Coming To Him

17 03 2015

“Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest.”  Matthew 11:28

Does life ever feel a little too heavy for you to carry?  It happens, but it doesn’t have to overwhelm us.   Christ has all the strength we need to make it through whatever life throws our way.  The key is to stay connected to him, and He promises to refresh our souls for the journey ahead.

Jesus goes on to say “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 11:29-30).  Why are we burdened?  Why are we weary?  Because we are carrying things that God hasn’t asked us to carry.  When we pick up things of this world… the expectations, the obligations, the pressures, the requirements… then the burden gets heavier and heavier.

The only way to find His rest is to let the things of this world go, and to find our perspective from the vantage point of Christ.  It is only by coming to him with our pressures, expectations and burdens, that we can discover what really is the most important thing in life.

So why carry such a heavy burden today?  Why get weary and exhausted fighting things in this world?  Come to Jesus and you’ll find true rest for your soul.
