"From Time to Time" (Matthew 11:28-30)

Social media sites have made it easy to give a whimsical profile to the subscriber. One user posted under choice of religion, “From time to time…”


I think this tongue in cheek statement is more true than most of us want to admit. We may only turn to religion or God, when convenient, or when we have exhausted all of life’s options to resolve a difficult issue or problem.

Come to me, all who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you, and learn from me, for I am gentle and lowly in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light.
Matthew 11:28-30 (ESV)

The Bible refutes this philosophy. Turning to Jesus Christ is not a matter of convenience or some flight of fancy, it is a personal relationship with a real and living God. And if we turn to Him, He promises to share our burdens and help us to find rest for our souls. Given this promise, why would you put off making the decision to follow Him? And if you have accepted Jesus as your Lord and Savior, wouldn’t you want to seek Him at every moment, if He promises these limitless blessings?

Do you seek Jesus Christ “from time to time” or do you seek Him at every time? 

Love and trust the Lord; seek His will in your life.
