Work vs. Handouts

January 23, 2018

The Bible has a lot to say about working and providing for yourself and your family. Unless we are too old, too sick, or a caregiver for children or someone in our family we should work. If you cannot find the job you are qualified for take anything until something better comes along. A young man could not find a job and came to do hard outside work for SOS Events. He was not only on time but would come at least 15 minutes early. He worked diligently for small pay. We prayed and within a month he had a great paying job where he made an excellent wage plus benefits. We sure miss this hard worker. Christians, GOD will supply.

2 Thessalonians 3:10 For even when we were with you, this we commanded you, that if any would not work, neither should he eat.

Do Something

October 24, 2017

John 9:4 I must work the works of him that sent me, while it is day: the night cometh, when no man can work.

It Takes Time

October 2, 2017

Sometimes we get discouraged, thinking that what we do for the Lord has not been successful. Handing out tracts, teaching a class, witnessing and we think nothing happens. Sometimes it takes a long time before we see the results of our labors. Last week we got a call from a man in Kentucky. He had been trained a year ago as a trainer with SOS Events. He had a display board, tracts and all the material necessary to get into an event, but we did not hear from him. But, after a year, he decided to get busy and start doing events. This first event is October 8 and he hopes to have several more during this autumn season. This example is repeated many times in SOS Events ministry. Sometimes it’s even years before people decide to use what they have been taught.

Galatians 6:9 And let us not be weary in well doing: for in due season we shall reap, if we faint not.

Monday Morning

July 10, 2017

A new beginning of the work week for many people. Some love the thought of going to work, as it is pleasurable to them. Others are unhappy because they hate their job but have to work. Some are not working and would love to be able to go to work. Maybe illness, loss of job or circumstances keep them from working. Then there are vacations this time of year and this week is full of plans for family, fun and adventure. Whatever your day brings forth one thing to remember, this is the day that the Lord made, we are to be glad and rejoice in it.

Philippians 4:4 Rejoice in the Lord alway: and again I say, Rejoice.

Work Of The Lord

July 7, 2017

SOS Events Ministry is blessed to have a group of ladies that come faithfully once a month to help get out the newsletter. Yesterday, 18 worked diligently and by 11:30 everything was finished. Thank you Senior Servants for the work you do.

1 Corinthians 15:58 Therefore, my beloved brethren, be ye stedfast, unmoveable, always abounding in the work of the Lord, forasmuch as ye know that your labour is not in vain in the Lord.

Retirement 

May 9, 2017

Carolyn Curtis is blessed to celebrate her daughter, Judy’s retirement. They are spending a few days at Panama City Beach in Florida enjoying the beautiful weather, good food and fellowship. Even Jesus got away to rest for awhile, but there is nowhere in the Bible that talks about retirement from God’s work. In fact, Christians who are blessed with good health and do not have to go to a secular job should spend more tim working for the Lord. If you are blessed to be in that position and are looking for a way to Serve Our Savior contact SOS Events ministry and we will help you to get started on the best “job” you will ever have and the pay is great….treasure in Heaven. (All our workers are volunteers)

Living in the Graveyard?

April 3, 2017

Someone said that “Florida is a graveyard for Christians.” The meaning: they move to Florida to “retire” and they think their work is done including work for the Lord. Sometimes it is hard to get older folks to do anything for Jesus and yet they are the ones who have the time and resources to do more for Him than they ever could when they were working. God intends ALL of us us to work until He calls us home no matter what our age. Are you living in the graveyard?

Do It Right

March 24, 2017

If you don’t have time to do a job right, what makes you think you’ll have time to do it over?

1 Corinthians 14:40 Let all things be done decently and in order.

We Need YOU!

February 8, 2017

The Florida Strawberry Festival is about a month away. We are in full swing with trainings for those that would like to help share The Three Things God Cannot Do at the festival booth. A total of 132 slots need filled during the 11 days of the event.  If you would like to train to help share the 3 Things please contact the ministry through our website  www.sosevents.org where you are able to view the 3 Things God Cannot Do or you can go to SignUpGenius for the calendar and choose your spot.

Last year over 200 people come to know the Lord as their Savior. We are already praying for those that will work in the booth as well as those that will come by the booth to hear and trust Christ.

We are asking for your prayers and if availability and location allows you to commit to help this year we look forward to hearing from you.

Matthew 9:37 (KJV) Then saith he unto his disciples, The harvest truly is plenteous, but the labourers are few;

Servanthood

Yesterday at the ministry, the SOS Events Senior Servant ladies once again met to stuff, label and seal the newsletters. Praise the Lord for their faithfulness, cheerful heart and gracious spirit.

Numbers 6:24-26 (KJV)

The Lord bless thee, and keep thee: The Lord make his face shine upon thee, and be gracious unto thee: The Lord lift up his countenance upon thee, and give thee peace.
