What is Our Duty?

114 Salvations in New York!

SOS Events volunteers reported 114 salvations at the 2 fairs held in Western New York State. 41 salvations at the Orleans County Fair and 73 at Genesee County Fair.

A special thank you to the volunteers who helped at both these events. Because the fairs were held at the same time, SOS Events volunteers were unable to be at either event as often as needed.

Truly, the opportunity was there for more people to be saved but SOS Events needed many more workers. Praise the Lord for the souls that were saved and hopefully next year many more Christians in that area will see the opportunity and volunteer to go and present the gospel.

Then saith he unto his disciples, The harvest truly is plenteous, but the labourers are few; Pray ye therefore the Lord of the harvest, that he will send forth labourers into his harvest. Matthew 9:37-38

The Great Commission

July 24, 2021

The biggest evil in the world are Christians who refuse to witness.
Jesus came to save the lost.

Going to church on Sunday, teaching Sunday school, doing good works is not the Great Commission.

The average person has at least 40 hours a week free time. Should we not use some of that time to tell someone about Jesus?
It is so simple. Hand out a tract while standing in a checkout line. Ask a person who called with a solicitation if they are sure of Heaven.

Everyone you come in contact with is an opportunity to witness.
The world is full of people who want to hear. Christian, we must tell them before it is too late.

SOS Ministry can teach you how to be an effective witness. Join with us today by watching the training videos.

Read Your Bible Everyday

July 20, 2021

Read your Bible.
Pray every day (repeat 3 times).
Read your Bible.
Pray every day.
And you’ll grow, grow, grow (repeat 3 times).
Read your Bible.
Pray every day.
And you’ll grow, grow, grow.

Don’t read your Bible.
Forget to pray (repeat 3 times).
Don’t read your Bible.
Forget to pray.
And you’ll shrink, shrink, shrink (repeat 3 times).
Don’t read your Bible.
Forget to pray.
And you’ll shrink, shrink, shrink.

I love this little kids song. I remember teaching it to my children and in Sunday School.

It may be a song for children, but the lesson is also great for adults. We grow in faith and our Christian walk when we read the Bible everyday. Remember, this is one of the ways GOD speaks to us. We grow closer to Him when we read and understand His Words.

All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness: 2 Timothy 3:16

How Is Your Vision?

July 15, 2021

Our vision is very important. To be able to see clearly is a blessing from God.

As we age our vision may become clouded. We may need glasses or even surgery to see clearly.

In our spiritual life we have the same problem. When we first become a new Christian our vision is clear. We want to obey God’s Word. We have a desire to see people saved.

Then we grow older in the faith and we get complacent. We are not as quick to do God’s will. We do not have a vision for people who are lost.

Are you loosing your spiritual vision? Ask God’s forgiveness and get clear vision again. Read the Bible daily and pray. Then use every opportunity to tell someone about Jesus. People are perishing without someone to tell them.

What a blessing to see clearly, both physically and spiritually.

Social Distancing

July 14, 2021

Everywhere we go the signs are still up. Stay 6 feet away from each other. In an elevator there was images of 4 sets of feet and a sign only 4 people in the elevator at a time. Are you social distancing?

The restrictions are being lifted in many places and there is different opinions on if these restrictions should be kept in place.

The one place that encourages us to get close is in God’s Word when He tells us to draw close to Him. No restrictions. Just call on Jesus and remember He is close to you at all times, if you have trusted Him as your Savior.

Psalms 73:28 – But it is good for me to draw near to God: I have put my trust in the Lord GOD, that I may declare all thy works.

Technology

July 9, 2021

Technology. It is amazing. We can be in one part of the world and communicate with people or control devices from thousands of miles away.

Technology can be used for evil like spreading pornography or it can be used for good, publishing Gods Word throughout the world.

As individuals we have abilities that are similar to technology. We can use our lives, living in sin or we can choose to accept Jesus as our Savior and live a good and fruitful life.

Romans 12:21 – Be not overcome of evil, but overcome evil with good.

Are You a Winner?

July 5, 2021


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

Christian First, Then Citizen of USA

July 3, 2021


As Christians we need to be proud to be Americans. We have responsibilities as citizens. Stand up for our freedoms given to us by the constitution. Vote so that the government is run by leaders of our choice. Teach our children and grandchildren, first the principles taught in the Bible, then the history of the USA.

Ephesians 6:14-17
Stand therefore, having your loins girt about with truth, and having on the breastplate of righteousness; And your feet shod with the preparation of tthe gospel of peace; Above all, taking the shield of faith, wherewith ye shall be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked. And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God
