The Greatest Invitation

The greatest invitation ever is one that is extended to everyone who would receive it. This invitation offers us rest. Aren’t you tired of the rat race? Aren’t you tired of feeling as if you never measure up? Well, we won’t ever measure up, but there is one who can make us measure up, make us whole again; one who can make us new.

With him, we get a new life, a life that will transcend this life. His invitation:

“Come to to me, all who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. 29 Take my yoke upon you, and learn from me, for I am gently and lowly in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. 30 For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light.” Matthew 11:28-30 ESV

How about it? The invitation is from Jesus Christ himself, who is the Way, the Truth, and the Life. No one will enter this rest but through him. John 14:6
