RUN/REST Day 28
God’s desire is that we run towards a life better than ordinary.
📖 𝗥𝗘𝗔𝗗: John 10:10
When Jesus came on the scene he invited people to a life of rest. He said that following him and obeying him wouldn’t be a burden, a heavy responsibility, or a list of tasks they could never complete. It wouldn’t involve living for someone else’s approval. Instead, it would mean living out of an understanding that they have God’s approval. What do you think Jesus meant when he said, “my purpose is to give them a rich and satisfying life?”
Does following Jesus ever feel like it’s a list of tasks that you have to check off? If it does, ask yourself why it feels that way. Are you trying to earn God’s approval? God’s approval is a gift. We cannot earn it. And trying to won’t lead to the rich and satisfying life Jesus talked about.
Write out a prayer or silently pray asking Jesus to show you what the rich and satisfying life looks like.
