Come to Me and Rest

Shalom brethrens, our discussion today is based on Matthew 11:16-19, 25-30. In this discussion we look at some message Jesus delivered to people after warning some cities who hear the word of God and do no believe will have no mercy during judgment day.

At that time Jesus said, "Father, Lord of Heaven and earth! I thank you because you have shown to the unlearned what you have hidden from the wise and learned."

"My Father has given me all things. No one knows that Son except the Father, and no one knows the Father except the Son and those whom the Son chooses to reveal him. (Matt.11:27)

" Come to me, all of you are tired from carrying heavy loads, and I will give you rest. (Matt.11:28)
"Take my yoke (Cloth) and put it on you and learn from me, because I am gentle and humble in spirit, and you will find rest. For the yoke I will give you is easy and the load I will put on you is light." (Matt . 11:19-30)

Discussion

Jesus chose us and reveals himself to us in his word. He wants to give us rest from carrying heavy loads.
What are the heavy loads?  It refers to troubles, worries and difficult situations that we go through in life while serving the Lord. Jesus said, you carry the loads to me  and I will give you rest.

Jesus said, take my Yoke (Cloth) and put it on and learn from me. If we are put on Jesus' yoke and learn from him then we have to do what Jesus taught us to do.

We may go through difficult times or facing troubles but we must keep praising and serving God and follow Jesus with a prayerful life and He will give us everlasting rest  which is a reward for the endurance of surviving in faith during trying times.

When Jesus calls your name and give you his yoke and put a light load on you, that will be your reward filled with great joy and that is the eternal rest in Heaven forever.

Amen.
