John 14:27 (ESV)
Peace I leave with you; my peace I give to you. Not as the world gives do I give to you. Let not your hearts be troubled, neither let them be afraid.
Ice cream has to be one of the best foods on the planet. It tastes so good. It doesn’t matter what flavor (accept for coffee) or what topping you put on it, ice cream just tastes amazing.
Ice cream is used a lot too as a comfort food. If you’ve had a bad day at school or work you can rush home and find comfort by eating a bowl or two of ice cream. Ice cream really comes in handy when you need a little bit of comfort during a difficult time.
Just like ice cream is an awesome comfort food, the Bible can bring us comfort when we are facing difficulty. The Bible tells us that Jesus gives us peace.
Jesus gives us peace. Just like ice cream can bring us comfort when we’re upset, Jesus can bring us peace too. When tough times come, we can look to Jesus. He tells us we don’t have to be troubled or afraid. Jesus has not left us helpless and alone. We’ve got Him to walk life together with us.
So in the midst of tough times remember that you can look to Jesus for peace. Remember that He told you that He left us peace. We don’t have to live our lives afraid of what might happen. We can look to Jesus for peace and find comfort in Him!
Dear Lord, first we want to thank You for Ice Cream but more importantly we thank You for the comfort that You bring. In the Name of Jesus, Amen.
