Church Sign

September 7, 2022

This sign was on a church marquee. We may smile at that but there is a lesson in it.

None of us know when it will be our last day on earth. Death comes to the old and the young. We could have a tragic accident and be gone in seconds. Illness could strike and we could be gone in a day or two.

Are you ready? There is only one way to be sure of eternal life in Heaven. Jesus is the way , the truth and the life. Trust in Hime today, before it is too late.

Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me. John 14:6

Heading Home

August 26, 2022

When we are on a journey, business or pleasure, the one thing we look forward to is heading home.

As Christians we are on a journey through life. God gives us many things that are for our pleasure. Family, friends, homes, good food, clothing and many things we can enjoy.

God also gives us work to do for him. Love for others, church, witnessing for Him. Many opportunities to do service for the Lord.

However, we should be longing for Home. Heaven. Are we headed in the right direction? We have a roadmap to follow. That is the Bible, God’s Holy Word.

It is important to check the roadmap on a trip, but more important to check the Bible everyday to keep us on the right road.

For whatsoever things were written aforetime were written for our learning, that we through patience and comfort of the scriptures might have hope. Romans 15:4

All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness: 2 Timothy 3:16

Are You Packed?

June 14, 2022

Just as we pack for a trip, there are things we need to “pack” on our journey toward Heaven.

The first and most important is Salvation. Being saved is our ticket, and without it we cannot enter. Prayer, Faith, Love Joy, Patience, Goodness, Truth, Service, Witnessing and Forgiveness. (you may think of a few more) are needed for our trip.

In this picture is a cat which cannot be taken and on our life’s journey we need to leave out things also, Hate, Lying, Gossip, Pride and Disobedience are a few. As you prepare for Heaven, what are you “packing” to be ready?

1 Peter 1:9 Receiving the end of your faith, even the salvation of your souls.

Galatians 5:22 But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith,

Homesick For Heaven

April 25, 2022

Have you ever been away from your home and felt homesick?

As Christians we should be longing for our permanent home which is Heaven. The cares of this life overwhelm us at times.

Even in good times, like getting married or having a new baby, we should still have a desire to look to our heavenly home, Heaven.

Think about the joy of seeing our Savior, Jesus! Reunion with loved ones who have gone on before us. Not to mention the wonderful plans Jesus has for us that we cannot even imagine.

Homesick for Heaven!

Death, Not The End, Just The Beginning

March 16, 2022

Today many of SOS Events staff will attend the funeral of a friend, Joyce Elaine Sherwood Schlegel Morris. Her husband Danny Morris was the person who helped SOS Events Ministry get started.

Joyce will be missed. However, it is not the end of her life, it is just the beginning.

The Bible tells us that we have eternal life if we have trusted Jesus as our Savior. There will be tears today because we will no longer see her on this earth but we do have the assurance that we will meet again in Heaven.

And this is the record, that God hath given to us eternal life, and this life is in his Son. 1 John 5:11

Y el testimonio es éste: que Dios nos ha dado vida eterna, y esta vida está en su Hijo. 1Juan 5:11

People Watching

January 28, 2022

Do you like to watch people?

Some are tall, others short, some thin others heavy.

We see the mothers with small children to the elderly which have a hard time getting around. People of all colors, from the very fair skin to the darkest golden brown.

Some dress in expensive clothing while others are tattered, and some wear hardly any clothes at all. What a variety of people on the earth and God gave life to them all.

However, that He gave them life at birth does not mean they will live with Him in Heaven for all eternity. To get to Heaven no matter what their status on earth they (and you) must be born again.

John 3:3 Jesus answered and said unto him, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God.

Are You 50, 75 or 100% Sure You Are Going to Heaven?

November 16, 2021

We can be 100% sure we are on our way to heaven. God‘s Word the Bible gives us the assurance that we have eternal life and will be with Him forever.

Thank the Lord that we know we can be saved from sin. We trust in the death, burial and resurrection of Jesus for the forgiveness of sins. God’s Word is true and we can rely on Him.

The Only Way!

October 28, 2021

Looking for the way to go to Heaven when you die?

We cannot work our way. There is not enough money to pay for the way. Being religious will not get us there. Even going to church, if we went every day is not the answer.

Jesus is the only way.

Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me. John 14:6

Good News!

October 7, 2021

Tired of all the bad news on TV, radio or media. Disasters, war, sickness, accidents and death!

GOOD NEWS! We do not have to worry or be concerned about any of it. There is a future for everyone who have put their faith and trust in the Lord Jesus. He died on the cross and rose again so that we can go to Heaven.

This world and all the woes are just temporary. We have a home in Heaven with no more tears, sickness, sorrow or death! That is God’s promise.

It’s Not What We Do, It’s What He’s Done

September 4, 2021

We think what we do will get us to Heaven, but it’s not what we do, it’s what Jesus did when he died on the cross. He paid the price for ALL our sin.

Nothing we do, all our “good” work will never be enough to have our sin forgiven.

We owe everything to Him. When we work doing something for Him, it is out of gratitude and our love for Jesus. It does not count to get us to Heaven. Only trusting in Jesus alone will give us eternal life.

Ephesians 2:8-9
For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God: Not of works, lest any man should boast
