Jesus came to bring rest from stress… but only to those who actively “seek” him.
Knowing Jesus and seeking Jesus, are two different things.
We seek Jesus by turning the focus of our mind towards him. Prayer, reading the Bible or a devotion, and listening to Christian music are all ways to seek him.
Knowing Jesus and seeking Jesus are two different things.
And the cool thing? When we do an act that focuses our mind towards Jesus, our eyes meet his and rest from stress is the result.
Jesus said “If you seek me out, you who are weary and burdened will be given rest. Attach yourself to me and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart. If you do this you will find rest for your souls. For my way is easy and not heavy, my way will lighten your load.” (Matthew 11:28-30)
