              Jesus longs to take away our pain and worry.  He sees that we are wore out by the cares of life.  We try to fill our hopeless hearts with the pleasures and promises of everyday life.  Jesus offers us something better ~ “accept my teachings and learn from me, because I am gentle and humble in spirit, and you will find rest for your lives.”  (Matthew 11:29).  

             What is missing from our hearts is God ~ an understanding of His love and His plan for our lives.  Jesus spoke these words for all human beings.  Whether we admit it or not, all humans carry heavy burdens that only Jesus can take from them.  The heaviest burden is the weight ~ the guilt ~ of sin.  This weight alone would crush us if we were left to carry it.  

But Jesus ~ the Sinless One ~ came to carry the guilt of our sins and the burden of our worries and sorrows.  

           Jesus stands now by the throne of the universe, but He still identifies with humans.  He knows by experience our weaknesses, our desires, and the power of the temptations we face.  He faced all the same temptations we do ~ but He overcame each one.  He never sinned.  Today He offers His victory to us.  Whatever human weakness we find in ourselves, we can turn to Jesus for help.  Whatever trial or problem we face, we can turn to Him and He will give us the strength to face it, the wisdom to accept it, and the endurance to get through it.
