Sisters and brothers,
Happy Monday to all! Yesterday as we worshipped, we praised our great redeemer God. We realized in our praise that no one can compare with the greatness of our God. We then looked at the triumphal entry of Jesus in John 12 as He moved to the ultimate purpose of His mission: to die on the cross in our place taking our punishment and then conquer death by rising again. We thought from John 12 about how God is always revealing Himself to us through His Word. We always want to be growing in our seeing our great God as He truly is. We want to make sure we see God clearly and that our sins and prejudices don’t give us a distorted understanding of who God truly is. We don’t want our cultural lenses or wrong expectations to blur our understanding of who God truly is. We always want to keep reading and studying God’s Word so our understanding of God will become clearer and clearer all throughout our lives. We want to always be seeking to understand God more fully so we will always be walking with Him.
Remember to keep praying continually for each other.
Love being your pastor,
Bob Ray, Pastor, East Madison Baptist Church
