Sisters and brothers,
Happy Monday to all! Yesterday as we worshipped and celebrated the Lord’s Supper, we considered our Savior and the price paid for our salvation and for us to live in community with Him and one another. Then from John 6:60-71, we thought about following Jesus when it is unpopular to follow Him. We thought about following Him at the times we struggle understanding His instructions and His ways. We thought about continuing to follow Jesus even when someone we know turns their backs on Jesus and no longer follows Him. We confess with Peter that Jesus alone has words of eternal life. So, whatever comes our way in the days ahead, no matter how much we might be ridiculed, mocked, opposed or misunderstood, we will follow Jesus. If we want God’s life, real and eternal life, we follow Jesus no matter what comes our way.
We will be continuing our virtual Bible Study of the book of Galatians this Wednesday, April 7 at 6:30 PM. We will be studying Galatians 2. If you would like to be part of this study, let me know so I can add you to the email list to send you the weekly link.
Remember to keep praying continually for each other.
Bob Ray, Pastor, East Madison Baptist Church
