Seven Words Selected
COME UNTO ME ALL YE THAT LABOUR – Jesus was a workman who knew the challenge of training, the sweat of toil and the reward of a job well done. His clothes were not silken. His hands were not smooth. His countenance was not pale. He would encourage us to manifest the Kingdom in steadfast service, reliability, courtesy and good cheer. Let us not forget that He offers to be our yoke-fellow (Matthew 11).Consider the oxen, and then imagine being attached to the power and potential of Jesus. Will the job be accomplished? Will you present yourself honourably as His team-mate? Whatever the task our Partner also affords us rest. Note that the Perfect Man describes Himself as “meek and lowly”.
