Happy New Year!!!

Sunday School
Romans 12

  • We are a living sacrifice, holy and acceptable to God.
  • Do not think anymore of yourself than you should.
  • We are many members of one body.
  • Love sincerely.
  • Be joyful in hope, patient in affliction, faithful in prayer.
  • Do not repay anyone evil for evil.
  • If your enemy is hungry, feed him.
  • Do not be overcome by evil, but overcome evil with good.

Matthew 11:28-30  v28 - "Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. v29 - Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls.  v30 - For my yoke is easy and my burden is light."

Subject:  Finding Rest When You're Stressed

  • Are you overwhelmed, discouraged, carry a heavy load or worried?
  • God offers rest to us.
  • Some stress can be healthy, causing positive actions.
  • Too much stress, however, causes anxiety or even health issues.
  • We should find spiritual rest.
  • Jesus says, "I will give you rest."
Threes Ways to Rest
  1. Jesus says come to Him - all who are weary, wounded or heavy laden & He will give you rest.
  2. Walk with Christ - take My yoke upon you.  A yoke is a harness but in this case, it is a teachable method of learning about Christ.
  3. Learn from Christ - Christ is an easy teacher.  Be you transformed......all things are made new.  Christ wants us to have full knowledge of Him.
