Brothers and sisters,
Happy Monday to all! What a fantastic Resurrection Sunday we celebrated yesterday! How wonderful it was to sing praises to the risen Christ! How wonderful it was to read from the Scripture about this most important event in history remembering Jesus’ complete victory over death! How wonderful it was to witness George Linde and Lauri Skille confess Jesus as Lord in baptism! The message from 1 Corinthians 15 reminded us of the continual hope we have because of the bodily resurrection of Jesus from the dead. It may have looked bad on that Friday afternoon almost 2000 years ago after Jesus was crucified and buried in a borrowed tomb. But now on that following first resurrection Sunday, Jesus broke the chains of death over mankind by rising physically and bodily from the grave never to die again. Jesus ripped the gates of death off its hinges so that all who believe in Him will not perish but have everlasting life. Jesus Christ’s bodily resurrection provides the sure foundation for our faith.
We will be beginning a new virtual Bible Study of the book of Galatians this Wednesday, April 7 at 6:30 PM. If you did not join us for the last virtual study and would like to be part of this study, let me know so I can add you to the email list to send you the weekly link.
We will have our annual business meeting on Sunday April 11 right after our morning worship. We will provide a zoom link for all who want to join us virtually on that day so we can receive your feedback.
Remember to keep praying continually for each other.
Bob Ray, Pastor, East Madison Baptist Church
