  • COLUMN: God provides power for living

    Power for living - doesn't that sound like something we want and need? We certainly are interested in the power to overcome the obstacles and difficulties that come to us in our daily lives.

    We have some really good resources available to us as Christians, but often we do not realize it. As a result, we don't put them to work in our lives.

    The Apostle Paul in Ephesians 3:14-21 gives three ways to receive power for daily living.

  • COLUMN: Be a lamb, not a pig

     The born-again man or woman is not motivated by this world-system.

    Think of being on the farm. It is a very hot summer day. Nearby in the barn lot there is a big mud wallow. 

    Here comes a pig. He grunts with contentment as he wades into the slime. You say, "Mr. Hog, why do you want to wallow and submerge in that filth? Why do you not seek a cleaner environment?" 

    That pig has not the slightest interest in your ideas for his betterment. He loves the mud.

  • COLUMN: We are alive because of Christ

     “I’m alive!” 

    We can shout those words to the top of our lungs. We are alive because of Jesus Christ. He is the one who gives life, abundant and free.

    The Apostle Paul says, “But because of His great love for us, God, who is rich in mercy, made us alive with Christ, even when we were dead in transgressions and sins…” (Ephesians 2:4).

  • Wilkinsons celebrate anniversary with church

     Sunday morning, Rev. Jerry Wilkinson had two reasons to celebrate.

    He has been pastor at First Baptist for 12 years and was waiting for the arrival of his granddaughter.

    While the first lady was with their daughter, Rev. Wilkinson enjoyed the anniversary that was prepared for him.

    Mary Jackson was the mistress of ceremony. The music was provided by the First Baptist Senior Choir. The presentation of flowers were done by Ola and Lanie Cobb. John Smith read the announcements and extended words of welcome to our guest speaker and wife.

  • COLUMN: 'I want to live!'

     A man was asked, “When you are in your casket, family and friends are mourning over you, what would you like for them to say about you?” His reply: “Look, he’s moving.”

    This man wanted to live and that is the desire of almost everyone. Why? There are a variety of reasons but I believe God placed the desire to live within every one of us. Without that desire, we would try to end it all when situations become extremely tough.
