Message: Picking Up the Pieces: Surviving Every-Day Failure (Proverbs 24:16)

We all will fail. We all will fall. It’s going to happen. it’s a part of life. However, failure doesn’t have to be final. The scripture says that “though the righteous fall seven times, they rise again” (Proverbs 24:16).  To deal with failure, you must accept it, learn from it, and get back up and try again! Getting back up applies to all areas of our lives – our career, health, relationships, finances, and most importantly, our spiritual life. Develop the habit of trying again. Don’t discount God’s ability to do the miraculous. The Bible says the wicked stumble when calamity strikes and the righteous rise again. I know you’ve experienced failure. Accept it, learn from it, get up and try again. We only fail when we refuse to get up and try again. The Bible says we all have fallen (Romans 3:23). Everyone one of us. There are none righteous (Romans 3:10). The good news is that God has done for us what is necessary to rescue us from our failure, our sin. He sent His son, Jesus (John 3:16). If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just to forgive us and cleanse us of all unrighteousness. Jesus wants to rescue you today.

What If I Took Control of My Money (Proverbs 13:16

Pastor Carl McCray continues his “What if” sermons. Today’s topic is “What if I took control of my money.”  First of all, you need to realize that it’s not really your money.  It’s given to you by God, and you are a steward of what He has given to you.  Most of the time, it’s not a matter of having enough, it’s a matter of not managing it well.  Once you get your financial means under control, you will experience peace and contentment, and you will begin to make a difference in the lives of others. 

Watch and listen as Pastor Carl shares what he has learned from following Jesus over the years about money.

What if? Why Not? – What if I took control of my words? (James 3)

I am so excited to be a part of the Burgin Baptist Church family! If you don’t have a faith family, I invite you to visit us at Burgin Baptist.  Today, Herbie Lyons shared his personal testimony about following Jesus, and he shared this profound statement: “believe, trust, and have faith and He will bless!”  The Burgin Baptist choir reminded us with the song, “Just a Little Talk with Jesus,” that Jesus answers prayers. “He will hear our faintest cry, He will answer by and by.” Pastor Carl McCray helped us explore the possibilities of “What if? Why Not? What If I took control of my words?” Watch the video and be blessed!
