Do you need rest? Join Pastor Chuck Swindoll as he discusses the unique rest that none but Christ can offer us. For none but Christ can offer access to our Father in heaven.
You know what causes stress? Anxiety. Do you know how to rid your life of anxiety? Rest. Resting in Christ is the quickest way to rid your life of harmful stress. “Come to Me, all who are weary and heavy-laden, and I will give you rest.”
When you worry, it’s like you’re carrying around a heavy burden. You’re weighed down with anxiety and you can’t think clearly. Wouldn’t it be so much easier to give your burdens and worries over to God? He says He’ll take it and will give you peace in return. That’s a pretty good exchange.
Like potatoes in a pressure cooker, we 21st-century creatures understand the meaning of stress. A week doesn’t pass without a few skirmishes with those “extrinsic agents” that beat upon our fragile frames.
Pride makes us strive to meet all the demands of others. We want to show that we can “do it all” but in the end all we’re doing is frantically sprinting through the day.
When circumstances are overwhelming you have a choice. You can focus on your problems, or on God. When you focus on God you shift the burden from your shoulders to His, making room for the peace only He can provide.
The enemy of our souls wants us to live in a noisy state of distraction from things that give us meaning and purpose.
In this sermon by Pastor Chuck Swindoll, learn the profile of a pharisaic legalist, so you can steer clear of their stifling rules. You were bought by Christ and for Christ, so you might live in the image of Christ with all its freedom.
