“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 light.” Matthew 11: 28-30
As we celebrate our nations’s independence from autocratic rule, we should also celebrate our freedom from the yoke (or burden) of sin, excessive demands from religious leaders and weariness. Our Lord and Savior frees us from these weights and gives us rest in the form of love and peace with God.
Have a happy and safe 4th of July! May the Lord be with you and your families today and always!
