Resting In God

Come unto me, all ye that labor, and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you, and learn of me: for I am meek and lowly in heart, and ye shall find rest unto your souls – Matthew 11:28-29

Jesus Is The Reason for the Season

For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given: and the government shall be upon His shoulder: and His name shall be called Wonderful, Counselor, The Mighty God, the everlasting Father, the Prince of Peace – Isaiah 9:6.

When ye fast is a reference both to fasting and prescribed under the Mosaic Law in connection with the Day of Atonement, and the voluntary fast of that day. The Pharisees added two fast days, Monday and Thursday of each week as a case of public display and piety. Their sad disfigurement of face and the wearing of mourning garments gave them an opportunity to exhibit their superiority and sanctity before the people. Read More
