  • This word is small, but meaningful

    Small words sometimes have great meaning. Such is the word “till” in 1 Corinthians 11:26.

    Paul says, “For as often as you eat this bread and drink the cup, you proclaim the Lord’s death till He come.” The apostle says the Lord’s Supper is a reminder against man’s forgetfulness.

    “Till” is a waiting word. Jesus said to his disciples in John 14:1-3 “I go to prepare a place for you … I will come again.” We are to wait until he returns. He left earth, but he will return.

  • First Baptist Hodgenville celebrates 133 years

  • America’s founding fathers believed in Christian principles

    There exists in our country a decided lack of understanding of many people.

  • Beliefs make a difference

    Our beliefs are very important for they control our lives and our destinies.  Paul says they are responsible for changing us from the kingdom of darkness to the kingdom of light (Colossians 1:13-14). He goes ahead to say that our beliefs make a difference in the way we live (Colossians 3:1-17). Because we believe in Christ there are things which are to be put out of our daily lives and other things which are to be included.

    Belief in God’s love for us changes us for time and eternity. “For God so loved …” (John 3:16)

  • Life is a required course

    In the university of life, some courses are required of us.  Some we may choose, but others are required.

    Life itself is a required course in which we have no say. We did not choose to be born, but now that we are here, we can do nothing about it. We have to live. There is no escaping. You cannot destroy yourself. Life does not end at death. The story of the rich man and Lazarus in Luke 16 proves this. You had a beginning, but there is no ending. You must exist somewhere from now on.
