TRYING TO REST – Today’s gospel is filled with “I need to” and “I should have”. We are set up to strive and are worn out doing religious exercises that profit nothing. We spend our time trying to stay safe and fall short of the “rest” that belongs to the people of God.
Peace and health are God’s will for us. Understanding why “trying is dying” and what Paul reveals in Romans 7 & 8, is essential in helping us understand how many Christians are living both saved and condemned at the same time. Knowing these truths will transform your life from one of confusion and condemnation to one of authority, assurance and rest.
