The tragedy of King Saul is compounded when we look at the first mention of Saul's son Jonathan.  The Lord delivered unto Jonathan a great victory in battle but Saul ruined it by making a rash oath placing the Israelites under an unbearable burden.  We learn unbearable burdens are the burdens we place on ourselves and they often come with unintended consequences.  The only burden we are called to bear is the burden of grace through Christ.  This teaching was presented on Sunday, January 24, 2016.  This podcast is a ministry of First Baptist Church of Bogalusa, La.  Thank you for listening!

Continuing on our journey with King Saul, Pastor Greg takes us to Saul's unlawful sacrifice in I Samuel 13:11-14.  Through this experience we learn from Saul that God's law has value and worth in our lives.  It is not something to be swept aside or invalidated by our lethargy.  As such, the spiritual is always to be preferred to the practical.  God's work in us is always more important that our work for ourselves.  Finally, we are reminded God is always seeking people after his own heart.  This teaching was presented on Sunday, January 17, 2016.  This podcast is a ministry of First Baptist Church of Bogalusa, La.  Thank you for listening!

The people of God demanded a king in order to be like the other nations.  God gave them what they wanted in spite of their rejection of Him.  God gave them Saul, a man whose heart was not after God, but was after the flesh.  And when the time came for Saul to rise to the kingdom, the people found him hiding in the luggage.  In this new sermon series for 2016, we learn three important truths.  If you are intent on having your own way, God will allow you to have it.  True love woos the heart, rather than forcing it.  Second, we see from Saul that with God, it is always about the heart.  Saul chose to follow his flesh rather than the new heart God had given him.  Finally, we learn that we have a choice to rise to the kingdom of God, or we can hide from it like Saul did.  This teaching was given on Sunday, January 10, 2016.  This podcast is a ministry of First Baptist Church of Bogalusa, La.  Thank you for listening!
