On Thanksgiving Sunday at First Baptist Church, Pastor Whaley speaks from Psalm 100 in a message entitled "Enter with the Password - Thank you!"  Using Eugene Peterson's The Message translation of this passage, Pastor Whaley shares how a heart of thanksgving can be the password for believers to experience kingdom life on a day-to-day basis.  A heart of thanksgiving is the password to true praise, true presence, and a true perception of God's nature and love.  This teaching was presented on Sunday, November 22, 2015.  This podcast is a ministry of First Baptist Church of Bogalusa, La.  Thank you for listening!

On Thanksgiving Sunday, Pastor Whaley takes us to I Timothy 4 where Paul encourages believers to truly give thanks by recognizing three important truths:  everything made by God is good because God is always and only good, nothing is to be rejected if it is received with gratitude, and God's word and prayer sanctify His blessings to us.  The teaching finishes with an exhortation to let our thanksgiving be an active verb rather than a passive one.  This sermon was preached on Sunday, November 23, 2014.  This podcast is a ministry of First Baptist Church of Bogalusa, Louisiana.

Pastor Whaley turns to I Thessalonians 5:18 on this Thanksgiving Sunday to explore the act of thanksgiving in the life of the believer.  Understanding that thanksgiving is a full-time responsibility and it is the will of the Father that we should give thanks, Pastor Whaley goes on to considering the barriers to being a people of thanks before closing with the truth that thanksgiving only comes when we are thankful not merely for God's blessings to us but for Who God is.
