People from across the country and the world, including many Liberty County residents, visit Atlanta to enjoy its cultural events, restaurants, malls, entertainment centers, historic sites and other activities.
This weekend, most of us are off from work and are enjoying life and the weekend.
The Apostle Paul wrote, "Grace be to you and peace from God our Father, and from the Lord Jesus Christ. Blessed be God, even the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of mercies, and the God of all comfort; Who comforteth us in all our tribulation, that we may be able to comfort them which are in any trouble, by the comfort wherewith we ourselves are comforted of God" (2 Cor. 1:2 – 4). In a world where trouble waits around every corner it is good to know that Christians do not have to face trouble alone, we ...
Writing a column like this can be a challenge. After all, I also preach and teach two or three times every week. I don't want to use the same material over and over. I want to say something fresh and relevant. Still, the Christian message really hasn't changed in the last 2000 years. It is still about what Jesus did for us when He gave His life so that we might live.
Recently in a youth meeting we were discussing prayer requests when one of the teens started talking about a new student at his school. The student got into a discussion about religion and let him and his friends, who are professed Christians, know that they didn't want anything to do with God and would rather serve Satan.
On behalf of the United Ministerial Alliance of Liberty County, I congratulate everyone who is graduating this season. We know it's not easy to complete such a great task, but through it all you did it.
Members of Baconton Missionary Baptist Church of Walthourville are celebrating 141 years of service. For most of its existence, the church was in Allenhurst. However, the city of Walthourville recently incorporated the land the church sits on.
First, on behalf of the United Ministerial Alliance of Liberty County, we want to thank you for your support as we celebrated another National Day of Prayer. We appreciate your prayers for our leaders, children, homeless, community, families and one another.
The ladies of the Living Word Church of God just spent an exciting weekend at their first Bible conference.
I just received news that my favorite uncle is close to passing away. He had cancer a few years ago that went into remission but recently it returned. The good news is that he has trusted Christ for forgiveness and has assurance of where he will end up after death.
One of the funniest lines I've ever read was in a newspaper in Las Vegas, Nevada, the day after the Southern Baptist Convention met there in the late 1980's. I know, who would have thought that Southern Baptists, of all people, would meet in Las Vegas. But we did, and evidently made an impression on a number of people. The writer simply stated, "Ten thousand Southern Baptists descended on Las Vegas earlier this week with a twenty dollar bill in one hand, and a copy of the Ten Commandments in the other. They didn't break either one ...
I remember being in church a number of years ago when my pastor was making closing announcements. The week had been designated "Home and Family Week," and family had been the sermon topic for the day.
Some today are making life's journey without Jesus. They have never realized how much He is needed in each and every person's life. Others believe that if one member of their family is religious then that is enough for the whole family. This simply is not true, for each person is accountable for themselves.
The old hymn opens with the verse "A charge to keep I have, a God to glorify, who gave His son my soul to save, and fit it for the sky."
"The aged women likewise, that they be in behavior as becometh holiness, not false accusers, not given to much wine, teachers of good things; That they may teach the young women to be sober, to love their husbands, to love their children, To be discreet, chaste, keepers at home, good, obedient to their own husbands, that the word of God be not blasphemed."
Over 2,000 years ago, there was this one called Jesus Christ who came on the scene in history. He preached, taught and healed the sick. Crowds gathered just to see if he was going to perform another miracle.
Dad used to tell me, "What doesn't kill you makes you stronger." Coach would say, "No pain, no gain." And one teacher would remark, "We learn best through adversity."
The Bible plainly states that all men have sinned (Romans 3:23). Sin, though not inherited, has been a plague of each generation of mankind. Each individual sins and is responsible for their sins.
Sometimes life throws us curve balls - situations, circumstances and problems that we just don't know how to handle.
This week has been beautiful, and I think spring is finally here to stay. We have been fooled before with a cold front sneaking its way back in. Well, speaking of being fooled, Tuesday was April Fool's Day where many a folk were hoaxed or tricked. Most of this was all done in fun and brought much-needed laughter.
Well, did you survive April Fool's Day? Or are you one of those who pulls the pranks on others?
Often, the love of Jesus is not seen in the lives of his creation.
There is no doubt that we are living in some difficult times. Many are struggling to make ends meet. Many are wondering if there is a light at the end of the tunnel.
Sunday was an exciting time, and those at St. Luke Missionary Baptist Church are celebrating a great accomplishment in the life of their church.
The older I get, the more I pay attention to my surroundings. I notice the beauty of flowers, trees, stars and even little details.
Spring has come. It's obvious on the calendar. We already have moved the clocks forward for daylight saving time. And where we live, trees and flowers are blooming all over.
Last week, we looked at Isaiah 1:18 and saw that God was willing to give his people an opportunity to come to their senses and turn back to him. Those people failed to heed God's warnings. Surely, man can learn from their mistakes (Romans 15:4).
"Jesus said, 'Take ye away the stone.' Martha, the sister of him that was dead, saith unto him, 'Lord, by this time he stinketh, for he hath been dead four days.' Then they took away the stone from the place where the dead was laid. And Jesus lifted up his eyes, and said, 'Father, I thank thee that thou hast heard me.' And when he thus had spoken, he cried with a loud voice, 'Lazarus, come forth.' And he that was dead came forth, bound hand and foot with graveclothes, and his face was bound about with a napkin. Jesus ...
