“Come to Me, all you who labor and are heavily laden, and I will give you rest.” Matthew 11:28
To labor and be heavy burdened are two descriptions of our conditions that most are facing in one area or another. This can be applied to the physical, emotional, and soul – influencing our spirits.
Culture is telling us to have third-party encounters with one another through some device that offers opinions and information for man-made solutions. My question is – “Would Jesus walking on earth advise people to learn of Him through someone else, no matter how sincere?”
He wants direct communion with each of us, whether as His children needing His comfort and care or as a person controlled by fears needing Him for life itself.
In both cases, there is only one judge to know how to offer rest to our souls that are seeking a reliable source – God himself. The first step – is to come.
