What is the second greatest order? If you’re a believer, a student of Scripture, it’s not impossible that you said something like “Adore your neighbor as yourself.” In the event that you did, you’d be correct – almost.
Jesus himself said, “Adore the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with your entire mind. This is actually the greatest and very first commandment. And this was Jesus’ response to the question, “Which is the greatest commandment in Regulations?” – referring, to the Law of Moses, naturally.
People come to me, Pastor Chris, as head of Christ Embassy and have questions about the most important commandment. Until Jesus came, the 2nd greatest command as mentioned in the Old Testament (Leviticus 19) was wholly acceptable. In reality, I presume it was the best we could hope for in terms of loving another human being.
But throw into the mix the reality that occasionally we don’t even love ourselves. Sometimes we are able to actually struggle to like what we are, definitely, and who we are what we do. Just how can we be expected to love others if we do learn how to love ourselves, as we love ourselves? There are days when many of us fight only to be pleasant to ourselves. So how can we love better? The answer is given by Jesus.
One of our culture’s biggest troubles is busyness. It contributes to everything from heart disease to nourishment that is poor to alienation in our relationships.
What about you? Are you the postal worker, oppressed with the monotony of an unending routine? Does one feel overworked with no sense of accomplishment? Are you really bearing the anxiety and responsibility that you are put on by others? Are you currently experiencing burn out?
A long record of amateurs and experts are willing to give advice. How will you distinguish between anyone who is merely guessing and the person who actually understands what’ll allow you to?
Before you go to anyone else, please consider Jesus’ invitation. This gracious invitation comes from God’s Son who “has been given power over everything” (Matthew 11:27 The Book). We discovered homepage by searching newspapers. “I ‘ll cause one to rest (I’ll ease and relieve and refresh your souls).” This is a release of God’s power to work in you. It truly is God lifting the pressure, refreshing, and rejuvenating.
Jesus clarified that “Everyone who sins is a slave of sin” (John 8:34 The Book). Unforgiven and unconfessed sins are a heavy burden that Jesus can take away.
Coming to Jesus is simplify. Simply call out to him.”Jesus, I want your help. Please forgive my sins, take my frustration away, and give me your rest.”
Jesus offers the way to maintain the remainder he gives. Navigating To small blue arrow likely provides cautions you can tell your family friend. Listen, “Get my yoke upon you. I want to instruct you because I ‘m humble and gentle, and you are going to discover rest for the souls” (Matthew 11:29 The Book).
In that day walk in his footsteps and the yoke of another meant to come under that person’s leadership. Jesus was a meek and gentle teacher. The yoke, what Jesus needs and teaches, is great, useful and wholesome. Never hard, unpleasant, sharp and pressing, but comfortable, nice and gracious! (Amplified Bible) The burden he gives is light and simple to take.
Should you want to be free, accept Jesus’ amazing offer of rest..Pastor Chris
