Perhaps nowhere do we imitate God more or as well as we do when we are showing mercy.  Jesus tells us the merciful will recieve mercy.  So, the call on the life of a believer is to walk in Christ mercy with others.  It is this, Christ mercy through His Spirit, that allows us to give and receive mercy because it is the perfect mercy of God, not the false mercy of the prideful soul.  This teaching was presented on Sunday, March 12, 2017.  This podcast is a ministry of First Baptist Church of Bogalusa, Louisiana.  Thank you for listening!

Sacrifice and faith go hand in hand.  In this sermon from the Greater Than Series, we look to Hebrews 8 where we see that the former sacrifices of the Old Testament are not sufficient to make us perfect with God because they must be continually offered and always serve as a reminder of sin's power.  But Jesus is the greater sacrifice because His sacrifice is once for all, is effectual for perfection, and promotes love and good works in the heart of the redeemed.  This teaching was presented on Sunday, August 7, 2016.  This podcast is a ministry of First Baptist Church of Bogalusa, Louisiana.  Thank you for listening!

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!

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!

As we continue to make our way through the book of Hebrews, Pastor Greg takes us to Hebrews 3 in this teaching entitled, Jesus: Greater Than Moses.  As revered as Moses is in the Jewish faith, the writer of Hebrews speaks to Jesus as being greater than Moses in the Christian faith.  Because Jesus is greater, there is no condemnation from God, we have the eternal faithfulness of God in Christ, and we can trust Him with our most whole and sacred selves.  This teaching was presented on Sunday, June 26, 2016.  This podcast is a ministry of First Baptist Church of Bogalusa, Louisiana.  Thank you for listening!

True forgiveness is an elusive concept in the world of equations and experiments in which we are currently living.  In this sermon from the Questions for Kingdom Living sermon series, Pastor Whaley examines what true forgiveness looks like in the person of Jesus Christ.  In the doing we come to understand that one of the reasons our world is bereft of a true understanding of forgiveness is that Christians are not displaying this type of forgiveness in their own lives for all the world to see.  This teaching was presented on Sunday, September 27, 2015.  This podcast is a ministry of First Baptist Church of Bogalusa, La.  Thank you for listening!
