Good Friday, the day of redemption, the special day we are to view the cross. There was an action that was required, to pay for the wages of sin, to redeem the guilty and to give mankind the only way to be saved. Sinless Jesus, the Holy Lamb of God who was slain paid the penalty and redeemed mankind back to God by dying on the cross and giving His blood as a sacrifice. This blood paid our debt and Jesus stands today in the gap between sinful man and our loving God to offer whosoever will the opportunity to be born again. Thank God this day happened.
Today Good Friday @ 10:30 there is a one hour service at My Father’s House (Bethel Pentecostal Church) in Glace Bay. There will be a time of food and fellowship following the service.
Tomorrow morning at 8:30 is our annual men’s breakfast. The men of our church under the leadership of Martin host this event and it brings men in from across the region to eat, rejoice, sing, and hear the word of the Lord.
Easter Sunday morning I will be sharing, ‘Easter Jesus.’ When Jesus rose from the grave He had completed His mission of redemption but it was a new day now for planet earth. How does our living Jesus effect you?
Easter Sunday evening at 6 we gather at the Faith Baptist Church for food, fellowship, and a Water Baptism Service. We have around a dozen people who have signed up to follow the Lord in obeying the scriptures in this area. This service is so special, not only for those who are Baptized but for every believer in our church.
For the next couple of weeks at our mid-week Bible Study Rose Mary will be teaching us from the Word, ‘A Christian Woman’s Role In Life.’ Titus 2:3-5 Similarly, teach the older women to live in a way that honors God. They must not slander others or be heavy drinkers. Instead, they should teach others what is good. These older women must train the younger women to love their husbands and their children, to live wisely and be pure, to work in their homes, to do good, and to be submissive to their husbands. Then they will not bring shame on the word of God.”
Continue to pray for all those in need, looking forward to seeing you soon, lots of love, Pastor Kevin and Alice
