“Come to me, all of you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. Take up my yoke and learn from me, because I am lowly and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For my yoke is easy and my burden is light.” Matthew 11:28-29
Jesus’ gracious invitation is to all “who are weary and burdened” with the troubles of life and the sins of their own human nature. By coming to Jesus for forgiveness and help by committing our lives to Christ and obeying his direction, we find freedom and relief from the heaviness of life. We, also, receive peace and the presence of the Holy Spirit to lead us through life. In addition, God gives the strength to deal with the cares and difficulties we sometimes must carry.
