Caught Up

August 13, 2016

         Caught Up Together
I sing hallelujah that Jesus is coming, Oh what the raising of life from the dead: the graves bursting open to give up God’s children, those bodies long moldering in graves dusty bed.

Chorus: Caught up together, together, caught up with Jesus and never to part; changed in a moment to be with my Savior, caught up together never to part. 
John R. Rice

1 Thessalonians 4:17 Then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air: and so shall we ever be with the 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.

Make a Difference to Someone

“You can’t win everybody to the Lord, but you can always win somebody.” John R. Rice

John R. Rice was one of the greatest preachers on soul winning in times past. He was a man of few words unless he was in the pulpit but when he spoke people listened.

This quote reminds me of a story I once read about a little boy on the beach. 

He was throwing starfish that had washed up on shore back in the water. There were hundreds of them. 

An old man came along and asked the boy why he was throwing them back in the water. “You can’t save them all. You can’t even tell the difference. There are still hundreds of them.”

As the little boy picked up another starfish, threw it in the water, he said, “It makes a difference to this one.”

We can make a difference, one soul at a time. Let’s go soulwinning. Don’t know how? SOS Events can help you.


And of some have compassion, making a difference: Jude 1:22
