As Christmas creeps closer, don’t fall for the lies of an empty “holiday celebration”. Your God was sacrificed that you my be redeemed. David’s sin would be paid for. Your sin is paid for. There is rest for David. There is rest for you in Jesus.
“Take a load off,” is what I just told you. What does that phrase mean to you? Maybe, at least, sit down or take off your shoes. There is a load that so many people carry around all the time. It’s not a backpack full of books. The heavy load is anxiety or depression. Another heavy load can be a guilty conscience. It’s important to not confuse or associate those two things. People who struggle with anxiety and depression aren’t sinning. The comfort that our God offers in the first few verses of Isaiah 40 are powerful medicine.
