FIRST BAPTIST CHURCH MCKENZIE
We are so glad you stopped by.
John Bisagno former pastor of Houston's First Baptist Church tells the story of his coming there to candidate for the position of pastor many years ago. He said as he entered the auditorium it was dimly lit, with just a few people huddled together. They were singing some old funeral type song that was depressing. Later that day he took a walk in downtown Houston and came upon a jewelry store. It was some sort of grad opening and there were bright lights and a greeter at the door to welcome you in with a smile. Inside there was a celebration going on. There were refreshments and people having a good time talking and laughing with each other. They welcomed him and offered him some punch. He said after attending both the church and the jewelry store, if the jewelry store had offered him an invitation, he would have joined the jewelry store! This is how Psalm 100 begins: "Shout joyfully to the Lord, all the earth. Serve the Lord with gladness.; come before Him with joyful singing." Do you see the three words of celebration? Joyfully, gladness, and joyful. We meet on Sunday because of the resurrection of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. That is something to celebrate every time we come together. In fact, we should celebrate that truth every single day. His resurrection is our hope of glory. Celebrate Jesus today, and come Sunday and let's celebrate Him together as His redeemed bride and body!!
