Rest for Your Soul

Matthew 11.28-30

28 ‘Come to me, all you that are weary and are carrying heavy burdens, and I will give you rest. 29Take my yoke upon you, and learn from me; for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. 30For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light.’


We all carry burden in our hearts.  It is part of the human condition; to have struggles and challenges.  Jesus knows that it is hard to have rest for our souls when they are overloaded with burdens.  Jesus offers us an invitation, take his yoke and have rest from the burdens of life.  You may know that a yoke is used to balance power between two animals.  The stronger animal bears the brunt of the load.  Jesus offers to walk with us in our life and to carry our load and give us rest.  The invitation is open to walk through your burdens with Christ.  Will you accept his invitation and have rest for your soul?
