“Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest.
Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls.
For my yoke is easy and my burden is light.”Leave a Comment

This is a wonderful verse if people understand He did it all, it is finished. Yet I see so many who still try to work their way to heaven. The Apostle Paul tells us our work is a manifestation, a reasonable duty in grateful survice to our Lord, not a way to get to heaven. Works if done with the right heart and motive do yeild rewards in heaven, yet that should not be our focus. I once fell into that thinking and can tell you it is a burden. To let God and allow God to choose the works is so much freeing. God bless your day.

Aaaaaamen!! Sabbath rest…. He is so faithful to give us what we need.
A soft genuine word statement can make a greater impact on a person bring glory to God. Than a big production of lip service that unintentionally belittles a person and brings glory to yourself.
Thank you for your daily Scriptures, they are a great source of encouragement.
