Burned out on religion?
Come to me.
Get away with me and you'll recover your life.
I'll show you how to take a real rest.
Walk with me and work with me - watch how I do it.
Learn the unforced rhythms of grace.
I won't lay anything heavy or ill-fitting on you.
Keep company with me and you'll learn to live freely and lightly."
[Jesus - Matthew 11:28-30. Message Bible]
This teaching from Jesus contains some amazing promises and it gives us insight into what God desires for our lives.
God’s will is not for us to be … tired, worn out or burned out. He doesn’t want us carrying anything heavy or ill-fitting.
God’s will is for us to be … rested, living freely and lightly, experiencing life as an unforced rhythm of gace.
Our responsibility – come to Jesus, take time to get away, walk with Jesus, work with Jesus, watch Him, learn from Him, and keep company with Him.
What are you waiting for?
