Get away with me and you’ll recover your life
“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.” Matthew 11:29-30 The Message (MSG)
If we do our work in yoke with him, we will find fulfillment and experience good relationships with God and people.* When God gave work to Adam in the Garden of Eden, the work was easy and the burden light under God’s authority.
Jesus invites us to work in yoke with him with the promise of rest for our souls.
