Greater benefits for many in their daily battle of life.
THE MOST POWERFUL INVIATION                 By Phil Guerena Sr.

The world is filled with open invitations.  From personal to professional to financial to social, they are seemingly endless.  Money lenders invite consumers to apply for their various forms of credit.  Facebook and twitter invites individuals, through social media, to connect with those close to them, as well as with complete strangers.  Cell phone companies invite families to join their service plans.  Celebrities invite fans to become members of their website.  And even healthcare providers frequently invite insured patients to start considering their services.

Such open invitations are very appealing, and in some cases are a plus, but many come with unforeseen loop holes or price tags that ultimately end up costing the individual dearly.  On the flip side of this are those open invitations that are seemingly less appealing, however, end up being extremely beneficial to the one who accepts it. 

One such open invitation that is considered less appealing actually turns out to be the most powerful one ever given.  It guarantees inward and outward peace.   It was given almost two thousand years ago and it is still valid.  It is seen many times in the Old Testament and in the New Testament.  Jesus said:  “Come to Me, all you 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 rest for your souls.  For My yoke is easy and My burden is light. ” (Matthew 11:28-30) 
This is offered for anyone and everyone; but it is especially for those who find themselves loaded down with constant failure in pursing peace and righteousness.  Are you tired of lying and being lied to?  Are you weary of hating and being hated, getting angry and attacked by wrath?  Then this is the invitation that you have been looking for. 

You can rest in Him and learn from Him.  He who never was exhausted in being patient, kind, forgiving, meek, serving, giving, listening, sharing, tenderhearted and above all, loving wholeheartedly.  It was said of Him, “Never has man spoken like this man.”   This is most likely the only person we can learn from without going wrong.  He also said:  “I will never leave you nor fosake you.”  (Heb. 13:5)  Be careful of those who want to lead you astray in rebellion and unfaithfulness.  He calls them: “raging wolves in sheep’s clothing.”    “Buy the truth and sell it not.”   (Proverbs 23:23)
