Continuing through the book of Matthew, Pastor Greg comes to the first moments of Jesus' adult ministry.  After His baptism, Jesus is led into the wilderness to be tempted in Matthew 4.  In this sermon entitled Temptations to Failure, Pastor Greg examines the temptations of Christ and shows us how these temptations exist for all of those who would follow Jesus.  By understanding Jesus' response to temptation, we can learn to resist the devil and live victoriously in the kingdom of God.  This teaching was presented on Sunday, January 8, 2017.  This podcast is a ministry of First Baptist Church of Bogalusa, Louisiana.  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!
