Discussion for Matthew 11

    When one is saved from his sins, he/she has a rest everyday in the Holy Ghost from the 'toil' our former life of sin put us through. The H.G. gives a continual daily rest in Jesus. "This is the rest wherewith ye shall cause the weary to rest", Isa. 28:12, Heb. 4:10-11.

    Some are thankful for the Sabbath days. A day to rest, worship, not work, as the Jews, who are prospering in the love of The Lord. God's people in the land of God's Holy City. May we all study and understand the blessings of The Sabbath Days.

    Accepting Jesus should not be hard. We must honor him and follow his word. Love the people that are around you. Treat them as you wish to be treated. Read God's word daily so that you can see how a true child of God should live. We live in the world but we are not a part of it. Follow the law of the land as much as possible. Do not let the law of the land interfere with how you should serve God. God is good. Pray daily and throughout the day for guidance. Do the best that you can daily. His yoke is easy.
  • Wayne
    Christians, those who are born again, washed in the blood of Jesus, by faith alone, are the temples of the Lord.
