Jesus is God

June 19, 2017

On Monday’s some of us need a lift to start the week. Today let us look at one of the names of Jesus and what He means to us.

God – Jesus is called God in several passages in the Bible. Along with His sinless life, miracles, and resurrection from the dead, His claims to be God stand firm.

John 20:27&28 Then saith he to Thomas, Reach hither thy finger, and behold my hands; and reach hither thy hand, and thrust it into my side: and benot faithless, but believing. And Thomas answered and said unto him, My Lord and my God.

The Cross

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.

Is Your Battery Recharged?

June 13, 2017

SOS Events Ministry owns a van that is used to transport things needed for events and to pick up materials and supplies. It runs very well if it is used often and is kept well maintained. However, sometimes it will not be used for several months and the battery runs down.  Then it will not run until we recharge the battery. Christian life is exactly like that. If we do not maintain our hearts and minds in good spiritual condition we will run down and we can not be effective for the Lord. Our “batteries” need recharging daily by reading our Bible, prayer and seeking God’s will and blessing each day.

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

Are You Humble?

James 4:10 Humble yourselves in the sight of the Lord, and he shall lift you up.

Two Birthdays

June 1, 2017

This time of year there are many birthdays including SOS Events cofounder, Carolyn Curtis. There are celebrations with cake, gifts, cards and phone calls but that is not the Birthday that is most important. The birthday which will be the one to celebrate for all eternity is the day that we are born again. Do you have 2 birthdays?

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.

Happy?

May 30, 2017

Want to be happy in life? There is an old hymn that says it all; Trust and obey for there’s no other way, To be happy in Jesus, But to trust and obey. I have included the words because each verse gives us an answer for our problems.

Psalms 62:8 Trust in him at all times; ye people, pour out your heart before him: God is a refuge for us. 

When we walk with the Lord

  In the light of His Word,

What a glory He sheds on our way;

  While we do His good will,

  He abides with us still,

And with all who will trust and obey.

Chorus: Trust and obey,

For there’s no other way

To be happy in Jesus,

  But to trust and obey.

Not a shadow can rise,

  Not a cloud in the skies,

But His smile quickly drives it away;

  Not a doubt or a fear,

  Not a sigh or a tear,

Can abide while we trust and obey.

Not a burden we bear,

  Not a sorrow we share,

But our toil He doth richly repay;

  Not a grief or a loss,

  Not a frown or a cross,

But is blest if we trust and obey.

But we never can prove

  The delights of His love,

Until all on the altar we lay;

  For the favor He shows,

  And the joy He bestows,

Are for them who will trust and obey.

Then in fellowship sweet

  We will sit at His feet,

Or we’ll walk by His side in the way;

  What He says we will do;

  Where He sends, we will go,

Never fear, only trust and obey.

Romans 13:7 Render therefore to all their dues: tribute to whom tribute is due; custom to whom custom; fear to whom fear; honour to whom honour.

Love or Hate

May 28, 2017

Written on a church sign:  I have decided to stick with love. Hate is too great a burden to bear.

Mark 5:43-44 Ye have heard that it hath been said, Thou shalt love thy neighbour, and hate thine enemy. But I say unto you, Love your enemies, bless them that curse you, do good to them that hate you, and pray for them which despitefully use you, and persecute you;

Terrorist Attack

May 23, 2017

Another terrorist attack in England this time mostly young people were the targets. Out hearts go out to the parents and loved ones of the victims. Pray for the survivors and families who lost someone in this evil act. The world holds many dangers from evil doers but as Christians we must trust the Lord for safety and peace.

Psalms 37:9 For evildoers shall be cut off: but those that wait upon the Lord, they shall inherit the earth.

Brighten Your Corner

May 22, 2017

There is a little song “Brighten the Corner Where You Are”.  Today why don’t you encourage someone with a phone call, text message, note or a simple smile may make someone’s day brighter. Maybe a single Mom, a lonely person, a friend who struggling with a problem or a stranger who needs a friendly greeting. You will be the one who gets a blessing along with the person you are encouraging.

Galatians 6:10 As we have therefore opportunity, let us do good unto all men, especially unto them who are of the household of faith.
