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)

God wants to use you

“For consider your calling, brethren, that there were not many wise according to the flesh, not many mighty, not many noble; but God has chosen the foolish things of the world to shame the wise, and God has chosen the weak things of the world to shame the things which are strong, and the base things of the world and the despised God has chosen, the things that are not, so that He may nullify the things that are, so that no man may boast before God. But by His doing you are in Christ Jesus, who became to us wisdom from God, and righteousness and sanctification, and redemption, so that, just as it is written, ‘Let him who boasts, boast in the Lord’.” 1 Corinthians 1:26-31 New American Standard Bible.

A more healthy you

Did you know that the word “stressed” spelled backwards is “desserts”? That seems like a holy combination. I mean, who doesn’t like desserts? But sometimes desserts don’t like us when it comes to the extra calories and pounds they can produce. Now, there’s nothing wrong with desserts in moderation and proper portions but I want to discuss a more healthy you - and that involves more than limiting the number of banana puddings and DQ Blizzards you eat.

Prayer rally draws crowd

Approximately 100 people gathered Aug. 1 for Prayer Rally 2015 at the Pine Bluff Civic Center steps. The city-wide prayer rally was the vision given to Saint Mary Harris, apostle/senior pastor of House of Bread Deliverance Church at Pine Bluff.

Overcoming anger

Have you ever allowed anger to overtake you in such a way that you did something stupid? Did your lack of self-control cause you to regret your actions? Recently my two year old son was playing ball with a friend.
