///// SUNESIS OF CHRIST /////
Day 357| December 22, 2020 | Apostle Gideon C Boateng
"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. 29 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. 30 Keep company with me and you'll learn to live freely and lightly."
Matt 11:28-30 (TMB)
The King James Version says it this way; Matt 11:29 “Take My yoke upon you and learn from Me…” Many have received the Lord Jesus but not many have learnt from Him. This is the reason the words of the Lord Jesus seems untrue to many today. If "my yoke is easy and my burden is light" sounds unreal to you then you have not learnt much from Jesus because His yoke is truly easy and His burden is truly light. Whenever your experience collides with the Word of the Lord know that you are doing something wrong. Don’t go with the mantra that ‘Christianity is difficult’ when the Lord had said it is easy and light.
Christianity is an invitation to a life of rest. It is an invitation to a glorious life of liberty where we are delivered from the evils of this world (Gal 1:4). We have rest from sin, the effects of sin, sickness, condemnation, demonic oppression, demonic obsession, demonic possession, poverty etc. (Isaiah 53:1-10, 2 Cor 8:9).
Now this doesn’t mean the child of God will not be tempted in these things. That is the reason you need to learn of Christ to put the devil where he belongs just as the master did when the devil showed up in His life. Learning of Christ is the reason for this devotional; it is about maintaining the mindset Christ had when He was on earth. It is rather unfortunate when you listen to many Christians talk today; their speech shows they have not so learnt of Christ because their utterances portray a different mindset to that of Christ.
If you are really having a hard time in life or in an area of your life, it is time to pause and start paying serious attention to the Word of God. Invest a great amount of time reading and studying Jesus and you will be amazed at how your life will turn out in few days. Don’t assume you know, get to the Word of God and transform your life. You are called to a life of rest in Christ don’t settle for anything less. For persecution they are bread for us, the master had them and He said we will have them because it is a key proof that we are on the right path.
// 🗣SAY BY FAITH
I am in Christ and have dropped every life of struggle. I enjoy the rest of God in Christ reserved for me fully. I don’t allow the devil and his cohorts any foothold in my life!
