What's new this year?

If you are reading this article today, God has blessed you to see another year. God has given you another opportunity to do something worthwhile. I am convinced that many have made their New Year's resolutions. I want you to know that I am not a big advocate of making resolutions. Many times, they only last a few months and sometimes, a few days. However, some have decided that this is the year that they will stop smoking, drinking, cheating, etc. This may be the year for some to stop one habit or another. However, we need to stop ...

We need social, economic and spiritual changes in our lives.

Certain measures in uncertain times

What will our actions be in these uncertain times? As all watch the stock market fluctuate wildly, the unemployment rise, and the homes in foreclosure exceed all expectations, does a shiver run up our spines? Liberty County seems to be insulated more than many surrounding communities but we are still vulnerable. Will we do nothing or will we invest in the future with faith?

Are we prepared to wait patiently

Patience and preparation are qualities in short supply in America today. We don't wait well! Why should we? We will do almost anything to avoid the wait in lines. Don't we have a right to have it our way and have it now? Immediate gratification is almost an American right.

Some assembly required

Preparation - it can be found throughout scripture. Noah had to prepare for the flood that destroyed Earth's population. Naomi prepared Ruth to impress Boaz and capture his attention. Joseph was placed in charge of the preparations that needed to occur during the seven years of plenty so that the seven years of famine would be survivable. After his conversion, Paul spent about 17 years in preparation for the outpouring of his ministry. Even Jesus went to the wilderness as part of His preparation process. He later went to the garden to prepare for His journey to Golgotha.

Learn the Bible to understand the Holy Spirit’s purpose

"But now I am going to him who sent me; yet none of you asks me, 'Where are you going?' But because I have said these things to you, sorrow has filled your hearts. Nevertheless I tell you the truth: it is to your advantage that I go away, for if I do not go away, the Counselor will not come to you; but if I go, I will send him to you.

Pastor's Corner: Take a little time to find out what prayers can do

"Confess your faults one to another, and pray one for another, that ye may be healed. The effectual fervent prayer of a righteous man availeth much. Elias was a man subject to like passions as we are, and he prayed earnestly that it might not rain, and it rained not on the earth by the space of three years and six months." - James 5:16-17
