Matthew 11:28 – Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest.
THIS TEXT IS TRULY A CALL TO SALVATION! JESUS HAS ALREADY DONE ALL THE WORK NEEDED AT CALVARY OVER 2K YEARS AGO TO SAVE US FROM ALL OF LIFE’S BURNDENS AND SIN!
WE READ THE STORIES OVER AND OVER AGAIN THROUGH THE YEARS AND WE WERE REMINDED AGAIN ON LAST WEEK ABOUT HOW CHRIST CARRIED OUR BURDENS UPON HIMSELF. JOHN 3:16 DECLARES HIS LOVE FOR US!
NOW, ON TODAY, JESUS IS CALLING US TO CAST EVERY BURDEN UPON HIM FOR HE CARETH FOR US. HE PROVIDED IT AT CALARY!! HE PROVED THAT HE IS OUR BURDEN BEARER AT CALVARY!
ARE YOU BURDEN ON TODAY? GIVE IT TO JESUS! TELL HIM ALL ABOUT IT! TELL IT TO JESUS, FOR HE IS THE ONE WHO CAN HELP US!
We live in a world where burdens are a reality! Everyone of us carry some type of burden, whether we admit it or not!
If anyone knew about bearing burdens, it was Apostle Paul, for he said in 2 Corinthians 5:4- While we live in these earthly bodies, we groan and sigh, but it’s not that we want to die and get rid of these bodies that clothe us. Rather, we want to put on our new bodies so that these dying bodies will be swallowed up by life.
Paul was forced to bare many burdens, but it did not stop him from fulfilling the task that God had assigned to His hands.
In a world full of burden carriers, God is saying “give them to ME”!
There is no need for us to attempt to carry our troubles or problems any longer.
Jesus invites all those who are weary and burdened, an opportunity to ride themselves of it from this moment forward. Is He speaking to you on this morning? Are you weary, angry, frustrated, tired and burdened down with life’s issues? If you are, Jesus commands you on today to “COME”! Yes, He says, “COME” unto me all who are weary and burdened and I will give you rest.
Today Jesus offers assurance of rest to the weary!
Are you burden? Turn it over to Jesus by faith in His Word which declares in Proverbs 3:5-6 Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; 6-in all your ways acknowledge him, and he will make your paths straight.
In plain language, Jesus is saying “COME” to me all who who are struggling with life in any way. You do not have to carry your burdens alone anymore, for I (JESUS) will help you!
Jesus knew that all people have a difficult path to follow in life. Life is not easy because we live in a world that is filled with sin.
Regardless of what burden we may find ourselves carrying on today, Jesus is saying “COME” to me and find rest.
There is a song that that saints of old used to sing that I still love today. This song still rings true. The name of it is- I MUST TELL JESUS! — I must tell Jesus all of my trials, I cannot bear these burdens alone; In my distress He kindly will help me, He ever loves and cares for His own.
Refrain: I must tell Jesus! I must tell Jesus! I cannot bear my burdens alone; I must tell Jesus! I must tell Jesus!Jesus can help me, Jesus alone. I must tell Jesus all of my troubles, He is a kind, compassionate Friend; If I but ask Him He will deliver, Make of my troubles quickly an end.
Tempted and tried I need a great Savior, One who can help my burdens to bear; I must tell Jesus, I must tell Jesus: He all my cares and sorrows will share. What must I do when worldliness calls me? What must I do when tempted to sin? I must tell Jesus, and He will help me, over the world the vict’ry to win.
Oh, what a beautiful song and prayer! Is this your cry on today? Are you in need of telling it all to Jesus? HE IS THE ONE! HE IS THE ONLY ONE WHO CAN HELP YOU! Will you trust Him on today?
JESUS CALLS YOU ON TODAY: COME UNTO ME ALL YOU WHO ARE WEARY AND BURDENED AND I WILL GIVE YOU REST!
TRUE REST CAN ONLY COME FROM CHRIST! WILL YOU SURRENDER IT ALL TO HIM ON TODAY? HE WILLING TO TAKE YOUR BURDENS, FOR HE SAID HE WOULD DO IT IF YOU WOULD ONLY “COME”!
THE CALL FROM HEAVEN TO EARTH ON TODAY IS TO “COME” TO JESUS WHILE YOU STILL HAVE TIME!! WILL YOU DO IT? I PRAY YOU WILL!
God bless and Do tell the Lord thank you!
I love you all with the love of Christ.
