Burned out on religion?

I snagged this restful thought today from Livingsword. More than just a thought, actually. It's the words of Jesus as conveyed by The Message in Matthew 11:28-30.

"Are you tired? Worn out? Burned out on religion? Come to me. Get away with me and you'll recover your life. I'll show you how to take a real rest. Walk with me and work with me — watch how I do it. Learn the unforced rhythms of grace. I won't lay anything heavy or ill-fitting on you. Keep company with me and you'll learn to live freely and lightly."


  1. The words “unforced rhythms of grace” stirs the soul I done is willing to accept the rest that Jesus presents. You have to be willing to accept that perhaps you having been living a life of religion and not a life of relationship with Jesus.

  2. Amen to that. Grace means so much more to the one who's been under the heavy burden of religion.
