I have been on vacation for the past week, and this morning I had occasion to visit the First Baptist Church of Pell City, Alabama. I didn’t know anything about the church or the pastor as I walked into the sanctuary for morning worship. So, I was delighted to find how God-honoring it turned out to be. Pastor John Thweatt preached on Galatians 2:20, and the sermon was exceptional.
I’m writing about my experience this morning because I think it’s worth noting when you come across something valuable. I have heard many Southern Baptist preachers, and there simply aren’t that many anymore who open up their Bible, explain the meaning of the text, and apply it to the lives of their congregation. Yet Pastor Thweatt did exactly that this morning. He preached the gospel, and the “amen” was welling up in me all the way through.
If you are ever in Pell City, Alabama, be sure to visit the First Baptist Church. If you love the gospel and the preached word, this is a place you don’t want to miss.
