We live in a world that has so many demands. We have demands to succeed. We have demands from loved ones. We have demands for income to provide for ourselves. We have demands to satisfy what we think we want and need in life. So many demands. So many struggles. So many worries. They weigh us down. They burden us. They cause anxiety and sleepless nights. But what does Jesus demand?
Jesus demands so very little. He only demands that you come to him with an open heart to receive. That is the beauty of Jesus. He demands nothing really yet gives us everything. He is the means of our freedom. He is the means of our salvation. He is the means of all that truly matters in life. What freedom we have in Jesus. No one else provides what Jesus offers.
“Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, 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.”
