Working from a place of rest

Jesus is not only promising rest as in Matthew 11: 28 - 29 that says, ‘Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls.’ Jesus told the apostles to get some rest.Mark 6:30-32 says,’The apostles gathered around Jesus and reported to him all they had done and taught.

Thanks Elaine. I look forward to participating in this group to share my experiences from the town where Jesus grew in wisdom and stature and enjoyed favour with God and people!
