Put the JOY back in Scripture

So many armchair, Monday morning quarterback preachers on Facebook; so many prophets, so many apostles…but few who know and understand the true Word OF God. There are no twists and turns, just the narrow way.

How many times have all of us read and re-read scripture but one day it just JUMPS at you? I don’t know about you, but that’s the exciting part of reading this Glorious Word! DO your due diligence. Actually, that’s the fun part of reading scripture! Dig, dig, and dig some more! The Bible is a treasure that when you dig deeper, it gets richer!

Matthew 11:28 says: “v28 Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. v29 Take my yoke upon you, and learn of me; for I am meek and lowly in heart: and ye shall find rest unto your souls. v30 For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light.”

AND learn of ME! Oh, Jesus my JOY! You open this word to my heart more and more! I don’t know about you, but I’ve read that scripture in Matthew zillions of times and never noticed those four little words before: AND learn of ME!

Jesus wants us to rely upon Him, to trust Him, to love Him…and all He asks is that we LEARN of Him.
