. . .THERE'S NO PLACE LIKE THIS PLACE, ANYWHERE NEAR THIS PLACE. . . SO THIS MUST BE THE PLACE. . . . .

TO COME AND WORSHIP THE LORD, IN SONG, SPIRIT, AND FELLOWSHIP !

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.

 

YOU ARE ALWAYS WELCOME AT THE LIGGETT BAPTIST CHURCH

“Grace,” according to the dictionary,  is the unmerited favor  of God toward mankind. The word “grace” is used over 170 times in the New Testament alone. Grace is not bought. It is a free gift of almighty God to needy mankind. When WE picture Jesus Christ dying on the cross, WE SHOULD see the free gift of God’s grace in Christ reconciling the world unto Himself. IT REMINDS US OF THE SONG .. “AMAZING GRACE” -  “Amazing grace, how sweet the sound that saved a wretch like me.  I once was lost,  but now  am found, was blind, but now I see.”

Yes, the grace of God is a reality. Thousands have tried, tested, and proved that it is more than a cold creed, a docile doctrine, or a tedious theory. The grace of God has been tested in  the crucible of  human experience, and has been  found to be more than an equal for the problems and sins of humanity.

                                                                            YOURS IN CHRIST,

                                                                             PASTOR BOBby

february, 2020

    “therefore let us pursue the things which make for peace and the things by which one   may edify another” (Romans 14:19 nkjv).

February is often called “the love month” because of Valentine’s Day and love is associated with Valentine’s Day. However, Love is built on trust. When you really love people, you believe in them. You trust them.    You build their confidence. You relieve their fears.

If you can’t learn to trust people, you’ll never  learn to love or learn to be loved. A lot of people who think they have a love problem really have a trust problem, because love and trust go together.

When Jesus went to his hometown of Nazareth, the people who heard him teach did not believe him and were even offended by him.  As a result, Jesus  “could not do any miracles there, except lay his hands on a few sick people and heal them. He was amazed at their lack of faith” (Mark 6:5-6 NIV).

It wasn’t Jesus’ lack of faith that prevented the miracles. He could not do a good work in his home-town because of the people’s lack of faith and trust in him.

If that’s true of Jesus,  then it’s definitely  true of you. When  people don’t trust you, you are not empowered to reach your potential.  And when you don’t trust other people, you limit them. If people don’t believe in you,  trust you, or show confidence in you, then it holds you back. But when the people who love you show faith in you, it brings out the best in you. It gives you faith in yourself. It helps you fulfill your purpose.

Do you want a love that lasts forever? Then show someone that they have your trust. When you do, you’ll build their confidence, and you’ll earn their love, and faith in you.

                                                                                            In his love,

    MARCH, 2020

The month of march is referred to as the "windy month" and it’s also known for flying kites…sailing… AND other things that require a good wind.

March is also a month we like to think of spring approaching and weather becoming a little more warmer. Opening of windows and doors, spring cleaning… refreshing all that winter has left us with staying indoors and things piling up.  Sometimes in march you want one of those days when you just want to flood the house with the freshness of the outside air.

How about Spiritually? Are there days when you just feel like you need to fling open your heart for the Holy Spirit to blow through … penetrating your soul and life.

We all need "freshening up"… a new feeling. we need to be revived in our spirit as Peter was on the day of Pentecost!

Acts 2:2-4 (KJV)

2 And suddenly there came a sound from  heaven as  of a rushing mighty wind, and it filled all the house where they were sitting.

3 And there appeared unto them cloven tongues like as of fire, and it sat upon each of them.

4 And they were all filled with the Holy Ghost, and began to speak with other tongues, as the Spirit gave them utterance.

Immediately following this awesome action by the Holy Spirit, Peter was empowered to preach as never before! The first revival was heard in the land - and this was the first since Christ had been crucified and resurrected! Peter felt the "power" of the Holy Spirit! He was revived in spirit— he was rejuvenated! Boldness came over him like never before!

        Acts 2:41 (KJV)

41 Then they that gladly received his word were baptized: and the same day there were added unto them about three thousand souls.

Can you IMAGINE that? Do you FEEL the sense of urgency that Peter felt—to tell—to share—what he had? We all should. And if we don’t then we need to open our heart’s door and windows and let the wind of the Holy spirit flow through us …  a revival of our spirits.

       John 4:23-24 (KJV)

23 But the hour cometh,  and now is,  when the true worshippers shall worship the Father in spirit and in truth: for the Father seeketh such to worship him.

24 God is a Spirit: and they that worship him must worship him in spirit and in truth.

He’s looking for us…you and me…Where will He find us? Living it up—not really concerned about others? Shopping for things we don’t really need? Neglecting the very things  He has  placed in our lives to tend to? Or —  WILL WE BE on  our faces  seeking Him?  Trying to be  more like Him. Soaking in His Word.  Praying for His Spirit to give us a new "smell".

A lot of us love this time of year (with the exception of allergies)… we enjoy opening the windows and doors to the fresh morning air and sunshine. We all need the sunshine. The months of  January and February were filled with Too many  CLOUDY, rainy days and we have a tendency to feel "rainy" on the inside.  We need the Son-shine even more. We need the Spirit of the most High God in my life—daily.

Let's submit ourselves once again to the Spirit of God! Take heed to which direction the Spirit is blowing and be empowered to do the work He  has called us to!! We can do nothing without Him!

Know why? Because god is good all the time ….and all the time god is GOOD!

In his love
