The First Baptist Church is excited to announce that we now have a new pastor. His name is Brother Dwain Pollard and if you haven’t heard Bro. Pollard preach before, you should make a point to attend this coming Sunday morning. It is sure to be a blessing.
The greatest symbol of love is not the hearts we see around Valentine’s day. It is the cross. The cross has been depicted many ways, as in this bulletin today. We’ve “cleaned” the whole story of Jesus, so it is cute and cool – from the birth through the crucifixion. The cross was the worst possible way for a person to be executed. Galatians tells us “Christ has redeemed us from the curse of the Law, by being made a curse for us, as it is written ‘cursed is everyone that hangs on a tree'”! The law of God was given because of sin, but the law was never intended to give us forgiveness. The law was given as a tutor to show us that forgiveness and salvation comes only by the sacrifice of Jesus! The love of the Father in giving Jesus, the love of Jesus in giving himself, the love of the Holy Spirit by coming to live in us – the languages of men have no words!
