How Do You “Gut Out” a House?

If you’ve watched any TV lately, you have seen the debris piled in front of houses in countless neighborhoods in Louisiana. The Louisiana Flood of 2016 is of historic proportions. Many areas of Louisiana received half of their normal yearly rainfall in a 24–36 hour period of time. It made for unprecedented flooding. Houses flooded…

What Happens If Your Home Floods?

You may live somewhere that flooding seems very unlikely. If that’s the case, you may be wondering what happens in a flood. If your home or business floods from rising water (and not from a burst pipe or something similar) your home is not covered by your regular homeowner’s insurance. In order to have your…

You Must Answer This Question

As a church of the Lord Jesus Christ, there comes a time when we must answer a basic question. Deal with this question and you start dealing with the heart of your church. Will we be the church of the elder brother or the church of the loving father? We all know the parable of…

A Stranger in America

By: Waylon Bailey ~ Do you feel like a stranger in America? Not long ago, I heard someone say those exact words. They said it doesn’t seem like I know the country anymore. I feel like a stranger. If that’s the way you feel, the First Epistle of Peter is for you. It’s for you…

Historic Louisiana Flooding

It’s not that we aren’t used to water. We have water everywhere. It’s that we’ve simply never (at least in 100 years) seen this much water before. How much water have we had? Most of the affected area (roughly between Hammond to Lafayette or from Interstate 55 to Interstate 49) had over 2 feet of…

Telling Others What You Know

What Makes A Church?

I get asked a lot of questions about church–both from people in the church and out of the church. People often want to know how the church works (people in the church) and who runs the church (people on the outside). Those are valid questions. You may want to know the same. After my sermon…

Our Reward

“The highest reward for a faithful life is not what you get for it but what you become by it”–Warren Wiersbe. “Whoever is kind to the poor lends to the Lord, and he will reward them for what they have done”–Proverbs 19:17. “Here’s the amazing paradox: Obedience to God is seldom rewarded on this fallen…

Be Careful How You Think of Yourself

How are you thinking of yourself? How we think of ourselves is massively important. Remember, as a person thinks in his heart, that’s who he is. Therefore, how you think about yourself truly has long lasting significance. With that in mind, let’s look at two things we need to be careful about as we think…

It Will Never Let You Down

I love working outside in the yard, but I don’t always have the time I need to do it. Last Friday evening was one of those times. I was working hard with my weed eater (it’s really not a Weed Eater brand, but you get the idea). Even though it was late in the afternoon…
