Pastor's Thoughts (Apr 8th)
“Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For my yoke is easy and my burden is light.” Matthew 11:28-29
This week I have been weary and burdened. My brother in Texas is in the hospital with covid. Our son in Virginia was in the hospital after a fall. He is home now and doing better. A son-in-law’s dad fell and broke his hip and after surgery is in rehab. He is 93 and disoriented. I have sought the rest of Jesus all week. And I have taken these loved ones to the Lord in prayer. I know he is with them and healing will come.
Jesus teaches us through his life gentleness and humility. He also teaches us trust. The song line that comes to mind is “where can I go but to the Lord”. If I do not go to Christ when I am weary and burdened, I am overwhelmed. That is because I am human. I am thankful for His words that remind me that His yoke is easy, and his burden is light.
What has wearied you and burdened you this week. Remember, Christ is risen! And has called us to live in the power of the resurrection.
