Fellowship With God

July 6, 2017

We have joy when our adult children take time out of their busy schedule to stop over or call. Their fellowship is precious. Our Heavenly Father wants the same thing from us, His children. God wants to hear from us everyday. He loves to hear about out joys and also our troubles and sorrows. The wonderful thing about Him is He is always with us just waiting to hear and answer our prayers. If you have not talked to Him in awhile stop and pray right now. Fellowship with Him is the most precious blessing.

Jeremiah 33:3 Call unto me, and I will answer thee, and shew thee great and mighty things, which thou knowest not.

Yesterday at the ministry, the SOS Events Senior Servant ladies once again met to stuff, label and seal the newsletters. Praise the Lord for their faithfulness, cheerful heart and gracious spirit.

Numbers 6:24-26 (KJV)

The Lord bless thee, and keep thee: The Lord make his face shine upon thee, and be gracious unto thee: The Lord lift up his countenance upon thee, and give thee peace.

Black Friday

November 25, 2016

Today is what America calls Black Friday! Christmas has become so commercialized that a lot of people will be in stores before dawn and many started on Thanksgiving day rushing for the best deals. By 5:30 AM many store were already out of some popular toys. 

Our extended family, married children and family not living in our home have decided not to exchange gifts this year but to spend time rather than money on one another. This will give the best gift of all to each other and that is true love and fellowship. It also will help each of us to focus on the true meaning of Christmas, the birth of our Lord Jesus Christ.

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.

David, Faithful Friend

June 10, 2016

David Dow is a friend and co laborer to SOS Events ministry. Today we wish him a Happy Birthday.

David builds all the displays for in the ministry which have been used to win thousands of people to the Lord not only in the USA but in several other countries as well. He also keeps everything looking beautiful on the property when he is in Florida. He is now up North with his family and friends and we pray he is enjoying the time there but we are always happy to have him back in Florida to fellowship and work with us here in the Fall. We are thankful to have a faithful friend.

Proverbs 27:17 Iron sharpeneth iron;  so a man sharpeneth the countenance of his friend.


True Friend

April 4, 2016

Proverbs 27:17 Iron sharpeneth iron; so a man sharpeneth the countenance of his friend.

God has blessed SOS Events Ministry with many good friends. An example of unselfish friendship is David, who has been working on the SOS property for 10 or more years. He builds all the displays that are used in the ministry, repairs buildings and does maintenance on the office, workshop, printshop and grounds.

More than that, he has become a faithful friend in good times and times of hardship. Saturday morning there was no water. The Curtis home shares the property with the buildings of SOS Events Ministry and there was no one in the office  or on property on the weekend. Carolyn discovered a water leak at the pump and did not know what to do. Tom, recovering from surgery,  could not check it out so Tom called David and he immediately came to the rescue. Within a few minutes he discovered the problem and fixed it.

David may have had plans for the day, he may have wanted to rest or do something for himself but he did not hesitate to come quickly when he was needed. That is true friendship.

  


New Years Eve

December 31, 2015

Many people will be celebrating New Years Eve tonight. Some will party, get drunk, and some will even die thinking they are having a good time.

Christians celebrate in different ways. One family has a bonfire every year, burns their Christmas tree and invites friends for food and fellowship.

I think celebrating at the church is not done much anymore, but some fondest memories are when people used to go to church, sing, eat, and pray at midnight for a safe, happy and prosperous new year.

However you choose to spend this evening, a good idea would be to stop and pray. Start your new year in the best way possible with joy. Jesus first, Others second and You last. That will bring you a truly happy New Year.

John 13:34  A new commandment I give unto you, That ye love one another; as I have loved you, that ye also love one another.

Family

November 24, 2015

Usually on a holiday like Thanksgiving families get together to eat and have fellowship. Some families are very small and some families are huge with many relatives.

Families are a blessing. They are not perfect but the imperfections make each one unique. At this time of year thank God for your family. If they are live close to you you are especially blessed. If they are far away take time to pray for them today. Maybe they have passed on to Heaven and you can still be thankful for the time you had with them.

If you have unsaved relatives pray for them and do not give up. I know a daughter who prayed for her parents for over 30 years and both parents were saved just weeks before they died. God is faithful and always good.

1 Corinthians 1:9  God is faithful, by whom ye were called unto the fellowship of his Son Jesus Christ our Lord.

Fellowship

November 9, 2015

Pastor Romero and his wife, Maria stopped by Saturday to get supplies and turn in 79 decisions slips from the Flea Market in Lakeland, Fl.

It is always a joy to see them and fellowship. Maria speaks no English and we speak no Spanish but somehow the love of Jesus shines through and we communicate. When the pastor prays in Spanish, we know through the Holy Spirit that his prayers for us and the ministry reach the Father in Heaven.

Join with us in prayer for the Romeros and their church. He told us that the church has tripled in size since they have been witnessing at the flea market.

1 John 1:7  But if we walk in the light, as he is in the light, we have fellowship one with another, and the blood of Jesus Christ his Son cleanseth us from all sin.

Communication = Relationship

October 7, 2015

“Without communication there is no relationship.”

This quote is one of the things that a Pastor, whose name I have forgotten, preached many years ago that made a great difference in my life. 

He was speaking about our relationship with God. Communication is a connection, a way to express thoughts, feelings and action to one another.

To have a relationship with God we MUST communicate. How? We talk to Him through prayer and He talks to us through His Word and the Holy Spirit. It has to be a regular thing. He desires us to come to Him daily for that true intimate relationship with him.

The same thing is true with our relationships with family and friends. If we do not keep communication active the relationship fades and can die. 

If you are out of fellowship with God, He is waiting for your relationship to begin again. Pray and ask His forgiveness for your neglect and that wonderful joy of communication with God will be restored immediately.

Maybe there is someone that you haven’t communicated with in a long time. Today, there is no excuse with email, Facebook, Phone and all the modern ways we have to talk to our friends and family. You may not get an immediate response but do not give up. Those relationships can be mended or improved but not without communication.

Hebrews 13:15-16 By him therefore let us offer the sacrifice of praise to God continually, that is, the fruit of our lips giving thanks to his name. But to do good and to communicate forget not: for with such sacrifices God is well pleased.

Senior Servants

September 4, 2015

The SOS Senior Servants met yesterday for the first time since June. It was a great joy to renew our fellowship with these dear ladies. In just two and one half hours they got over 2500 newsletters ready for mailing, then enjoyed food and fellowship. 

These faithful Servants need prayer as many have illnesses, two have children with cancer and one has become a widow in the last month. Please join in prayer for them. 

 1 John 1:7 But if we walk in the light, as he is in the light, we have fellowship one with another, and the blood of Jesus Christ his Son cleanseth us from all sin.
