Simple message - 100s of millions have responded


Jesus astonished people.
The miracles.
The healings.
The authority of his teaching.
His claims to be God. To be One with the Father.

But his words had the most impact.

Then.

And now...

28 -30"Are you tired?
Worn out?
Burned out on religion?
Come to me.
Get away with me and you'll recover your life.
I'll show you how to take a real rest.
Walk with me and work with me—watch how I do it.
Learn the unforced rhythms of grace.
I won't lay anything heavy or ill-fitting on you.
Keep company with me and you'll learn to live freely and lightly."

You might be more familiar with a differet version. Here it is in the King James:

28Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden,
and I will give you rest.
29Take my yoke upon you, and learn of me;
for I am meek and lowly in heart:
and ye shall find rest unto your souls.
30For my yoke is easy,
and my burden is light.

Hundreds of millions have responded over the years.
Well over a billion are responding today.

Words that change the world...
