While Sunday's planned services may be in doubt because of the weather--including the special Christmas at First Baptist planned for 5 PM Sunday, by Wednesday evening, things should be OK to be out and about.  You're invited to come enjoy the children's program at First Baptist Church, Robin Road off S. Generals Blvd. (NC150 west).

Dr. Stanley Spence, Pastor
First Baptist Church, Lincolnton, N.C.


As we continue our Christmas season we have much for which to be thankful. Blessings are all around us and we should reflect upon them. We have hospitals and doctors along with the support staff keeping us healthy. We have law enforcement, fire and medic to keep us safe. There are dentists to help us have healthy teeth for eating, and teachers and administrators to educate us. We have politicians and civil servants to keep our communities operating. We have parents or guardians to stabilize our families and so many others who make life a blessing from the supermarket to retail stores for keeping us fed and clothed. What do all these have in common when we need them?

All of these people in our lives bring us a variety of feelings. We feel love, hope and encouragement along with many other things but one thing we likely feel is peace. The peace of knowing we have the resource in God to thrive in this season is huge. If we could focus on the many ways in which God has provided for us in the past we would have peace a-plenty. So how do we get so side-tracked from the main knowledge of peace and let others distract us from God’s peace, the peace He meant for us to have?

Technology for one is a spirit killer for sure. We have our cell phones, our computers, our iPads, our televisions, our videos, our electronic watches and our apps from A to Z which distracts us from the relationship with God through Jesus. Peace in God is a promise for those whose faith is stayed on Him. As we enter this Christmas Season I hope you will seek the peace of Christ coming in the form of a promise made to man, “peace on earth and goodwill to men!”
