I have often wondered how miserable it would be to live without some of today’s modern conveniences. Air conditioning, cars capable of long travel, and various advances in medicine are all more recent advances that have changed much about how we live.
In the Old Testament, God’s people lived without a sufficient form of payment for their sin. Hebrews 10 addresses the issue of sacrifice. Before Christ came, all the sacrificial offerings of man fell far short of God’s standard for righteousness. The do and don’t rules of living condemned those who tried to live by them. God wanted obedience from His people and was not pleased with the result of His request. He therefore sent Jesus to pay what man could not. Reflect today on how sad our lives would be if we did not have a modern gift in Jesus that changed the world forever.
In Christ, Bro. Les

The Alpha Tau Omega fraternity from Troy on their “Walk Hard” event where 38 members walk from Troy to Panama City (128.3 miles) to raise money for Wounded Warriors. These young men give up their Spring break each year for a different charity. HBC feeds and houses them for one night of their trip. We admire these Christian young men and their dedication and are proud to be able to assist them on their way.
OCC coordinator Chase Childs reported that HBC members packed 500 shoeboxes in just 32 minutes Nov. 17 for Operation Christmas Child. As grandparents, parents, grandchildren and friends gathered on two sides of long tables, one side packed for boys and the other for girls. HBC served as the regional collection point for OCC for the second year with churches and individuals bringing their shoeboxes to be distributed to children all over the world to share the Gospel.
