Do you believe? Do you believe that quotes from regular folks can be spot-on and inspirational for us? Check out Leon Brown. Mr. Brown was an outfielder in Major League Baseball for thirteen years. In 1983, he became active in the Arizona Major League Alumni organization. His goal: to instruct youngsters in the fundamentals of baseball. Mr. Brown soon realized that kids who weren’t “superstars” were often left on the bench. He used coaching baseball to make a difference in the lives of these children. Mr. Brown has since become a minister... to make a difference in the lives of many. May some of his quotes inspire you to take action so that you may live your best life and maybe help others to do so, too. “Life does not always give you what you want but if you look closely you will see that it gives what you need for growth.” - Leon Brown --- We can strive to grow our faith by trusting that God’s ways are higher than ours, and that, whatever circumstance comes our way, “we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose” Romans 8:28“Life is a reflection of what you think. If your thoughts are positive, the world you see will be the same.” - Leon Brown“It all begins in your mind. What you give power to, has power over you, IF you allow it.” - Leon Brown --- Romans 12:2 Do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewal of your mind, that by testing you may discern what is the will of God, what is good and acceptable and perfect.

First Baptist Farmerville

Bro. Kurt Auger encourages us to remember where we were before we were saved; to see where God has led us since we were saved; and to know where we are headed because we are saved.

In Ephesians 2:1-10, the Apostle Paul reminds the church in Ephesus that they were once dead in their sins. They were helpless, with no hope in the future. Before Christ became their God, they lived for self, children of disobedience, incapable of anything truly good. They were living in the ways of the world, leading chaotic, undisciplined lives, following the prince of the world, Satan. This is who we all were as lost sinners, living only for self, following Satan, living a life of self-satisfaction and self-fulfillment.

There may be someone reading this today who does not know Jesus Christ as Savior and who has not experienced God’s grace. Everyone ever born was once like that, too.

But then God steps in! When we accept the gift of salvation through Jesus Christ, we are made alive again! He shows us His grace, breathing life into us, giving us purpose and power! Greater is He that is in us than he that is in the world!

God raises us to new heights. Verse 6 tells how we are even now seated with Him in heavenly places because time and place are no barriers to our eternal God. We are children of the King! God made us the recipients of His riches of Grace. We will be with Him throughout all eternity!

Verse 10 tells us why we were created – for good works. Our purpose is to show the goodness of God in our lives. Matthew 5:16 says “Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father which is in heaven.”

We are His workmanship, made for that purpose. It is what life’s all about, to glorify our Father in Heaven! We were created in Christ Jesus, redeemed by Him, empowered by Him Who lives in us. We are unified in Him as His body and His bride, and we are victorious in Him, the King of kings and Lord of lords.

During the transition to normalcy, we will continue to offer multiple opportunities to worship together. For more information, visit our website, www. fbcfarmerville.com or our Facebook page. Our address is 400 North Main, Farmerville; phone 318.368-3848.

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

Salvation is by grace and grace is sufficient to supply all the requirements for man to be reconciled to God through the gospel of grace (Ephesians 2:8; 2 Corinthians 12:9; Acts 20:24). However, grace may be the most misunderstood aspect of God’s plan to save man. Grace is not licentious (Jude 4) or inclusive of divergent gospels or doctrines. Grace does not transform the objective truth in Scripture to relative or subjective truth open to various interpretations.

Grace came through Jesus Christ (John 1:17), not only through His death and resurrection but also through His words spoken through the inspired New Testament writers. Grace teaches or instructs through these commandments or laws (Titus 2:11-12).

Grace and law are mutually exclusive as systems but there are laws or commandments under grace. Grace is adequate to provide for all it commands. This includes unity or like-mindedness that is a theme throughout the New Testament (Romans 15:5; 1 Corinthians 1:10; Philippians 2:2, etc.).

The modern concept that grace is inclusive of doctrinal diversity, divergent gospels and excuses habitual sin is a serious misrepresentation of grace.

A trust in God’s promises accompanied by an understanding of His will and obedience to the gospel produces a faith that accesses God’s grace (Romans 5:2). The confusion, disagreement and division prevalent among evangelicals suggest that grace isn’t capable of resulting in a common faith.

God isn’t the author of confusion (1 Corinthians 14:33), and the gospel of grace is adequate to provide “the unity of the faith” it commands (Ephesians 4:13).

Schedule of Services

Sunday School 10:00am

Worship Service 11:00am

Sunday Evening 6:00pm

Wed. Bible Study 6:00pm

Wednesday, Sep. 16th, Bro. Dan’s message was from First John Chapter 1. (7) But if we walk in the light, as he is in the light, we have fellowship one with another, and the blood of Jesus Christ his Son cleanseth us from all sin.

