Soul Snack 107/13 ... Katch Komfort again
Burdens multiply as surely as the sun rises each morning. What good is a body of health if your spirit is destroyed?
As long as Heaven remains above and earth continues below, this invitation of Jesus will stand:
‘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.’ (Matt 11:28-30)
Jesus makes an offer here that only a fool could refuse. This is the best deal in the known cosmos; to exchange heavy for light, to release bad to receive good. The only charge to you (the invitee) Jesus places upon this offer is your burdens.
You may enquire - how could this be?
It is the character of the inviter that both desires and guarantees the exchange. Jesus loves to receive the distressed, He does not disdain their plea or look down upon brothers and sisters in their time of trouble. Jesus is not too good for you.
Here is His formula for comfort ~ you give Him your distress, He gives you His rest.
Praise be to the Lord, to God our Saviour, who daily bears our burdens. (Ps 68:19)
