Opportunities

February 27, 2019

Every time our phone rings it gives us an opportunity to witness or encourage someone. We get calls that are very pleasant, from family or friends. We can use these calls to encourage and pray for each other. It’s a great way to stay in touch with loved ones far away.

We also get calls that are extremely annoying, like a solicitor trying to get us to donate or buy something we don’t want or need. Our first reaction is to hang up..but wait. It may be an opportunity to witness to that person. They may listen or they will hang up on us. Then we have accomplished something. A seed planted or we have gotten rid of an annoying call. Let’s use every opportunity that God gives us to bring honor to Him.

Galatians 6:10 As we have therefore opportunity, let us do good unto all men, especially unto them who are of the household of faith.

Favorite Bible Verse

February 20, 2019

I could not resist this beautiful baby’s photo, along with my favorite Bible verse. But the next verse along with this one completes what God is telling us.

Proverbs 3:5&6 Trust in the Lord with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding. In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths.

Psalms 24:5 He shall receive the blessing from the Lord, and righteousness from the God of his salvation.

A Special Valentine

February 14, 2019

Today is Valentines Day. Special because the one we love gets an opportunity to tell us how much he or she loves us. Weddings take place on this day, couples have plans for a romantic dinner, jewelry, cards, flowers and candy given as a token of love. A wonderful day for you, if you have that special someone in your life, but some of you do not have someone to give a gift or say “I love you.” You may be sad today.

This is a special Valentine for you.

1 John 4:16 And we have known and believed the love that God hath to us. God is love; and he that dwelleth in love dwelleth in God, and God in him.

SOS Events Trainings

February 12, 2019

Do people need to be trained to win souls? To witness at an event with SOS Events Ministry they do. Why? Sometimes Christians have fear or feeling of rejection. At a public event there are many things that need to be followed to be a successful soul winner. Getting a persons attention and presenting the Gospel in a short amount of time. What to do with children when a parent is not present. How to handle objections and many more things to be an effective witness.

SOS Events provides answers and encouragement to Christians when they come to a training. It gives them confidence and boldness, realizing that they will work together with an experienced team at the event. This time of year in Florida, several trainings are scheduled. If you live in the Lakeland, Plant City or Tampa area and would like to be a part of this growing ministry, contact the home office, 813-494-7512 or email info@sosevents.org to schedule a time to be trained. Strawberry Festival in Plant City is 2 weeks away and workers are invited to join us in the harvest of souls.

The most important training, however, is prayer and dependence on the Holy Spirit.

Acts 5:32 And we are his witnesses of these things; and so is also the Holy Ghost, whom God hath given to them that obey him.

The Perfect Church

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

God is Love

February 1, 2019

February is the month we think about Love. Some of us have a wonderful love story and others have only heartache and disappointment in love, but for all of us there is Someone who loves us more than we can ever imagine. God loves us so much He sent His Only Son, Jesus, to die on the cross so we can have eternal life. There is no greater love.

John 3:16 For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.

January Ends

January 31, 2019

How was your month? Most of us have had many days of cold weather and our soul winning opportunities were few. Do not be discouraged. It is a great time to plan for warmer weather. Looking for future events? Look on line to your local Chamber of Commerce. Many events are free or of low cost to a non profit organization. SOS Events qualifies. You have to go shopping, hand out a tract or witness to the person in the checkout line. When you mail a letter, put a tract in it. Witness whenever and wherever you can. February starts tomorrow. New month, new opportunities. Let us spread the message of God’s love.

1 John 4:9 In this was manifested the love of God toward us, because that God sent his only begotten Son into the world, that we might live through him.

Stormy Days

January 28, 2019

On a cold stormy day, we do not feel like doing anything but stay inside, wrap in a warm fuzzy blanket and do nothing. When storms of life happen, we feel the same way. Just stay inside, wrap up in our sorrow and pain and do nothing. Our attitude reflects the storm, however, God tells us to behave differently in those circumstances. He is with us, will not forsake us and gives us the strength to go on to serve Him.

Isaiah 49:10 Fear thou not; for I am with thee: be not dismayed; for I am thy God: I will strengthen thee; yea, I will help thee; yea, I will uphold thee with the right hand of my righteousness.

Psalms 50:15 And call upon me in the day of trouble: I will deliver thee, and thou shalt glorify me.

Psalms 138:8 The LORD will perfect that which concerneth me: thy mercy, O LORD, endureth for ever: forsake not the works of thine own hands.
