Sisters and brothers,
Happy Monday to all! I hope your week has started well. It is truly nice to see the sun and feel spring arriving. Yesterday we had a good day of worship. It was good to have some better weather so we could see some of our wonderful senior saints, who have not been able to be with us because the inclement weather of the last month. East Madison is blest by these wonderful senior saints! As we worshipped yesterday, we saw that we should follow Jesus right now without reservation. We looked at how we should be continually in awe of Him. We examined His power over nature, His power over the forces of evil, and His ability to forgive sin. No one else has this power and ability except Jesus Christ. Jesus, Son of God and Son of Man, has the right to ask us to follow him now no matter what hardships we might face or whatever cost we may have to pay. Don’t be an emotional follower of Jesus who is caught up in the moment without realizing there will be very difficult times in following Jesus. Don’t be like the man who thought He could follow Jesus later when it was more convenient and treated Jesus more like a consultant than King! King Jesus bids us to follow Him now without reservation because He is Lord of heaven and earth.
This weeks, “The Call to Courageous Manhood” men’s small group study will again meet Wednesday, March 20th, at 6:30 PM at David and Annette Juhlin’s home.
We will have the Lord’s Supper, Sunday March 31st, during our morning worship service.
Love being your pastor!
Bob Ray, Pastor, East Madison Baptist Church
