Have a Good Morning

April 14, 2018

Some people have to start their day with a cup of coffee. They feel they cannot function without that coffee in the morning. Others have a certain routine that gets them moving without coffee or breakfast. However you start your day, there is one thing that is essential, that is having time to communicate with The Lord with Bible reading and prayer. Don’t have time you think. Your day will go much better if you start it with Him.

Proverbs 8:17 I love them that love me; and those that seek me early shall find me.

Spiritual Understanding

April 13, 2018

Matthew 13:13 Therefore speak I to them in parables: because they seeing see not; and hearing they hear not, neither do they understand.

Jesus spoke in parables so that true believers would understand what He wanted them to know and the unbelievers could not understand His instructions. Sometimes our physical seeing gets dim or out of focus and our hearing gets dull as we get older, but we must not allow our spiritual eyes to to be out of focus or our spiritual hearing dulled. How? Just as we correct our physical problem with glasses or hearing aids, we correct our spiritual problems by reading scripture and praying everyday. Allow Jesus to speak to you clearly and pray for understanding.

Brothers and Sisters

April 11, 2018

The USA has many dates are set aside to honor special people. April 11, yesterday, was Siblings Day. A time to be thankful for your brothers and sisters. However, some of us do not have siblings or maybe there has been some family disagreements that have kept you apart. Good news, as Christians we have many brothers and sisters in Christ. There is a bond with other Christians that can even be closer than our blood siblings. Let us be thankful for our fellow Christians and appreciate the relationship that we have with them.

1 Thessalonians 4:9 But as touching brotherly love ye need not that I write unto you: for ye yourselves are taught of God to love one another.

Having a Bad Day?

April 10, 2018

Sometimes we think we are having a “bad” day. Nothing goes right. We get frustrated and angry. When you have a day like that, (and we all have had them), STOP and think what Jesus did for us. What suffering He endured for us. Crucifixion is a horrible, painful death. Jesus willingly went to the cross so that we can have eternal life. Our troubles are small compared to what Jesus went through for us. So instead of complaining and getting angry, think about Jesus and thank Him for one blessing that He has given you today. The biggest one is eternal life. No more pain, sorrow or trouble is what we have to look forward to.

John 5:24 Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that heareth my word, and believeth on him that sent me, hath everlasting life, and shall not come into condemnation; but is passed from death unto life.

Spring Break

April 3, 2018

This is the time of year when students, teachers, businesses and others have “Spring Break”. People go about getting away from their regular routine to have fun, vacation and relax. Everyone needs to take time out for some relaxation or we get burned out. There is Someone who never stops taking care of us, He is always “on the job” Aren’t you glad that God never sleeps or takes a vacation from us. If you are taking a break, now or later, remember to keep in touch with Him. Do not get away from God. Continue to pray and read your Bible even if you are on Spring Break.

Psalms 121:3 He will not suffer thy foot to be moved: he that keepeth thee will not slumber.

Wednesday or Friday

March 28, 2018

The Bible says that Jesus was 3 days and 3 nights in the tomb before His resurrection. Biblical Scholars have different opinions of when He died. Some think Wednesday and others say Friday because time was calculated differently than our calendar today. Whenever you believe Jesus died, is not as important as you knowing and believing that Jesus died, was buried and rose again so that you might be saved. As Christians we can have different opinions about the times but we must agree to disagree “agreeably” and love one another.

Romans 10:9 That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved.

Forgiveness

March 26, 2018

Have you ever done something or said something you are truly sorry for? Maybe you hurt someone you love and need to ask forgiveness, but do not want to open that wound again. The Bible clearly states we need to forgive one another. In fact if a brother (another Christian) has hurt you, you are to go to them and ask their forgiveness. Somehow in our human minds that seems unfair, but think about our relationship to God. We have hurt Him many times, before salvation and especially after we have been saved. Disobedience, apathy and many other things too numerous to mention, and yet He in His love for us has forgiven us for ALL our sins. Let us show our love to Him by forgiving one another.

Mark 11:25 And when ye stand praying, forgive, if ye have ought against any: that your Father also which is in heaven may forgive you your trespasses

Newborn Christians

March 24, 2018

“Being a Christian is more than just an instantaneous conversion – it is a daily process whereby you grow to be more and more like Christ.” Billy Graham

Asking Jesus to be your Savior is just the beginning of the Christian life. That is why SOS Events Ministry sends every new convert Bible studies and gives their names to a local church. Newborn Christians need proper care to grow.

1 Peter 2:2 As newborn babes, desire the sincere milk of the word, that ye may grow thereby:

Bad News

March 21, 2018

The USA is in trouble within. Far too often there is news about a school being attacked, usually by a student. Children are killed or injured. Police officers are in constant danger, and some are shot doing their duty. Unrest—murders, robbery and every kind of sinful activity is reported everyday. It is discouraging to see the news on TV, social media or radio. When will it all end? The Bible says there is hope for our Nation. Christian it is up to us. We need to put God first, humble ourselves before Him. He will heal our land. If we don’t things will only get worse.

2 Chronicles 7:14 If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.
