17 That Christ may dwell in your hearts2 by faith; that you, being rooted and grounded in love,
18 May be able to comprehend with all the saints what is the breadth, and length, and depth, and height [of His love];
19 So to know the love of Christ, which exceeds all knowledge, that you might be filled with all the fullness of God.
28 Come to me, all you who labor and are heavy burdened, and I will give you rest.2 [Come — not to sect services that claim He is in their building, not to prayer meetings, not to altar calls, not to read the Bible; Jesus even said that studying the scriptures is not coming to Him. John 5:39-40. We must go directly to Him, by sitting in humble silence as we wait on Him, listening for His voiced commands and teachings. Come all of you who labor against sin, all who are heavy burdened with your sins, and He will destroy the sins in your heart; and then you will be at rest.]
29 Take my yoke upon you, and learn from me; for I am meek and lowly in heart, and [then] you will find rest for your souls.3 [Learn from Him directly speaking to you, not reading about Him, or listening to other people talk about Him. The rest is to cease from your own dead works to then be completely directed by the Lord in what to do and what to say. But Christianity is at rest from guilt of their continued sinning, licensed by their false, so-called grace; so, "Arise and depart, for this is not the rest. Because it is defiled, it shall destroy you, even with a grievous destruction." Mic 2:10.]
|Mark 6:34 |
34 And when Jesus came out and saw many people, he was moved with compassion toward them, because they were like sheep not having a shepherd; and he began to teach them many things.
