Happy Labor Day!

Matthew 11 28 Labor Day

Verse of the Day:  Matthew 11:28

Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest.

Throughout the Bible there are verses that encourage us to be diligent workers and there are also verses that say we need to rest, even God rested on the seventh day. Whether you are physically, emotionally or spiritually exhausted and burdened Jesus is inviting you and encouraging you to come to Him to find rest, peace, comfort, happiness and salvation. Believe in Jesus Christ, trust in Him and He will give you rest for your body, mind for your soul.

Set Free

Galatians 5 1

 Verse of the Day:  Galatians 5:1

It is for freedom that Christ has set us free. Stand firm, then, and do not let yourselves be burdened again by a yoke of slavery.

Jesus died on the cross for you so that you could be freed from sin and be made right with God. When you accept Jesus into your life you are freed from a life of sin. You are set free from the chains that bind you including the control, guilt and shame that sin has over you. There is power in the name of Jesus to break every chain that tries to restrain you and keep you living in a life of sin. When you are born again you become a new creation with a new way of thinking. You are given a second chance to be who God created you to be. Stand firm in your faith now and don’t go back to whatever sin God has already freed you from. You have the freedom to boldly come before the throne of grace and the power to be victorious!

Gentle and Humble

Matthew 11 29

Verse of the Day:  Matthew 11:29

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.

If you’re feeling burdened, troubled, angry, out of control or your life is in turmoil turn to Jesus, He is the answer. Jesus is inviting you to take His yoke. In other words, humbly surrender to God’s will, be obedient to His Word and let Him guide and direct your life. Jesus was a great example of what it is to be gentle and humble. Gentleness = kind, mild in temperament; Humbleness = respectful, showing a modest estimate of one’s own importance. Follow the example of Jesus Christ, learn from Him and you will find rest for your soul.
