Jesus says, “Come to me, all who are weary and heavy-laden, 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).

That’s the kind of man I want to learn from. One who takes the burden of sin away. The one who teaches me with gentleness and humility, leading me to the rest of heaven. The one who bore the wrath for me, so there is not burden for my sins.

Lord, please make my teaching emulate Christ, my Savior’s. May we be gentle, humble, and gracious, just as your Son was to His disciples.

Feel the weight of your sin? There is hope in Christ! Place your faith in Him. Turn from your sins and turn to Him. Find rest and forgiveness.
