We we created to have a relationship with God. God wants to have a relationship with us. He wants to share his love for us through his son, Jesus. The text today Matthew 11:27-30 from the Message Bible sums it up nicely.
Matthew 11:27-30 The Message (MSG)
27 Jesus resumed talking to the people, but now tenderly. “The Father has given me all these things to do and say. This is a unique Father-Son operation, coming out of Father and Son intimacies and knowledge. No one knows the Son the way the Father does, nor the Father the way the Son does. But I’m not keeping it to myself; I’m ready to go over it line by line with anyone willing to listen.
28-30 “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.”
He is asking us to come with him and take rest. Walk with him and he will show us how to live freely!
Bless God, we are free in Christ Jesus!
