“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." [Matt.11:28-30. Message Bible]
A few thoughts:
1. 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.
2. God’s will is for us to be … rested, living freely and lightly.
3. Our responsibility – come, get away, walk with Jesus, work with Jesus, watch, learn, and keep company with Him.
Jesus, we commit ourselves afresh to you. May we be all that you want us to be. Teach us the rythms of grace as we walk with you today. Amen.
