God is a maker of covenants.  In this sermon, we turn to Hebrews 8 to hear how the new covenant relationship between God and man is based on Jesus Christ and not on any other person or thing.  This new covenant in Christ results in God's word being birthed into our hearts and minds, God's people being grafted into His family, God's spirit being the only teacher we need, and God's mercy and forgiveness being available freely and completely.  All of this because of Jesus is the greater covenant of God!  This teaching was presented on Sunday, July 31, 2016.  This podcast is a ministry of First Baptist Church of Bogalusa, Louisiana.  Thank you for listening!

We make lots of promises. Sometimes we keep them, sometimes not.  However, God in Christ is a promise keeper!  In the sermon from the Greater Than series, we turn our attention to Hebrews 6.  There we find God's promise is backed by His nature, and shown to us through Jesus Christ.  Because of this, God's promise is unshakeable and always trustworthy.  Those who take refuge in Christ have strong encouragement in hope and do not panic in a world full of worry.  Jesus, Himself, is God's best promise!  This teaching was presented on Sunday, July 24, 2016.  This podcast is a ministry of First Baptist Church of Bogalusa, Louisiana.  Thank you for listening!

The high priest was arguably the most important person in Jewish society.  In this sermon from the Greater Than series in Hebrews, Pastor Greg examines Hebrews 4 to explore how Jesus is the greater high priest.  Here we learn Jesus is the greater high priest because alone has the power to forgive so we can hold fast to our confession, He shares our humanity so we can draw near to the throne of grace with confidence, and through Him we receive mercy and grace in our hour of need.  This teaching was presented on Sunday, July 17, 2016.  This podcast is a ministry of First Baptist Church of Bogalusa, Louisiana.  Thank you for listening!

In this teaching from the Greater Than series, Pastor Whaley turns to Hebrews 4 to speak on the rest of Christ.  In a world where everyone is seeking to rest themselves in something, the writer of Hebrews reminds us a perfect rest remains for those who know the Christ.  In His rest, we walk in righteousness rather than weariness, we are sensitive to His leading rather than suspicious, and we can let go of our labor and take His light and easy yoke upon us.  This teaching was presented on Sunday, July 10, 2016.  This podcast is a ministry of First Baptist Church of Bogalusa, Lousiana.  Thank you for listening!
