Brothers and sisters,
Happy Monday to all! Yesterday from Matthew 26 we considered God’s ultimate control of history. When events looked chaotic and out of control when Jesus was betrayed and arrested, Jesus was in control! Sometimes the events of our lives will not make sense from our perspective. They will seem arbitrary and chaotic. It will seem like God is not in control. It will seem like the godless, immoral and unrighteous have the upper hand. It will seem like we or someone we looked up to have failed God miserably. But never forget, God is bringing about His redemptive purposes. God ultimately is in control of history. God is bringing history to its ultimate climax of destroying evil completely. God is working in and through all the events of history to ultimately bring about the eternal reign of His eternal Son, Jesus Christ, as King of kings and Lord of lords. God always ultimately controls the course of history which will reestablish forever His eternal rule over His universe.
Because we celebrated the Lord’s Supper just a couple of weeks ago and out of abundance of precaution, we will not have the Lord’s Supper this Sunday, March 15. I know many in our community have been ill (Carla and I have been ill with the flu this week but are recovering) and we don’t want to spread disease.
Thanks for your understanding.
The city has on their agenda on April 1, 2020 our application for a variance on our sign project. Please be praying about this. LaCrosse Sign has told me that we should know their recommendations that night at the meeting.
Remember to keep praying continually for each other.
Love being your pastor!
Bob Ray, Pastor, East Madison Baptist Church
