Matthew 11:28-29a Come to me, all you that are weary and are carrying heavy burdens, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you, and learn from me.
Even though I believe that Jesus is—as Matthew says—the new Moses, the new law, and the Wisdom of God incarnate, I often find myself looking around for an easier course of study. I am more apt to wear myself out following the self-help books of the ambitious and well-regarded than to follow in the footsteps of the gentle, humble, and often-despised man from Galilee. God offers rest to those who walk in Jesus’ rigorous way of mercy and humility.
Giving Back: Help the sick, the shut-in, and the needy to rest in God’s words of unconditional love. Give a gift to Forward Movement today.
