Brothers and sisters,
Happy Monday to all! The online worship songs Pete sent allowed us to remember how great a friend we have in Jesus and how during trials, temptations and troubles, Jesus is our refuge! Those songs reminded us that we always have hope because it is found in Christ alone who shines into our night. The online message turned thoughts to the events of the crucifixion and the resurrection. We looked from Matthew 27 how even the enemies of Jesus testified to the truth of who He is. All the things they said to mock Him while He was being crucified and dying in our place were statements proclaiming who Jesus truly is. He is King of the Jews and King of kings. He is the Son of God and the Savior of the world. Jesus did not save Himself, as His enemies tempted Him to do while He was on the cross, so He might save any who will believe in Him. Even today when hostile forces speak against Jesus, they truly reinforce the truth of Jesus as King and Lord before whom all must one day bow.
This week we used tools of technology to be together. We are able to worship together as we view the sermons and worship music online. The ladies met and prayed together Saturday morning through modern technology as Cheryl and Abby set up a virtual meeting. They are planning another meeting for next Saturday morning. Also, we were able to pray together Sunday evening as David set up Sunday evening prayer online. We are also planning to meet again this way next Sunday evening. If you would like to be part of either one and you didn’t get connected, let me know and we will help you get connected. I thank God for these tools we can use to stay connected and proclaim His truth during this time of social distancing.
Pete and I are planning to send you a short message and some songs to help us all worship on Good Friday.
Remember to keep praying continually for each other.
Praying you all stay safe. Love being your pastor!
Bob Ray, Pastor, East Madison Baptist Church
