A Child’s Gift

December 7, 2017

In the next few weeks there will be Christmas programs in churches and schools (of course to be politically correct in schools they will be called holiday programs).Songs will be happy and you may even hear a Carol or two. Looking back in memory there was one program that stands out in my mind and I have seen and even directed many of these programs.This only one that I remember clearly is when my son, who was about 3 years old, recited this little poem:

“I’m not very big or very tall you see, but to the dear Lord Jesus I give all of me.”

From the mouth of a child, that is what our gift to the Lord should be. Our heart, mind and body should be dedicated to Him this Christmas. We scurry around finding the perfect gift for each friend or loved one and many times forget the One whose birthday we are celebrating. So this season enjoy all festivities but put Jesus first. He desires our worship, love and devotion.

Luke 18:17 Verily I say unto you, Whosoever shall not receive the kingdom of God as a little child shall in no wise enter therein.

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.

Jesus is the Reason for the Season

November 25, 2017

Thanksgiving Day is now past and most people are now getting ready for the biggest holiday of the year. Shopping, wrapping, cooking and cleaning is primary on the minds of everyone. In all of that preparation we tend to forget what Christmas is all about. There is a saying, “Jesus is the reason for the season.” How true. Do not neglect your devotion time with Him. Bible reading and prayer are more important when we are busy. It keeps our focus on Jesus and helps us get through the work and preparation for the Holidays.

Psalms 29:2 Give unto the Lord the glory due unto his name; worship the Lord in the beauty of holiness.

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.

SOS Events

A perfect illustration to show what SOS Events Ministry does. 

1 Corinthians 1:18 For the preaching of the cross is to them that perish foolishness; but unto us which are saved it is the power of God.

To God Be The Glory

October 25, 2017

Everything that is done and accomplished by SOS Events Ministry is done because God gives us the wisdom, power and strength to do what He asks us to do. Many times it is not easy as the enemy tries to stop us from doing God’s work, but God always gives what we need when we need it and souls are saved, volunteers come through and the results are His. To God Be the glory great things He has done and continues to do through this ministry. Please keep us in prayer, especially this very busy week with many events scheduled.

Romans 16:27 To God only wise, be glory through Jesus Christ for ever. Amen.
