Episodes

The Church to the World: When Culture Reacts - Acts 19:23-41 (October 6, 2019)

10/16/2019
More
When the gospel changes lives, it changes a culture. When the culture changes, those who aren't changed by the gospel don't react well. There are responses we can expect if we intend to shine the light of gospel into the darkness of lostness. Michael Linton, Pastor FBC Sulphur, LA

Who's Your One? Die, and Be Forgotten - John 1:40-42 (September 22, 2019)

10/2/2019
More
Your conversation with the One that God has placed on your heart may mean that thousands, even millions, come to Christ later on. Or, it might mean that it is only the eternity of your One that is changed. Either way, your One is priceless. Jesus dies for your One. Your name may never be known on earth, but heaven will rejoice when your One comes to Christ. Michael Linton, Pastor FBC Sulphur, LA

Who's Your One? A Story of Hell - Luke 16:19-31 (September 15, 2019)

9/17/2019
More
Hell is a real place. Hell is also a certainty for those that die outside of a relationship with Jesus Christ. Jesus, in a parable he told, gave us a clear picture of what hell is like. This picture should motivate us to try to keep as many people from going there as possible. Michael Linton, Pastor FBC Sulphur, LA

Who's Your One? The Importance of One - John 1:45-46, 49; Matthew 13:45-46 (September 8, 2019)

9/14/2019
More
While one is very rarely an important number in our lives, it is extremely important in scripture. Heaven rejoices when just one lost person comes to faith in Christ. We each have our one we need to share with. Michael Linton, Pastor FBC Sulphur, LA

Duration:00:43:06

Who's Your One? Healing the Paralytic - Luke 5:17-26 (September 1, 2019)

9/4/2019
More
The call to make disciples means that we are on the field, in the game, doing the work. We have a mission, just like those carrying the paralyzed man to see Jesus. With confident expectation, no obstacle can derail our calling and us seeing a miracle from Jesus. Michael Linton, Pastor FBC Sulphur, LA

Duration:00:43:06

Who's Your One? The Call to Discipleship - Matthew 4:18-22 (August 25, 2019)

8/26/2019
More
The call to follow Jesus is a call to be like Him. In being like Him, we seek the lost so that we can lead them to follow Jesus. We need to find our 'One' that we can bring to Jesus. Michael Linton, Pastor FBC Sulphur, LA

The Church to the World: Our Extraordinary Disobedience - Acts 19:21-23 (August 18, 2019)

8/20/2019
More
Our ability to see God do amazing things in our lives, and then to turn around and be completely disobedient to Him, is just mind-bending. We're in good company with Paul, though. And he proves there's hope. Michael Linton, Pastor FBC Sulphur, LA

Duration:00:44:01

The Church to the World: Our Extraordinary God (Part 2) - Acts 19:18-20 (August 11, 2019)

8/13/2019
More
We've seen His extraordinary power. We exemplify His extraordinary reputation. If we are living the life Jesus has called us to, we will spread His extraordinary impact. Michael Linton, Pastor FBC Sulphur, LA

Duration:00:43:55

The Church to the World: Our Extraordinary God (Part 1) - Acts 19:11-17 (August 4, 2019)

8/6/2019
More
Our extraordinary God is extraordinary in His power. He still works in power today through His people if they will depend on Him to guide and use them. Our extraordinary God is extraordinary in His reputation. His name is great among the nations, but we as His followers must proclaim His name through righteous living. Michael Linton, Pastor FBC Sulphur, LA

The Church to the World: Preach the Kingdom - Acts 19:8-10 (July 28, 2019)

8/6/2019
More
Jesus did it. Paul did it. It's our command as well. We must share the good news of the kingdom of God. In that kingdom is salvation through faith alone, and a life of sanctification through obedience. We must preach the kingdom. Michael Linton, Pastor FBC Sulphur, LA

Duration:00:39:43

The Church to the World: Spirit Empowerment - Acts 19:1-7 (July 21, 2019)

8/5/2019
More
The extravagant misuse of Holy Spirit power in the modern charismatic movement is no excuse for us to discount the very real need for a daily filling of His power. We receive the Holy Spirit only once: upon salvation. But being filled and empowered by Him is a daily necessity that requires us to participate. Michael Linton, Pastor FBC Sulphur, LA

The Church to the World: Discipleship-It Wasn't Just Paul - Acts 18:24-28 (July 14, 2019)

7/15/2019
More
The mission of the church isn't up to a select few, it's the responsibility of every believer. Disciples are to make disciples as a result of their own discipleship. Believers are supposed to Go/Grow. Michael Linton, Pastor FBC Sulphur, LA

Duration:00:46:34

The Church to the World: It's the Little Things - Acts 18:18-23 (July 7, 2019)

7/14/2019
More
Sometimes God speaks to us in small ways that might go unnoticed. However, if we're intentional about hearing from Him when we read His word, we'll find that those small ways He speaks aren't little things at all. Michael Linton, Pastor FBC Sulphur, LA

Duration:00:46:48

The Church to the World: Confirmation Through Persecution - Acts 18:1-17 (June 30, 2019)

7/14/2019
More
Often, the confirmation of our obedience in fulfilling the calling on our lives is the persecution that would seem to derail us from fulfilling the calling. Michael Linton, Pastor FBC Sulphur, LA

Duration:00:50:00

Songs for Life: Reason for Praise - Psalms 9-10 (May 26, 2019)

7/2/2019
More
The gut-punch trials of life can often seem to be more than we can bear. Sometimes, they ARE more than we can bear. But God promises the very thing we need the most: Himself. Michael Linton, Pastor FBC Sulphur, LA

Duration:00:44:23

Songs for Life: Our Magnificent God - Psalm 8 (May 12, 2019)

5/14/2019
More
The heavens declare His magnificence. David saw it, and knew our place in creation. However, our place in that creation actually tells us more about God than it does us. Michael Linton, Pastor FBC Sulphur, LA

Duration:00:45:11

Compassion Sunday: Do What Is Good - Isaiah 1:16-20 (May 5, 2019)

5/9/2019
More
Our regular routine of worship is not acceptable to God, no matter how pure or biblical it appears, if our hearts aren't repentant and our lives don't reflect that repentance. Isaiah is clear on how our lives can show repentance: justice in the social realm. Michael Linton, Pastor FBC Sulphur, LA

Duration:00:46:55

Songs for Life: The Lord Judges - Psalm 7 (April 28, 2019)

5/3/2019
More
False accusations, attacks, bad circumstances, and unwarranted negativity are just a part of life. God is not unaware of our situations, and He judges. That is our hope, even when we can't see the end. Michael Linton, Pastor FBC Sulphur, LA

3 Circles: Brokenness - Genesis 3:1-19 (April 14, 2019)

4/15/2019
More
Brokenness in this world isn't anything anyone needs a lesson on. However, how to fix that brokenness is something we'd all like to know. Hint: we can't do it with our own plans and ways. Michael Linton, Pastor FBC Sulphur, LA
