Sisters and brothers
Happy beautiful Monday to all! Yesterday, we worshipped Jesus Christ, the One “the builders rejected (who) has become the Cornerstone.” We build our lives on the One rejected by the world. The One rejected by the world is chosen and precious to God. Through Him, we are a chosen race, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, and a people that are God’s very own possession. We have been made objects of the mercy of God though at one time we had not received mercy! The very purpose of our lives, the lives of the ones now receiving mercy, is to proclaim the excellencies of Him who called us out of darkness in to His marvelous light. And we know this for certain: everyone who builds his or her life upon Jesus Christ will never, ever be put to shame!
I want to thank those who work with children in Sunday School and those who volunteer for childcare during our worship service. We need you and we appreciate you! Lives invested in children for the Kingdom of God are truly invested in eternity.
Love being your pastor!
Bob Ray, Pastor, East Madison Baptist Church
