Talladega NASCAR Races

April 27, 2019

3 SOS Events volunteers waiting for race car fans to stop and see the “3 Things God Can Not Do” at the Talladega Races. Today is the trials for tomorrow’s big race and many people walk by the booth as they look to see all the vendors products. They come to be part of the experience, to eat food, buy race car memorabilia, but they do not expect to find Jesus.

Please pray with us today that many souls will come to know and accept Jesus as their Savior.

2 Corinthians 6:2

(For he saith, I have heard thee in a time accepted, and in the day of salvation have I succoured thee: behold, now is the accepted time; behold, now is the day of salvation.)

National Pretzel Day

April 26, 2019

Sometimes we need something to make us smile. Everyday there is a Special National Day for something on that date that you probably never heard of. Today is April 26 and it is National Pretzel Day. Would the average person celebrate it. No! But it is a fun fact to make your Friday a little bit brighter.

Also, a reminder that with Jesus everyday is special and we do not need a special day to honor Him.

Psalms 145:2 Every day will I bless thee; and I will praise thy name for ever and ever.

Happy Resurrection Day

The Tomb is Sealed

April 20, 2019

Jesus is dead. The tomb is sealed. The disciples are in shock and grief. Is there no hope?

The days between the crucifixion and resurrection must have been really hard for the followers of Jesus. The One they had put their trust in, the One who was going to be King. Confused, sorrowful and disappointed they probably did nothing. Some waited together and others waited alone. People react differently when someone they love dies.

Today there are many people who have the same reaction to Jesus. Some doubt. Some do not believe in Him. Others reject Him. They do not realize what He can do for them.

Today is the day before Resurrection Sunday. Are you like these people or are you excited about tomorrow? The tomb did not stay sealed. The stone rolled away and JESUS arose. Let us celebrate the glorious resurrection not only tomorrow but everyday. JESUS lives…

Mark 16:6 And he saith unto them, Be not affrighted: Ye seek Jesus of Nazareth, which was crucified: he is risen; he is not here: behold the place where they laid him.

The Cross

April 19, 2019

John 19:17 & 18 And he bearing his cross went forth into a place called the place of a skull, which is called in the Hebrew Golgotha: Where they crucified him, and two other with him, on either side one, and Jesus in the midst.

John 19:30 When Jesus therefore had received the vinegar, he said, It is finished: and he bowed his head, and gave up the ghost.

Two Gardens

April 18, 2019

The Garden of Eden— where God put Adam and Eve to enjoy the pleasure of life and commune with Him….Until the devil tempted Adam and Eve and SIN entered into the lives of all mankind. From that moment on “all have sinned and come short of the glory of God.” That gave mankind no hope of going to Heaven without some payment for sin.

The Garden of Gethsemane— where JESUS went to pray. 3 times He asked His Father to remove the cup of wrath He was about to drink, but each time He submitted to the Father’s will. He was “exceedingly sorrowful unto death,” In this garden Jesus surrendered his earthly life to die on the cross for the sins of mankind. Jesus sacrifice was payment for our sin if we accept Him as our Savior.

JESUS is God.

John 1:14 And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, (and we beheld his glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father,) full of grace and truth.

Romans’ 10:9 – That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved.

Judas Iscariot

April 16, 2019

He walked with Jesus. He saw the miracles. He was trusted enough to handle the money. Others did not see him as evil. JUDAS. A name that even today we think of betrayal. Greed, for 30 pieces of silver he was willing to betray the ONE who loved him.

We wonder how he could do such a horrible thing and yet, do we betray Jesus with our attitude, our indifference or our sin? When Jesus told the disciples that one would betray Him, each one asked, “Is it I?”

Let us ask ourselves, do I betray my Savior, Jesus, in any way? If so let us ask His forgiveness had love Him as He loved us.

Matthew 26:25

Then Judas, which betrayed him, answered and said, Master, is it I? He said unto him, Thou hast said.

Palm Sunday

April 14, 2019

Is Jesus you King? Not only on Palm Sunday but always. A few days later these very people who honored Him with Palm branches, cried out crucify Him!

Where is Your Focus?

April 13, 2019

Easter is a week away and the question today is, Where is your focus? When we go shopping do we see symbols of Jesus resurrection or a huge display of Easter baskets, chocolates and jelly beans? Unfortunately, it is hard to find anything that honors the true meaning of the Easter, Jesus is alive!!

Celebrating with fun, food and family is great and there is nothing wrong with that, as long as our focus is on Jesus. Let’s be sure our children and grandchildren know and understand that Jesus died, was buried and three days later HE AROSE!!

Matthew 28:6 He is not here: for he is risen, as he said. Come, see the place where the Lord lay.

JESUS

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.
