Summary: Jesus has chosen to introduce the entire world to His Father.
"His Plan Revealed” Matthew 11:25-30
11:25-26, the arrogant and know-it-all are the ones that will suffer. They refuse to open their minds to something new and a different way of seeing God.
The laws/life of the day was overwhelming to the people just like all the things we have to do with today. They were so burdened down with what we would call RED tape. They could not keep up with them.
Jesus is saying, “Trust me, come to me and I will give you relief”. What I’m asking will help you get through all this stuff in life.
Let’s discard all the confusing stuff, let’s get back to the basics of our life. Do you know that Jesus NEVER once tried to prove that there was a God that was and is the basic of life?
He was, He is, and He will be.
The faith of a child is all we need to receive what God has for us. Science keeps trying to disprove the Bible and God, but every time it comes back as more proof of whom God is. They can not disprove God.
Matthew 18:2-4, 2He called a little child and had him stand among them. 3And he said: "I tell you the truth, unless you change and become like little children, you will never enter the kingdom of heaven. 4Therefore, whoever humbles himself like this child is the greatest in the kingdom of heaven.
Let’s get past all of the small print and the legalist burden that society has tied us to. Let’s clear our minds of all the RED tape. Let’s get right down to the YES and NO questions and answers. Something a child, a beginner can understand.
That is where we are going, “Come to me and I will help”.
11:27, this sounds like a game of musical chairs doesn’t it?
You can not be introduced to the Son unless the Father does it, but you can’t know the Father unless the Son makes that introduction.
This reminds me of my parents, I would ask one of them if I could go or do something, the reply would be, “its okay with me if it’s okay with your mother.” So I would go and ask mom, the reply would be, “its okay with me if it’s okay with your father.”
I could go, but I couldn’t, so what can I do or can’t I do?
Isn’t it wonderful that the Son, Jesus, has chosen to introduce the entire world to His Father? He says in verse 28 “come to me, all you who are weary and burdened”.
The decision was made; you are not getting the musical chairs routine, the decision has been made, COME ALL.
This portion of scripture has been quoted and used to encourage people for centuries, but what does it mean to you?
Weary and heavy laden – Tired and the load is not getting any lighter
Take my Yoke – A yoke that fits, take what I have for you.
Learn from Me – He will show you how to get through this time
I am gentle and humble in heart – As long as you are trying the help will be there
You will find rest for your souls – comfort of knowing you are not alone, ease of mind
Yoke is easy – A double yoke. The tools to do the work will be there to make the job easier.
Burden is light – The right tools (knowledge and wisdom) make the burden bearable. Cut the job down to size.
ON and on, we can apply this scripture to any and all parts of your life.
