Do Christians Face Tragedy?

July 18, 2018

Another sad news story of Christians facing tragedy was posted on Facebook today: “Pray for the ministry of New Life Baptist in Clinton NC. They were headed here to the youth conference and blew a tire. The driver’s young daughter passed away. Others injured, expected to recover.” God does not promise life without trials to the Christian, what He does promise is that He will be with us and comfort us through the trial. If you know someone who is facing a trial in their life today, please pray for them and see if you can be used of God to comfort them. Remember the people who are affected by this bus accident and the Moody Aviation plane crash. Please pray for them.

2 Corinthians 1:4 Who comforteth us in all our tribulation, that we may be able to comfort them which are in any trouble, by the comfort wherewith we ourselves are comforted of God.

Encouragement

July 13, 2018

If you are working for The Lord, with SOS Events, teaching Sunday School, volunteering for VBS or anything that is service for Him, you may feel like your work is unappreciated or that you don’t matter. Everything we do to bring glory to God is important and a verse to encourage you follows:

God Our Defender

The last few days we have honored the men and women in the military, but as Christians, our true defense is The Lord.

How to Witness

June 27, 2018

Thank you Patty for sharing this quote by D. L. Moody. SOS Events trains people how to be soul winners, but without the Holy Spirit guiding and filling us, our witnessing will not be effective. When we witness at an event or one on one, it is essential that we are relying on the Holy Spirit to convict and bring the person to understand and trust Jesus to be their Savior. Pray that every one of our SOS Events volunteers are filled with the Spirit and if you want to be an soul winner, ask God to fill you with the Holy Spirit.

Acts 1:8 But ye shall receive power, after that the Holy Ghost is come upon you: and ye shall be witnesses unto me both in Jerusalem, and in all Judaea, and in Samaria, and unto the uttermost part of the earth.

Witnessing in the Business World

June 22, 2018

Carolyn Curtis had a great opportunity to share with business women. Women Empowering Business, FL, meets every Wednesday morning. Witnessing for the Lord wherever we can.

Joshua 1:8 This book of the law shall not depart out of thy mouth; but thou shalt meditate therein day and night, that thou mayest observe to do according to all that is written therein: for then thou shalt make thy way prosperous, and then thou shalt have good success.

Time

June 20, 2018

Do you ever feel like time flies and you don’t have enough hours in the day to get everything done? We live in a world that keeps us so busy that sometimes we neglect the important things, friends, family but most importantly God. He should be the first priority in our lives and everyday should start out with reading His Word and prayer. If we take that time the rest will fall into place and we can accomplish what needs to be done.

Matthew 6:33 But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you.

Entertainment

June 18, 2018

Entertainment is important to us as Christians especially in the USA where we have so much time to spend on sports, hobbies, TV or whatever we do for relaxation. The Bible tells us that whatever we do, do it for the glory of God. How we spend our “free” time is important. We must be careful to watch (TV or movies) and listen (music or conversation) to things that will bring glory to God in our personal lives and for those around us who look to us for spiritual guidance.

1 Corinthians 10:31 Whether therefore ye eat, or drink, or whatsoever ye do, do all to the glory of God.

Family

June 13, 2018

You may be from a very large family or a small one, but being part of a family is a great blessing. Family sticks together through good times and bad. Someone is there to be with you to join in laughter or tears. Siblings have a special bond that should last for a lifetime. Maybe you are an only child or have had what seems to be an unrepairable disagreement with a family member. Good news! If you have accepted Jesus as your Savior, you are in the family of God and you have a friend that is closer than a brother. Jesus is with you always and you can go to Him with your joys and sorrows.

Proverbs 18:24 A man that hath friends must shew himself friendly: and there is a friend that sticketh closer than a brother.
