Black Friday

November 25, 2016

Today is what America calls Black Friday! Christmas has become so commercialized that a lot of people will be in stores before dawn and many started on Thanksgiving day rushing for the best deals. By 5:30 AM many store were already out of some popular toys. 

Our extended family, married children and family not living in our home have decided not to exchange gifts this year but to spend time rather than money on one another. This will give the best gift of all to each other and that is true love and fellowship. It also will help each of us to focus on the true meaning of Christmas, the birth of our Lord Jesus Christ.

Matthew 1:18 Now the birth of Jesus Christ was on this wise: When as his mother Mary was espoused to Joseph, before they came together, she was found with child of the Holy Ghost.

“Being judgmental and condemning is not one of the gifts of the Spirit.” Billy Graham

Galatians 5:22-23 But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith, Meekness, temperance: against such there is no law. 

Gifts for Jesus

Two SOS Events workers from Alabama are pictured here telling people who came to a Christmas program  at church to check out the 3 Things God Can Not Do. 45 decisions for Jesus was recorded at this event.

Christmas season is a great time to witness for the Lord. Jesus is the reason for the season. What a wonderful gift to bring to Him on His birthday, new Christians who have accepted Him.

The wise men brought gifts of gold, frankincense and myrrh but we can give Him even greater gifts, first ourselves and then to bring others to Him by telling them of God’s great gift to us. Eternal life through Jesus Christ.

Matthew 2:11  And when they were come into the house, they saw the young child with Mary his mother, and fell down, and worshipped him: and when they had opened their treasures, they presented unto him gifts; gold, and frankincense, and myrrh.

The Reason for the Season

December 15, 2014

Many people are hustling to finish shopping for gifts, running at a fast pace to get the right present, get them wrapped and ready to see the happiness on the face of the recipient.
In all the preparation one thing is not even thought about. The most important Person, the Lord Jesus.
Christmas is a wonderful time of year but let us not leave out the reason for the season, Jesus. God gave us the most precious gift. We don’t have to shop for it or pay for it. All we have to do is accept it.
Jesus paid the price. If you have not received God’s Gift do it now. Ask Him to forgive your sins, believe He died for you and rose again, and call upon Him to save you. Your new life can begin today!

Romans 6:23
For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.
