Come to me, all you who labor and are burdened.

"Let the peace of Christ contol your hearts;
let the word of Christ dwell in you richly."  (Colossians 3: 15, 16 RM)

Where do you need peace in your life today?  Health, Family, Money, Job, Possessions, Food, Future?  If the word of God dwells richly in you, you will know the source of true peace.

The wedding guests do not mourn as long as the bridegroom is with them.

"People do not put new wine into old wineskins."  (Matthew 9: 17 NABRE)

Have you tasted the new wine of the Holy Spirit?   New wine, fresh skins!

Be surprised by Mercy!

“Why does your teacher eat with tax collectors and sinners?”  (Matthew 9: 11 NIV)

Why is your pastor so different from other pastors we know? Why is he so and so? Why does he do this and that?  Allow yourself to be surprised by Mercy.  "I desire mercy, not sacrifice."  (Matthew 9: 13)

The ordinances of Lord are more precious than gold.

"The law of the Lord is perfect (flawless), restoring and refreshing the soul;
The statutes of the Lord are reliable and trustworthy, making wise the simple."  (Psalm 19: 7 AMP)

Be a student of the word.  Meditate on it.  Share the word with family, friends and colleagues.  Pray the word.  You will see how rich your reward will be.

The Lord stood by us and gave us strength so that we can crush the gates of hell.

"And so I say to you, you are Peter, and upon this rock I will build my church,  and the gates of the netherworld shall not prevail against it."  (Matthew 16: 18 NABRE)

We are Christ's soldiers.  Through the power of Jesus, we will ram down the gates of hell and all demonic strongholds.

On the solemn feast of Saints Peter and Paul, we wish a happy feast day to pillars and foundation of the Church.

At dawn I bring my plea expectantly before You.

"And the disciples went and woke Him, saying, “Lord, save us, we are going to die!”   He said to them, “Why are you afraid, you men of little faith?” Then He got up and rebuked the winds and the sea, and there was [at once] a great and wonderful calm [a perfect peacefulness]."  (Matthew 8: 25 - 26 AMP)

Are you swamped by one trial after another?  Cry out to Jesus in expectant faith.  He is close to you.  He will help you.

When the cost of discipleship becomes painful, focus on Jesus and cling to Him.

"Then one of the teachers of religious law said to him, “Teacher, I will follow you wherever you go.”

But Jesus replied, “Foxes have dens to live in, and birds have nests, but the Son of Man  has no place even to lay his head.” (Matthew 8: 19 - 20 NLT)

Will you quit if the cost of discipleship becomes unbearable?  Jesus had no apartment or home.  He did not have a servant or income.

Lord, I am afraid.  Help me to trust You Jesus.
