Just come

Posted: June 15, 2017 in Inspiration
Then Jesus said, “Come to me, all of you who are weary and carry heavy burdens, and I will give you rest.” (‭Matthew‬ ‭11‬:‭28‬ NLT)
A yoke is a heavy wooden harness that fits over the shoulders of an ox or oxen. It is attached to a piece of equipment the oxen are to pull. A person may be carrying heavy burdens of (1) sin, (2) excessive demands of religious leaders (23:4; Acts 15:10), (3) oppression and persecution, or (4) weariness in the search for God.
Jesus frees people from all these burdens. The rest that Jesus promises is love, healing, and peace with God, not the end of all labor. A relationship with God changes meaningless, wearisome toil into spiritual productivity and purpose.
“This is what the LORD says: “Stop at the crossroads and look around. Ask for the old, godly way, and walk in it. Travel its path, and you will find rest for your souls. But you reply, ‘No, that’s not the road we want!’” (‭Jeremiah‬ ‭6‬:‭16‬ NLT)
The right path for living is “the old, godly way” and has been marked out by God. But the people refused to take God’s path, going their own way instead. We face the same decision today—going God’s old but true way, or following a new path of our own choosing. Don’t be misled. The only way to find peace and “rest for your souls” is to walk on God’s path.(Life Applications Study Bible)
This is your invitation.
Read the passages carefully. This invitation is from Jesus Himself to all of us, and all of us that have accepted it should share it with our worlds. Just as I said last week, this is where true peace can be found, just accept it.
It will give your daily tasks meaning and that you do it to glorify God so that people may see and desire what you have. The selfless peace that you achieve through accepting you can now share.
If at any time you are not sure which path to choose, it’s the old way. You don’t need rocket science to figure it out. You don’t need to try to reinvent the wheel. It’s all here in the Good Old Book, the Bible.
“Dear Lord, will you reveal the Old truths to all people, Amen.”
