Have a Good Day!

What do you say to someone who says, “Have a good day”? Have you ever felt like saying, “I wish I could”?

Wouldn’t it be nice if we always did have a good day? Unfortunately, life doesn’t work that way. Some days are miserable. Some days we spin our wheels. Some days are filled with pain, perhaps physical and perhaps emotional. Some days we’re just sick and tired of being sick and tired.

It is possible to have a good day every day. Jesus says so.

“Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. . . . You will find rest for your souls” (Matthew 11:28,29).

Jesus died to pay for all we’ve ever done wrong and to free us from a guilty conscience. He offers rest and peace. He even promises to take his children to live with him in heaven. He proved it by coming back to life.

So even on a bad day, we can know our Savior is watching over us. Even when everything seems wrong on earth, we can have the bright hope of bliss in heaven.

Jesus came to rescue you and me from this world for a better one. Because of him we know who we are, why we are here, and where we are going.

Be sure and join us for worship each Sunday (and Wednesday nights during Lent!) to hear more about what Jesus did for you. Oh, and have a good day!
