Come to Me, all you who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Take My yoke upon you and learn from Me

-Matthew 11:28 (NKJV)

Thoughts on Today’s Verse

There is an invitation from Jesus to come to Him. No need to stand a far off because Christ asks you to come close. It’s an invitation to the burdened ones, to come. Note the rest offered is something He “gives”, as it is a rest that can’t be earned; it is given because it is of grace. Would you learn of Him today, learn the unforced rhythms of grace.

My Prayer

Dear Father, thank You that we can come close to You, as the barrier of sin has been removed. Thank You that You give us real rest, and real peace, and that in the midst of any storm Your peace remains. Please teach us today more about Christ, we want to learn of Him, more of His unsearchable riches. Thank You in Jesus in name
