Plans!

January 24, 2023

Planning is something most people do to make sure they stay on task.

GOD has plans for each of us too. In the Scriptures, Jeremiah speaks of thoughts the Lord has for us, plans of peace and prosperity.

But did you realize that Satan has plans for you as well? Satan is after your name and reputation. When you wake up every morning, he has already plotted how to come against you that day.

You have a choice. Whose plan are you going to follow? Call on the Lord for help and guidance in every day.

Joseph’s Warnings from God.

December 28, 2022

After the wise men’s visit, Joseph was warned in a dream to take Jesus and Mary and flee to Egypt.

Herod was seeking to kill Jesus and not getting a report back from the wise men he had all the young children in Bethlehem killed. But Jesus was safe and the little family stayed in Egypt until Herod was dead.

Then once again Joseph had a dream and returned but went to live in Nazareth where Jesus grew from childhood until He started His earthly ministry.

God’s Word is true. Every prophesy concerning Jesus birth was fulfilled down to the last detail. Many people leave Jesus in the manger as a baby but do not believe future events also predicted in the Bible. Jesus is the Messiah, He did die on the cross and He is coming again to rule and reign over all the world. Are you ready for a great future with Jesus the coming King?

Matthew 2:13-15 And when they were departed, behold, the angel of the Lord appeareth to Joseph in a dream, saying, Arise, and take the young child and his mother, and flee into Egypt, and be thou there until I bring thee word: for Herod will seek the young child to destroy him. When he arose, he took the young child and his mother by night, and departed into Egypt: And was there until the death of Herod: that it might be fulfilled which was spoken of the Lord by the prophet, saying, Out of Egypt have I called my son.

Thankful for the Christmas Season!

November 28, 2022
For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Savior, who is Christ the Lord. Luke 2:11

It is such a joy to go shopping and hear songs of the season. Maybe not the hymns we love about baby Jesus, but happy uplifting songs that bring joy.

Jingle Bells, Rudolf the Red Nose Reindeer, It’s Beginning to Look a Lot Like Christmas. These songs though not about the true meaning of Christmas gives a spring in our steps.

People seem happier at this time of year. More smiles and more tolerance of long lines in the grocery store or at the mall.

That is why I love the time between Thanksgiving and Christmas.

We must be careful not to get so caught up in the worldly activities that we forget the true meaning of the season. Jesus is the reason for the Season.

Be Thankful For Your Siblings

November 18, 2022
Sisters

Many of us are blessed to have brothers or sisters. It is a special bond that can only be understood by those who have a brother or sister.

Maybe you do not have a sibling but have always desired to have that relationship.

You can fill your life with friends that are sometimes closer than physical siblings.

As Christians we are born into God’s family and that makes us brothers and sisters in Christ. That is also a special bond that we share with one another.

Today, pray and thank the Lord for your siblings and for your spiritual brothers and sisters.

But as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name:
‭‭John‬ ‭1‬:‭12‬ ‭KJV‬‬

Can I Ask God’s Blessing On This?

October 20, 2022
And whatsoever ye do, do it heartily, as to the Lord, and not unto men; Colossians 3:23

Can I ask God’s blessing on this? This is a great question to ask whatever we plan to do.

When we live our lives doing things we want or think we should, without thinking how will this effect our relationship with God, we are in danger of falling into sin.

If you have never trusted Jesus as your Lord and Savior, that is the first thing you need to do to receive a blessing from God.

Once you have done that, then everything else we do should be done to honor and glorify God.

Do You Have 2 Birthdays?

October 13, 2022

Today is William Slater’s birthday. He is the Chairman of the Board of SOS EVents Ministry.

It is wonderful to have a birthday to celebrate, but even better to have been born again. Thankfully, William accepted Jesus as his Savior when he was a child. So he can celebrate his physical birth as well as his spiritual birth.

Do you have 2 birthdays?

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. John 3:3

Adoption!

October 11, 2022

Yesterday, this family was blessed with adding this little girl into their lives thought adoption. Both their son and now daughter, who are biological siblings, have been welcomed into their home. Congratulations!

We all need to be adopted into God’s family. There is only one way we can be officially adopted. We must accept Jesus as our Savior.

He is the judge. Someday we will all stand before Him and the acceptance into His home, Heaven, will be if we have trusted Jesus as our Savior.

Are you adopted? If not trust Jesus today.

Having predestinated us unto the adoption of children by Jesus Christ to himself, according to the good pleasure of his will, Ephesians 1:5

For ye are all the children of God by faith in Christ Jesus. Galatians 3:26

The Answer To Keep From Sin

September 23, 2022

God’s Word tells us how we can keep from sinning. The answer is to memorize verses in the Bible.

Are You Making A Difference?

September 16, 2022

Adrian Rogers had some great sermons which are still recorded and broadcasted on radio and YouTube. His message on soul winning is one of the best I’ve ever heard.

This is what he said about Christians who use the excuse they don’t have the gift of soul winning. “Soul winning is not a gift, it is a command.”

He also said that 90% of Christians have never even lead one person to the Lord. The tragedy is that most Christians don’t even care.

This is a sad commentary and it must break God’s heart. Jesus came to earth, was crucified, buried and rose again that people may be saved. How about you? Are you making a difference?

Let him know, that he which converteth the sinner from the error of his way shall save a soul from death, and shall hide a multitude of sins. James 5:20
