Editorial: Cling to Jesus

Editorial by Patricia Monteiro

We live in a world that seems to spin much faster than we want it to, with each day accelerating a little more. We feel overwhelmed, tired and often discouraged because we want to produce and accomplish more goals than we did the day before. Months and years go by, leaving us feeling defeated.

Jesus says, “But the worries of this life, the deceitfulness of wealth and the desires for other things come in and choke the word, making it unfruitful” (Mark 4:19, NIV). It is during these very times that we must remember to hold onto the promises of our Heavenly Father revealed in the pages of His Word. If you are tired and frustrated, cling to Jesus’ promise: “Come unto Me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest” (Matt. 11:28-29, KJV). In the light of His Word, He will teach you—as He did in the Sermon on the Mount—to ask for the bread that you need to faithfully serve Him in your family, work, church and community.

I can imagine His reassuring whispers: “Come my dear son, my dear daughter; do not worry about tomorrow; the storehouse of heaven is open for you; remember that silver and gold, power and glory are mine; I depose kings and place others; wait on me; rest under my wings, the wings of the Most High.”

Come and sit at the table with Jesus and receive the rest, peace and security that only He can supply.
