JULY 13, 2023
The summer is in full swing here at Lakeshore and all around Rochester. Vacations, graduations, parties, and a lot of other things going on… all of which can cause us to feel like we are losing our minds. We feel like even though there are 24 hours in a day, we don’t have enough time to do everything that there is that we need to do. Running back and forth, all around… stuck in this cycle of GET THIS DONE… and we feel it in our core.
I am sure that many of us can relate to this feeling. All of us have felt like this at one time or another in our life. When we do, all that we truly want is to just sit down, relax, and have some peace.
"WE MUST ALLOW CHRIST TO BE OUR PEACE"
At the end of the day, I think that is what all of us are looking for regardless of the situation that we are in; we are all looking for peace. Unfortunately, we turn to so many different things in order to find that peace. All things that can be good in and of themselves, but also things that can leave us just as messed up as we were before if they're the only place we look for peace.
There is really only one true place where we can find peace: through a relationship with Jesus Christ. We must allow Christ to be our peace. When we do so, we'll have peace that only comes from Christ and “transcends all understanding," as Paul says in Philippians 4:7.
Make sure you make plans to be at church this Sunday as we talk more about peace in our current series, Fruit(Full). Have an amazing weekend. We'll see you Sunday!
Love to you all!
