Who Cares? -  Who Can I Tell?

 

     There is a hymn that gives the answer in the chorus:

                    I must tell Jesus! I must tell Jesus!

                    I cannot bear my burden alone;

                    I must tell Jesus! I must tell Jesus!

                    Jesus can help me, Jesus alone.

 

     You may be thinking, ‘that’s just for church going folk’.  And you would be wrong!  Actually, they need this encouragement the least.

     We know from the Bible that the Lord Jesus created our universe and that included human beings and that includes YOU.  If you were God and created someone, would you then be disinterested in him or her?  Not likely!  Then why could you possibly imagine that He (Jesus) would not care about you?

     In fact, the Bible tells us that He wants to be ‘yoked’ with you so that He can share your burden.  Matthew 11:29&30 exhorts, “Take My yoke upon you and learn from Me, for I am gentle and lowly in heart, and you will find rest for your soul. For My yoke is easy and My burden is light.”  How does one earn the opportunity to be ‘yoked’ with the Lord Himself?   You cannot ‘earn’ it; however ……

     It’s really so simple that people overlook it and lose out.  You only need to put your faith and trust in the Lord Jesus and His gift to you becomes ‘locked in’.  To become a joint heir with Jesus, John 1:12 tells us, “But as many as received Him, to them He gave the right to be children of God, to those who believe in His name.”  Romans 10:9 states, “That if you confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus and believe in your heart that God raised Him from the dead, you will be saved.”

     You were created with a ‘free will’, not as a robot.  You were given the right to make a choice.  If, therefore, you call out to the Savior to accept His loving offer He will know that your heart also will be yoked with His.

     Do so right now and climb into the yoke.  As the days go by you will find your burdens less onerous and the future brighter!  How does this happen?  None of us knows HOW but we sure do know it works!  You can go along singing another chorus:

               Because He lives I can face tomorrow;

               Because He lives all fear is gone.

               Because I know He holds the future,

               And life is worth the living, just because He (Jesus) lives.
