"Come to Me, all you who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest..."
~ from Matthew 11:28-30 (NKJV)
We tend to see faith as passive. After all, we receive Jesus as a gift. Works cannot earn salvation. His strength is manifest in our weakness.
But Jesus calls us to active faith. He comes to us not once but each day with an invitation: "Come to Me." He never intends to leave us where He finds us, but for us to walk with Him.
Whether we accept or decline, we cannot remain the same. In acceptance is peace. In declining, we will forever be uneasy, left with the question, "what if?"
"No Jesus, no peace.
Know Jesus, know peace."
