Take Down A Wall

July 13, 2017

Can a problem ever be good? Yes, when The space you have is too small for workers at SOS Events ministry. Our faithful Senior Servants come once a month to help us get out our newsletter. The group gets larger every month for which we are very thankful. The solution is to take down a wall to enlarge the space. It reminds me that sometimes we have a wall in our heart that may keep blessings out of our lives. It may be a relationship with a family member or friend. It may be some sin that is keeping us from our fellowship with God. If you have put up a wall that needs to be torn down, do it. You will be amazed that your problem has turned into a blessing.

Ephesians 2:14 For he is our peace, who hath made both one, and hath broken down the middle wall of partition between us;

Fellowship

November 9, 2015

Pastor Romero and his wife, Maria stopped by Saturday to get supplies and turn in 79 decisions slips from the Flea Market in Lakeland, Fl.

It is always a joy to see them and fellowship. Maria speaks no English and we speak no Spanish but somehow the love of Jesus shines through and we communicate. When the pastor prays in Spanish, we know through the Holy Spirit that his prayers for us and the ministry reach the Father in Heaven.

Join with us in prayer for the Romeros and their church. He told us that the church has tripled in size since they have been witnessing at the flea market.

1 John 1:7  But if we walk in the light, as he is in the light, we have fellowship one with another, and the blood of Jesus Christ his Son cleanseth us from all sin.

Communication = Relationship

October 7, 2015

“Without communication there is no relationship.”

This quote is one of the things that a Pastor, whose name I have forgotten, preached many years ago that made a great difference in my life. 

He was speaking about our relationship with God. Communication is a connection, a way to express thoughts, feelings and action to one another.

To have a relationship with God we MUST communicate. How? We talk to Him through prayer and He talks to us through His Word and the Holy Spirit. It has to be a regular thing. He desires us to come to Him daily for that true intimate relationship with him.

The same thing is true with our relationships with family and friends. If we do not keep communication active the relationship fades and can die. 

If you are out of fellowship with God, He is waiting for your relationship to begin again. Pray and ask His forgiveness for your neglect and that wonderful joy of communication with God will be restored immediately.

Maybe there is someone that you haven’t communicated with in a long time. Today, there is no excuse with email, Facebook, Phone and all the modern ways we have to talk to our friends and family. You may not get an immediate response but do not give up. Those relationships can be mended or improved but not without communication.

Hebrews 13:15-16 By him therefore let us offer the sacrifice of praise to God continually, that is, the fruit of our lips giving thanks to his name. But to do good and to communicate forget not: for with such sacrifices God is well pleased.

Senior Servants

September 4, 2015

The SOS Senior Servants met yesterday for the first time since June. It was a great joy to renew our fellowship with these dear ladies. In just two and one half hours they got over 2500 newsletters ready for mailing, then enjoyed food and fellowship. 

These faithful Servants need prayer as many have illnesses, two have children with cancer and one has become a widow in the last month. Please join in prayer for them. 

 1 John 1:7 But if we walk in the light, as he is in the light, we have fellowship one with another, and the blood of Jesus Christ his Son cleanseth us from all sin. 

66 New Salvations

May 22, 2015

It is always a joy to have Pastor Romero and his wife Maria stop in for a visit. Sometimes the communication is a little difficult because of the language barrier but the fellowship is always sweet. 

When he prays in Spanish we do not understand one word but the Holy Spirit is there and we feel His presence. 

Yesterday they stopped by to get some supplies and brought 66 salvation cards for SOS to process and record. What a blessing. Maria is a wonderful soul winner and so humble she hides her face if she is given any recognition. This couple loves the Lord and are faithful servants. 

Matthew 25:21 His lord said unto him, Well done, thou good and faithful servant: thou hast been faithful over a few things, I will make thee ruler over many things: enter thou into the joy of thy lord.
