We need to hear from her experts will be the law and in be in an Jesus Christ was the greatest teacher that there's ever been short, something only hands teacher denying the entity denying his sacrificial death for the salvation of sinners. We know that the talk of his work of redemption is crucial if were going to believe what the Scriptures teach and what he taught this extremely important talk on many things.
Look at a passage this morning containing some wonderful words of comfort and encouragement.
Matthew chapter 11, beginning with the 28th verse, to me, all ye that labor and are heavy like I give you rest. Take my milk upon you and learn of me for I am meat and lowly in heart, and you shall find rest unto your soul. These words are indeed words of hope, encouragement, and to me, take my puke upon you and learn of me for I am meek and lowly in heart, and you shall find rest unto yourself for my easy and my burden is light. First want to consider that this is a wonderful invitation Jesus Christ, the perfect man and God, Jesus Christ, the God man says, come on me is the one who can actually give you rest. You may been promise rest by the pursuit of various philosophy various forms of life, but is one that can not only make this promise, but fulfillment centers come to me and I will give you rest. What special words how gentle how loving, come unto me, and note the word all come unto me all he that labor and are heavy like Converse 27 of this chapter he had just spoken on the subject of sovereignty. Since all things are delivered in the me of my father and no man knows the son but the father need to know if any man. The father save her son and he to whomsoever the son will reveal him. This clearly points out that for one to come to truly truly know God is only through the work of Jesus Christ.
This must be by revelation, and that makes us think about the passage where Jesus said past the disciples who do you say that I am and Peter confess that thou art the Christ, the son of the living God and Jesus said flesh and blood hath not revealed this on the day with my father which is what punches to sovereignty approaches to the work of God bring about this great experience of salvation, bringing one into a personal relationship with Jesus Christ. So some might question.
Does that mean I might not be able to come because maybe I haven't chosen. I remember talking to a person. After we discussed the doctrine of predestination set. I don't know if I'm predestinate how I know I can come to Christ. That way you know is you, the apostle Paul said in writing the church at Thessalonica. No one brethren beloved your election of God.
You know that not their physical appearance by some other task but the fact that when he preached the gospel to them. They had received it. This being evidence that they were one that was chosen of God. So some might question cannot come here. These words commonly argue that labor and are heavy laden, can be one of those the word all the significant come unto me all ye that labor and are heavy laden, his word is, come now, Pam is to believe on him and to come is to leave one place and arrive at another show. I think that repentance and faith both indicated here, which is a chain, a change of mind change of heart. Paul is writing to the church at Thessalonica.
He never spoke with the fact that they receive the gospel message but they turned to serve the true and living God.
This is repentance turning from idolatry returning from any sinful practice. So he says, indicate movement, moving from one place to another. Repentance and faith, come with your birth, weighted down feel the weight of your own guilt before God, come the wall. Your questions are not answered that people say well I guess there's one thing I don't understand yet another question that you have answered all answered, anyway. Jesus says, and he speaks specifically all of those that labor and are heavy like the people in Jesus Davises. There are today who were laboring to keep. They had that idea we can do our part. If we can live in such a way that we are recommending ourselves to God all will be well for all who attempt work for their salvation. That is work that can never be accomplished with those in Jesus day influenced by the Pharisees are those today in any form of works program.
It's an impossibility to bring yourself into fellowship with Jesus Christ by your own works. Romans chapter 3 verse 19 says, now we know that what things whether the law saith it's safe for them that are under the law, that every mouth may be stopped. Compartment objectives and will I don't think I'm a like bad and I don't think I really am a guilty sinner before he says that every mouth may be stopped, and that all the world may become guilty before God.
Therefore, with the deeds of the law there shall no flesh be justified in his sight, for by the law is the knowledge turned the law would he see's the mark for the first commandment that Jesus summarizes in his words in the New Testament that would love the Lordů I'm not heart, soul and strength.
You can see that you failed just at the First Amendment have no other gods before the close by nature.
We are focused on self. Nothing we want to do what we wanted were not thinking about bringing honor and glory to fears, so we think about the fact that no flesh can be justified in his sight effort to keep the law.
We think in vivid contrast of what we find in the book of Isaiah chapter 55 verse one whole everyone that first, neither the locks he that hath no money company by an E gate, buy wine and milk without money and without price touched the poor man's market. If you see yourself impoverished.
You know you have nothing of God. You know there's no price that you can pay here is the place for you, hello everyone, let them come and that's what Jesus is saying here in the book of Matthew, on to me and to those who are heavy laden, Jesus condemned the Pharisees in Matthew chapter 23 verse four says, for they bind heavy burdens and grievance to be more and lay them on men's shoulders. They not only pressed people to keep the law, but they had numerous requirements of their own making. Says but they themselves will not move them with one of their finger all their works they do to be seen here.
