  • Biblical engagement is critical for the personal development of the believer. It is impossible for a follower of Christ to be faithfully walking in the Lord if the individual does not know the ways of the Lord. Unfortunately, a recent survey indicated that only 14% of adults in our country read the Bible daily and that only another 14% read it several times a week. As followers of Christ, we are called to know the Word, live the Word, share the Word, and teach the Word. In Matthew 28:19-20 Jesus declares:

  • Jesus made a most interesting statement in Luke 12:15 (NLT) when He said, “Real life is not measured by how much we own.” He made this assessment after being asked to help settle a family dispute on dividing a family estate. In response, Jesus gave a parable about a rich farmer. He dealt with greed and covetousness, and concluded by calling the farmer a “fool.” Why?

  • Thought for the week: Courage doesn’t always roar. Sometimes courage is the quiet voice at the end of the day saying, I will try again tomorrow.

    I had to write my column on my phone email, which is very time consuming to say the least.

    Hopefully, spring is right around the corner. Don’t forget Daylight Savings Time begins on March 13. Oh yeah, I can’t wait.

  • Sunday was Communion Sunday at Lane Lincoln and First Baptist.

    Last Sunday, Ms. Lovester Wilkinson and her daughter Carolyn Wilkinson of Stanford were the guests of our Black History Sunday at First Baptist. They are the mother and sister to our pastor Reverend Jerry Wilkinson. Ms. Lovester gave a presentation of the flag regarding the slave era and how they used them as a way to escape slavery to freedom.
