Jesus takes your burden, you get rest!

Come unto me

Life is a struggle! Those who lay down legalistic laws to deal with sin, guilt and shame, add to the burden. Jesus came to take the burden and set us free. He gives an open invitation to unload our sin, shame, guilt, fears, stress. In exchange he give us his peace and righteousness!

Matthew 11:28-29English Standard Version (ESV)

28 Come to me, all who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. 29 Take my yoke upon you, and learn from me, for I am gentle and lowly in heart, and you will find rest for your souls.

  1. Matthew 7:14 But small is the gate and narrow the road that leads to life, and only a few find it. Please discuss the picture you shared a few years ago Christ holding the Lantern.

      • I look at it every morning, it’s a wonder. Just this week a visitor and I began discussing Jesus Christ (he doesn’t think he existed). I showed him this picture. He actually came back the next day to talk about it.
