“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.” (11:28-30)
Close your eyes and imagine yourself walking through this world.
Are you bent over, carrying the burden of shame, guilt, mantles of sin? Or are you upright, dressed in His Armor, gliding across the path in His Sonshine, as a dancer on the stage?
"I won’t lay anything heavy or ill-fitting on you."
His Armor - perfectly fitting. Unlike the Armor of old which could weigh up to 150 pounds, His armor is light and perfectly tailored. Perfectly tailored to meet your needs. For anything and all things you will come up against. An Armor which is given to you by Him. Our Christ. Our Savior, who has gone before us, conquering sin. Our ABBA. Our Leader, who goes before us, directing our steps. The Holy Spirit living within and about us. The same Power that raised our Savior from the grave. His Word equipping us with The Truth. His Family. Surrounding us and walking in unity.
"Keep company with Me and you’ll learn to live freely and lightly."
Keep company with Him. Not just sometimes, but all times. In all ways. In all places. Keep company with Him.
Close your eyes and picture where it is you live.
Is it in the darkness of sin? Or is it in His Light? His all powerful Light which cast out all darkness.
