HOW TO REST
28 “Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest.
11:28-30 A yoke is a heavy wooden harness that fits over the shoulders of an ox or oxen. It is attached to a piece of equipment the oxen are to pull. A person may be carrying heavy burdens of (1) sin, (2) excessive demands of religious leaders (23:4; Acts 15:10), (3) oppression and persecution, or (4) weariness in the search for God. Jesus frees people from all these burdens. The rest that Jesus promises is love, healing, and peace with God, not the end of all labor. A relationship with God changes meaningless, wearisome toil into spiritual productivity and purpose. Tyndale. Life Application Study Bible NIV.
ON THE WAY HOME WALK WITH JESUS and allow Jesus to show you love so you can rest in the assurance of life in eternity.
