Refreshing Work



Come to me, all who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you, and learn from me, for I am gentle and lowly in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light.? MT 11.28-30

“Before you accept Jesus’ offer to find rest, read the invitation closely. Jesus does not invite worn-out people to take a nap. Nor does he suggest that if we will chant a one-time prayer, refreshment will be granted automatically. No; Jesus says to assume his yoke and learn from him. Jesus invites those who need rest to come work with him.” — Chris Brauns

A yoke suggests work.? Jesus yokes us to himself and invites us to join him in his work.? As we walk and work with him, he refreshes and reinvigorates us.

Question: How does Jesus refresh you in his work?
