When we come to Jesus we “arrive in the presence of God, whose wrath we should fear and whose holiness should terrify us, yet He gives us rest. Not wrath. Not judgment. Not condemnation. Rest. Rest from struggling, proving, earning, laboring, and losing. We’re given an easy yoke and a light burden. The membership dues are no greater than the entrance fee—and Jesus has taken care of them both. ‘Y’all just come on in,’ He says, again and again. ‘The laboring is done with, and I’m not starting it up again.'”1


28 Come to Me, all who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. 29 Put My yoke upon your shoulders—it might appear heavy at first, but it is perfectly fitted to your curves. Learn from Me, for I am gentle and humble of heart. When you are yoked to Me, your weary souls will find rest. 30 For My yoke is easy, and My burden is light. 2
