Come to me, all who are weary and heavy-laden and I will give you rest.
What an invitation! Jesus is inviting all who are weary and heavy-laden, and he promises to give them rest. He gives this invitation to everyone in every race everywhere. It is a great invitation; and it is filled with love.
The door of that rest is widely open to everyone. Everyone, "who thirsts, comes to the waters; and you who have no money, come, buy and eat. Come; buy wine and milk without money and without cost" for Jesus has already paid the price(Isaiah 55:1). He wants everyone to be part of that rest. He makes provision for everyone who is willing to come for He says: "Do not let your heart be troubled; believe in God, believe also in me. I go to prepare a place for you. If I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again and receive you to Myself, that where I am, there you may be also" (John 14:1, 3). It is an unspeakable and unexplainable rest, which is in an extraordinary place that is governed by Almighty God.
Jesus' objective is to give us another status, another name, another family, another hope, another vision, another position for the Bible declares: "For the Lord, himself, will descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel and the trumpet of God, and the dead in Christ will rise first. Then we who are alive and remain will be caught up together with them in the clouds to meet the lord in the air, and so we shall always be with the Lord" (1 Thessalonians 4:16, 17).
Satan is a liar and he is the father of all lies. He is roving around and seeking whom he may devour. He wants to devour your family. He wants to devour your children. He wants to devour your marriage and then you. Jesus is the only one who can set you free for the word of God says: "There is salvation in no one else; for there is no other name under heaven that has been given among man by which we must be saved" (Act. 4:12).
Jesus-Christ is the only Redeemer. Would you like to invite him into your life today? Repeat this prayer in a personal way: Jesus, I invite you into my life. Coming right now. I want you to deliver me from my burden
