Come to Me – Matthew 11:28

What Jesus Did!

Key Passage

“Come to me all you people that are tired and have heavy burdens. I will give you rest.”

— Matthew 11:28 ERV (Read Full Text)

Key Thought

Tired! Weary! Exhausted! Depleted! Burdened! Is that you? There are times when the limits of our mortality overwhelm our intentions, commitments, and abilities. In our quest for significance, we chase so many things. But there is only one true quest for significance that leads to rest: we must surrender all of those burdens to Jesus and trust him to supply our significance. Why is it so hard for us to come to Jesus? … To let him begin right now where we are in our lives? Why is it so hard to put down our burdens and come to him?

Prayer

Lord God Almighty, you are marvelous beyond description and majestic beyond comprehension. But since you came to my world in Jesus, I come to him to find you. Please help me know you as I come to Jesus for rest. In the name of the Lord Jesus Christ I pray. Amen.
