Lord Bring us from Death to Life.

This week Reverend Brown reminds us that what we see isn't always what it seems. We may see an object bereft of life but to God it's just a vessel to be filled with life. Using the text of Ezekial 37:1-14 Reverend Brown reminds us of how Ezekial was shown a bed of dry bones. By preaching to the bones they came back to life. How many of us have passed by only seeing dry bones and not something or someone worthy of a little of Gods attention.

You Got To Stay In It To Win It.

This week Reverend Brown reads from Genesis 48:11-19 and talks to us about having to stick with the program if we are going to get results. Whether it's an exercise for our physical body or following in the foot steps of Christ for our spiritual body if we don't stick with it we shall forever be disappointed. Just as Joseph followed gods path and was given great riches we too will receive our due if we only stick with the path God has chosen for us.

God Sent You Ahead.

This week Reverend Brown reads from Genesis 45:1-12 and reminds us that all our blessings come for a reason. When we have been so blessed it's incumbent upon us to carry this blessing on to others. Where ever we are in our daily duties we can always lend a hand to others along the way. In doing so we carry on the blessings we have received.

This Family Could Have Been Saved.

This week Reverend Brown reads from Genesis 25:5-11,19-21,23-24,28 and asks us what have we done in our families to create strife and discontent. With the realization that we are human and fallible we always need to be conscious of how our treatment of members in our family can turn them against each other. Looking at our relationships we can always find ways to improve how we relate to one another.

Esau and Jacob As Rivals.

This week is a very special event as this is the ordination sermon of our own Mr. Wesley Sun. Mr. Sun has been with First Baptist as a seminary intern and during this year has received the call and chose First Baptist as the home to enter into Gods service. Join us in listening to this sermon where he shows he is competent to be a leader in the church of god. Mr. Sun reads from Genesis 25:19-35 Mr Sun gives us a fresh look at this story and how it might relate to our modern world.

At the end of this sermon the church body agreed unanimously that Mr. Sun should become Reverend Sun. It is with great pleasure we welcome Reverend Sun into the pastoral staff of First baptist.

Stop The Baby Mama Drama.

Reading from Genesis 21:9-21 Reverend Brown reminds us to always maintain our perspective when dealing with others. How often do we use our children as pawns in relationships with other adults. Isn't it time to accept our responsibilities as Fathers and Mothers to take care of and love our children while leaving our personal wants and desires out of the picture.

Two Kinds of Laughter.

When asked to do the impossible how often have we given as our response a cynical laugh, with the tag line "Who Me?" Reading from Genesis 15:5-6;18:11-14;21:1-8 we hear the story of Sara who on hearing Gods plan for her laughs too. It's only when Gods plan plays out and she sees it is true does she really laugh. So when we are asked of the impossible, do we laugh cynically or heartily at a job well done?

How Much Are You Worth.

With September and everyone back in school everyone is back from vacation and we have Reverend Jesse Brown back in the pulpit. Reading from Genesis 1:26-30 Reverend Brown this week talks to us about self worth. What do we need to feel worthy. Is it a complement, is it a man or is it a new car. If these are what cause us to feel worthy maybe we need to revisit that. The love of a man a women or the smell of a new car maybe be fleeting, but the love of Jesus and God is never ending. We need to accept that all we truely need to feel loved is to accept Christ into our hearts.

Gods Word Lasts Forever.

This week we were relieved to hear our mission team made it safely to New York with the hurricane bearing down on Jamaica. With Reverend Brown in and the group seeking ways to get out of New York, our own Reverend Joanne Lindstrom provides the sermon today. She talks to us about how it\'s not the big things the continue to pave the way for the Lord in the world but the little things we do everyday. The child helped with homework, the beggar who we give a quarter too, the single mother who we helped get the groceries home. Along with Joanne this week we have our own Anne Geddes providing the musical selections for this week.

Gods Plan for Freedom

In his letter to the exiles Jeremiah outlines gods plan for the people to regain their place in Jerusalem. Reading from Jeremiah 29:1-14 Reverend Brown asks us are we following gods plan or our own plan? If we don't follow gods plan we might be left out and find ourselves in exile.

The Cultural Captivity Of The Church.

This week Reverend Brown explores whether changes in the church are the result of gods influence or the influence of society. Reading from Jeremiah 7:11-15 Reverend Brown asks is your church a victim of change for cultural reasons or is God directing you in a new way. When church's ignore Gods word to fit in society they risk losing their way and becoming negative influences in our world. .

Who is in your five?

Well it is summer in the city and with the long days and warm nights we've become a little lazy here at FBCpreacher and am running a little behind in our posting of the podcasts. So for the next few weeks we will be putting up two sermons a week trying to catch up. So here is Rev. Browns sermon from July 8th were he reads from Zephanniah 3:1-5,8-9. With our world so connected who are on your favorite five? Do all your connections reflect gods intentions? If you have connections in your life that don't extend gods reach into the world it might be time to review who your spending your time with.

Are We Good Samaritans or Just Samaritans?

Once again another year has gone by and we are again at our annual Mens Day. This year we are pleased to have as our guest speaker Reverend Paul Ford. Using as the bases of his sermon this week Reverend Ford reads from Luke 10:25-37. We all know the story of the Good Samaritan but do we ever stop to think about the robbers who the story tells us very little. Why indeed their actions were dastardly what drove them to rob and beat the man. How often have we passed by others who are sitting by the side of the road neglected and abandoned by society. Only when these unfortunate people are driven to acts of violence do we ever pay then any heed. Reverend Ford reminds us when we pass by our fellow man and fail to help them along, we are as complicit in their crimes as they are..

Become As Little Children?

This week we see that when the lord has a message he sees it gets out. With only minutes to prepare our student intern Mr Wesley Sun was pressed into the pulpit to give this weeks sermon. Thus this week Wesley preaches from Matthew 18:1-3. Where Jesus makes the statement that to enter the kingdom of heaven we all must be like children. He explores several ideas of what it's like to be children and makes the case that we as christians must always be on guard to protect those in our society that need protection as we too are never far from needing protection ourselves.

It's Time To Relocate?

This week Reverend Brown teaches from the text of Isaiah 5:1-3,6-11. Reverend Brown asks us how our daily living reflects the ways of the lord. If we are not truly living in the ways of the lord then we may not only need to change our ways but move from where we are.

Also this week we participated in the funeral service of Carl Price a long time member of First Baptist. He was the husband of our music director Virgina Price, please keep Virgina and her family in your prayers as they go though time time of adjustment. As a tribute to the family we have included as our musical selections two selections from this weeks service.

Does God Hang Up On Us?

We wish to thank all who prayed for our Senior pastor Reverend Jesse Brown when he was taken ill two Sundays ago. This week we welcome him back after many trips to the Doctor and a short stay in the hospital. This week Reverend Brown teaches from the text of Isaiah 1:10-11,14-20. Reverend Brown talks to us how Gods conservation with us is never finished. While we may hang up on people from whom we don't appreciate the message they are delivering, God message is consistent and forever. Reverend Brown reminds us this week that no matter how far we may have strayed from the message God keeps the line open if only we take the time to listen.

This week we also unveiled our new sign. While a long time in coming the wait was well worth it. We now have a new presence in the community that will announce our activities in the neighborhood.
