One Word- COMMIT

January 16, 2019

What a great way to begin a new year. Choose one word that will fit your situation and lifestyle and focus on that for the year. There have been many suggestions. Faith, love, commitment, trust and many more.

For SOS Events Ministry this year the word is commit. Commit to winning souls, train more workers , get new events, expand into new areas, but, most importantly commit to follow the Lord’s leading in everything we do.

You can help meet that goal. Pray for SOS Events regularity, give generously, volunteer to work in events, find new events for us and in your church or club arrange for one of SOS Events Leaders to come and present the ministry.

Psalms 37:5 Commit thy way unto the Lord; trust also in him; and he shall bring it to pass.

No Church Today?

January 13, 2019

There may be reasons you can’t go to church today. Illness, work or weather may prevent you from being in church. Many places in the Northern United States have cancelled church today because of snow, ice and dangerous driving conditions. If you cannot go use this time to gather round your family and read the Bible and pray together. If your are alone what a great opportunity to fellowship with the Lord without distractions.

A Pastor wrote on FB yesterday some good advice, if you stay home, don’t post your 10:30 trip to Walmart on Face Book. Whatever your circumstances today, take time to worship the Lord.

Psalms 29:2 Give unto the Lord the glory due unto his name; worship the Lord in the beauty of holiness.

Are You Content?

January 11, 2019

Hebrews 13:5 Let your conversation be without covetousness; and be content with such things as ye have: for he hath said, I will never leave thee, nor forsake thee.

Clutter

January 10, 2019

God has blessed those of us in America. We have so many things that we end up wondering what to do with the things we want to keep. Most of us have a closest full of clothes we no longer wear. Storage is usually at a minimum because we want to hang on to possessions we might use someday. Our garages get cluttered with unused tools and junk. It is time we got rid of the material clutter in our homes.

We also need to get rid of the clutter in our lives. Things that we hang on to. Things that we need to get rid of, worry, not forgiving others, bitterness, bad habits and other things that rob us of joy in our Christian life. Today let us look within ourselves and get rid of the clutter that keeps us from being the shining Christian God wants u to be.

Ephesians 4:31-32 Let all bitterness, and wrath, and anger, and clamour, and evil speaking, be put away from you, with all malice: And be ye kind one to another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, even as God for Christ’s sake hath forgiven you.

There’s a Mouse in the House

January 9, 2019

A mouse is small and some people even think they are cute, however, if they find a way to get into the house they cause damage. They chew holes in fabric, get into food and can cause disease. They are smart. Set traps and they find a way to get around the trap. The only way to get rid of of this little creature is to find the place they enter, block the hole and then use poison to kill it. Not a pleasant experience, but very necessary to protect your home from damage.

Sin is like this small mouse. Sin finds a way to get into our lives using a small temptation. If left without getting rid of it, sin gets bigger and harder to get rid of. It damages our lives. Relationships are hurt, and our fellowship with God is ruined. The only way to get rid of sin is to block the source by confessing it and then kill it by repentance and asking Jesus to forgive. Then be diligent to not allow that sin to enter into our lives again.

Acts 3:19 Repent ye therefore, and be converted, that your sins may be blotted out, when the times of refreshing shall come from the presence of the Lord;

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.

Christmas is Past

December 30, 2018

Christmas is over, time to take down the beautiful decorations and keeping in our hearts the memories of Christmas 2018. It always makes me sad to put away those wonderful things that make Christmas special every year. As we put away the lights, tree, nativity sets, let us not put away the truth of Christmas, Jesus was born into this world to be our Savior, and it is our responsibility to tell others. So let us make a resolution to be better witnesses in 2019, and Serve Our Savior with more zeal than we ever had before.

Acts 26:22-23 Having therefore obtained help of God, I continue unto this day, witnessing both to small and great, saying none other things than those which the prophets and Moses did say should come. That Christ should suffer, and that he should be the first that should rise from the dead, and should shew light unto the people, and to the Gentiles.:

The Best Gift

December 24, 2018

Many people are hustling to finish shopping for gifts, running at a fast pace to get the right present, get them wrapped and ready to see the happiness on the face of the recipient.

In all the preparation one thing is not even thought about. The most important Person, the Lord Jesus.

Christmas is a wonderful time of year but let us not leave out the reason for the season, Jesus. God gave us the most precious gift. We don’t have to shop for it or pay for it. All we have to do is accept it.

Jesus paid the price. If you have not received God’s Gift do it now. Ask Him to forgive your sins, believe He died for you and rose again, and call upon Him to save you. Your new life can begin today!

Romans 6:23 For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.

Your Gift For Jesus

December 23, 2018

Did you remember to get JESUS the gift He wants for Christmas? Many years ago, a little boy only two or three years old was in a Christmas program at a small church.

I have never forgotten the words this small child spoke on that day.

“I’m not very big

Nor very tall you see

but to the dear Lord Jesus

I give all of me.”

That small child is now a man an has given his life to the Lord working with children and influencing multitudes of lives to give their all to Jesus also.

Have you given all of you to Jesus?

Mark 10:21 Then Jesus beholding him loved him, and said unto him, One thing thou lackest:go thy way, sell whatsoever thou hast, and give to the poor, and thou shalt have treasure in heaven:and come, take up the cross, and follow me.
