Deeper Thoughts - Matthew 11:28-30

11:28 Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. 11:29 Take my yoke on you and learn from me, because I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. 11:30 For my yoke is easy to bear, and my load is not hard to carry.

We are all burdened by sin. The guilt and shame weighs heavily upon us. Jesus invites us to come to him. And he will give us rest. Rest. The burden is lifted. We are to learn from him...and he will give us rest. He does not burden us...his load is light. The law was a heavy burden...so heavy that it was impossible to bear. But Jesus gives us a new way...his way isn't a burden...it isn't heavy. His way gives us rest for our weary souls.

We no longer need to be burdened with the law. We just need to put our faith in Jesus. No more guilt and shame...we can turn it over to him. He will forgive us!
