Meekness is yet another beatitude which is likely thought to be antithetical to the cultural way of success.  Yet, Jesus upholds this strength-under-restraint as a virtue worthy of the earth and land in which we dwell.  In this teaching, Pastor Greg examines Jesus' words to help us understand what meekness really is and to understand the parallel of this beatitude, inheriting the earth.  This teaching was presented on Sunday, February 19, 2017.  This podacst is a ministry of First Baptist Church of Bogalusa, Louisiana.  Thank you for listening!

We often console ourselves with lesser and insignificant things.  We eat "comfort" food when we are stressed.  We disengage by binge-watching t.v.  In this teaching from the beatitudes, Pastor Greg explores the deep sorrow of death, the world, and our sin nature.  The consolation of all these sorrows is salvation, hope, and living presence of Jesus Christ, Himself.  We can find true consolation not in the things of this broken world, but only in the kingdom of God at hand in Jesus.  This teaching was presented on Sunday, February 12, 2017.  This podcast is a ministry of First Baptist Church of Bogalusa, Louisiana.  Thank you for listening!

Pastor Greg moves us to what is perhaps the seminal teaching moment of Jesus' earthly ministry, the Sermon on the Mount.  In the next few weeks, we will anchor ourselves in the beatitudes which begin this teaching by Jesus.  In this sermon, Blessed Disciple 1, Pastor Greg explains the deeper meaning of the word blessed, and looks at the first beatitude - Blessed are the poor in spirit, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.  This teaching was presented on Sunday, February 5, 2017.  This podcast is a ministry of First Baptist Church of Bogalusa, Louisiana.  Thank you for listening.
