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).
Let me tell you why you are here. You’re here to be salt-seasoning that brings out the God flavors of this earth…Here’s another way to put it: You’re here to be light, bringing out the God-colors in the world. God is not a secret to be kept. We’re going public with this, as public as a city on a hill……shine! Keep open house; be generous with your lives. By opening up to others, you’ll prompt people to open up with God, this generous Father in heaven. (Matthew 5:13-16)
When we can rest in the unforced rhythm of His grace, His radiance will shine and heal us so that we can live freely and lightly. This freedom provides the strength to “let our light shine” and be that “city on the hill”.
We Are (Kare Jobe)
