As the world spins around and all the hearts within it seem to scurry about,
As society seems whisked away in the hustle and bustle of a bright and busy world,
As you peak out at the chaos and wonder how you’ll ever keep up,
Let your heart listen carefully for the calm and tender voice that peacefully reminds you,
You don’t have to.
You don’t have to do more, for He has already done it all.
When Christ proclaimed, “It is finished” (John 19:30), the entire work of redemption had been fulfilled.
He put all striving to rest, which means we can rest too.
So ease your mind, release your heart, and let Christ tell you today what He told the crowds so many years ago,
“This is the only work God wants from you: Believe in the one he has sent.” (John 6:29)
