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.

Works or Salvation

November 29, 2018

Men build our churches, but do not enter them

Print our BIBLES,  but do not read them

Talk about GOD, but do not believe in Him

Speak of CHRIST, but do not trust Him for salvation

2 Timothy 1:9 Who hath saved us, and called us with an holy calling, not according to our works, but according to his own purpose and grace, which was given us in Christ Jesus before the world began,

Working for Eternal or Earthly?

November 26, 2018

With the Christmas Holidays coming, most of us will spend hours and even days working to make our families and friends happy for a short time. We labor for things that will soon pass away and are distant memories, taking no thought for the eternal. How much work do we do for the Lord? Taking time out of our “business” to witness at an event, inviting friends and neighbors to church so they can hear the gospel, or even stopping long enough to pray for the lost. Let us take time and work for the eternal as well as the earthly this busy time of year.

1 Corinthians 15:58 Therefore, my beloved brethren, be ye stedfast, unmoveable, always abounding in the work of the Lord, forasmuch as ye know that your labour is not in vain in the Lord.

Anticipating Church Today

November 25, 2018

Last night, thousands of people stood up and cheered for 5 hours with anticipation at a ball games that went into 7 Overtimes, yet some people complain when the Preacher goes over 5 minutes.

I trust you would have that same excitement and anticipation today to hear a Word from God. And if your Pastor goes over time, be grateful for extra time to hear from God.

Better yet, stand and cheer him on, it may just wake up a few people beside you.

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

Black Friday

November 23, 2018

The day after Thanksgiving in the USA is called “Back Friday”. A day that merchants invented so that people will rush out to stores to shop. It is the busiest shopping day as almost all stores have huge sales. We always like a bargain, however, a word of caution, we spend money that we cannot afford for gifts that will be soon forgotten after Christmas. We need to be reminded as Christians to be good stewards of the resources that God has given us. So go out today and have fun shopping, but before you go, pray for wisdom about your purchases. God is interested in our finances.

Matthew 6:19-20

Lay not up for yourselves treasures upon earth, where moth and rust doth corrupt, and where thieves break through and steal: But lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust doth corrupt, and where thieves do not break through nor steal:

Election Day in the USA

November 6, 2018

If you have not voted yet, today is the day. Then pray that the people who get elected will honor God, Country and Christian values.

I Timothy 2:1-2 I exhort therefore, that, first of all, supplications, prayers, intercessions, and giving of thanks, be made for all men; For kings, and for all that are in authority; that we may lead a quiet and peaceable life in all godliness and honesty.

Freedom to Choose

November 5, 2018

If you are a citizen of the USA, you have something wonderful to be thankful for, FREEDOM. Tomorrow is Election Day. It is your duty and privilege to vote for the candidate that you feel will do the best job of running the government.

Also, in several states there are important amendments that could change your way of life. Today do some research and tomorrow get out and vote.

Our freedom was and is not free. “The only thing necessary for the triumph of evil is that good men do nothing.” Do something. Vote!!

Romans 13:1 Let every soul be subject unto the higher powers. For there is no power but of God: the powers that be are ordained of God.

SOS Events Needs YOU!

October 17, 2018

SOS Events motto is “A life saving ministry.” Our goal is to tell people of their need of a Savior, Jesus, and to lead them from spiritual death into eternal life. Events are the place where we witness. At large events like NASCAR races and Strawberry Festival and small events like Fall Festivals in churchyards. God has blessed and many people are saved each week through this ministry. You can be a part by volunteering, praying and giving. SOS Events needs you!

John 4:35 Say not ye, There are yet four months, and then cometh harvest? behold, I say unto you, Lift up your eyes, and look on the fields; for they are white already to harvest.

Matthew 9:37 Then saith he unto his disciples, The harvest truly is plenteous, but the labourers are few;

Heavenly or Earthly Minded?

October 12, 2018

There is an old expression, “You are so heavenly minded you are no earthly good.” I would like to switch it to “You are so earthly minded you are no heavenly good.” Have the things of the world choked out your desire to serve the Lord? Jesus came to seek and to save those who are lost. What are you doing to win souls to Christ? SOS Events Ministry needs YOU. if you are physically able to go to an event to witness for 3 to 4 hours, you can volunteer to work an event. If you are not able to volunteer you could support others who go by giving financially. Unable to do either of those then the most important need is prayer. Please pray for those who go and for the people who need salvation. You will be blessed as you focus on the things that is most important on God’s mind.

Luke 19:10 For the Son of man is come to seek and to save that which was lost.

Is the Majority Right?

“A lie doesn’t become truth, wrong doesn’t become right, and evil doesn’t become good, just because its accepted by the majority.” Booker T. Washington
