Be Renewed

Rest_bench_beach

Matthew 11:28

“Come to me, all you who labor and are burdened, and I will give you rest.”

Jesus counters the heavy rules and regulations of the scribes and Pharisees (religious leaders) with His unconditional love. There were no prerequisites or set of conditions you had to fulfill…for you to come to Jesus. His message was to ‘come as you are.’ Life is not about you and I passing some test in order for God to like us. God already loves us infinitely. Jesus showed us this by the way He lived and by the way He died…responding throughout the journey with love, mercy, forgiveness and compassion…even when that response wasn’t merited. Did you know that you are the beloved son/daughter of God? Allow this fact to sink into your heart. There is nothing you have done or can do to change this! Find rest in the Presence of your Loving Creator.
