With Jesus

February 13, 2022

“Take my yoke upon you and learn from me,
for I am gentle and humble in heart,
and you will find rest for your souls.
For my yoke is easy and my burden is light.”

from Luke 4:42-43


Scripture Luke Matthew 11:25-25

We often exhaust ourselves in pursuits and practices for which we were never intended. True rest, peace, and meaning are found once we "yoke" ourselves with Jesus.

“The Spirit of the Lord is upon me,
because he has anointed me
to bring good news to the poor.
