Happy Monday, February 11, 2019 church!

Brothers and sisters,

Happy Monday to all!  Yesterday we worshipped and thought about how to live out our faith, especially in the spiritual disciplines we practice.  Jesus taught in Matthew 6 that we are to practice spiritual disciplines.  Believers depend on the Holy Spirit, who lives in us, to help us practice them in the right way.  We are to give, pray, fast and every other spiritual discipline we do to the glory of God and not to impress people.  We are to do these things so we will walk closer with God.  If we do these things to impress people, God is not impressed. We are to love Him and live for His glory.   We are to always be careful to live for the glory of God and not the praise of people.

We will begin on Wednesday, March 6 two new small groups. The new ladies group is a study called, “Discerning the Voice of God.” This group will be led by Carla and held at our home. Carla will be sending out an email with more information. Contact her with any questions. The men’s group will be a study called, “The Call to Courageous Manhood.” It will be led by David Juhlin and held at David and Annette Juhlin’s home. You can contact David or me with any questions about the men’s group.

Love being your pastor! 

Bob Ray, Pastor, East Madison Baptist Church
