DON’T GIVE UP – LOOK UP!
When you're mentally and physically exhausted!
THE WISE MEN WERE EXHAUSTED
“Now after Jesus was born, some wise men traveled a long way from the east and finally arrived in Jerusalem.” Matthew 2:1WHEN THEIR FOCUS CHANGED, THEIR FEELINGS CHANGED!
EVERYTHING CHANGED FOR THE WISE MEN WHEN . . .THEY MET JESUS
(After leaving King Herod) “Then the star appeared to them again guiding them to Bethlehem. It went ahead of them and stopped over the place where the child was. When they saw the star, they were filled with joy! And when they entered the house, they SAW the child with his mother Mary. So they bowed down and they worshiped him. Then they opened their treasure chests and they gave him gifts of gold, frankincense, and myrrh.” Matthew 2:9-11 (GW)
THE CHRISTMAS GIFT JESUS OFFERS TO YOU
JESUS SAID, “If you’re tired of carrying a heavy load, and you feel like giving up, come to me and I will give you REST! Yoke up with me and let me teach you how to REALLY LIVE, for I’m gentle and humble, and you’ll find YOUR SOUL REFRESHED AND RECOVERED. Living connected to me is far EASIER, and my strength in you will LIGHTEN THE BURDENS you carry!” Matthew 11:28-30
“TODAY, A SAVIOR HAS BEEN BORN FOR YOU!” Luke 2:11
