COME AND REST
The apostles returned to Jesus and told him all that they had done and taught. 31 And he said to them, “Come away by yourselves to a desolate place and rest a while.” For many were coming and going, and they had no leisure even to eat.
Mark 6:30-31 (ESV)
The Disciples had just fed the 5000. If that only included men and women and children were there, that could mean that each disciple had to serve and clean up after 1000 people each. I can see them getting tired, making sure that every one got fed and then collect left overs.
Rest is pretty important and it is important to God. Resting our minds from the news and world affairs is invaluable. We can only have the real peace of Jesus that comes from His world and not this world, if we take the time to rest with Him. COME AWAY with Jesus.
It is ok to just rest today during our time.
How are you experiencing the presence and peace of Jesus?
How can you COME AWAY more effectively and more often?
Write your thoughts and prayer.
Please pray that our church family works hard with and for Jesus and rests with Jesus.
Please pray for people to find rest in Jesus at our outreach event April 11, 2020.
Write down one thing for which you are grateful.
