Reflections from Pastor Jennifer
Why Do We Celebrate?
Happy Labor Day!
Labor Day should also be a day for believers to rejoice. I Corinthians 15:58 tells us, "Therefore, my dear brothers and sisters, stand firm. Let nothing move you. Always give yourselves fully to the work of the Lord, because you know that your labor in the Lord is not in vain." Paul said this to the church at Corinth, but it also applies to all believers. God will not forget you. Anything that you have done/are doing for Him is on record. The world may never know the effort that you make, the tears that you cry, or the time that you devote, but God does.
When your labors have worn you out, remember that Jesus invited those of us who were weary to come to Him. That invitation stands today - Labor Day - and any other day when it feels like too much. This life is not for the lazy or the faint of heart. But when we are weak, we are invited to take a labor day. This year, in the midst of lake time or barbeques or whatever you may be doing, be encouraged in the Lord. He sees you.
