“Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For my yoke is easy and my burden is light.” Matthew 11:28-30
Grace and peace be yours in abundance through the knowledge of God and of Jesus our Lord.(2Peter 1:2)
We sometimes don’t realize the peace comes through the knowing God and Jesus our Lord. We often look for knowledge of God but sometimes feel that we DON’T have the abundant peace in our hearts. If we have knowledge of God and abundant peace, I wonder what kind of life it will be like. I long to live in an abundant peace… I want to be able to say this blessing to others also….
“Greater love has no one than this, that he lay down his life for his friends(John 15:3).
I get challenged from this verse. I sometimes wonder if there is anyone in this world that I would be willing to die for. Of course, the people who comes closest are my wife and kids. The challenge is whether I can or am willing to die for others, even strangers. Yet there are many who are willing… Greater love is indeed my willingness to sacrifice…starting with very small things like giving my time and resources to the needy.
