Sisters and brothers,
Happy Monday to all! Yesterday we brought praise to our great God and thought about what it truly means to be free. John 8 teaches us true freedom comes to those whose embrace and believe in Jesus. Real freedom enables us to know and follow Jesus. If we do not know Jesus, we might think we are free but, in reality, we are slaves to sin. It dominates us and controls us. If we want to be free today, we must abide in Jesus’ word so we will know the truth that sets us free. Faith in Christ continually frees us from the enslavement of sin. Faith in Christ transfers us into the family of God. Faith in Christ enables us to live without ever really dying. Believe in Jesus and let the Son of God set you free and you will be free indeed.
Put Sunday evening, June 6, on your calendar. We will be having a church picnic on the grounds starting at 6:00 PM. We will not share food but ask you to bring food for your family. I am looking forward to getting together with all of you on that evening. Plan on being here with us on that Sunday evening.
During the weeks between Mother’s Day and Father’s Day, we are participating with CareNet Pregnancy Center of Dane County in the Baby Bottle Campaign to help support this wonderful ministry. Baby bottles are available for you to take. We ask you use these to collect an offering for this ministry, which we shall take to them after Father’s Day.
Remember to keep praying continually for each other.
Bob Ray, Pastor, East Madison Baptist Church
