Perhaps there is no better juxtaposition between the rule of law and the reign of grace than the latter part of Hebrews 12.  It is there the Hebrew writer compares the kingdom of Mt. Sinai with the kingdom of Mt. Zion.  In this sermon from the Greater Than series, Pastor Whaley explores the difference between the two and sets forth truth that the greater kingdom of Christ speaks better than Sinai, cannot be shaken, and is expressed in thankful, adoring imitation of the author and perfecter, Jesus Christ!  This teaching was presented on Sunday, August 28, 2016.  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!

Pastor Greg begins a new sermon series for the summer.  The sermon series is entitled, "Greater Than.." and each sermon will be drawn from the book of Hebrews.  Over and over again, the book of Hebrews calls us to the supremacy and the sufficiency of Christ as Lord and Savior.  In this teaching, Pastor Greg examines the opening words of Hebrews to find that our God is an ever-speaking God who has spoken is most powerful word not through the law, but through the divine man, Jesus Christ.  It is through Jesus that we learn  what God is like and just how incredibly God loves His children.  This teaching was presented on Sunday, June 12, 2016.  This podcast is a ministry of First Baptist Church of Bogalusa, La.  Thank you for listening!

Pastor Greg has already looked at I Samuel 16 during the Tragedy of King Saul series.  Today, he takes a look at Samuel's anointing of a new king with an eye, not toward the diminishing King Saul, but to the coming King David, himself a picture of Jesus.  In this anointing, we find a picture of an adoring God who loves us too much to leave us to our own devices.  With such an adoring love, how can we not respond to Him by giving ourselves completely to Him?  This teaching was presented in Sunday, April 3, 2016.  This podcast is a ministry of First Baptist Church of Bogalusa, La.  Thank you for listening!

On Easter Sunday, our sermon series shifts from King Saul to King David.  Where Saul was a picture of the man of the flesh, King David is a picture of the Messiah.  In this first teaching from the series, Salvation in a Sling, Pastor Greg compares David and his confrontation with Goliath to Jesus and His confrontation with death.  Like David, Jesus left His Father, refusing the weapons of the world, and utterly destroyed death and sin for all time in His battle on the cross.  This teaching was presented on Sunday, March 27, 2016.  This podcast is a ministry of First Baptist Church of Bogalusa, La.  Thank you for listening!
