The Bible begins with God creating and loving His creations. The Bible is also full of God’s patience with mankind throughout the ages... and there are many verses about having a healthy dose of fear (respect) for God. Today, as in olden times, there are many who do not fear (respect) God - many do not obey His commands.

Psalm 111:10 “The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom; A good understanding have all those who do His commandments; His praise endures forever.” Psalm 112:1 “Praise the Lord! How blessed is the man who fears the Lord, Who greatly delights in His commandments.”

Ever notice how we don’t usually take great joy in obeying rules? We just do - obey. God wants us to “delight” in obeying His rules because He knows that He will richly reward us. He wants us to fully understand that - to obey and look forward to the blessings that come our way and fear the consequences if we don’t. Proverbs 19:23 “The fear of the Lord leads to life, So that one may sleep satisfied, untouched by evil.”

Malachi 4:2 “But for you who fear My name, the sun of righteousness will rise with healing in its wings; and you will go forth and skip about like calves from the stall.” We can know joy and freedom from worry that a frol icking calf feels; if we but follow God’s laws. Now doesn’t that sound “delightful?!?”

First Baptist Farmerville

First Baptist Church Farmerville welcomes you! We offer two worship services every Sunday morning at 400 North Main. The 9 AM service is suitable for senior adults and higher-risk attendees, and masks are required throughout this service. At the 11 AM service, a mask is required upon entering and exiting the building and while moving around the sanctuary.

Bro Kurt’s sermon, “Opportunities to Influence”, is based on Acts 3:9-10; 4:13. We continue to study the characteristics and impact of the early Church. Because of their focus on scripture and studying God’s Word, their interest in and commitment to one another, and their lifestyle of prayer, God blesses them, and they grow in number daily. Their lives are full of joy.

In today’s Bible passage, Peter and John are going to the Temple, as they do every day, to worship and to teach. They encounter a lame man sitting at the gate, and in the name of Jesus, tell him to get up and walk. They take the opportunity presented to heal a lame man. But what was even more important is that they saw a soul healed. It took an act of faith for this man to stand up after a lifetime of being lame. All the people saw and were filled with wonder.

Think for a moment of someone’s life who you may know that was really bad, but God intervened. When a life is transformed, people see the power of God at work – addictions broken, families mended, hurts forgiven.

God still works, and people still notice, just like in the early Church. People notice your life, whether or not it is a living testimony to the grace and power of God. You ARE an influence, either negative or positive. We should live our daily lives to indicate our belief that Jesus is coming back soon.

Remember that we may come to church, but if we have never trusted Jesus as our Savior, we are not a part of the Church. Today you can be. It’s as simple as ABC.

ADMIT you are a sinner..

BELIEVE Jesus gave His life to pay for your sin.

CONFESS Him as your Lord today.

Come worship and love and learn with us! Kurt Auger, Pastor; Frank Nihart, Music Pastor. Visit us at www. fbcfarmerville.com for up-to-date information, or our FBC Farmerville Facebook page, where Bro. Kurt broadcasts “live” every day at noon.

First Baptist Church — Marion

In the 60’s a magazine cover said “God Is Dead.” As the world spins in chaos some may wonder if that is true. At FBC Marion there is manifold evidence that God is alive,

Jesus lives and the Holy Spirit continues to work. Ask Michael Thomas, Dustin Andrews, Shep Towns or Sawyer Towns if Jesus still saves. Three great weeks of baptizing and watching God work in the midst of all Satan is trying to do shouts “God Is Not Dead.” Bro. Bubba preached today from II Samuel 10. David and his people were vastly outnumbered for battle. Surely they must have felt as Christians today do looking at what seemed to be a hopeless situation. They didn’t know whether they would be temporarily defeated or whether God would amazingly deliver them. Listen to what they said in II Samuel 10:12, “Be of good courage, and let us play the men for our people, and for the cities of our God; and the Lord do that which seemeth Him good.” Our purpose as Christians is to be courageous and live like warriors in the Army of God and leave the results to Him. Take heart fellow Christians, “He’s got the whole world in His hands.”

