Friends in Christ Weekly Message
July 5, 2008

     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 11:28-30 (Message*)

We tend to work so hard at life. If we profess faith, often we work at some manmade scheme of religion. We can get tired and burnt out.

Christ offers us the Good News that it doesn't have to be this way. If we truly come to Him and walk with Him, He will show us how to live freely and lightly. We can “Learn the unforced rhythms of grace.” We will be living naturally in Christ, not some forced way that will wear us out.

Are you learning the unforced rhythms of grace from our true Teacher, Christ Jesus?
