"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."
This is a familiar verse originally lifted from Matthew 11:28-29 when the Lord Jesus Christ was urging people to come especially those who are tired and weary. This is also a popular line of a gospel song that reminds us to come to the Lord in times of trials and surely He will be of great help.
This is but an open and (still) relevant invitation for all regardless of religion, race, or status in life. This is a Blessed Invite that everyone should not take for granted, neither let it pass; this is an avenue where people come and learn of the Lord, and where burdens put to rest, and where trials meet triumph.
Have you ever had an invitation which you happen to ignore but realise the importance too late? Have you had an invite which (you) say “Yes” only to mean “No” and lose a great opportunity? Have you had an experience where you refuse the invitation only to regret as this could have changed your life? Every invite to an (special or rare) occasion is a possibility that could present adding value to us materially, physically, or relationally or spiritually. If we negate the invite, we will remain in the dark and we shall never come to a knowledge about it; on the other hand, if we respond positively to it, we would have a chance to either witness or learn or experience what’s in store for us thereat.
The SG16 is a “Blessed Invite” - an inspiring gathering on the fourth of August at Mandarin Orchard Singapore where blessing surely comes with those who attend on purpose. Don’t miss it!
