Spiritual Narcolepsy

This Sunday we will be examining the reaffirmation of the Covenant (2 Kings 23).  

Many of us have battles of what I call "spiritual narcolepsy"... it's most common feature is the victim's inability to REST IN JESUS.  

We love rules...

We love making rules....

Some of us actually love making rules about rules and the rules that govern the ruler's rule. (Seriously!)

Every believe needs, from time to time, to rest in the knowledge that no amount of rule making (or enforcement) will change the heart of a single individual.  They may comply... but they will not joyfully follow.  No, instead we must come to terms with what the Savior has published:

"Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest."
Matthew 11:28

It may take some time, but learning to rest in Christ will be well worth the exercise (pun intended).

Be blessed brethren... be a blessing.
