Matthew 11.28-30 (RSV)
Come to me, all who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you, and learn from me; for I am gentle and lowly in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light."
Christians are called to a different standard formed around the life of Jesus. By being obedient to his way, we are authorized to live in the kingdom as if it is fully present here and now. The Beatitudes in Matthew 5.1-12 describe blessedness in life as we know it, both as a gift and our response to that gift.
Our relationship of Jesus becomes evident when we share our blessings with others. When we share our blessings we are good stewards. Which of the these would you like to see more of in your life?
I’d love to hear your responses. Drop me a note or email or call. On Sunday, we will discover together the power of salt and light!
See you there!
Grace and Peace,
