Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.Take my yoke upon you, and learn of me; for I am meek and lowly in heart: and ye shall find rest unto your souls.For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light. Matthew 11:28-30
Are you tired of trying to overcome sin on your own? Are you worn out from trying to be perfect, in your own power? Have you tried to be righteous on your own and found yourself seriously wanting? Here is the good news: you don’t have to do this on your own. Jesus Christ paid the price for us, so that we could be saved from our sin, and so that we could also be partakers of the Father’s inheritance. The life of Christ is an unburdened life, filled with rest and blessed assurance in the hope we have!

And we pray:
Dear God, I thank You for the calm and peace I have in You as a result of what Your Essence – in Jesus Christ, did for me. LORD, I have struggled with my sin and I have grown weary from trying to be perfect on my own. Thank You, Father, for removing the burden from my shoulders and helping me overcome my struggles. In Jesus’ name I pray, Amen.
