Sisters and brothers,
Happy Monday to all! It was a fitting follow up to the Christmas season yesterday to remember why Jesus came. We remembered the reason as we celebrated the Lord’s Supper together. Jesus’ body was broken, and His blood was shed for the forgiveness of our sins. Then from John 20, we remembered our Savior rose physically, bodily, historically from the grave to never die again. Jesus came to rise from death so that death might be forever destroyed for all who will believe in Him. The empty tomb testifies Jesus forever conquered death and destroyed death’s power for all who will believe in Him. Are you believing now in this Jesus? Today embrace Him, trust Him, receive the forgiveness and life the risen Jesus offers you today. And as you believe, live every day in the forgiveness He gives and the assurance that death has been conquered for you!
Remember to keep praying continually for each other.
Love being your pastor,
Bob Ray, Pastor, East Madison Baptist Church
