In Matthew 11:20-24 Jesus talks and denounces the cities which most of His miracles had been performed in and they didn’t repent. What are we as a nation in for?? We as a nation say it’s okay to abort or kill babies because the would be parent/parents want to pursue their career or they just aren’t ready for children. We as a nation are supposed to say that it is okay for gay couple to be married? We have strayed o far from the path of our beginning that judgment is going to be poured out on us, too.
We want to be entertained. We don’t want to be bothered with Jesus. Why?
Because we think that we aren’t going to get to do all of the fun stuff.
But the God that I serve means so much more to me than all of the supposedly fun stuff that I’m “missing out on.”
The cares of this world and the pleasures of this world are not worth turning my back on God, anymore. It took me some years to come to the realization that God is enough for me but now that I’m there I wouldn’t trade the journey for anything.
Also, in Matthew 11:28-30 Jesus tells us that He will give us rest if we will take His yoke upon us and learn from Him for He is gentle and humble in heart. Jesus is the example for us so I think that is the way Jesus wants for us to be. His yoke is easy and His burden is light. I have learned that Jesus’ yoke is easy and His burden is light and that we, as followers of Christ, enjoy.
The world seeks all of the things that Jesus promises His followers through worldly ways but I know that when I was lost and I thought, “If I just had this or that then I would be happy.” But once I got whatever “it” happened to be then I learned that the dream of having what I wanted was always better than the reality and that worldly things are never enough.
Jesus is more than enough. Jesus is the only One that can give us peace and lasting happiness.