PRAY FOR EACH OTHER, OUR CHURCH, OUR NATION, AND OUR LEADERS.

Haile Church of Christ

Reasoning from Scripture, what is a Christian’s duty in regard to the Lord’s Supper or communion? Jesus instituted the Lord’s Supper at the Passover feast on the night of His betrayal. It was on “the first day of unleavened bread” (Matthew 26:17). Leavened bread was prohibited during the days of the Passover (Exodus 12:15). Therefore, it is conclusive that unleavened bread was used. Jesus also took the “cup” or fruit of the vine and explained its meaning (Matthew 26:27-29). It is reasonable to believe that “unleavened bread and the fruit of the vine” are the two authorized elements for the Lord’s Supper. On Paul’s travels he came to Troas and remained seven days. On the first day of the week, the church came “together to break bread”.

This was the Lord’s Day assembly as Christians “broke the bread” (Acts 20:7-11). Paul rebuked the church at Corinth for coming together for reasons other than “to eat the Lord’s Supper” (1 Corinthians 11:20). In the same letter, he instructed the Corinthian Christians to contribute upon the first day of every week (1 Corinthians 16:2), which is A strong inference that the church meets upon the first day of every week. Israel was commanded to keep the Sabbath (Exodus 20:8), and it was understood this meant every Sabbath. Partaking of the Lord’s Supper consists of more than merely eating the bread and drinking the cup. A reverent, specific mindset is necessary lest one “brings judgment to themselves” (1 Corinthians 11:19-34).

Sunday Evening 6pm

Wed. Bible Study. 6pm

Wed. Bible Study, Nov. 11th, Bro. Paul started First Peter Chapter 1:1- 10. (8) Whom having not seen, ye love; in whom, though now ye see him , not, yet believing, ye rejoice with joy unspeakable and full of glory: (9) Receiving the end of your faith, even the salvation of your souls.

Sunday School, Nov. 15th, Bro. Paul’s lesson was from John Chapter 10:1-30. (9) I am the door: by me if any man enter in, he shall be saved, and shall go in and out, and find pasture. (30) I and my Father are one.

Worship Service, Nov. 15th, both Bro. Robert and Bro. Paul each sang a beautiful song for us before Bro. Dan’s message. Bro. Dan’s message was from Isaiah 10:6-10. (6) I will send him against an hypocritical nation, and against the people of my wrath will I give him charge, to take the spoil, and to take the prey, and to tread them down like the mire of the streets.

( The Refusal to Seek the Lord)

Bro. Dan gave us such a wonderful and blessed message as always. I’m afraid that I got caught up in listening so intently that I forgot to take any special notes. To all of you who missed the services this morning, I deeply apologize. You really missed an inspirational message.

LMBC also received the great blessings from the serving of The Lord’s Supper. I pray that everyone left from church this morning feeling as good as I did!

Sunday Evening, Nov. 15th, First Corinthians Chapter 12:27-31. (28) And God hath set some in the church, first apostles, secondarily prophets, thirdly teachers, after that miracles, then gifts of healings, helps, governments, diversities of tongues.

This was the beginning of the foundation of Church. The greatest gift is helping our brothers and sisters.

There was a good turnout for Ladies night on Thursday, Nov. 12, at Hollis Seafood in Spearsville. Wonderful food and even better fellowship!

LMBC had a great turnout for our yard sale on Saturday the 14th. A big thanks to everyone who participated and a special thanks to Sis. Vickie for all her work!

Sunday, Nov. 22nd, we will have our Thanksgiving dinner following Worship services. We hope to see everyone there ( the more the better because that means plenty of great food) for not only a good dinner but also great fellowship. Everyone is welcome!

LMBC still has plenty of cookbooks. They make great Christmas gifts. The cost has been reduced to $10 with 300 recipes (a great price for some wonderful recipes). You can contact me, Donna Holman, at (318) 548-2699, and I will be glad to get them to you.

