Matthew 11:28 Come to me, all who are weary and heavy-laden and I will give you rest.
As we hear and watch the news lately it is almost overwhelming. People are hurting. They are losing their jobs, and homes and in many cases hope. I am not trying to diminish the seriousness of what is going on but there have always been difficult times. Ask the Jews who survived the Holocaust or grandparents who lived through the great depression, or the millions around the world who go to bed hungry each night. Mothers burying their children because there was nothing to eat. Disease killing countless people because there is no medicine. There have always been tough times and in the midst of those times there has always been a voice calling out and saying "Come to me those of you who are overwhelmed and those who do not know where to turn, and I will give you rest." The answer today is the same as it has been for thousands of years. Come to Jesus. When we come to Jesus we find the rest we need and the love to help others who are hurting. No matter what life holds everyone comes to the same fate. Rich or poor, influential or unknown. Red and yellow black and white they are precious in His sight. Jesus promises us an eternal home and hope in heaven. Share that news with someone today. Come to Jesus and rest. Listen to this beautiful song by Chris Rice and sense the Love of Jesus who knows something about difficult circumstances.
