These famous words of Jesus offer us the path to true rest of soul. Are you laden with guilt? Jesus provides full pardon and forgiveness. Are you weary of constantly doing what is wrong? Jesus offers progressive, and substantial, freedom. Are you tired of trying to justify yourself by your performance? Jesus gives instant justification to all who believe. Are you overwhelmed by the task of obeying God? Jesus sends the Spirit to transform all those who trust in Him. Are you worn out by constant rejection from those who do not know God? Jesus, who endured the murderous hatred of wicked enemies, will comfort and strength you. “Yoked” to Jesus, we can let Him carry the load for us. All we have to do is walk with Him by faith. For those who transfer their heavy burdens to Him, there is profound peace and real rest.
