Learn of Me or Despair
"Come unto Me all ye that labor and are heavy laden and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you and learn of Me , for I am meek and lowly at heart and you shall find rest unto your souls."
There seems to be so much around us to drive us to despair and anxiety. On top of that there is plenty within us to do the same. So what do we do? It's obvious we don't look out to the world around us because it surely has no answer. Then many say, "Well, I'll be a better person", they look within themselves but they soon also find, There is not much hope in me.
Jesus says, "Hey you, Yes you, Come to me. Come to me."
"Quit looking at the world, quit looking inside yourself and come to Me."
"Come and learn of Me. Learn what I have to say. Let me teach you. Turn from sin. Let the Holy Spirit within. I'll forgive you. Then I will teach you."
Will you know it all in one day? No. One year? No. Yet stay with Him and He will continually teach you His ways.
Sometimes this is "on the job training", sometimes it is trial and error. We've all made mistakes but He keeps on teaching us. Through staying in the school of Christ, we find rest for our souls, and peace within. A peace not from our effort but by staying in the way with Christ.
Why not have our last despair over this world, our last despair over our selves, and come learn of Christ today. And there we will find peace for our souls!
May God bless you today!
