Pretty simple instruction from Jesus in response to His question … “burned out on religion?” Yes, indeedy I am … especially in myself!
“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 MSG
Keep company with Me … watch how I do it.
I’m saying, “I’m gonna be paying closer attention to “watch how You do it”. While I’m reading my Bible, I’m gonna pay more attention to “how you do it”. When I’m praying, I’m gonna pay more attention, listening to “how You do it”. Before I SAY anything, I’m gonna be stopping to see if this is “how You do it”. Before I DO something, I’m gonna stop to see if this is “how You do it”. I ask You now for all the Mercy and overflowing Grace to take me to a new level of watching “how You do it”. I need it. I take it. I have it. I thank You, and I forgive, so Mercifully, as You’ve forgiven me. I love you. All in Jesus name.”
