Matthew 11:28 AV
Come unto me,
all [ye] that labour
and are heavy laden,
and I will give you rest.
How kind is the invitation of the Lord Jesus to all who desire to know God as their Father. To all who desire to experience reconciliation and peace with Him.
▪︎ You may already have tormented yourself spiritually to come to terms with God.
▪︎ You may already have prayed and suffered a lot.
And yet, you still have no peace, still no rest, still no reconciliation.
You are still weary and burdened.
My friend, you still want to do so much yourself…
Do you want to be reconciled to God?
Do you want to know the Father?
Then there is only one way: “Come to Me!”
His Word is with power.
He did everything alone.
The debt is paid, the punishment has been borne, He paved the way to God’s Father heart.
Through Jesus alone you can come to the Father
There is under heaven no other name given to us by which we can be saved
Jesus alone, otherwise none.
- Only when your weary and burdened soul learns to lean on Him;
- Only when your weary and burdened soul learns to lean on His complete sacrifice, will you find rest for your soul.
For only he, who completely trusts in Him, finds himself surrounded with God’s mercies.
