Take Your Coat Off

Look here is the point. We need Jesus. Take a load off and relax already. “Come to Me…and you will have rest for your soul”-Jesus. This is not a lazy rest where we just loaf around. This is a rest from religious peerformance (I meant to put two “e’s” in “performance”). When people get stuck on obedience and religious works they tend to “spiritual pride”. I’d rather be a sinner. And though I personally think we ALL tend to spiritual pride I believe there is one good way to lessen it a little. That way is to just rest in Christ.

For further study:

Matthew 11:28-30

28Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.

29Take my yoke upon you, and learn of me; for I am meek and lowly in heart: and ye shall find rest unto your souls.

30For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light.

Hebrews 4:3-10

3For we who have believed enter that rest, just as He has said,
“AS I SWORE IN MY WRATH,
THEY SHALL NOT ENTER MY REST,”
although His works were finished from the foundation of the world.

4For He has said somewhere concerning the seventh day: “AND GOD RESTED ON THE SEVENTH DAY FROM ALL HIS WORKS”;

5and again in this passage, “THEY SHALL NOT ENTER MY REST.”

6Therefore, since it remains for some to enter it, and those who formerly had good news preached to them failed to enter because of disobedience,

7He again fixes a certain day, “Today,” saying through David after so long a time just as has been said before,
“TODAY IF YOU HEAR HIS VOICE,
DO NOT HARDEN YOUR HEARTS.”

8For if Joshua had given them rest, He would not have spoken of another day after that.

9So there remains a Sabbath rest for the people of God.

10For the one who has entered His rest has himself also rested from his works, as God did from His.

So take a load off and have a happy sabbath………every day =D
