Brothers and sisters,
Happy Monday to all! All who gathered yesterday understood a little bit more how one day in the house of the Lord with the family of God is better than a thousand elsewhere. Then, from Mark 1 and 2, we learned that our greatest need is for forgiveness for our sins through Jesus. If we seek God only for our immediate physical, emotional, and material needs to be met, we are missing the boat. Our greatest need is to encounter the living Lord Jesus Christ who justly paid for and will forgive sins. In Jesus, our sins can be justly forgiven. If we move in desperation toward Jesus knowing our greatest need, Jesus with compassion moves quickly toward us.Jesus moves toward those who desperately need and seek Him. There is no other requirement today to find Jesus than to know that you desperately need Him. Move toward Jesus right now.
Remember to keep praying continually for each other.
Love being your pastor!
Bob Ray, Pastor, East Madison Baptist Church
