Brothers and sisters,
Happy Monday to all! It was wonderful to be with all of you yesterday to adore and worship our great God. We thought from the last part of John 10 about the true security of those who belong to Jesus Christ. The enemies of Jesus tried to trap him, but they learned that they could not trap Jesus. We learned from this passage that no one or no force of evil can ultimately trap or harm those who believe and belong to Jesus! Those who believe are safe and secure in Jesus. Jesus’ words testify that Jesus is Savior and Messiah. Jesus’ followers testify to Him, know His voice, and He keeps them eternally secure. Jesus’ works and God’s written Word testify that Jesus saves. Jesus’ followers continuing testimony to salvation in Jesus never fails to bear fruit. Jesus saves and keeps safe and saved all who believe. Do you want that kind of life and security and hope and purpose? Jesus gives it if you will believe. Following Jesus means that we are forever protected from those who would destroy us.
We will celebrate the Lord’s Supper next Sunday, June 20, 2021, during our morning worship at 9:00 AM. Also, next Sunday is the conclusion of our baby bottles offerings for CareNet.
Kathleen Brandenburg’s father’s funeral will be held on Friday, June 18, at Good Shepherd Lutheran Church, 5701 Raymond Road, at 11:00 AM.
If you are interested in caring for some of the plants and greenery on our church property, let me know. We probably need a small team that could share this responsibility.
Remember to keep praying continually for each other.
Love being your pastor,
Bob Ray, Pastor, East Madison Baptist Church
