Brothers and sisters,
Happy Monday to all! We had a wonderful day of Bible Study and worship. I am grateful for Deanna, Grace, MaryAnn, Jason, and David who faithfully week after week study and teach the Word of God to those of all ages at East Madison. Thanks to all of you for your faithfulness to God’s Word and love for those you teach. If you or your children are not in a weekly Bible Study, attend a Bible Study led by these faithful people at 9:30 AM on Sunday mornings.
In our worship gathering we joined with believers all over the world in praising the Lord. From Mark 1, we looked at how from the very beginning of His earthly ministry, Jesus was showing how He would defeat completely Satan. Yes, it is good to know sometimes how things will end. This passage from Mark gives us the assurance at the beginning of the earthly ministry of Jesus that Jesus triumphs in the end. Will we believe the complete triumph of Jesus over Satan? Will we believe in the coming compete destruction of evil when Christ Jesus comes again to reign in righteousness? Christ Jesus destroys the power of the enemy through His perfect life, His atoning death, and His physical and bodily resurrection from the dead never to die again.
Remember to keep praying continually for each other.
Love being your pastor!
Bob Ray, Pastor, East Madison Baptist Church
