beauty than any of the other states in our great land. If you could stand in the center of Big Black Mountain it would look massive on both sides and to realize that we are so small in the middle of it. There are certain cuts in the mountains that you drive through where they literally tower over you on both sides.

But the best part of traveling through these great mountains is getting to view the colors of the fall leaves. these mountains are full of color. Red, orange, yellow, brown…the beauty is beyond words. Every part of every mountain side is covered with vibrant colors. One season would paint a picture of perfect greens shaded with all the right accents, this season would paint a picture of change that was full of vibrant color and warm tones. We can only be amazed as we see the detail of this master’s hand on every mountain and I know He was a God who created and turned things into indescribable beauty.

Psalm 90: 2 “Before the mountains were born or you gave birth to the earth and the world, even from everlasting to everlasting, you are God.”

Ecclesiastes 3: 11 “He has made everything beautiful in its time..”

That’s exactly what He does to us. He is huge in size. He is great above all

Psalm 95: 3-4 “For the Lord is the great God, the great King above all gods. In His hands are the depths of the earth, and the mountain peaks belong to Him.”

God is big but yet He still calls us friend.

John 15: 15 “…I have called you friends , for everything that I learned from the Father I have made known to you.”

He still desires to have a relationship with us above everything else He has created. He is waiting each morning and all during the day for us to meet with Him. He wants us to make our lives vibrant with color, His color, reflecting His name above all else. But this means total surrender. This means letting go of the “paint brush” and allowing Him to paint His perfect picture. Allowing Him to take the areas that are “shaded” and “hidden” and make them new with color. He promises us that through it all, His glory will be revealed. He’s waiting to do that for you!

We At Liggett Baptist Church are so glad every time you come and worship with us. You're a special kind of people and we're glad

that you have chose to  come our way today.  We are all here, hopefully, for one reason and that is to worship our LORD AND SAVIOR JESUS CHRIST.  The miracle of what GOD has done for us should live in our hearts and minds everyday, because we need to be thankful to GOD for sending HIS SON  to die for us and paying our penalty, our sin debt, and especially we thank HIM for his wonderful grace.

                                                                          JANUARy, 2022

For many of us, THE LAST COUPLE OF YEARS haVE  been like no other—so much has been disruptive, stressful, disturbing and even traumatic WITH THE PANDEMIC, DISASTERS, AND THE LOSS OF OUR LOVED ONES, AMONG OTHER THINGS.

AS WE clear OUR mindS AND PROCESS all WE’ve been through in 2021 WE NEED TO PRAY THAT GOD WILL GIVE US WISDOM TO MOVE FORWARD, TO FORGET THE THINGS THAT HAVE CAUSED REGRETS, THE TIMES WE HAVE TRIED TO DO THINGS ON OUR OWN AND FORGOT GOD OR PUT HIM BEHIND US INSTEAD OF IN FRONT OF US FOR LEADERSHIP.

AS WE BEGIN A NEW YEAR, LET‘S HOPE AND PRAY FOR GOD‘S GUIDANCE, HIS LOVE, PROTECTION, COMFORT, IN ALL THAT WE DO FOR HIM. LET US DEEPEN AND STRENGTHEN OUR FAITH AND PRAYERS FOR A BETTER 2022.

LET US HAVE  AN EXCITEMENT  FOR NEW VISIONS, OUTREACH AND SHARING THE GOSPEL (GOOD NEWS) TO MORE PEOPLE. PRAY THAT THIS NEW YEAR WILL BE RULED BY WHATEVER IS TRUE, HONORABLE, PURE, AND WORTHY OF PRAISE.

LET EACH ONE OF OUR PRAYERS  BE THE  STARTING POINT OF  2022 TO  BE THE YEAR, THAT ALL OF THE 365 DAYS WE’LL LOOK FORWARD TO GOD’S GOODNESS AND BLESSINGS.  THAT WE’LL GIVE HIM ALL OUR PRAISE, HONOR AND THANKSGIVING FOR ALL THAT HE HAS IN STORE FOR LIGGETT BAPTIST CHURCH IN THE YEAR OF 2022.

 

                                                                                in his love,

                                                                            PASTOR BOBby

february, 2022

Most of us know that February is the month most often associated with love. We start seeing cupids and hearts in the stores and begin thinking of what to give the one we love. Valentines become available in  January for sending to loved ones in February. This is a good month to think about what real love is.

There’s only one real true love and that’s from god - the love that god has is called Agape - This is totally selfless love.   It's love given without expectation of receiving any benefit in return. It has no conditions and benefits.

