Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest

Posted by admin on 2 October 2013 in Matthew |

“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)

 

“Come to me” (28a)

Today Jesus calls you to come to him. Who is your master? Whom do you obey? Everyone who sins is a slave to sin (John 8:34).  A slave of sin is weary and burdened. The wages of sin is death (Romans 6:23). The one who does what is sinful is of the devil (1 John 3:8).

 

“Take my yoke upon you and learn from me” (29a)

Here “yoke” implies “master & disciple” relationship and “obedience”.  Be His disciple. Learn His gentleness & humility.

 

“For my yoke is easy and my burden is light” (30)

His ways are pleasant ways and all his paths are peace (Proverbs 3:17). When you are a disciple of Jesus, you won‘t carry the heavy burden that sin imposes.

You will be set free from sin (John 8:32). You will find ‘rest’ for your soul.

 

Today Jesus calls you.

Come and be his disciple.

You will find rest for your soul.
