know me firsthand

From Peterson’s The Message, “They will no longer go around setting up schools to teach each other about God. They’ll know me firsthand … ”

Our pastor reminded us today … from Matthew 11, “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.”  Jesus says … not learn “about” me … but learn “from” me.

He invites us to submit to the yoke … to follow his lead … to learn from him walking in step with him … pulling in the same direction … working the same ground … finding rest for our souls in surrender.
