8th Day of Christmas: The Gift of Rest

Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls Matthew 11:29

January 2013 030

In all the hurry towards Christmas, it is too easy to forget to rest for a moment at the manger. God came and rested here upon the earth as the humble child of Mary. He entered in the unhurried nine months in the waiting room of her womb. He didn’t burst forth with proclamations of greatness flowing from his own lips, but in a meek quietness. Shepherds were the first to know as they rested with their flocks. The same God who has awakened us to the glory has also gently invited us to rest our souls in Him alone!

My wife and I serve as members of a worship team at a multicultural church. Our members are from Brazil, Nepal and the U.S.. Because of the many languages and cultures in our local body we face unique challenges, such as how many songs will we do in English today? What new songs can we use in either language that are simple enough for the people to sing. The songs, the devotions and insights here are a small portion of some of the ways God is leading us as we push towards the goal. I pray that these will be both a blessing and an encouragement for those of you who may pass by Praise 2 Worship.
