Some Good News for Monday

"[Jesus declared] 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. For my yoke is easy and my burden is light.” (John 11:29-30)

The world, religion, society, our families, and even our own internal expectations place all sorts of demands on us. We're told to "Do this to be worthy, successful, happy, accepted." All these demands weigh us down like the yokes used on pack animals.

Jesus says, "Turn from all that weighs you down and be set free forever as you follow Me." Through Jesus, God gives us His righteousness. Jesus has met all the legitimate demands of God's moral law and covers all who believe in Him with His righteousness. In Him, we're accepted by God with nothing to prove and set free to be all that God made us to be. "There is now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus." (Romans 8:1)

That's what the Bible calls "gospel," good news! Turn to Jesus as He calls and it's yours...every single day.
