P1060993"Are you tired?

Worn out?

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?
