Our burden is light.

Jesus said, “Come to me, all of you who are weary and carry heavy burdens, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you. Let me teach you, because I am humble and gentle at heart, and you will find rest for your souls.

I think a good majority of folks have read or at least heard that passage from Matthew 11. Jesus tells us that instead of carrying our burdens ourselves, we’re to take them to Him.

He can handle it. If you doubt that, I would encourage you to read any of the four Gospels. Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John all do a fabulous job telling us exactly what Jesus was able to endure on the cross.

Jesus Christ bore the sins of the world. Mine, yours, your mother’s, your brother’s, your neighbor’s, all of them. And He did it voluntarily. Jesus gave up His life for us. Hebrews 12:2 (NLT) tells us, “Because of the joy awaiting him, he endured the cross, disregarding its shame. Now he is seated in the place of honor beside God’s throne.”

Our burdens are NOTHING compared to what Christ endured at Calvary. But He still calls you to come, as heavy or as light as your burdens may be.
