What Kind of Neighbors Do You Have?

By: Waylon Bailey ~ As I write this, I’ve just walked back into my house from having the opportunity to help a new neighbor move some heavy furniture into his house. You probably know some of the feelings I had as I walked back across the street. Isn’t it amazing what it does for us…

What Did You Do for Easter?

By: Waylon Bailey ~ I hope you had a great Easter. I certainly did. Let me tell you what we did for Easter. The most wonderful part and the most exciting was getting to worship with God’s family as we celebrated our Lord’s resurrection from the dead. I got to do that four times. (It…

By: Waylon Bailey ~ Somehow, the question almost seems silly. When you look at the biblical record and when you remember the common experience of all mankind, you wonder how anyone could think otherwise.

What Does “My God, My God, Why Have You Forsaken Me?” Mean?

By: Waylon Bailey One of the most difficult passages of Scripture is the saying of Jesus from the cross when he cried out, “My God, my God, why have you forsaken me?” The gospel writer Matthew recorded this penetrating and poignant question (Matthew 27:46). Though Matthew does not give the reason for this “cry of…

Why Church Matters

By: Waylon Bailey ~ I know church matters, but sometimes I know it more than others. Just such an occasion happened yesterday. Martha and I have taken several days vacation. It’s a perfect time of the year in Louisiana – – beautiful weather and the middle of Mardi Gras season. Sometimes it feels that as…
