  • COLUMN: Times change, God doesn't

    “No man shall be able to stand before you all the days of your life. As I was with Moses, so I will be with you.” Joshua 1:5

    Can you imagine trying to fill the shoes Moses wore? God had used him to turn the Nile River into blood, part the Red Sea, destroy the Egyptian army, receive his law on Mount Sinai and feed more than 2,000 Israelites each day in the wilderness.

  • Wilkinsons celebrate 11 years with First Baptist

     Elder Jerry and Rosalyn Wilkinson celebrated their 11th anniversary with First Baptist Hodgenville Sunday morning.

  • Interruptions offer an opportunity to witness

    Cal Thomas said, "Love talked about is easily ignored. But love demonstrated is irresistible.” 

    Jesus not only talked about love and kindness, but he modeled it for us. In Luke 8:40-56 Jesus showed kindness to two individuals and thus illustrated for us ways we may show kindness to others.

  • COLUMN: Stop comparing yourself to others

    Let us not become conceited provoking one another, envying one another. Galatians 5:26

    Are you so busy analyzing your vices that you don’t have time to appreciate your virtues? Are you so caught up in inspecting others that you don’t value what God has given you?

    God never intended you to compare yourself with anybody. We will not compare ourselves with each other as if one of us were better and another worse. We have far more interesting things to do with our lives.

    Each of us is an original.

  • Cameron Mills to speak at Gospel of Grace

    University of Kentucky national champion and record-holder Cameron Mills will speak and give his testimony at 6 p.m., Sunday, Nov. 13, at Gospel of Grace Baptist Church, 3426 Old Elizabethtown Road in Hodgenville. There will be a brief meet-and-greet following the event, and light refreshments will be served. The public is invited.

  • TOUCHPOINTS: A true friend is loyal - always

    True friendship requires loyalty during all kinds of times. 

    There is a vast difference between knowing someone well and being a true friend.  When loyalty is present a relationship is secure and solid. When it is not, we live in insecurity and fear. 

    As a loyal person we say, “It doesn't matter what happens around us or between us there is nothing that can make me turn my back on you.”

    I Corinthians 13:7 says: “Love always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.”

  • COLUMN: One good deed deserves another

    "One good deed deserves another." We have heard this all of our lives.

  • COLUMN: Greater awareness follows real encounter with God

    Woe is me! For I am undone. Because I am a man of unclean lips and I dwell in the midst of a people of unclean lips; for my eyes have seen the King, the Lord of Hosts. Isaiah 6:5

    After a successful crusade someone asked Billy Graham, “Is this revival?”

    “No,” he replied. “When revival comes, we’ll see two things we haven’t seen yet: A fresh sense of God’s holiness; and a heightened awareness of our own sin and carnality.”

  • COLUMN: Real love is from God

  • COLUMN: Come out of hiding and start living

    When God called to Adam, “Where are you,” he replied, ‘I hid. I was afraid.’ Genesis 3:10

    Is fear causing you to hide from somebody? A boss? A husband or wife? A touchy co-worker? A strong-willed child?

    When God called to Adam, “Where are you,” he replied “I hid. I was afraid.” And we’ve all been hiding ever since.
