"On the evening of that first day of the week, when the disciples were together, with the doors locked for fear of the Jewish leaders, Jesus came and stood among them and said, “Peace be with you!” After he said this, he showed them his hands and side. The disciples were overjoyed when they saw the Lord.
Again Jesus said, “Peace be with you! As the Father has sent me, I am sending you.” And with that he breathed on them and said, “Receive the Holy Spirit. If you forgive anyone’s sins, their sins are forgiven; if you do not forgive them, they are not forgiven.” John 20:19-23 (NIV)
Today's message will be focused on whether we choose comfort first, rather than following Jesus with all our heart, soul, mind and strength, above all else. The challenging thing is that when we choose comfort first, the result is often unfulfulling and we feel the need to chase after even more comfort. But when we put following Jesus first the result is Peace (Perfect Peace)!! God Bless, Brett
