• Two Burdens

    Burdens of Doubt

    Jesus doesn’t mince words when it comes to judgment and hell.
    “Does God subvert judgment? Or does the Almighty pervert justice?” (Job 8.3)

    Selective Blindness
    This blindness ranges from turning a blind eye to the beauty of creation to staunch refusal to acknowledge all things spiritual.
    And Jesus said, “For judgment I have come into this world, that those who do not see may see, and that those who see may be made blind.” (John 9.39)

    Burdens of Belief

    New labor
    I cannot do meaningless work for very long, even easy work. But I can do hard work all day if it is meaningful.
    “Do you not know that those who run in a race all run, but one receives the prize? Run in such a way that you may obtain it.” (1 Corinthians 9:24)

    Casting off the old yoke
    There can only be one yoke in your life. You serve someone, but you cannot serve two masters.
    “No one can serve two masters; for either he will hate the one and love the other, or else he will be loyal to the one and despise the other.” (Matthew 6.24)

    Lay Your Burden Down

    “Cast your burden on the LORD, And He shall sustain you; He shall never permit the righteous to be moved.” (Psalm 55.22

    New King James Version (NKJV)

    20 Then He began to rebuke the cities in which most of His mighty works had been done, because they did not repent: 21 “Woe to you, Chorazin! Woe to you, Bethsaida! For if the mighty works which were done in you had been done in Tyre and Sidon, they would have repented long ago in sackcloth and ashes. 22 But I say to you, it will be more tolerable for Tyre and Sidon in the day of judgment than for you. 23 And you, Capernaum, who are exalted to heaven, will be[d] brought down to Hades; for if the mighty works which were done in you had been done in Sodom, it would have remained until this day. 24 But I say to you that it shall be more tolerable for the land of Sodom in the day of judgment than for you.”

    Jesus Gives True Rest

    25 At that time Jesus answered and said, “I thank You, Father, Lord of heaven and earth, that You have hidden these things from the wise and prudent and have revealed them to babes. 26 Even so, Father, for so it seemed good in Your sight. 27 All things have been delivered to Me by My Father, and no one knows the Son except the Father. Nor does anyone know the Father except the Son, and the one to whom the Son wills to reveal Him. 28 Come to Me, all you 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. 30 For My yoke is easy and My burden is light.”
