Feeling the Pressure?
Feeling the pressure. You know, it's a familiar phrase and a familiar experience. But have you felt the pressure in living the Christian life? Have you ever felt great pressure to make sure your walk matches your talk? Have you ever wilted under the pressure … and then beat yourself up mercilessly for failing? Well, it just might be that you’re trying too hard to be the perfect child, the perfect spouse, or parent, or boss, or employee, or pastor or deacon. Jesus said in Matthew 11:28, “Come to me all who are weary and heavy-laden, and I will give you rest.” Your only real job in life is to present yourself to the Lord as an empty vessel for Him to fill. When you simply yield yourself to Jesus and let Him who lives in you, live through you, you’ll find your rest. Now that’s real hope.
