What is Faith?

September 1, 2018

Hebrews 11:1 Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.

How can we have faith in God when our world seems to be falling apart? Disappointment, illness, accidents and many things happen in our lives to make our faith waver.

Faith is knowing that God is in control. Trusting Him even when we cannot understand why things are going so wrong. God does not promise Christians a trouble free life, what He does promise is that He is with us every step of the way. He will and He does work things out for our good.

You may ask me how I know. Today, I can Praise the Lord for taking me through the death of 2 sons, a grandchild and 2 Godly husbands and other trials and heartaches. God has never left me or forsaken me but always brings what I need when I need it. He uses those things in my life to bring encouragement to others. That is what faith in God does for me and He will do the same for you if you have faith in Him. The evidence of things unseen. Carolyn Curtis

Faith in God

August 27, 2018

Our faith is in the God of the Bible who keeps his promises.

Galatians 3:22 But the scripture hath concluded all under sin, that the promise by faith of Jesus Christ might be given to them that believe.

Acts 26:18 To open their eyes, and to turn them from darkness to light, and from the power of Satan unto God, that they may receive forgiveness of sins, and inheritance among them which are sanctified by faith that is in me.

Army Song

July 5, 2018

In honor of the brave men and women in the armed forces for the next few days the official songs will be posted for the branches of the USA military. Independence Day is now over but we should be thankful all year long for the freedom we enjoy in America. (Notice in the last verse the line “Faith in God”.

Verse:

March along, sing our song, with the Army of the free

Count the brave, count the true, who have fought to victory

We’re the Army and proud of our name

We’re the Army and proudly proclaim

Chorus:

First to fight for the right,

And to build the Nation’s might,

And The Army Goes Rolling Along

Proud of all we have done,

Fighting till the battle’s won,

And the Army Goes Rolling Along.

Refrain:

Then it’s Hi! Hi! Hey!

The Army’s on its way.

Count off the cadence loud and strong

For where e’er we go,

You will always know

That The Army Goes Rolling Along.

Verse:

Valley Forge, Custer’s ranks,

San Juan Hill and Patton’s tanks,

And the Army went rolling along

Minutemen, from the start,

Always fighting from the heart,

And the Army keeps rolling along.

(Refrain)

Verse:

Men in rags, men who froze,

Still that Army met its foes,

And the Army went rolling along.

Faith in God, then we’re right,

And we’ll fight with all our might,

As the Army keeps rolling along.

2 Timothy 2:3 Thou therefore endure hardness, as a good soldier of Jesus Christ.

Giants in Your Life

January 11, 2018

Sometimes we have things in our lives that are overwhelming. Problems, illness, relationships, sin and other things that seem impossible to overcome. Can the giant in your life be defeated? Absolutely! Remember David and Goliath. David was young and only a Shepard but he had faith that God would defeat Goliath, this 9 foot tall giant. Armed with a slingshot and five stones and faith he killed the giant that plagued Israel. God brought the victory. You can have victory in your life over and “giant” you are facing. Give it to the Lord, have faith and victory can be yours.

1 Corinthians 15:57 But thanks be to God, which giveth us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ.

Faith or Fear

September 28, 2017

“Basically, there are two paths you can walk: faith or fear. It’s impossible to simultaneously trust God and not trust God.”    Charles Stanley

Mark 4:40 And he said unto them, Why are ye so fearful? how is it that ye have no faith?

Jesus is God

June 19, 2017

On Monday’s some of us need a lift to start the week. Today let us look at one of the names of Jesus and what He means to us.

God – Jesus is called God in several passages in the Bible. Along with His sinless life, miracles, and resurrection from the dead, His claims to be God stand firm.

John 20:27&28 Then saith he to Thomas, Reach hither thy finger, and behold my hands; and reach hither thy hand, and thrust it into my side: and benot faithless, but believing. And Thomas answered and said unto him, My Lord and my God.

Salt and Light

February 12, 2017

Matthew 5 is about being distinct in character. How a Christian is to be clearly different from this world, noticeably different in a good way. This particular teaching was coming from the mouth of Jesus Himself. He not only said how we are to be distinct, but when we are, we are blessed with a true happiness & peace that only God gives. Plus He tells what we would obtain for being distinct. We are called to be the salt of the earth and the light of the world. Christ urges us to be a good example. I challenge you to read Matthew chapter 5 and be determined to be distinct in this world and watch for your blessings.

Matthew 5:13-16 (KJV) Ye are the salt of the earth: but if the salt have lost his savour, wherewith shall it be salted? it is thenceforth good for nothing, but to be cast out, and to be trodden under foot of men. Ye are the light of the world. A city that is set on an hill cannot be hid. Neither do men light a candle, and put it under a bushel, but on a candlestick; and it giveth light unto all that are in the house. Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father which is in heaven.

Transformation

February 6, 2017

Being willing to let the Lord change us is an important part of our growth. In Romans 12:1-2, God tells us three things on how we can partner with Him for internal and external change. 1) Present your life, your work and your ministry to Him, 2) Don’t follow the pattern of the world, as you might miss out on the radical changes He wants for you and 3) Renew your mind. This can be done by staying in the Scriptures and praying.

Romans 12:1-2 (KJV) And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect will of God.

Look to Jesus

January 4, 2017

The SOS Events office is full of activity as the new year begins. Time for tax deductible receipts to go out, revision of the manual, scheduling for trainings and events for 2017 and plans for new areas and events.

When the staff is busy there is the enemy who is busy also trying to upset whatever we do for the Lord. The devil has already been defeated by our Lord and Savior Jesus. So we will put our trust in Him and just keep keeping on. If you are discouraged when things seem to be going wrong, look to Jesus in faith to bring you through.

Hebrews 12:2 Looking unto Jesus the author and finisher of our faith; who for the joy that was set before him endured the cross, despising the shame, and is set down at the right hand of the throne of God.
