Lay Down Your Burden

by on March 10, 2014

Hannah Whitall Smith tells the story of the man who was walking along a road, carrying a heavy burden on his shoulders. A wagon overtook him and the driver kindly offered to give the man a ride. The man happily accepted the offer, but even when he was seated on the wagon, he continued to carry the heavy load on his shoulders.
Perplexed, the kindhearted wagon driver said, “Sir, why don’t you put down your burden? There’s plenty of room.”

“Oh, no,” said the man. “I feel it’s almost too much to ask you to carry me. I wouldn’t think of asking you to carry my burden also.”

Maybe you are like that man. You’ve allowed Christ to carry you—to be your Savior—but you are unwilling to entrust certain areas of your life to his care. Jesus wants control of your whole life: “Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest” (Matthew 11:28). If there are problems in your life too heavy for you to bear alone, give them to Jesus. He will carry your load.

Expect a Miracle,

Pastor Jubal
