Tired or rested?

I’ve been chewing on the message that Nick brought us on Sunday, so much there was helpful. One of the things that we have looked at before is the idea that we are too tired to really live for Jesus.

I was pondering this morning the account of Jesus and the woman at the well in John 4. Jesus’ disciples came and told Jesus to eat, and He replied by saying

“I have food to eat that you know nothing about… My food is to do the will of Him who sent me.” (John 4v32-34)

Jesus was saying that rather than being weak and tired, doing the work of God was sustaining Him. It reminded me of Proverbs 11v25:

“Whoever brings blessing will be enriched, and one who waters (others) will himself be watered.”

In other words, God has provided a kind of rest and refreshment of heart and soul that only comes through our working for Him by serving others! I love the kingdom of God—it turns everything on its head!

Have a great day with the Lord in your heart.
