Go God go

Stand still and know that He is God and see the salvation of Lord. Whatever battle of this life you are facing now, know it belongs to the Shepherd of our souls.

They will know us by our love

“A new commandment I give to you, that you love one another, even as I have loved you, that you also love one another. By this all men will know that you are My disciples, if you have love for one another.” John 13:34-35

Be generous

When we were planting a new church in Redfield, I would continually share the vision to our church and pray for God to supply the finances necessary to do so. One family stopped me early on and said, “God told us to give $10,000.” Then another did the same. Another lady showed up with a $10,000 check.

New Community youth pastor

The Rev. Patrick Lockett, pastor and apostle at New Community Baptist Church, has named the Rev. Tony Williams, the new youth pastor. He will work alongside his family, wife, Linda Williams, and children, Zhoriah Williams, Timothy Williams and Daijah Williams. (Special to The Commercial)

Jesus Is Alive!

The Resurrection of Jesus is the single most significant event in history. Everything Jesus did and said, even the whole of Scripture, hinges on the validity of Jesus’ Resurrection. Think about it: the crucifixion, ministry of Jesus, and the whole Bible would be meaningless without the Resurrection.

Outside The 4 Walls

“Endeavoring to keep the unity of the Spirit in the bond of peace. There is one body, and one Spirit, even as you are called in one hope of your calling; One Lord, one faith, one baptism, One God and Father of all, who is above all, and through all, and in you all. But unto every one of us is given grace according to the measure of the gift of Christ.” Ephesians 4: 3-7 KJV

God, Lord of the Breakthrough

“And David enquired of the Lord, saying, Shall I go up to the Philistines? Wilt thou deliver them into mine hand? And the Lord said unto David, Go up: for I will doubtless deliver the Philistines into thine hand. And David came to Baal- Perazim, and David smote them there, and said, The Lord hath broken forth upon mine enemies before me, as the breach of waters. Therefore he called the name of that place Baal- Perazim” (2 Samuel 5:19-20).

Through Him in concert

Through Him will be in concert at 6:30 p.m. Saturday, March 5, at First Southern Baptist Church, 6111 U.S. 270 East at Sheridan. Food and fellowship will be held after the concert. (Special to The Commercial)

Life for Life

I wish to thank The Pine Bluff Commercial for the public forum section that is printed weekly. I agree with Pastor Jesse C. Turner concerning, “Life for Life.”

What is Truth?

I once heard someone say, “It doesn’t really matter what you believe as long as you are passionate and sincere.” While I admire sincerity and passion, you can be sincerely and passionately wrong. Truth is what matters. John 8:32 says the truth will set us free. What is truth?
