This life can be downright brutal. It is often filled with setbacks, trials and difficulties. One day we are on top of the world and the next we are faced with challenges and the harsh reality of living in an imperfect world. All of this can leave us feeling stressed out, wondering “where can we turn for help?”
It is our Savior Jesus who offers us the help we need. His invitation is clear, “Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest” (Matthew 11:28). On those days when you are fed up or burnt out Jesus says, “Come to me.” It is Jesus and he alone who can give you and me the rest we so desperately need. Rest found in his forgiving love that paid for our sins in full on his cross.
The people here at Ascension Lutheran Church and I have found that rest in the arms of our Savior Jesus. We want you to find rest in Jesus too. Wherever you are in life, we invite you to come and join us. Come and be our guest at worship, Bible class or any other event we offer and find the help you need and the rest you crave in Jesus who gives us life to the full!
Looking forward to meeting you!
