Come To Jesus – Linking to Molly’s “Come to Jesus” Journey

I came across this post just now and couldn’t help but link to it. Here’s an appetizer:

I literally thought that God wanted me to war against my culture. I believed that culture was out to get me, out to get my kids, out to get my church. I mistakenly forgot the real enemy, and thought it was my culture instead, unlike God, who knew exactly what the real problem was when He came down INTO an equally-fallen culture. He saturated Himself in it, unafraid to pal around with the worst of the lot and, interestingly, the only ones He had a real problem with were the ones righteously abstaining from said culture.

I’ve been talking about coming to Jesus to find rest. I think Molly Aley’s self-documented pilgrimage from legalism to love demonstrates well her own “come to Jesus” journey.

“Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you 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. For my yoke is easy and my burden is light.” Matthew 11:28-30.

What do you think?
