Hang in There

January 17, 2020

There is a poster that hung in my office several years ago. It had a picture of a kitten hanging on a branch of a tree and the words were, ” Hang in there”

Today things sometimes look bleak and we get discouraged but the good news is that Jesus is with us in times of discouragement and He is coming soon. What a joy to know that we shall see Him face to face, if we know Him as our Savior.

Luke 21:28 And when these things begin to come to pass, then look up, and lift up your heads; for your redemption draweth nigh.

Great is God’s Faithfulnss

January 16, 2020

A great hymn based on this scripture:

1 Great is thy faithfulness, O God my Father; 

there is no shadow of turning with thee; 

thou changest not, thy compassions, they fail not; 

as thou hast been thou forever wilt be.

Refrain: 

Great is thy faithfulness! 

Great is thy faithfulness! 

Morning by morning new mercies I see:

all I have needed thy hand hath provided–

Great is thy faithfulness, Lord, unto me!

2 Summer and winter and springtime and harvest,

sun, moon, and stars in their courses above

join with all nature in manifold witness 

to thy great faithfulness, mercy, and love. [Refrain]

3 Pardon for sin and a peace that endureth, 

thine own dear presence to cheer and to guide, 

strength for today and bright hope for tomorrow,

blessings all mine, with ten thousand beside!

Faint Not

January 14, 2020

January is always an extremely busy month for the staff of SOS ministries. The office staff has end of the year reports to get finished, the shop has several projects to complete, there is preparation for the many events that take place in Florida in the winter and there are new people to be trained, some for event workers and some to be event leaders.

All this activity can cause us to get weary, but the Bible says we will reap if we faint not.

Why is all this activity so necessary? SOULS. All of the effort is with the goal in mind of winning many people to Christ.

The promise is in the verse. WE WILL REAP.

Galatians 6:9 And let us not be weary in well doing:for in due season we shall reap, if we faint not.

May God Bless You Today

Jesus, Light of the World

January 9, 2020

In a time of trouble in the world we need to be able to turn to the ONE who can help us when we feel that there is nothing but darkness. Sometimes we think that there is no hope, but we have someone who cares and loves us. Jesus is the light at the end of our dark tunnel.

John 8:12 Then spake Jesus again unto them, saying, I am the light of the world: he that followeth me shall not walk in darkness, but shall have the light of life.

Happy and Blessed New Year

January 1, 2020

2020 is here. Will it be a year full of joy or sorrow? Will we have success or failure? Sickness or health? God does not allow us to see into the future but he does promise to guide us if we put our trust in Him. He is with us in every circumstance, good or bad and He is always good.

The staff of SOS Events wishes you and your loved ones a happy prosperous New Year. May God bless you as you trust in Him.

Proverbs 3:5-6 Trust in the Lord with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding.  In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths.

Christmas is Past

December 30, 2019

Christmas is over, time to take down the beautiful decorations and keeping in our hearts the memories of Christmas 2019. 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 2020, and Serve Our Savior with more zeal than we ever had before.

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 Gentiles.:

Gabriel, Angel from Heaven

December 14, 2019

Only two angels are mentioned by name in the New Testament. Gabriel and Michael. Gabriel was an archangel who was a messenger sent by God to deliver news to Zacariah and then later to Mary. Gabriel is also mentioned in the book of Daniel in the Old Testament. Angels had an important role in the birth of the Lord Jesus. Their presence brought fear into the hearts of the people they appeared to according to scripture.

We tend to forget that people like Zacariah, Mary and Joseph were just ordinary people that God used in extraordinary circumstances. If Gabriel appeared to us today we too would be afraid. As Christians we can look forward to the time when we will see angels in Heaven. What a wonderful future we have and there will be no fear, only wonder and beauty as we behold Heaven and meet Jesus face to face.

Luke 1:19 And the angel answering said unto him, I am Gabriel, that stand in the presence of God; and am sent to speak unto thee, and to shew thee these glad tidings.

Luke 1:26 And in the sixth month the angel Gabriel was sent from God unto a city of Galilee, named Nazareth,

(It has been a blessing to see the symbols of Christmas and we look now to the people that the Bible recorded about the birth of Jesus)

Welcome December

December 1, 2019

A whimsical welcome to the last month of the year, December. A time in the busy holiday season to take time to look up to our Lord and Savior, Jesus. He is truly the secret to a wonderful life. (Let’s not keep Him a secret, tell someone about Him at every opportunity)

Titus 2:13 Looking for that blessed hope, and the glorious appearing of the great God and our Saviour Jesus Christ;
