Simply put: she wants them to turn and go to Jesus!
Jesus gave a strong rebuke to those listening and said:
“…and you are not willing to come to Me that you may have life.” (John 5:40)
Although I have gone to Him for eternal life, there are plenty of times I resist going to Him. Makes no sense…but I resist depending on Him and trust in my flesh.
I must daily (hourly, minute-by-minute) come to the end of my resources and turn to Christ.
Desperation is a part of true salvation…no one turns to Christ as long as he has confidence in himself.
Desperation is present in true service of Christ—constantly turning to and trusting in Christ—with no confidence in myself.
Why do I resist? Because as long as I am in this earthly body—I will be tempted to have confidence in my flesh—but it will never work! There’s no rest in me—but there is total rest when I run to Jesus!
Getting ready for Sunday?
Pray for Christian mothers to find purpose and rest in being “yoked” to Jesus.
