Why are you waiting?

Today's article is directed toward people who are not Christian. God is calling through the good news of Jesus of Nazareth to accept the gift of salvation. Therefore, I am inviting you to come to a Christian church to accept Jesus as your lord and savior. I really do pray that you will go to any of the more than 200 Christian churches in Liberty County. I know you would be welcome at any of them.

We can learn from others' mistakes

Paul wrote, "For whatsoever things were written aforetime were written for our learning, that we through patience and comfort of the scriptures might have hope" (Rom. 15:4).

Choose to do things God's way

Choose, on this day, who you will serve. Choose to become who God is through Jesus Christ. Many are called but few are chosen. God has lain before man life, death, blessings and curses.
