hat will give us peace and satisfaction? We might think relationships
will, a good job will, a good home, family, marriage, children, work,
skill, talent, gifts, etc. All these things and many more might make us
feel contented and satisfied, but only temporarily.
There is no one who can satisfy, nothing that can give us peace, other than
Jesus Christ. Dear beloved children of God, Jesus is giving an invitation
for each one of us to identify with Him as our Lord and Savior. The
invitation is not biased. It’s not for a certain sect or region or nation
but for all who put their trust in Jesus, believing He died and rose from
the dead for us.
In Matthew 11:28-30, Jesus wasand still iscalling on us to come to Him.
He calls those who are in the depths of sin, those who are weak, abandoned,
rejected, dejected, maltreated, victimized, sidelined, marginalized,
disrespected, destructively criticized, those who have felt hopeless in
life, those who are weary, those about to give up to come unto Him.
There’s rest in Jesus, so much peace in Christ. He forgives our sin, and He
comforts us in our troubles. Jesus said, Come to me, all of you who are
weary and carry heavy burdens, and I will give you rEsther Take my yoke upon
you. Let me teach you, because I am humble and gentle at heart, and you
will find rest for your souls. For my yoke is easy to bear, and the burden
I give you is light (Matthew 11:28-30).
Once we’ve put our trust in Jesus, we have His Holy Spirit living in us,
who helps us understand God’s Word and empowers us to follow His good ways.
This not only gives us clarity, guidance, direction, etc. but also comfort,
because we can rest in the work Jesus has done to translate us into the
kingdom of His Father. Beloved, there’s no sin beyond God’s mercy and
forgiveness. We can find eternal peace and satisfaction when we come unto
Jesus. Shadrach Goni
Why do you think Jesus wants us to come to Him? If you have never come to
Jesus, you can, right now. If you have questions about this, see our “Know
Even after we’ve put our trust in Jesus, we don’t have to feel bad for
calling out to Him many times, He won’t get tired. Maybe you did something
wrong today; you will probably fail tomorrow too. Don’t worry, just come to
Him. He is inviting you to be with Him. His mercies endure forever. How
could these truths give us hope and confidence to come to Jesus?
Then Jesus said, Come to me, all of you who are weary and carry heavy
burdens, and I will give you rEsther Matthew 11:28 (NLT)
