Jesus in My Rest

Sermon from CCM:Gorton


This sermon was preached by Mim Ballard at the CCM Gorton site of Christ Church Manchester on Sunday 8th January 2019.


How can Jesus work with us during busy times?

  • Jesus didn’t intend for us to be tired all of the time, it is important that whilst we are busy. We take time out of our busy schedules to spend more time with him.
  • It is important not to lose sight of Jesus in our lives. We should be persistent in calling upon him even during our leisure time.
  • Jesus understands we all have responsibilities in this life to attend to but Jesus calls us to share our burdens with him so we can manage life better.

Jesus in our Sabbath time

  • As Christians it is important that we observe the Sabbath as it is a holy day in which we are called to worship and rest.
  • We need to be strict with ourselves and keep a balance which is why it is important to take part in the Sabbath.
  • Rest is essential to building a nation and is the only way to lead effective ministry. We grow closer to God when we rest with him.
  • How can we make sure we rely more on God this year and make sure we put him first?. It is good to practice sticking to the Sabbath days. 
  • We can only sustain our faith by resting with Jesus and being at peace with him and ourselves.
