“Come to me, all of you who are weary and heavy laden, and I will give you rest.”

Jesus in Matthew 11:28

Isn’t it curious that for as many of us who need rest for our weary souls, we also sometimes struggle to actually slow down and rest? It can feel like guilt or like you’re doing something wrong.

Truth is: Rest is a gift, and it’s also command.

It’s an invitation from Holy God that goes beyond just meeting our physical needs for rest; but our spiritual needs as well.

The invitation to rest in Jesus brings us a freedom from performance, condemnation, and the need to act in peace. On the other side of that are so many beautiful gifts of the Holy Spirit.

The Lord Jesus Himself is our Sabbath rest. We never have to work for striving to please God ever again. We never have to work for pleasing Him. Because once we accept Jesus, once we allow ourselves to rest in Him, once we allow ourselves

In this episode, you will learn the following:

1. Jesus is our Sabbath rest, and we never have to work for His approval again.
2. Pride will keep us from taking the good gifts that God has for us.
3. The importance of humility

Gracious Father, we just love you. I thank you for this time. I pray for the listener today that you would just bless this listener, this one, this daughter. Bless them, Lord, with your sweet presence Bless them with your kindness, bless them with your grace, bless them with your love and give them ears to hear what the spirit of the Lord is saying. Or make our heart soft before you remove anything that would stand in the way of us hearing you, anything that would stand in the way of our relationship with you, anything that has exalted itself above the knowledge of you.
