God has laid it on my heart to share from God’s Word every week during this national crisis. I want to speak to those who have no hope, to those who live in fear. God gives us rest and joy and peace in Jesus. God sent Jesus to be our Savior. And it was when the prodigal son finally came to the end of himself that he sought the Lord. Have you come to the end of yourself?
God made you to know and to love Him. But your sin has broken that relationship. Your sin is the real problem. “All we like sheep have gone astray; we have turned everyone to his own way” (Isaiah 53:6). You will not know life and rest and peace and joy until your sin is forgiven. You will not have an answer for the meaning and purpose of life until you repent and surrender your life to Jesus.
In Matthew 11:28-29 Jesus gives wonderful words of hope and promise to those that are lost and dead in their sin. “Come unto Me, all ye that labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Take My yoke upon you, and learn of Me; for I am meek and lowly in heart: and ye shall find rest unto your souls.” Will you turn in faith to Jesus? Will you receive His gift of eternal life? Only then will you find rest for your soul.
