Withdrawing To Rest
by Ministry Support on May 24th, 2021
Jesus often withdrew to lonely places and prayed. (Luke 5:16) We’ve been talking a lot the last few days about Matthew chapter 11 and how Jesus says, if those of you who are weak and burdened would come to Him rather than try to do it all yourselves, then He would give you rest. I like that because Jesus is affirming rest as a sacred value.   That’s significant in this capitalistic, post-industria...  Read More

Let Jesus Set The Pace
by Ministry Support on May 22nd, 2021
Cast your burden on the LORD, and he will sustain you; he will never permit the righteous to be moved. (Psalm 55:22) When Jesus uses this metaphor of a yoke in Matthew chapter 11, he says, “take my yoke upon you…for my yoke is easy and my burden is light.” Just in case you’re not familiar, let me explain how a yoke works. A yoke is a wooden beam that attaches two farm animals together. The purpose...  Read More

Know Your Limits
by Ministry Support on May 21st, 2021
Moses’ father-in-law replied, “What you are doing is not good. You and these people who come to you will only wear yourselves out. The work is too heavy for you; you cannot handle it alone. (Exodus 18:17-18) Have you ever been riding in the car with someone, and it was clear that they were lost, but they wouldn’t pull over and ask for directions because they didn’t want to admit they didn’t know w...  Read More

The Struggle To Keep Up
by Ministry Support on May 20th, 2021
Let your eyes look straight ahead; fix your gaze directly before you. Give careful thought to the paths for your feet and be steadfast in all your ways. Do not turn to the right or the left; keep your foot from evil. (Proverbs 4:25-27) Recently, I was at the gym doing some bench presses, and there were these guys next to me lifting too. As I watched them, I thought to myself, “Hey, these guys are ...  Read More

by Ministry Support on May 19th, 2021
Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. (Matthew 11:28-29) Yesterday we talked about recognizing the signs of burnout, the signs that you’re running on empty. Several people in the Bible show us how important it is to recognize those signs: David, J...  Read More

Reignite Your Light
by Ministry Support on May 17th, 2021
In the same way, let your light shine before others, that they may see your good deeds and glorify your Father in heaven. (Matthew 5:16) I read about this archaeologist who hired some Inca tribesmen to lead him to an archaeological site deep in the mountains in the late 19th century. After they had been moving for some time, the tribesmen stopped and insisted they should go no further. The archaeo...  Read More

How To Beat Burnout
by Ministry Support on May 16th, 2021
Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. (Matthew 11:28) Do you know what it’s like to be burnt out? To feel as if you are constantly on the go and constantly on the move so much that you feel drained, exhausted, and as if you are running on an empty tank. Your drive is gone, your get up and go has gotten up and gone, there’s no more pep in your step, no more glide...  Read More
