Ephesians 3:14-19 contains the prayer of Paul for every family.  In this Letter to the Family, Pastor Greg shares how important family is to the Father and how close the family is to the heart of Paul.  The prayer for every family is for each person to be strengthened in their inner man, for Christ to dwell in each heart, that each person may comprehend the greatness of God's love and know the surpassing love of Christ, and finally, for family members to be filled up to all the fullness of God.  It may be the most important prayer we can pray for our families.  This teaching was presented on Sunday, May 22, 2016.  This podcast is a ministry of First Baptist Church of Bogalusa, La.  Thank you for listening!

This installment of the Letters to the Family comes from the book of Titus and is specifically for Senior Adults.  Pastor Greg reminds us that seniors of all people are to be sober, serious, sensible, and sound in faith, love and perseverance.  As the spiritually mature, senior adults are examples to both the young women and the young men in the faith.  In a world that is afraid to grow older, believing senior adults serve as bulwark for the Christian community.  For all of those who think they are too old to have a part in the kingdom, or that they have done their service and are no longer needed, the scripture gently reminds - you are not done, yet!  This teaching was presented on Sunday, May 15, 2016.  This podcast is a ministry of First Baptist Church of Bogalusa, La.  Thank you for listening!

As confusing as it is to be a student in today's world, it is perhaps just as confusing to know what being a mom is like.  Continuing in our sermon series, Letters to the Family, Pastor Greg pens a letter to moms about what it means to be a kingdom mom.  The scriptures teach us that motherhood is a calling, not a culture; sacrifice, not selfishness; and persistence, not perfection.  Mothers are one of the most important anchors of any family and one of the best physical pictures we have of God's love in our lives.  This teaching was presented on Sunday, May 8, 2016.  This podcast is a ministry of First Baptist Church of Bogalsua, La.  Thank you for listening!

Students of our post-modern age face more confusion about who they are and what is important than ever before.  With this in mind, Pastor Greg shares a pastor's heart through the beginning of this sermon series entitled Letters to the Family.  The message is presented as a letter to the students and is based on four important questions for every student: Who defines you? When are you a success?  What is love?  What is truth?  The answers to these questions will mold and shape a young person for their entire life, so it is imperative that we consider God's answer to these questions.  This teaching was presented on Sunday, May 1, 2016.  This podcast is a ministry of First Baptist Church of Bogalusa, La.  Thank you for listening!

When Joab murders Abner under a banner of truce, King David once again gives us a picture of the nature of God as revealed in Jesus Christ.  Pastor Greg takes us to 2 Samuel 3 to explain three very important truths.  The  love of the True King actively mourns the devastation of sin.  The True King is always and only good.  The nature of the True King desires only life for His beloved.  This teaching was presented on Sunday, April 24, 2016.  This podcast is a ministry of First Baptist Church of Bogalusa, Louisiana.  Thank you for listening!

One of the most poignant moments in David's life was at a threshing floor.  David's statement, "I will not offer to God that which costs me nothing," reveals not only his own heart of worship and sacrifice, but it is also a picture of the great sacrifice in Christ on our behalf and a call to a full and costly worship in our lives.  This teaching was presented on Sunday, April 17, 2016.  This podcast is a ministry of First Baptist Church of Bogalusa, La.  Thank you for listening!

In I Samuel 26:5-11, there is the account of David's forbearance in taking the life of Saul.  It is not the only time.  In this sermon from the Pictures of the True King series, Pastor Greg examines David's actions to reveal the heart of mercy and forgiveness shown to us in Christ.  We may have it coming, like Saul did, but in Christ there is forgiveness and hope.  This teaching was presented on Sunday, April 10, 2016.  This podcast is a ministry of First Baptist Church of Bogalusa, La.  Thank you for listening!

Pastor Greg has already looked at I Samuel 16 during the Tragedy of King Saul series.  Today, he takes a look at Samuel's anointing of a new king with an eye, not toward the diminishing King Saul, but to the coming King David, himself a picture of Jesus.  In this anointing, we find a picture of an adoring God who loves us too much to leave us to our own devices.  With such an adoring love, how can we not respond to Him by giving ourselves completely to Him?  This teaching was presented in Sunday, April 3, 2016.  This podcast is a ministry of First Baptist Church of Bogalusa, La.  Thank you for listening!

On Easter Sunday, our sermon series shifts from King Saul to King David.  Where Saul was a picture of the man of the flesh, King David is a picture of the Messiah.  In this first teaching from the series, Salvation in a Sling, Pastor Greg compares David and his confrontation with Goliath to Jesus and His confrontation with death.  Like David, Jesus left His Father, refusing the weapons of the world, and utterly destroyed death and sin for all time in His battle on the cross.  This teaching was presented on Sunday, March 27, 2016.  This podcast is a ministry of First Baptist Church of Bogalusa, La.  Thank you for listening!

In this final teaching from the Tragedy of King Saul series, Pastor Whaley follows Saul to his prophesied end and the tragedy becomes complete.  Even in death, we learn the devastating wages of sin and how it impacts the kingdom of God and those with whom we share life.  But, it doesn't have to be this way.  This teaching was presented on Sunday, March 13, 2016.  This podcast is a ministry of First Baptist Church of Bogalusa, La.  Thank you for listening!
