Happiness or Joy?

August 16, 2017

The definition of happy in Webster’s Dictionary: feeling pleasure and enjoyment because of your life, situation, etc.                               Happiness depends on what is happening around you, so if the situation changes it can be lost.

Joy according to Webster : a source or cause of great happiness : something or someone that gives joy to someone                      True joy is inward, a gift given to the Christian by God. Joy continues through all circumstances and does not depend on what is happening around you and it is permanent.

Psalms 16:11 Thou wilt shew me the path of life: in thy presence is fulness of joy; at thy right hand there are pleasures for evermore.

Hang in There

Have you ever felt like you are hanging on with no help in sight? Whatever the trial or situation that makes you feel that way, there is good news for you as a Christian. We have a someone who is right there with us. His name is Jesus. He is the One who will save us. Our helper, deliverer and friend. Call out to Him in prayer.

Psalms 18:2 The Lord is my rock, and my fortress, and my deliverer; my God, my strength, in whom I will trust; my buckler, and the horn of my salvation, and my high tower.

The Lord’s Day

July 16, 2017

As you worship today, let us not go to church because it is a habit or something that is expected of us. Let us go to worship God in spirit and in truth. To many times we think of the music, what our friends are wearing, how long the service seems to be or many other distractions. Go with pure love and thankfulness to Jesus for all He has done for us.

John 4:24 God is a Spirit: and they that worship him must worship him in spirit and in truth.

Take Down A Wall

July 13, 2017

Can a problem ever be good? Yes, when The space you have is too small for workers at SOS Events ministry. Our faithful Senior Servants come once a month to help us get out our newsletter. The group gets larger every month for which we are very thankful. The solution is to take down a wall to enlarge the space. It reminds me that sometimes we have a wall in our heart that may keep blessings out of our lives. It may be a relationship with a family member or friend. It may be some sin that is keeping us from our fellowship with God. If you have put up a wall that needs to be torn down, do it. You will be amazed that your problem has turned into a blessing.

Ephesians 2:14 For he is our peace, who hath made both one, and hath broken down the middle wall of partition between us;

Monday Morning

July 10, 2017

A new beginning of the work week for many people. Some love the thought of going to work, as it is pleasurable to them. Others are unhappy because they hate their job but have to work. Some are not working and would love to be able to go to work. Maybe illness, loss of job or circumstances keep them from working. Then there are vacations this time of year and this week is full of plans for family, fun and adventure. Whatever your day brings forth one thing to remember, this is the day that the Lord made, we are to be glad and rejoice in it.

Philippians 4:4 Rejoice in the Lord alway: and again I say, Rejoice.

God’s Creation

If you went to a fireworks display over the past week, I am sure you thought that they were beautiful. That is how we celebrate Independence Day in America. But there is a display that no man can duplicate. That is a sunset created by God. He provides awesome beauty everyday all over the world.

Genesis 1:31 And God saw every thing that he had made, and, behold, it was very good. And the evening and the morning were the sixth day.

Give Thanks for Freedom

July 2, 2017

Sunday, the Lord’s Day and in America we have the freedom to go to the church of our choice. We are blessed. Our Country’s leaders gave us the freedom to worship as we please. As we worship today let us give thanks for our freedom to worship whenever and wherever we wish. God wants us to worship Him with our whole heart.

Psalms 35:18 I will give thee thanks in the great congregation: I will praise thee among much people.
