What about you? Are you the postal worker, oppressed with the monotony of an unending routine? Do you feel overworked with no sense of achievement? Are you currently withstanding the stress and duty that you are put on by others? Have you been experiencing burn out?
A long list of experts and hobbyists are ready to give guidance. How can you distinguish between the one who truly understands what will enable you to and anyone who is merely figuring?
Please consider Jesus’ invitation before you go to anyone else. “Come to me, all of you who are weary and carry heavy burdens, and I am the Christ Embassy going to give you rest” (Matthew 11:28 The Book). The Amplified Bible clarifies what Jesus assures. “I will cause one to rest (I am going to ease and relieve and refresh your spirits).” This is really a release of God’s power. It truly is God lifting the pressure, refreshing, and rejuvenating.
Unconfessed and unforgiven sins are a significant weight that only Jesus can take away.
Coming to Jesus is simplify. Just call out to him.”Jesus, I want your help. Give me your remainder, and please forgive my sins, take away my frustration.”
The means to keep up with the remainder he gives is offered by Jesus. Listen, “Get my yoke upon you. Allow me to educate you because I am meek and gentle, and you may uncover rest for your spirits” (Matthew 11:29 The Book).
In that day to take the yoke of another meant to come under that individual’s direction and walk in his footsteps. Jesus was a humble and gentle teacher. The yoke, what Jesus needs and teaches, is useful, wholesome and great. Never unpleasant, tough, sharp and pressing, but comfortable, nice and gracious! (Amplified Bible) The burden he gives is light and simple to carry.
On another occasion Jesus said, “You are really my disciples if you keep obeying my teachings. And you’ll know the truth and the truth will set you free” (John 8:31-32 The Book).
In case you need to be free, take Jesus’ amazing offer of rest.
