My Body / God's Temple


Do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your minds, so that you may discern what is the will of God—what is good and acceptable and perfect. Romans 12:2

I recently purchased my first new car. I quickly learned about the stressful experience that is car shopping. I spent weeks researching, yet I was still completely unsure if I was getting a good deal on a car or fair rates on a loan. During this time of deliberation (and for a while after I bought the car), I was consumed with the stress of making what felt like a monumental decision. Last week in his sermon about practicing mental health, Pastor Caleb reminded us to “stop turning to temporary thing or temporary people for eternal peace.” Throughout our lives we will face many big decisions, some will feel more monumental than others. But as Pastor Caleb reminded us, not all of them offer us the eternal peace that Christ does. While we may not be able to completely stop worrying about them, it is important to prioritize what furthers our call as Christians over what will inevitably fade away. We move, trade one car for another, pay off old loans and take out new ones, but Christ’s love remains. In the midst of life’s chaos, he is our peace. Let us remember this as we work to be Fit for Life by prioritizing what in life matters. Pastor Caitlyn