God is love and God demonstrated His agape love. Even though we were not worthy - He still sent His Son  to die as a sacrifice for our guilt. I have never deserved God's love but He loved me anyway. Romans 5:8

God responds to those who love Him. He promises that if we look for Him we will find Him. God let Himself be found by me even when I didn't know what I was looking for. He knew what I needed and what my soul was longing for. Proverbs 8:17

God is love. I know about God's love and I believe in how much God loves me. The Bible says that when I live in this love, I live in God and God lives in me. This is hard to understand but I  have seen the results. I have seen the ability to love others grow in me. Because I love God, I can love other people. I love because God loved me first. 1 John 4:16,19

Not much in this world lasts, but three things do - faith, hope and love. Faith is confidence and trust in God. Hope is joyful expectation of eternal salvation - expectation of a permanent home in heaven. Love is true affection for God and for others - affection that grows out of God's love for me. Three things last, faith, hope and love. The greatest of these three things is love. 1 Corinthians 13:13

I am certain that nothing will ever tear me away from God's love. Nothing in this life --nothing seen or unseen, not even my own fears or worries, absolutely nothing can separate me from God's love. That means that nothing, not even the powers of hell, will ever win out over God's love. It isn't because of my strength or anything that I do, but because of Jesus Christ who calls me His own. ---Romans 8:38-39

I love you all - and let’s love one another.

in his love,

pastor bobby

    MARCH, 2022

When we think of life it’s usually a mixed bag filled with both good news and bad news. On the one hand something good may be happening in life—such as a new job, the birth of a child, the excitement of taking a long-awaited trip. On the other hand, and sometimes almost simultaneously, something difficult and hard may happen in life—such as the loss of a parent, a sudden illness, a relational conflict.

So how do we navigate a world in which we are constantly faced with both good news and bad news? The writer of Ecclesiastes wrote, “When times are good, be happy; but when times are bad, consider this: God has made the one as well as the other.” (Ecclesiastes 7:14 – NIV). The Apostle Paul wrote, “And 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 – NIV) And, Jesus said, “In this world you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world.” (John 16:33 – NIV)

The Bible teaches us that, no matter what may be happening in one’s life, whether it is good or bad or a mix of the two, God is with us and is involved in it all. God takes both the good and the bad of life and uses it all for his larger purposes both within our world and within our lives. He is a God who is always with us and who is always at work, no matter the circumstances.

If today you are experiencing that which is good, rejoice and give God thanks. If you are facing the bad, look to God in faith and believe that he is with you, is at work within you, and will help you through it all. Most of all, remember that Jesus has overcome all things and one day his victory will be yours!

Let’s believe God in the midst of both the good news and the bad news of our lives!

in his love,

pastor bobby

APRIL, 2022

 

APRIL SHOWERS, BRING MAY FLOWERS!  HOW OFTEN WE HEAR THAT PHRASE WHEN WE APPROACH THE FIRST DAY OF APRIL.  AFTER WHAT SEEMS LIKE A COLD, LONG WINTER, WE LONG AND LOOK FORWARD TO THE APRIL SHOWERS AND MAY FLOWERS THAT FOLLOW.

HOWEVER THIS APRIL WE LOOK TO EASTER OR RESURRECTION SUNDAY. WE REMEMBER THE SACRIFICE THAT OUR LORD AND SAVIOR  MADE FOR US ALL ON CALVARY'S MOUNTAIN THAT ONE DREADFUL DAY. HE GAVE HIS LIFE THAT WE COULD HAVE LIFE EVERLASTING! HALLELUJAH WHAT A SAVIOR! 

AS WE REFLECT  ON WHAT  JESUS DONE FOR EACH AND EVERY ONE OF US.. LET'S NOT FORGET WHAT A GREAT LOVE OUR HEAVENLY FATHER HAD IN SENDING HIS SON TO PAY FOR OUR SIN DEBT. WE COULD LOOK AT THOSE "APRIL SHOWERS" AS BLESSINGS FROM GOD,  WHO IS GOOD ALL THE TIME AND ALL THE TIME ...HE'S GOOD. 

HAPPY EASTER!

RESURRECTION SUNDAY!

IN HIS LOVE,

PASTOR BOBBY

MAY, 2022

THE MONTH OF MAY ... IT ALWAYS SEEMS TO BE RECOGNIZED FOR SEVERAL GOOD THINGS - ONE IT'S RECOGNIZED  FOR MOTHER'S  DAY ANOTHER IS OUR GRADUATES ...  WHICH ALSO MEANS ANOTHER END OF A SCHOOL YEAR AND OUR CHILDREN ADVANCING TO ANOTHER HIGHER GRADE NEXT SCHOOL YEAR  (WHICH MEANS THEY ARE GETTING OLDER)  AND  MEMORIAL DAY WEEKEND WHICH MEANS A THREE (MAYBE 4) DAY WEEKEND HOLIDAY AND ALSO MOST IMPORTANTLY REMEMBERING OUR VETERANS AND DECORATING THE GRAVES OF OUR LOVED ONES.  

IN LISTING ALL THE HIGHLIGHTS OF MAY I WANT TO PUT MORE IMPORTANCE ON MOTHER’S DAY …So, why should Mother’s Day be a day that we set aside each year to show our enduring love and appreciation for our mothers? Because motherhood is the toughest, most demanding, yet most  important  job in the world. With the many choices for women today, let’s not forget that there is no calling of  God more important than being a mom.

Moms, you’re pulled in so many different directions today. The stress can be unbelievable, but remember that nothing is more important than the investment of time in the life of your child. God’s Word tells us that when a mother does this, her children will rise up and call her blessed, and her husband will praise her, saying, “Many women have done virtuously, but you exceed them all.”

EVEN THOUGH THE MONTH OF MAY WILL  HAVE EXCITING THINGS HAPPENING, BUT OF ALL OF THEM I AM TO BELIEVE THAT MOTHER’S DAY MAY BE THE MOST IMPORTANT.

IN HIS LOVE,

PASTOR BOBBY
