“Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. Matthew 11:28
Are you overwhelmed? Jesus is given an open invitation to everyone to drop those burdens upon him and he will give us rest. This might seem too good to be true, how can Christ take away all our burdens? He is the same one who took on the sins of the world, so we can be free
The first part of the scripture says “Come to Me”, first thing we need to do to receive peace is come to Christ. As God said if you draw near me, I will draw near you (James 4:8). We can’t expect God to fix anything if we are distant from him. Come to God through Jesus Christ in prayer and worship
Second part Jesus says is “All of You”. Jesus didn’t say some of you can be saved he said everyone. Don’t let anyone or anything stop you from building a relationship with God. Don’t let religion or man-made rules dictate your personal relationship with your Lord and Savior.
Often people feel inferior or not worthy to sit at the Lords table. However, this is blasphemy! Jesus laid down his life for everyone, Everyone who calls upon the name of The Lord shall be saved! (Romans 10:13)
The final part is Jesus says “I will give you rest”. The original Greek word for Rest is “Katapausis” meaning a “calming” or “resting place”. God knows our burdens and wants to give us a “resting place” a “calm from the storm”. This can only be found through Jesus Christ, who is the “Prince of Peace” and can calm every storm in Jesus Name Amen
