"Come to me, all 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."
- Matthew 11:28-30
It was no accident that the angels showed up above the fields outside of Bethlehem to make their proclamation of "Glory to God in the highest heaven, and on earth peace to those on whom his favor rests." It was a triumphant signal that God was there for the humble and lowly and weary and broken. Those people had a place in the stable to encounter the Messiah. Jesus's invitation extends to us today. We can come and experience the deep rest of His peace.
What burden feels heavy right now? What step will you take as Jesus welcomes, "Come to me"?