To walk in the light is to walk with God for He is the light. Sunday School, Sep. 20th, Bro. Paul taught us from John Chapter 4:30-54 and Chapter 5:1-18. Jesus heals a nobleman’s son from death. The nobleman pleaded with Jesus to heal his son. 4:53 So the father knew that it was at the same hour, in which Jesus said unto him, Thy son liveth: and himself believed, and his whole house. 5:8 Jesus saith unto him, Rise, take up thy bed, and walk. 5:17 But Jesus answered them, My Father worketh hitherto, and I work.

The Jews wanted to kill Jesus because he had healed on the sabbath day and then even more so because he had said that God was his Father which made him equal with God.

Worship Service, Sep. 20th, We were doubly blessed by songs from Bro. Robert and Sis. Candi. Bro. Dan’s message was from Philippians Chapter 1:19-24, 3:13-14 and 4:13. (1:21) For to me to live is Christ, and to die is gain.

We must live for something, or die for nothing. We have to live for Jesus. God has given us a purpose. God’s door is always open.

(3:14) I press toward the mark for the prize of the high calling of God in Christ Jesus. (4:13) I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me.

Sunday Evening, Sep. 20th, Bro. Dan’s message was from Matthew Chapter 6:27-34. (Teachings on Worry) (30) Wherefore, if God so clothe the grass of the field, which to day is, and to morrow is cast into the oven, shall he not much more clothe you, O ye of little faith?

Let go of worry; let God lead. Believe in the Lord, trust in Him. Have faith! Thursday, Sep. 17th was “Ladies Night “ for LMBC. We met at the Ol’Hickory at 6:00pm. We had a wonderful evening of fellowship and a great meal with very good service from the staff working there! We missed everyone who was unable to join us.

Sunday, Sep. 27th, LMBC will have a potluck fellowship following our evening services. Bring your favorite dish and plan to enjoy great fellowship with our wonderful church family.

If you haven’t gotten a cookbook yet we still have some available. The cost is $15 with over 300 recipes. To get your cookbook call Donna at (318) 548-2699.

Everyone is invited to join our services! LMBC has a wonderful church family and you will always be made welcome here!

Liberty Missionary Baptist Church – Spearsville

Pastor: Bro. Bill Styron

Bro. Bill sang “Amazing Grace, How Can It Be” and “Master of the Sea” before he delivered God’s message to us. Text was from Daniel 6:10-11. They made a law that when the trumpet blew everyone was to bow to the king. However, Daniel got on his knees before the Lord. We stand strongest when we kneel. We need to get right with the Lord. We need to choose a definite time to spend with the Lord in prayer. We need to read our Bible. If we would communicate with the Lord on a regular basis, our lives would not be frayed. We need to spend more time taking care of our spiritual lives than we do and do things God’s way. We need to ask Him what He wants us to do and do it in His timeframe. Sometimes we wait for God to get our attention. We need to select a place to communicate with God even if it means getting up a little earlier. We need to make a definite commitment to communicate with God. Keep a journal of our prayer request, how God answered our prayer, and give a testimony of what God is doing in our lives. God is not welfare. Communicating with God, is listening, as well as talking. He is sovereign, Savior, and Lord. We should be allowing Him to direct our lives. He does not ask anything from us that He has not already done. We need to be prayer warriors. When trials strike, we need to turn to God immediately – not after we have exhausted other aspects. When we submit to God, he gives us unlimited resources. We just need to be faithful, trust Him, and rest in His care, His time, His power. We will never feel more secure.

We invite you to attend services at Liberty Baptist Church.

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.

Pleasant Grove Baptist - Downsville

Rocky Branch Baptist Church

Associate Pastor: Stephen Murry

News: Brenda Pace Joshua 6 – God gives us a purpose through communication with Him. Joshua had lived a life, faithful to God. So when Moses died, God raised Joshua up to lead the Jewish people into the Promised Land. When they come to Jericho, they find it surrounded by a huge wall.

With God directing them, He told them they would take Jericho. God will cross our obstacles with us, strengthening, comforting and providing hope. Though he did not understand, Joshua followed God’s plan anyway. Through faith and obedience, we too in compliance should follow God, even when we do not understand. The first plan of action, is not always the last resort.

The priests and the men of war following Joshua, who was following God, for six days marched around the city. By living by faith and not by reason, impossibilities become possibilities, because of our confidence in God. On the seventh day: So the people shouted when the priests blew the trumpets. And it happened when the people heard the sound of the trumpet, and the people shouted with a great shout, that the wall fell down flat. Hebrews 11:30 – By faith the walls of Jericho fell down after they were encircled for seven days.

We should let God lead in our lives. When it comes to the impossible, we can’t, but HE can. We are the problem, when things aren’t done. We must learn to follow in obedient faith. “Lead me Lord, I’ll follow, anywhere You open up the door. Let Your Word speak to me, show me what I’ve never seen before”.
