The Invitation

How many invitations do you receive in a year? 
Sporting events
Birthday parties 
Christmas parties 
Weddings 
Baby showers 

I'm sure you appreciate all of the invitations that you receive. If you were not liked and wanted you would not receive them. 

But, as good as that is, we both know that each invitation is going to require something from you...time and/or money. There are times that both are in short supply and you would just as soon not to get any invitations.

Let me remind you of an invitation that is found in scripture that does not require time nor money.

Come to me, all 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. For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light." (Matthew 11:28-30 ESV)

There is no cost 
It is for the tired and hurting 
Sweet rest awaits us

I appreciate all of the invitations I’ve received over my many years in ministry, but being an introvert at heart, I was usually exhausted after each one. It is really good to have an invitation that refreshes instead of exhausting.
