Mature Christian

March 16, 2018

We have looked at several stages of Christianity in the last few days. The fruit of the Spirit is what a mature Christian should strive for. Are you fully grown as a Christian or are you still a baby or child in your Christian life?

New Event

January 13, 2018

SOS Events ministry has a booth to win souls at the Raising Cane Festival in Dade City, Florida, today. Please join with us in prayer that many will be saved and that our volunteers will be filled with the Holy Spirit.

Luke 14:23 And the lord said unto the servant, Go out into the highways and hedges, and compel them to come in, that my house may be filled.

Love

January 10, 2018

“Christianity is a love relationship between a child of God and his Maker through the Son Jesus Christ and the power of the Holy Spirit.” Adrian Rogers

Do you have a love relationship with the Lord Jesus Christ?

Matthew 22:37 Jesus said unto him, Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind.

Mary, Mother of Jesus

December 17, 2017

Mary, a young virgin, was engaged to Joseph. God chose her to be the mother of the Lord Jesus. When Gabriel came to her she was frightened at first, listened to his message and then was humble and honored. In those days being pregnant without marriage was a great disgrace but Mary was willing to obey.When the angel told her of Elisabeth’s pregnancy, Mary, went to stay with her. Elisabeth confirmed what the angel had told her because the baby leaped in her womb.

If you have not read and thought about the people in the unfolding Christmas story it would be good to read it again. We learn much about obedience and love of God as we realize that every person was human and had the same emotions, fears, joys and problems we do. Mary is a great example to us and she surely was blessed among women.

Luke 1:30-31 And the angel said unto her, Fear not, Mary:for thou hast found favour with God. And, behold, thou shalt conceive in thy womb, and bring forth a son, and shalt

Peace and Joy

December 26, 2016

Christmas is over, the presents are opened, leftovers are in the fridge and the cleanup and putting away of decorations has begun. Many people feel a letdown after the long awaited day is over. However for the Christian, the joy of knowing Jesus, not as a baby in a manger, but as our  Lord and Savior brings an inner peace and joy that only we can know.

May the sprit of “peace on earth, goodwill toward men” be with you today and throughout the year everyday.

Romans 15:13 Now the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing, that ye may abound in hope, through the power of the Holy Ghost.

Fruit of the Spirit

September 17, 2016

“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. 

Personal Witnessing

June 7, 2016

Events are a great place to win people to the Lord and the focus of SOS Events ministry, but we must not neglect personal witnessing as well.

Yesterday, Carolyn Curtis had an opportunity to witness and lead a serviceman to the Lord. Carlos came to find out why her tv was not working correctly. When he finished, she asked him if he knew the 3 Things God Can Not Do, and he said, “no”.

She handed him a “3 Things” tract and went through it with him including the “ABC’s”.  (If you do not know the 3 things go to SOS home page and scroll down)

Carlos prayed, and accepted Jesus as his Savior. 

It is so important to take advantage of every opportunity to tell someone about Jesus. You may be the only Christian that a person comes in contact with. Allow the Holy Spirit to direct you to lost people and fill you with boldness and power to witness.


Acts 1:8 But ye shall receive power, after that the Holy Ghost is come upon you: and ye shall be witnesses unto me both in Jerusalem, and in all Judaea, and in Samaria, and unto the uttermost part of the earth.

Who Has Power?

March 11, 2016

The last reason Christians do no win souls according to an article by Lifeway.

We’ve forgotten our source of power.Lastly, we don’t evangelize because we’ve mistakenly put ourselves at the center of evangelism. For many of us, our fears, our frustrations, our inability to talk about Jesus stems from a man-centered view of salvation. We really think it is us, our ingenuity, our power, our technique that delivers a soul from death to life. But salvation is not work we accomplish, but a work of the Holy Spirit. It is God who “quickens” the dead heart (Ephesians 2:1). It is the work of the Father to draw people to his son (John 8:44).

This means that in obeying the Great Commission, we can’t fail. Our job is not to do the saving, but do the sharing. Our job is to simply be faithful in declaring the word to those who haven’t heard. We are the ones God is using to share his message with the world. There are no others. (Romans 10:14). But we can rest in God’s sovereignty, motivated by the knowledge that if we share the news, people will repent and put their faith in Christ.
If Jesus is real in us, if Jesus is real in the people we lead, sharing Christ will be a natural outflow that will burst forward into our friendships, our neighbors, and our coworkers. The mission of God won’t be something we do on Sundays, but will be a way of life.

Acts 1:8  But ye shall receive power, after that the Holy Ghost is come upon you: and ye shall be witnesses unto me both in Jerusalem, and in all Judaea, and in Samaria, and unto the uttermost part of the earth.

God is Faithful

January 20, 2016

  
This is what it looks like when SOS Events is setting up for an event. On Saturday a team from SOS went to Sebring, FL to do an event at Camp Sparta. 15 souls were saved. Praise the Lord for His faithfulness. When one of the teams from SOS Events goes to win souls at an event God always blesses. We are His witnesses but He brings the conviction and saves by the power of the Holy Spirit.

1 Corinthians 1:9  God is faithful, by whom ye were called unto the fellowship of his Son Jesus Christ our Lord.

Prayer

September 27, 2015

John R. Rice was tremendous preacher many years ago. He wrote songs, books, and tracts. One of his books is “Prayer, Asking and Receiving.” The following quote is one way to help you know how to pray and get your prayers answered.

If you surrender yourself, and do not rush, but meditate on the Word of God, you will find prayer forming in your heart. It is a prayer inspired by the Holy Spirit, a prayer that God will be pleased to hear.              John R. Rice

Philippians 4:6 Be careful for nothing; but in every thing by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known unto God.
