REST FOR OUR SOULS

January 16

Matthew 11:28-30 is an invitation for all to come to Christ and be saved.  It was originally offered to Israel as they struggled and toiled as we also do in this world’s difficulties.  Trying to live life without Christ is wearisome and hard as all of life’s difficulties bear down on us. Without Christ many times life just overwhelms us and beats us down. Many bail out on life because it just becomes too hard.  Many try the religious way of life and all the rules and regulations that they impose on people, but that is not what Christ does. He loves us and cares for us and when we trust in Him as Savior then life becomes easier as we can give all our cares and burdens to Him (1 Peter 5:6, Philippians 4:6-9). When we come to Christ the things that we felt we needed to do to get into heaven and please God and men become something we want to do, not have to.  That is why coming to Christ takes the load off of our shoulders as He gives us earthly peace, joy, and abundant life.  Do you know Him as Savior?  Come to Him today, ask Him to forgive you and save you because of Jesus’ death, burial, and resurrection which paid for your sins (1 Corinthians 15:3-4).

Matthew 11:28-30 “Come to Me, all you who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. 29 “Take My yoke upon you and learn from Me, for I am gentle and lowly in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. 30 “For My yoke is easy and My burden is light.”
