Message by Elisabeth Elliot
By JASMIN HOWELL
The beginning of a year feels like a time to amp up productivity, tackle projects, meet goals … all good things. But how do we find truly refreshing rest so that we can do all of those things with an even deeper joy and purpose, not just human ambition? In this audio message, Elisabeth Elliot shares a biblical version of rest found in Matthew 11:28-29, which says, “Come to Me, all you who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Take My yoke upon you and learn from Me, for I am gentle and lowly in heart, and you will find rest for your souls.” She explains how rest found in Christ comes through a different mode than what you or I might expect. We first must come to Christ, then we must bend our necks to receive His yoke, and then we must take time to learn from Him, and in doing these things, we can find true rest for our souls, even amidst our ongoing responsibilities, projects and tasks. This message was truly refreshing!
