Come to Me, all you who labor and are heavy-laden and overburdened, and I will cause you to rest. [I will ease and relieve and refresh your souls.]
When we become so burned out, heavy-laden, and overburdened that we feel we are unable to take it anymore, what are we to do? Jesus said, Come to Me.... But what are we to do when we come to Him? We are to come to Him to receive!
If we ask and ask and keep on asking and never receive, then we become frustrated. Jesus wants us to have joy.
One of the major reasons we do not receive is that what has been provided for us is free, and we keep trying to do something to earn it. Jesus has already paid the price.
The New Covenant is according to grace. It is based on the goodness of God and the work Jesus has already accomplished—not on our merit or works.
To get is "to acquire as a result of action or effort." To receive is "to acquire or take (something given, offered, or transmitted)...." When we get something, we obtain it by struggle or effort. When we receive something, we obtain it by acting as a receptacle and taking in what someone else is offering.
Receive what Jesus is pouring out. Come into His presence and drink of His forgiveness, His love, His mercy and grace.
Everything you need is available—start receiving!
Enter into God's rest and receive what has already been poured out. You will be rested, refreshed, revived, restored, and refilled.
