Many of us remember the TV commercial about the elderly woman who was alone, fell in her home and "couldn't get up." She found herself in a bad situation. We all remember the woman's cry for help: "Help, I've fallen and I can't get up."
If you have ever hiked through a wooded area you understand, "following the path."
Jesus said, "Greater love has no one than this, that he lay down his life for his friends." During this Memorial Day weekend, we take the time to remember those who have given their lives for us. I know that we, as a nation, have often debated the merits of a particular war. The reasons for conflict have been many and varied.
A few weeks ago I started walking/running in the mornings, mainly for health reasons. It has been hard to be consistent so I only do this activity a few days a week.
This weekend, most of us are off from work and are enjoying life and the weekend.
The Apostle Paul wrote, "Grace be to you and peace from God our Father, and from the Lord Jesus Christ. Blessed be God, even the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of mercies, and the God of all comfort; Who comforteth us in all our tribulation, that we may be able to comfort them which are in any trouble, by the comfort wherewith we ourselves are comforted of God" (2 Cor. 1:2 – 4). In a world where trouble waits around every corner it is good to know that Christians do not have to face trouble alone, we ...
Writing a column like this can be a challenge. After all, I also preach and teach two or three times every week. I don't want to use the same material over and over. I want to say something fresh and relevant. Still, the Christian message really hasn't changed in the last 2000 years. It is still about what Jesus did for us when He gave His life so that we might live.
Recently in a youth meeting we were discussing prayer requests when one of the teens started talking about a new student at his school. The student got into a discussion about religion and let him and his friends, who are professed Christians, know that they didn't want anything to do with God and would rather serve Satan.
Members of Baconton Missionary Baptist Church of Walthourville are celebrating 141 years of service. For most of its existence, the church was in Allenhurst. However, the city of Walthourville recently incorporated the land the church sits on.
On behalf of the United Ministerial Alliance of Liberty County, I congratulate everyone who is graduating this season. We know it's not easy to complete such a great task, but through it all you did it.
The ladies of the Living Word Church of God just spent an exciting weekend at their first Bible conference.
I just received news that my favorite uncle is close to passing away. He had cancer a few years ago that went into remission but recently it returned. The good news is that he has trusted Christ for forgiveness and has assurance of where he will end up after death.
The older one gets and the more one tries to do, the more the years seem to fly by. From time to time we need to reflect on what is going on in our lives. Most will do this about school, jobs, finances, etc., and it is good to do those things. But let us not forget to look at our spiritual well being.
One of the funniest lines I've ever read was in a newspaper in Las Vegas, Nevada, the day after the Southern Baptist Convention met there in the late 1980's. I know, who would have thought that Southern Baptists, of all people, would meet in Las Vegas. But we did, and evidently made an impression on a number of people. The writer simply stated, "Ten thousand Southern Baptists descended on Las Vegas earlier this week with a twenty dollar bill in one hand, and a copy of the Ten Commandments in the other. They didn't break either one ...
I remember being in church a number of years ago when my pastor was making closing announcements. The week had been designated "Home and Family Week," and family had been the sermon topic for the day.
All throughout Jesus' ministry, he constantly condemned the religious leaders of his day for being like their forefathers.
I'm sure you have seen the commercial at some point. She says, "It has to be true. I read it on the Internet." And then she meets her date -the "French supermodel." And you chuckle because you know someone who is that naïve.
Do you understand that Jesus loves you? Yes, you - you are important to God.
Recently, a celebrity made the news because of an illness and death.
I recently spent much of a day on hold with customer service - with two different companies. I pressed 2 and 3 and the pound sign and almost every other button on my phone as I was transferred back and forth.
The sacrifice made by Christ caused him to suffer humiliation and pain.
Second Corinthians 5:20 says, "We are therefore Christ's ambassadors, as though God were making his appeal through us." The writer here is saying that if the message of Jesus Christ is going to get out, it will be through his followers.
I'm so excited - he's coming home this weekend. By the time you read this, he should be here.
It is in Christ whom man can find victory.
