Bible verse and reflection

Matthew 11:28 -30

This is a verse Jesus says in the Bible about rest:

“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.”


Jesus asks us to come to him and that he is the one who can give us rest and peace in our circumstances. When Jesus talks about the yoke he is referring to the weight a cow would carry to plough the fields. Jesus is saying that his weight is light and that we can take his yoke upon us when we feel heavy and burdened. Use the steps below to reflect on this Bible verse.


1. Are you carrying any heaviness or burdens?

2. Jesus says he is gentle and humble. What is your experience of Jesus?

3. Did you know you can pray to God to give you rest and peace? Try praying today to ask him for rest.


Prayer

Jesus I pray you will give me rest from my burdens. I am feeling ___ and I need to know your peace. Help me to find rest for my soul. Amen.
