Worldly Christians

1 John 2:15 Love not the world, neither the things that are in the world. If any man love the world, the love of the Father is not in him.

Are You a Winner?

January 23, 2016

Winners are losers who gave it one more try. 

There is an insurance company in town that always has a interesting saying written on their sign. This one caught my eye because it reminded me of the Christian life. 

God never promised that when we get saved our life will be easy. In fact the devil will attack a Christian and try to make him or her ineffective for the Lord. God did promise that He will go through our trials and testing. It is our responsibility to keep on serving Him no matter what the circumstances.

If you seem to be at a place where nothing is working in your Christian life, give it one more try. The biggest thing to remember is don’t quit. Some of the greatest inventors, statesmen, preachers and musicians failed many times befor they became successful at the goal they were trying to reach.

Philippians 2:16  Holding forth the word of life; that I may rejoice in the day of Christ, that I have not run in vain, neither laboured in vain.

The Turtle and the Hare

January 6, 2016

 Have you ever heard the fable of the turtle and the hare? They were in a race and the rabbit got so far ahead he thought he would rest awhile, but the turtle kept his steady pace passed the rabbit and won the race.

The big events are like the rabbit. Fairs, Strawberry Festival and other events with Thousands of people in attendance. Usually these events will have between 200 to 600 people saved. Praise the Lord.

The Wednesday flea market is like the turtle. Every week faithful workers go early (between 5 and 6 am) in the morning to set up the tent and displays. Sometimes as few as 3 people get saved and some weeks 20 or 30. It all adds up and in 2015 over 750 decisions were recorded. 

The turtle just kept on going in a steady pace and won. SOS Events faithful workers just keep on going and God brings blessings to them each week. 

SOS is thankful for all events and all workers. Some of our workers will work once or twice a year at the “big” rabbit events but it is the Wednesday “turtle” workers who see the most people make decisions at the end of the year.

Every Christian is in the race. Are you  the “turtle” or the “hare”?

1 Corinthians 9:24  Know ye not that they which run in a race run all, but one receiveth the prize? So run, that ye may obtain.
