Tired

 

I am so tired. My wife is tired. My sister and nephews are tired. Everyone I work with is tired.

The world is a tired and tiring place. Sin has done this to us and we’ve done it to ourselves by buying into lies that we have to be perfect. Lies that we have to chase success. Lies that we have to worry. Lies that we have to be better and better every day in every way.

God of grace, pour out your grace on us today so that we rest in the reality that we don’t have to be anything we aren’t. Remove the illusion from our hearts that we have to conform to the world’s idea of success and make our hearts restless until they find their rest in you.

The gospel is for those who are tired of trying to get the world to redeem them.

Question: How do you find rest in the good news of the gospel?
