A LITTLE ABOUT OUR CHURCH

We believe the scripture of the Old and New Testaments to be the inspired Word of God. This is the word that we live by to rule our faith and practice. Our mission is to seek and minister to the lost, presenting to them the gospel that they may know Jesus Christ as Savior and Lord. We assemble together to be led by the Holy Spirit in our worship.  We believe in promoting spiritual growth among new believers & maturing Christians and to encourage one another in Christian love.

GREETINGS FROM BARBEE’S GROVE BAPTIST CHURCH

Christmas is upon us. As you look back over the years of your life, do you have special Christmas memories that bless you? I hope so. May I share one of mine with you?

I must have been 14 or 15. Transistor radios that operated on batteries were coming on the market. That Christmas I received one of those radios. It was used, but I did not care. It was about the size of an encyclopedia volume, so I held it on my shoulder as I walked about the neighborhood. I thought I was the “coolest dude around.” Since I mostly listened to country music, others probably considered me to be a “red neck.”

Only later did I learn how I came to receive that radio. I was told that my Dad swapped a coon dog for it! Now, my Dad loved his coon dogs. For him to trade away a dog was a real sacrifice on his part. It was evidence of Dad’s love for me and of his desire to please me.

My Dad’s sacrifice does not begin to compare with the sacrifice that was made in Heaven so long ago. There, a Loving Heavenly Father looked at people lost in sin. People who were on their journey to Hell. It was a people with no hope and no way out of their destiny. That Loving Heavenly Father made a trade. He traded the death of His Son, Jesus, on Calvary’s cross for our salvation!!!! Thank You Father! Thank You Jesus! What an amazing gift of love is offered to us.

That transistor radio has long since been broken, discarded, and thrown into some landfill. It was a precious treasure, but it was not a permanent treasure. Contrast that with Jesus. He is a Precious Treasure who is for today, tomorrow, and for all eternity. Jesus will always be with you. Thank God for Jesus. Receive Him. Live for Him. Worship Him forever.
