Rev. Hank Hamilton

Everyone has a love story. The best truelove story is the Bible. The Bible tells us how much God loves us, to what lengths He was willing to go to win our love and that His love is everlasting.

God knew us before we were even born (Jeremiah 1:4-10), as did our mothers. Our mothers know and love us much the same way. Because of the Coronavirus, some of us might not be able to be with our moms. But we can call, text, email, write an old-fashioned letter or even send flowers. This Mother’s Day (Sunday, May 10, 2020) let her know that you love her.

Because of the Coronavirus, some of us might not be able to be with our moms. But we can call, text, email, write an old-fashioned letter or even send flowers. This Mother’s Day (Sunday, May 10, 2020) let her know that you love her.

We do these things for our mothers out of love and respect. Did you know that there are several verses in the Bible that tell us to do exactly that – love our mothers? We are commanded to honor our mothers (and fathers) in Exodus 20:12 “Honor your father and your mother, that your days may be long in the land that the Lord your God is giving you”. Deuteronomy 5:16, Proverbs 23:22-25, Matthew 15:4 - 19:19 and Ephesians 6:2 echo that command.

With all of the recent worldly events bringing sickness, despair and hope; let us not procrastinate in showing love to others… beginning with our mothers. We wish you a loving peaceful Mother’s Day.

First Baptist Church — Marion

All are welcome to join us via Facebook at 10:30 a.m. CDT until the Coronavirus is gone.

Many have told Bro. Bubba how much they would like to be able to come to church for Mother’s Day – BUT, that can’t happen. However, he said to CHECK FACEBOOK ON FRI- DAY to see if there might be a change!

Shoebox Ministry continues and this month the items are for boys – socks, Legos, toys, etc. There were many thank you notes being sent to the church. I know we are a GIVING and LOV- ING CHURCH. We can DO that because we have faithful members who continue to support with their tithes. Just a reminder, this is the address: FIRST BAPTIST CHURCH, MARION, P.O. BOX 350, MARION, LA 71260. One of our faithful members always sends out cards and a Bulletin to those who have missed church. This week there will be a Bulletin so they can keep that ministry going.

Ezekiel 16 is the scripture lesson today. Bro. Bubba asked ‘Who is God?’ In this book, it likens us as being a baby that was not wanted, born in a field and cast out to die without even cutting the Umbilical cord. God saved your life in the situation you were in. He cleaned you up and made you a great nation. But then, we began loving ourselves more than Him, taking the gifts He gave us and using them for ungodly things, and worshiping the God of ME. So, God certainly has the RIGHT to judge us, AMERICA. God BLESSED THIS NATION. All of our papers refer to God. Even though we were born in sin with a rebellious attitude, God loved us. He loved us so much He gave his sinless, ONLY SON to die for US. This pandemic may be our wakeup call. Don’t wait until it is too late! Jesus will be there to intercede for you IF you will just ask Him! CHOOSE TO LIVE!!

Haile Church of Christ

Webster defines “legalism” as a strict, literal or excessive conforming to the law or to a religious or moral code. The definitions of “liberalism” include the freedom of restraint and licentiousness. Legalist may charge those with views of the Scripture less rigid than their own as liberalists.

On the other hand, those with a more lenient view of Scripture may accuse those with stricter views as being legalists. Is there a “weigh station” or “happy medium” between legalism and liberalism? There is, and it is grace! Grace instructs through the written word (Titus 2:11-12), and a theme throughout the New Testament is to abide within the doctrine of Christ, pay close attention to doctrine and expose strange or false doctrines (2 John 9-11; 1 Timothy 4:16; Hebrews 13:9, etc.).

Grace is not licentiousness (Jude 4), and prohibits taking liberty with God’s word. A precise pattern for obeying the gospel, worship and every aspect of Christ’s teaching is revealed (Romans 6:17-18; John 4:24; Philippians 3:17). Striving to follow Christ’s teachings as closely as possible isn’t legalism, unless one depends on their own ability to life perfectly. Since all sin and fall short (Romans 3:23), earning one’s salvation through merit is impossible.

If one obeys all of Christ’s commands, they remain “an unworthy servant” (Luke 17:10). Why? Because of sin!! Grace provides a remedy; but only for those who “walk in the light” and do not practice sin (1 John 1:5-9; 3:9). “Walking in the light” doesn’t allow legalism or liberalism. Grace teaches that faith that comes from God’s word is essential (Hebrews 11:6) and an acceptable faith is an obedient faith (James 2:14-26) with total reliance on Christ’s blood for pardon.

Rocky Branch Baptist Church

Praise God in His sanctuary – Well as close as we could get for now. Sunday we had a “drive-in” church service. Definitely something different for us at R.B.B.C. Song service was a little different as well. Beginning with the song “This is the day . . .” to the tune of horns honking. (You would have had to be there to fully appreciate the excitement we all felt.) Something about being together again with your church family!

Bro. Terry began by welcoming our church family together again and reminding us that we are looking forward to the time we will be together in the house of the Lord! “Because He Lives” we can deal with whatever is before us. And in true worship we sang together “Oh, What a Savior”.

The message began with Jesus instructing his disciples to get a colt for his triumphant entry into Jerusalem, thus recognizing Him as King. Not the earthly king they were looking for, but the true King.

In Luke 22, Jesus partakes of the Last Supper with His disciples, goes to the Garden to pray, and is ‘sold out’ by one of His disciples. Jesus is beaten beyond recognition, and hung on the cross to die for our sins. And Jesus in all of His love, takes time to bring ‘one’ to Himself. After His death, burial and resurrection, He arose and was seen by the women and His disciples. Later on the road to Emmaus, Jesus joined two men, who later recognized Him as the Messiah.

Jesus Christ is with us today. Through the virus and all the trials we have encountered, He is walking with us each step of the way. HE IS ALIVE! Hallelujah! Let everything that has breath praise the Lord.

In these trying times, we can draw strength from the Holy Bible.
