“Come to Me, all you who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest… For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light.” – Matthew 11:28, 30
In JESUS’ name, amen.
The burden for many in this world is weighty. Thank You, Lord, that You invite all who are heavy laden to come to You. Many in the Hindu world are certainly desperate for rest – true rest. While Hinduism requires ever more sacrifice and offerings and good deeds, You tell these people to simply come and find rest in You. What a gracious God You are! Draw many burdened souls to Yourself, Lord. May their eyes be opened to see that any religion of works never works. Rather, may they see and believe that only faith in the One – Jesus – Who has fulfilled every work can lead us to an everlasting rest.
