Christmas Condensed

December 11, 2017

“If we could condense all the truths of Christmas into only three words, these would be the words: “God with us.” We tend to focus our attention at Christmas on the infancy of Christ. The greater truth of the holiday is His deity. More astonishing than a baby in the manger is the truth that this promised baby is the omnipotent Creator of the heavens and the earth!”

John MacArthur

Matthew 1:23

Behold, a virgin shall be with child, and shall bring forth a son, and they shall call his name Emmanuel, which being interpreted is, God with us.

People Watching

December 5, 2017

Do you like to watch people. Some are tall, others short, some thin others heavy. We see the mothers with small children to the elderly which have a hard time getting around. People of all colors, from the very fair skin to the darkest golden brown. Some dress in expensive clothing while others are tattered, and some wear hardly any clothes at all. What a variety of people on the earth and God gave life to them all. However, that He gave them life at birth does not mean they will live with Him in Heaven for all eternity. To get to Heaven no matter what their status on earth they (and you) must be born again.

John 3:3 Jesus answered and said unto him, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God.

God’s Creation

December 4, 2017

Watching the sunrise is a time realize how wonderful and beautiful is God’s creation. The colors and majesty in His handiwork is amazing. If you are too busy this time of year to look up and see Him in the beauty around you, you are too busy. Take a minute or two today and appreciate what God has done.

Genesis 1:1 In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth.

December is Here

December 1, 2017

The month that opens the Christmas season is here. Excitement builds, especially for children. Unfortunately, the true meaning of Christmas is lost in the expectation of gifts, holiday movies and Santa. As parents and grandparents we must teach our children about Jesus. Christmas is a perfect opportunity to tell them, as well as others, what Christmas truly means. Jesus was born, died and rose again so they can be saved from sin. Let us use this season to be witnesses to our family, friends and neighbors.

John 3:17 For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved.

Busy Day

November 22, 2017

Tomorrow is Thanksgiving and many people are very busy today. Traveling, cooking, shopping and thinking about the football game or the Thanksgiving Day Parade. The thing that gets left out is the most important thing. Why we have Thanksgiving. It is a day set aside to worship God for His bountiful blessings. A day to thank Him for out homes, families and safety throughout the past year. Let us stop the hustle and bustle and give Him the thanks He deserves tomorrow. A good idea would be to go around the table and ask everyone for one thing they are thankful for. Everyone can participate from a small child to the oldest adult. Have a great rest of the day and have a Happy Thanksgiving.

Ephesians 5:20

Giving thanks always for all things unto God and the Father in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ;

One Purpose

Matthew 5:16 Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father which is in heaven.

To God Be The Glory

October 25, 2017

Everything that is done and accomplished by SOS Events Ministry is done because God gives us the wisdom, power and strength to do what He asks us to do. Many times it is not easy as the enemy tries to stop us from doing God’s work, but God always gives what we need when we need it and souls are saved, volunteers come through and the results are His. To God Be the glory great things He has done and continues to do through this ministry. Please keep us in prayer, especially this very busy week with many events scheduled.

Romans 16:27 To God only wise, be glory through Jesus Christ for ever. Amen.

Rainbows

September 21, 2017

This photo was taken yesterday just before Prayer Meeting in Appomattox, VA. What a beautiful reminder of God’s love and protection for us. His promises are true. He promised never to destroy the earth again with a flood, and though we see storms in local areas, He also promised that He would be with us through the storm and reminds us with a beautiful rainbow.

Genesis 9:16 And the bow shall be in the cloud; and I will look upon it, that I may remember the everlasting covenant between God and every living creature of all flesh that is upon the earth.

God’s Plan for Expansion 

September 18, 2017

The cell phone rings and I can’t get to it fast enough. Voicemail from an unknown phone number shows up on the screen from another state. Listen to the message. Someone wants information about SOS Events Ministry from Tennessee. His church already does Events and wants to use the “3 Things God Can Not Do” to win souls. What a blessing. There is a small SOS Events team in Tennesee currently only less than two hours away from this church. Another opportunity to expand and see more souls won to Christ. God is blessing the Ministry once again without any promotion on our part. Praise the Lord.

1 Corinthians 3:6 I have planted, Apollos watered; but God gave the increase.
