Ephesians 3:14-19 contains the prayer of Paul for every family.  In this Letter to the Family, Pastor Greg shares how important family is to the Father and how close the family is to the heart of Paul.  The prayer for every family is for each person to be strengthened in their inner man, for Christ to dwell in each heart, that each person may comprehend the greatness of God's love and know the surpassing love of Christ, and finally, for family members to be filled up to all the fullness of God.  It may be the most important prayer we can pray for our families.  This teaching was presented on Sunday, May 22, 2016.  This podcast is a ministry of First Baptist Church of Bogalusa, La.  Thank you for listening!

This installment of the Letters to the Family comes from the book of Titus and is specifically for Senior Adults.  Pastor Greg reminds us that seniors of all people are to be sober, serious, sensible, and sound in faith, love and perseverance.  As the spiritually mature, senior adults are examples to both the young women and the young men in the faith.  In a world that is afraid to grow older, believing senior adults serve as bulwark for the Christian community.  For all of those who think they are too old to have a part in the kingdom, or that they have done their service and are no longer needed, the scripture gently reminds - you are not done, yet!  This teaching was presented on Sunday, May 15, 2016.  This podcast is a ministry of First Baptist Church of Bogalusa, La.  Thank you for listening!

As confusing as it is to be a student in today's world, it is perhaps just as confusing to know what being a mom is like.  Continuing in our sermon series, Letters to the Family, Pastor Greg pens a letter to moms about what it means to be a kingdom mom.  The scriptures teach us that motherhood is a calling, not a culture; sacrifice, not selfishness; and persistence, not perfection.  Mothers are one of the most important anchors of any family and one of the best physical pictures we have of God's love in our lives.  This teaching was presented on Sunday, May 8, 2016.  This podcast is a ministry of First Baptist Church of Bogalsua, 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!
