Planting Seeds

March 21, 2019

When asked what happened at an event, sometimes a SOS Events volunteer will say, “We planted seed today.” What do they mean? No one received Jesus as their Savior that day.

Disappointed? Yes, but we have to remember that seeds that are planted grow. We do not know what that tract or our testimony will do in the heart of an unbeliever. The Word of God is the seed and it will not return void. Some plant, some water but God gives the increase, in His timing. So do not be discouraged, if the person does not accept the Lord right then, keep planting seeds and let them grow.

1 Peter 1:23 Being born again, not of corruptible seed, but of incorruptible, by the word of God, which liveth and abideth for ever.

Psalms 118:24 This is the day which the Lord hath made; we will rejoice and be glad in it.

Opportunities

February 27, 2019

Every time our phone rings it gives us an opportunity to witness or encourage someone. We get calls that are very pleasant, from family or friends. We can use these calls to encourage and pray for each other. It’s a great way to stay in touch with loved ones far away.

We also get calls that are extremely annoying, like a solicitor trying to get us to donate or buy something we don’t want or need. Our first reaction is to hang up..but wait. It may be an opportunity to witness to that person. They may listen or they will hang up on us. Then we have accomplished something. A seed planted or we have gotten rid of an annoying call. Let’s use every opportunity that God gives us to bring honor to Him.

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.

Plant City Flea Market

February 22, 2019

Randy, William (photo) and Alice faithfully go every Wednesday to the Flea Market where God blesses with many people accepting Jesus as their Savior. A great example of God’s blessing was this past Wednesday when 7 people were saved. SOS Events Ministry needs more faithful workers, not only in Florida but throughout the USA and beyond. What would God have you do to help? Ask Him.

Luke 10:2 Therefore said he unto them, The harvest truly is great, but the labourers are few: pray ye therefore the Lord of the harvest, that he would send forth labourers into his harvest.

A Shocking 47% Of Millennials Say Evangelism Is Wrong

A Shocking 47% Of Millennials Say Evangelism Is Wrong. Relevant Magazine

“Almost half of Millennials (47%) agree at least somewhat that it is wrong to share one’s personal beliefs with someone of a different faith in hopes that they will one day share the same faith.”

The article said they believe in Jesus, but do not think we should share the Gospel with others. Christians, we must reach not only the lost millennials (ages 18-35), but we must teach our Christian young people that the Jesus they follow commanded us to spread the gospel. A whole generation and generations to follow will be lost if we do not do more to reach them.

Mark 16:15 And he said unto them, Go ye into all the world, and preach the gospel to every creature.

The Perfect Church

Hebrews 2:12 Saying, I will declare thy name unto my brethren, in the midst of the church will I sing praise unto thee.

George Washington Quote

February 9, 2019

America was founded by men who loved God and believed in Jesus and that we should have freedom OF religion, not freedom FROM religion. They also believed that the Bible, God’s Word, should be taught in schools, churches and at home. What a long way America has come since then. When prayer and the Bible was taken out of the schools and public gatherings the great moral decline of the USA began. Christians did not stand up and protest enough. Materialism and complacency took over for many Christians. Is it too late? That is up to us.

2 Chronicles 7:14 If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.

Pray for SOS Events

January 29, 2019

Problems are part of life and on the SOS Events property there is an electricity problem. When working on display boards in the paint shop, David Dow, noticed sparks coming from an electric outlet. He immediately shut off the power. When the Electrician came, he gave us the bad news, all the wiring and boxes need replacement. The Office, Workshop and the Curtis home are all effected by the old dangerous system. We are thankful that God kept the property safe from fire, but this problem must be taken care of immediately. Until then all power to the workshop is shut off. Pray for additional funds will come in to pay for the repairs. Estimate $4000. SOS Events is a faith based ministry. God provides through the generosity of people who love the ministry. Please pray that the funds will come in and ask the Lord what you can do to help.

Proverbs 21:3 The horse is prepared against the day of battle: but safety is of the Lord.

2 Corinthians 9:7 Every man according as he purposeth in his heart, so let him give; not grudgingly, or of necessity: for God loveth a cheerful giver.

Past and Future

December 31, 2018

New Years Eve 2018…Time to reflect on the year that is ending and look to the New Year ahead. Joys, sorrow, memories and lessons learned in 2018 are now behind. Tomorrow starts a New Year. Time to look forward. It is a good idea to set some goals. Lose weight, do a better job at work, get better grades in school, witness more, help others. Whatever your resolution, keep it. Many of us make resolutions or goals and by January 10th they are already forgotten. The only way to keep our resolutions is to ask Jesus for help and look to Him as our example.

The goal for SOS Events Ministry in 2019 is to win more people to Jesus, get more events in new areas, train more Christians to work at events and Serve Our Savior faithfully. You can help by praying, giving or volunteering. Let us make 2019 the best year ever.

Hebrews 12:2 Looking unto Jesus the author and finisher of our faith; who for the joy that was set before him endured the cross, despising the shame, and is set down at the right hand of the throne of God.

Anna, the Prophetess

December 27, 2018

Anna, a prophet, was also there in the Temple. She was the daughter of Phanuel, of the tribe of Asher, and was very old. She was a widow, for her husband had died when they had been married only seven years.

Probably, after her husbands death, Anna would have been encouraged to get married again and have children. Anna,  chose to stay single. She chose to serve the Lord. She chose to fast and pray, worshiping the Lord day and night. She told people the news of the Savior that was coming, no matter how long it might be before he came. She knew her purpose and she didn’t let anyone’s opinions or comments keep her from it. Then Anna saw Mary, Joseph and the baby Jesus in the temple and knew her purpose had been fulfilled.

Luke 2:36-38 And there was one Anna, a prophetess, the daughter of Phanuel, of the tribe of Aser: she was of a great age, and had lived with an husband seven years from her virginity; And she was a widow of about fourscore and four years, which departed not from the temple, but served God with fastings and prayers night and day. And she coming in that instant gave thanks likewise unto the Lord, and spake of him to all them that looked for redemption in Jerusalem.
