First Church was told they couldn't preach Jesus. Their response was a very specific prayer, and God answered their prayer in a very specific manner. May we have such boldness. Michael Linton, Pastor FBC Sulphur, LA

The Church in the Community: In the Face of Opposition - Acts 4:1-22 (June 3, 2018)

6/7/2018
More
When the First Church went out into the community, they faced opposition from those in power. We, too, will face opposition if we lead our church to change the community, and that opposition will come from inside the church and out. We have our model response, though. We cannot be quiet. Michael Linton, Pastor FBC Sulphur, LA

The Church in the Community: Compassion Ministry - Acts 3 (May 20, 2018)

6/7/2018
More
The First Church didn't have a lot, materially, to give. When asked for money by the lame man in our passage from Acts, Peter and John didn't have any. But that didn't mean the church didn't have anything to give. They used what they had to share Jesus with this man God loved. Michael Linton, Pastor FBC Sulphur, LA

Experiencing God: Experiencing God in Your Daily Life - Hebrews 10:24-25 (April 15, 2018)

4/16/2018
More
If you want to truly experience God in daily, it begins, with a relationship with Him through Jesus Christ, and then is a result of regular fellowship with the Body of Christ in local churches. Time with other believers is where we get our best worship, discipleship, theology, growth, and encouragement. There is no true growth in Christ outside of regular fellowship with a local church. Michael Linton, Pastor FBC Sulphur, LA

Unity in diversity. That's the call for the church. Different components, working in different ways, to accomplish the same goal. When one part varies from the goal, problems are created, so each member must use their gift for the kingdom. Michael Linton, Pastor FBC Sulphur, LA

Duration:00:42:07

Experiencing God: Experiencing God Through Obedience - John 14:23

3/19/2018
More
We can, and do, have many encounters with God. When we read scripture, when experience His creation, when we pray, or when he speaks to us to guide us. However, we will not truly experience God, in relationship and power, until we are obedient to Him. Michael Linton, Pastor FBC Sulphur, LA

Duration:00:49:01

Experiencing God: God Speaks - John 8:47

2/20/2018
More
This soul-convicting passage of scripture. The devastating message is that you can call yourself a believer, but your actions and your response to God's words prove otherwise. This is a call for a significant heart-check for us all. Michael Linton, Pastor FBC Sulphur, LA

Duration:00:48:41

Experiencing God: Love and God's Invitation - John 14:21

2/12/2018

God's invitation to join Him in His work is always rooted in the relationship between Him and His child that begins in saving faith through Jesus Christ, and is proven by the child's obedience to His commands. Michael Linton, Pastor FBC Sulphur, LA

Duration:00:40:17

2/3/2018

God wants a love relationship with you. He pursues you. He sent His Son to die for you. He has done all the work. You wouldn't want Him if He didn't pursue you. But you must choose Him. God, in His sovereignty, leaves the final choice up to you. You must, as commanded, love Him with everything you have. That's on you. Michael Linton, Pastor FBC Sulphur, LA

Duration:00:56:23

1/23/2018

Where is your trust? What is the source of your plans and strategies. If they come from anywhere other than God, you're doing it wrong. Our trust must always be in Him, regardless of the cost, and especially because of the insanity of the call. Michael Linton, Pastor FBC Sulphur, LA

Duration:00:52:24

Experiencing God: God's Will and Your Life - John 15:5

1/16/2018
More
Jesus saw what God was doing and joined Him. Our strategy is the same: we remain in Jesus and we will see what God is doing. Then, we can join Him there and be in the center of His will. Michael Linton, Pastor FBC Sulphur, LA
