On the last Sunday of the year, Student Minister, Micah Collins takes us to Romans in his sermon A Contemplative New Year.  Micah gives us three ways to close out an old year and bring in a new year by contemplating our failures and victories, by seeking our reconciliation in Christ, and by hoping in Christ for the future of the new year.  This teaching was presented on Sunday, December 26, 2015.  This podcast is a ministry of First Baptist Church of Bogalusa, La.  Thank you for listening!

On this Christmas Eve, we cast our gaze to the mother of Christ to learn from her very own Christmas awakening by examining the Magnificat in Luke 1.  From her great song of faith, we learn of the three types of people to whom Christmas can truly come.  Though a worldly Christmas is often measured in dollars and sense, Mary's song teaches the true Christmas will always come to humble.  Though a worldly Christmas is often about being sated with food and things, Mary's words reminds us the true Christmas will always come to the hungry.  Those who are hungry for God will always find Him.  Though a worldly Christmas may celebrate getting what you want, Mary's Magnificat shows us the true Christmas always comes to helpless.  This teaching was given on Friday, December 24, 2015.  This podcast is a ministry of First Baptist Church of Bogalusa, La.  Thank you for listening!

Elizabeth was the mother of John the Baptist, but she, too, had a Christmas awakening when she encountered her cousin Mary and the yet-to-be-born Jesus.  Through Elizabeth's experience, we learn that when Jesus comes, we are awakened to wonder, to true joy, and to belief.  This teaching was given on Sunday, December 6, 2015.  This podcast is a ministry of First Baptist Church of Bogalusa, La.  Thank you for listening!

The Christmas story is full of individual awakenings.  Pastor Greg Whaley takes us to a Christmas awakening each Sunday of Advent through his sermon series "Christmas Awakenings."  In this teaching, we turn to Joseph, who initially, was not keen on the idea of raising the child of another.  But His heart was awakened to new possibilities of God's power by the Truth being born in him through the angel's visitation.  His Christmas was then true and real, not a pretend Christmas of his own making.  This teaching was given on Sunday, November 29, 2015.  This podcast is a ministry of First Baptist Church of Bogalusa, La.  Thank you for listening!
