The Perfect Gift

December 10, 2017

The next 15 days for a lot of people will be the busiest time of year preparing for that perfect Christmas gift. Shopping in crowded stores, looking at catalogs, shopping on line.

The best gift you can give anyone is telling them about Jesus. For your unsaved friend, coworker or relative their best gift would be receiving Jesus as their Savior.

For your Christian loved ones a time of fellowship, a phone call or a message. Your time is more precious than any gift you could possibly buy.

Enjoy the Christmas season but don’t forget the best gift ever given…..Jesus.

Romans 6:23  For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.

Keep Christ in Christmas

December 9, 2017

“Happy Holidays” is what you hear when shopping this year. Store cashiers and employees are trained not to say “Merry Christmas.” We must not offend anyone. What a shame. Just one more way the enemy has used to take Christ out of Christmas.

As Christians our response should be “Merry Christmas”. There would be no Holy day without Jesus. Let us honor our Lord every chance we get. Keep Christ in Christmas by your words but more importantly keep Him first in your heart. He is the King of kings and Lord of lords.

Matthew 1:18

Now the birth of Jesus Christ was on this wise: When as his mother Mary was espoused to Joseph, before they came together, she was found with child of the Holy Ghost.

What Do You Hear?

December 3, 2017

When you go to church what do you hear? Sermons on sin or sermons that make you feel good. We need to hear the truth coming from preachers today. If you have a Pastor that preaches about sin and redemption, encourage him. If you do not hear anything but social gospel, maybe you should find another church.

2 Timothy 4:3-4 For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine; but after their own lusts shall they heap to themselves teachers, having itching ears; And they shall turn away their ears from the truth, and shall be turned unto fables.

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.

Wisdom from Founder of SOS Events

November 28, 2017

“The hardest thing about evangelism is getting up in the morning and trusting God.”

Thomas Curtis

Founder SOS Events

1936-2016

1 Timothy 4:10

For therefore we both labour and suffer reproach, because we trust in the living God, who is the Saviour of all men, specially of those that believe.

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.

Be Thankful for Bad Things

November 20, 2017

Can we be thankful for the bad things in life? Maybe we don’t feel thankful, but God tells us to be thankful in all things. Tell Him you are thankful not because of feelings but because of obedience. Eventually, after a period of time you will be able to thank Him in your heart and remember the precious memories of the good things God has given you. (This is my experience after the death of 2 beloved sons)

1 Thessalonians 5:18

In every thing give thanks: for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus concerning you.

Be Thankful for Your Church

November 19, 2017

Hebrews 2:12

Saying, I will declare thy name unto my brethren, in the midst of the church will I sing praise unto thee.

Thankful for Forgiveness

November 18, 2017

Ephesians 4:32

And be ye kind one to another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, even as God for Christ’s sake hath forgiven 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.
