How are believers to pray in these uncertain days?  Continuing our journey to Easter Sunday, Pastor Whaley takes us to another psalm of assent.  Psalm 122 is one of the psalms used by the ancient Israelites as they made their way to the temple for worship.  It is a prayer of peace and it is a prayer that God always honors and a prayer that is always right to pray, no matter the circumstance.  This sermon was preached on Sunday, March 1.  This podcast is a ministry of First Baptist Church of Bogalusa, La.  Thank you for listening.

First Baptist Church is making its journey to Easter Sunday.  Pastor Greg is using the Psalms of Assent as focus texts for our worship time.  In this sermon, we examine Psalm 121 which reveals an insomniac God who never fails us and is always on the job.  Our insomnia is a bad thing for us, but God's insomnia is a very good thing.  This sermon was preached on Sunday, February 22, 2015.  This podcast is a ministry of First Baptist Church of Bogalusa, La.  Thank you for listening.

After verbally sparring with the religious leaders at the temple, Jesus brings His teaching to a close with a beautiful lament for Jerusalem.  Found in Matthew 23, these words serve as the focus text for the next sermon in our Every Day with Matthew sermon series.  In this sermon, Pastor Whaley examines the lament of Christ as a picture of the greatness of God's love.  This sermon was preached on Sunday, February 8, 2015.  This podcast is a ministry of First Baptist Church of Bogalusa, Louisiana.  Thank you for listening.

In Matthew 16, Jesus uses a well-known metaphor to help his disciples understand the power of sin, even though it may not be as familiar to us today.  The metaphor is leaven.  In this sermon, Pastor Whaley examines how leaven works to understand its usage as a metaphor for the spiritual life.  Leaven can corrupt the good, or it can infiltrate the evil, but either way, it's potency is thorough.  This sermon was preached on Sunday, January 25, 2015.  This podcast is a ministry of First Baptist Church of Bogalusa, La.  Thank you for listening!

There are many differing understandings of the unpardonable sin which Jesus warns about in Matthew 12.  In this sermon from the Every Day with Matthew series, Pastor Whaley examines Jesus' words in light of what we know about the nature of God through His word and as revealed to us in the person of Jesus Christ.  What we find is that our understanding of the unpardonable sin reveals more about what we think about the nature of God than it does about the sin itself.  This message was preached on Sunday, January 18, 2015.  This podcast is a ministry of First Baptist Church of Bogalusa, La.  Thank you for listening.

In this second sermon from the Every Day with Matthew series, Pastor Whaley examines the faith of the centurion who trusts in Jesus' authority alone to heal his servant.  Using Matthew 8:5-13 as a focus text, we learn the kingdom authority of Jesus is different from the authority of the religious leaders, it is recognizable to those with eyes to see and it is powerful for the those who believe.  This sermon was preached on Sunday, January 11, 2015.  This podcast is a ministry of First Baptist Church of Bogalusa, La.  Thank you for listening.

A new year brings a new sermon series.  In this podcast, Pastor Whaley begins a sermon series meant to go along with the church's New Testament Reading Plan for 2015 entitled Every Day with Matthew.  As we begin a new year, there is a lot of talk about "the good life," but in Matthew 5, Jesus speaks of something much greater - the blessed life.  This sermon was preached on Sunday, January 4, 2015.  This podcast is a ministry of First Baptist Church of Bogalusa, LA.  Thank you for listening!

The Christmas story is full of those who were not afraid to come near to Christmas.  In this sermon from the Christmas is Five Words series, Pastor Whaley looks at three people in the Christmas story to whom Christmas came near.  Through Joseph's nearness to Christmas, we learn that grace is always the law.  From Elizabeth's nearness to Christmas, we learn the Christian life is marked by joy almost as much as it is marked by grace.  From Mary's nearness to Christmas, we learn all things are possible in Christ.  This sermon was preached on Sunday, December 14, 2015.  This podcast is a ministry of First Baptist Church of Bogalusa, La.  Thank you for listening!
