Houston's First Baptist Church is a relevant biblical community where we gather our hearts, grow our souls and give our lives as we seek to fulfill the Great Commission (Matthew 28:19-20). This podcast provides weekly messages from Pastor Gregg Matte and others. Visit us at HoustonsFirst.org to learn more about HFBC, and visit us in person the next time you're in Houston!
Hearing from God is at the center of the Christian well being. To hear God, we need to be disciplined in our daily walk with Him, and we need to be not only desperate and desiring to hear His voice but also dedicated to responding and obeying when He speaks. God is listening when we pray, so let’s love Him in return by leaning in to hear Him as well.
New Ways, New You
As we begin a new year, allow the difficulty of 2020 to draw you into deeper devotion of the Lord in 2021. Let’s be determined this year to do what needs to be done and walk in a way that shows faith and trust in the Lord. When we devote ourselves to the things of the Lord, we will see how it makes a difference in our hearts and lives.
Appearing Sooner Than You Think
As we look toward 2021, may our expectations be reset. Even if the world around us becomes worse, we need to keep doing what we have been called to do. We need to love well, live in purity, and eagerly wait for His return.
We have just come through Revelation 5 which is all about worshipping Christ. As we head towards Christmas, let's join with the chorus of Heaven and creation that worshipped Him in the manger and that is worshipping Him now.
A Heavenly Look at Unity
As we study Revelation, we get a window into Heaven and what it will be like. We see praise, bowls full of prayers, and people from every tribe, nation, and tongue. May we live each day with fresh praise and prayerful hearts, and may our love for others reflect the heart of God and the unity we see in Heaven.
He is Worthy
There are problems happening in our lives that we can’t fix, and It’s these things that cause us to turn to Jesus. Jesus Christ is our hope and He is the savior of the world. He is of the right lineage, He is the lion of Judah, and He is the lamb that was slain for us all. As we study Revelation in this Christmas season, we can look back with hope at when Jesus came, and we can look forward with hope as we await His second coming.