Liberty Missionary Baptist Church – Spearsville

Liberty Church Road, Spearsville Bro. Bill Styron, Pastor

We were reminded from Acts 17 that the true God reigns over all creations and that our responsibility is to witness about Him even in cultures opposed to this truth.

Specials were: Ricky, Jessie, Brandon sang “Old Rugged Cross”; Gus “World’s Greatest Story”; Bill “Going Back”.

Bro. Bill delivered the message from Luke 15 “What man of you, having an hundred sheep, if he lose one of them, doth not leave the ninety and nine in the wilderness, and go after that which is lost, until he finds it?” (“¿Qué hombre de ustedes, teniendo cien ovejas, si pierde una de ellas, no deja los noventa y nueve en el desierto, y va tras lo que está perdido, hasta que lo encuentre") This can apply to a world that has turned from God.

It’s a painful discovery when someone drifts away. When we are close to God, we will be closer to each other. In the passage, He left the 99 to go find one lost sheep. God is concerned with all mankind. We were All lost at one time. Although some know there is a better way, they are comfortable the way they are. The Shepherd wasn’t comfortable with one missing sheep. He went and found it and carried it back on His shoulders. Everyone is going to stand before a judgment. God never sends anyone to hell; He allows them to make the decision of where they want to go. We will not have SS or evening study next week. After worship time we will have our Thanksgiving fellowship. We invite you to come grow in God’s Word and fellowship with us. (Te invitamos a que vengas a crecer en la Palabra de Dios con nosotros.)

My Father’s House

My Father’s House Teach one to be one. Jesus was with the disciples for three years. He was with them 40 days before going to heaven. If you have read Acts 1 and 2 you would know this. The promise of God was given to Jesus and the promise was fulfilled. The Holy Spirit came upon the disciples and the preaching began. Jesus had made it clear that there would be false teachers. Jesus said also, the way is narrow that leads to life and few find it. T12B1 will make disciples of Jesus, disciples of Jesus get to know God. In Matthew 5 Jesus opened his mouth telling them about the kingdom of heaven. The faithful disciples will inherit the earth. Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness. In Matthew 6, Jesus gave instructions on how to get something from God our father. The disciples learned from the teacher for God to forgive, one must forgive according to Jesus. Jesus taught the disciples about the eye. He told them about log and specks. He mentioned hypocrites. In verses 6 and 7 Jesus explains the law and the prophets. Jesus told them about trees and how to recognize them. Have you read his words beware of false prophets, they will come to you in sheep clothing. Don’t forget this. Join Joseph at My Father’s House at 4774 Highway 151 Downsville, La 71234. For more information call or text 318-620-9293.

“I shall forever lift my eyes to Calvary, to view the cross where Jesus died for me. And how marvelous the grace that caught my falling soul. He looked beyond my faults and saw all my needs.”

Are we comfortable out of God’s Will? In James 4:7-9 we are shown how we can get back in the Will of God. First, Submission to God by voluntary willingness to repent after He convicts us of sin. Second, Resistance to the devil, when he tempts us. In Ephesians 6 we are told how we can stand against evil by putting on the whole armor of God. Third, Return to God by drawing near to Him. Fourth, Cleanse by replacing your desire to sin with your desire to experience God’s purity with the Word of God and being Christ-like. Fifth, Purify with an inward cleansing against things such as hatred, which keeps us from being right with God. King David set an example in Psalm 51 -- Create in me a clean heart, O God, and renew a steadfast spirit within me. Sixth, Feel it by having a deep longing to return to God. And everyone who has this hope in Him purifies himself, just as He is pure – 1 John 3:3. Seventh, Response with mourning and grief for being away from God. Eighth, Then Reverse our direction. Instead of following the crowd, we should follow God.

“I never deserved the mercy or merited so much grace and this unworthy man (woman) can’t understand, why that Man of no wrong, took my rightful place.” If Jesus died for us, should we not live for Him?
