“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.” (Matthew 11:28-30)

Our year-long study through Matthew's Gospel has been absolutely delightful. How refreshing to read this eyewitness account from a man who actually walked alongside Jesus. And one of our reasons studies in Matthew chapter 11, we saw Jesus teaching in the public square. He was addressing a weary audience when he said these comforting words, come to me all you who are weary, and carry heavy burdens, and you will find rest for your souls, For my yoke is easy to matter. And the burden I give you, is light. We never tire of hearing this calming invitation from our Lord, his soothing words spill over us, like a refreshing waterfall of hope, washing away our fatigue and replacing it with confidence during 2020. And again in 2021. Our nation in fact, our world has been bombarded with emotional bombshell, the kind that rattle our spirit, and make us feel exhausting to his listeners and again to us today. Jesus opens his arms and says, "Come to me. And I will give you rest." My friend, this is our mission at Insight for Living Ministries. And it's my promise to you today he as long as God gives me breath. I will declare these promises from God as accurately and enthusiastically as I know how. But I cannot walk this journey all alone.
