The Journey with Ron Moore

The Special Invitation | Matthew 11:28

Matthew 11:28
Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest.

Jesus’ special invitation is for all who are carrying heavy loads. The weight wears a person down mentally, physically and spiritually. There is only one remedy for body and soul exhaustion - rest. And that’s exactly what Jesus promises.

You have never received an invitation like this! Jesus himself requests your presence. He wants you to come to him. He doesn’t like distance. He has something to give you that you can’t find anywhere else. He is motioning for you. Don’t hesitate. He will give you rest!

This verse reminds me of Hillsong’s Forever Reign. The second verse and chorus go like this.

You are peace You are peace
When my fear is crippling
You are true You are true
Even in my wandering
You are joy You are joy
You’re the reason that I sing
You are life You are life
In You death has lost its sting

Here’s the chorus. Let this be your prayer.

(Oh) I’m running to your arms
I’m running to your arms
The riches of Your love
Will always be enough
Nothing compares to Your embrace
Light of the world forever reign
