for Trick or Treat give them something that is worth more than candy. Put a tract in their bag.

There is something else you can do. Pray for SOS Events volunteers as they are at many events throughout the USA today and tomorrow. People need the Lord.
