Burden #2: Undisciplined Self

Many, many of the issues I face in life are the result of my own inability to be disciplined. To say “yes” to things that are good and helpful for me and to say “no” to things that will hurt me. The undisciplined self is my biggest challenge. Not the world’s influences. Not “the devil made me do it.” Me.

We’re in this short series on rest, looking at four soul-crushing burdens and how to rid my life of them. This Sunday’s message looks at Hebrews 4:1-10 and soul-crushing burden #2, an undisciplined self. I’m the reason I can’t find genuine rest. My decisions are what is keeping me tired, worn-out, exhausted.

When Jesus said, “Come to me, all 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 find rest for your souls,” he put the onus on us to respond to the imperatives. If you want rest, “Come” and “Take.” Rest is offered, but it must be received.

The rest of God comes when I practice...

...the discipline of reaching for (v. 1)

...the discipline of listening to (v. 2–5)

...the discipline of believing in (v. 6–7)

...the discipline of waiting on (v. 8–10)
