2017 SENIOR ADULT RETREAT REGISTRATION

Real Rest

January 16   
Daily Reading – Genesis 33-34 / Matthew 11:20-30

WHAT GOD HAS SAID:

Matthew 11:28 Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.


WHAT I HAVE SEEN:

    It was very possible that Christ was speaking to the Jewish people who had been oppressed by the ceremonial and ritualistic laws of their religion. He was saying to them, embrace me as your Saviour, and rest from these burdensome legalistic manmade laws.

    At the same time, He is telling us the same thing. Many have searched for a truth in life and tried to find it in work, wealth, worldliness, and whatever might fill that emptiness inside. In John 14:6, it says Jesus is the Way, the Truth, and the Life. Once you find Jesus’ way is the truth of life you can rest from the constant search.


WHAT DO YOU SAY:

  Will it be His way of rest or yours of worry?
