Unforced Rhythms of Grace

By May 22, 2014Reflections

Friends, as we experiment with our first “rule of life” this week, remember our central text…  

—–
“Are you tired? Worn out? Burned out on religion? Come to me. Get away with me and you’ll recover your life. I’ll show you how to take a real rest. Walk with me and work with me – watch how I do it. Learn the unforced rhythms of grace. I won’t lay anything heavy or ill-fitting on you. Keep company with me and you’ll learn to live freely and lightly.”  Matthew 11:28-30 (MSG)

Our rule of life is simply a way to “walk with Jesus, work with Jesus, and watch how He does it.”  We are humbly creating space for God to sweep us into the streams of what God is already doing…in us and in the world.  Amen.  We have an important role to play in following Christ’s lead, but as we do, we discover that God is the one doing all the work!  For these are the unforced rhythms of Grace.

Sarah Bessey recently reflected on this passage.  It’s wonderful.  May her words keep us grounded this week in Jesus’ beautiful invitation – learning to live freely and lightly…
