Preparing for a Trip

April 23, 2019

When going on a trip, business or pleasure, we prepare by making sure we pack everything we may need. Proper clothing, toiletries and identification. We are looking forward to the trip with great anticipation.

We are preparing for the greatest trip we will ever take, the journey to Heaven. The preparation should be the most important thing on our minds. The first thing is salvation. No one enters Heaven without it. Then, daily Bible reading and prayer. A pure lifestyle is important, also. Are you ready for this trip?

John 3:16 For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.

Alabama SOS Events

April 22, 2019

Saturday was one of those days when you can sit back an marvel at God’s perfect timing. Beth and Wesley were delayed at the New Site Car Show and Trade Day until after 8 am because of rain. They set up the SOS Events Ministry tent and shared the Gospel with a very small amount of passersby due to the windy and rainy weather. After a few hours most people were leaving so they decided to call it a day.

God’s perfect timing. Beth needed to go to Foodland to grab a bell pepper for chilli and that was God’s Divine Appointment. Wesley got out and shared a tract with Montavius who was on his break (again perfect timing) and he wasn’t 100% sure that he was going to heaven. He asked Jesus Christ to be his Lord and Savior right in front of the store as people walked by. And the angels and heaven rejoiced over the one who was added to the Kingdom!!!

So as we know sometimes it is not about sharing with a lot of people it’s about God’s perfect timing and divine appointments he has set up for us . Thank you Lord for a rainy and windy day so we could be right where you needed us to be and for the Gospel to be shared to a open heart . This is what Montavius said after he prayed “After I prayed a heavy weight was lifted from my spirit. I feel all the love of God flowing all over me He is awesome!! ” This is what a tract handed out and a burden for the lost can do. It was a great day Serving Our Savior!!!

Proverbs 3:6 In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths.

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.

Just One

April 11, 2019

At the Flea Market yesterday, just one Salvation was recorded. The following story is an example of the SOS Events volunteer that goes to an event. That volunteer is like the little boy and the starfish is the person who trusted Jesus as their Savior. One life is saved and on the way to Heaven and the volunteer makes a big difference in that individual’s life.

“One day, an old man was walking along a beach that was littered with thousands of starfish that had been washed ashore by the high tide. As he walked he came upon a young boy who was eagerly throwing the starfish back into the ocean, one by one.”

Puzzled, the man looked at the boy and asked what he was doing. Without looking up from his task, the boy simply replied, “I’m saving these starfish, Sir”.

The old man chuckled aloud, “Son, there are thousands of starfish and only one of you. What difference can you make?”

The boy picked up a starfish, gently tossed it into the water and turning to the man, said, “I made a difference to that one!”

“I say unto you, that likewise joy shall be in heaven over one sinner that repenteth, more than over ninety and nine just persons, which need no repentance.”

‭‭Luke‬ ‭15:7‬ ‭KJV‬‬

Six Saved on Saturday

April 9, 2019

The crowd was sparse, even though it was a beautiful day in Florida. Maybe everyone went to the beach. But God was faithful and blessed the efforts of the volunteers with SOS Events Ministry. Six people accepted Jesus as their Savior.

Breanna, 10 years old stopped by with her Mother and several other children. She wanted to listen as the other children ran off to see other things. Her Mother was 100% sure she was going to Heaven but Breanna was not. With her Mother’s permission, Breanna asked Jesus to forgive her and invited Him to be her Savior. She is excited and looking forward to receiving her free Bible lesson.

Psalms 25:5 Lead me in thy truth, and teach me: for thou art the God of my salvation; on thee do I wait all the day.