These religious leaders. The self-righteous individuals who are imposing heavy burdens upon others would not try to lift the burden or help even with one of their fingers. They impose these rules upon others did not always observe them themselves. So Jesus said they draw anatomy with their lips, but their heart is far from the person comes to realize I am a sinner and the site of a holy God. I know that God demands perfection, and I would come close.
No, I deserve nothing but his wrath that is indeed a heavy burden, the burden of sin, the burden of guilt is heavy solutions, all ye that labor and are heavy like with think the words of David in Psalm 51 verse eight is is make me to hear joy and gladness that the bones which thou hast may rejoice.
The prophet pointed his finger at David and said, thou art the man he saw himself in, like, in which he had not previously been able to recognize what a sinner he wants it violated God's call. He committed adultery it arranges for Bathsheba's husband to die on the battlefield. Now he sees her surrender.
See his joy is gone it feels like his truck broke a person with a broken bone is in excruciating pain and I think that's the message conveyed here verse may have gone along very well, feeling that their syndrome covered or not being troubled by the when the Holy Spirit of God convicts an individual to see if the center he needs help he needs mercy. Oh, that painful experience can be equal to that even greater the pain than that of a broken bone about the experience of the one who is referred to as the product of sentiment chapter 15 verse 18 sport wandered far from home. It wasted his substance in riotous living was now feeding the swine which was a lonely place in that culture and excess time arrives.
He's awakened to the fact he's far from home is far from the father. PCN is wasted which was given to him to pieces.
I will arise and go to my father. I will send him father, I have sinned against heaven and before the end of no more worthy to be called by some hears true repentance of the wrong of going down the wrong path.
I'm guilty. I'm unworthy not worthy. Just make me as one of the diehards.
This product was heavy laden, heavy laden, talking to somebody today who is burden heavy laden with guilt. You know you have seen and nothing is hidden from the all seeing eye. He knows every detail about your actions every thought every monk. He noted that when you become keenly aware that you have sent the holy God of heaven. You become heavily here then a great blessing his promise. Jesus, as I will give you rest is not something that you deserve. Just like this one coming back didn't claim. I am entitled to something I deserve no dessert. Even the company has to make me one of your hearts are so Jesus says I will give you rest. It's not something you deserve. It's not something you can earn he gives it the word again. I will give you rest. He gives it according to his own rich sovereign mercy, overall health, become for mercy see I would be entitled to nothing but the wrath of God. But what I need is mercy. You can then say with the apostle Paul in the eternal life which God that cannot lie, promised before the world began, but Jesus gives you rest then say I am depending on something solid. The salvation which God promised before the world began, before you ever work in the world before the world itself and have a lady promise it and the fact is, God cannot lie, promised he's going to fulfillment can say with the hymn writer. My hope is built on nothing less than Jesus blood and righteousness at their not trust the sweetest frame, but only glean on Jesus name this rest is not based on the circumstances of the moment is not based on your emotion of the day it's based on the substitutionary death of Jesus Christ by nature, you were an enemy of God somehow has a preternatural little too far. Admitted. I haven't gone to church. I have read the Bible never thought of myself as being an enemy of God against God. But this is the way God describes the center and his natural state. He is the enemy of God is opposed to the ways of God. He doesn't want God to rule over says I want to know what the pursuit whatever makes me feel good. Whatever makes me happy is the enemy of God. Now income to Jesus Christ. There's a reconciliation that is canceled is painful and the substitutionary death of Jesus Christ now being reconciled, and you have peace. I will keep you asked noted he says come unto me, not to the legalistic puncture to the law, as did the Pharisees not to rules of self improvement, not to some humanistic concept of finding rest in peace through your own thoughts, positive thinking movement. Being brought back now calling it manifest the idea that if you just stick your mind and do something you really look at it. Think about meditate on it, clearly believing you can make it come to pass, so your answer to all your problems and found right within yourself that Jesus says come to me, even to the church that when one is come to Christ else come the church because he is the head of the build of a person could come to the church corporately and never have come to Christ. Jesus says come on to me.
Next, we observe Mark Economy. Take my yoke upon you, so much of my thought this is going to be restful. If you're taking on the you that indicates activity that indicates labor but you see, this speaks of submission and no longer going to chart their own course. I'm going to live under the yoke of Christ. My attitude is going to be thy will be done in earth, as it is in heaven.
I'm going to use those words that Jesus taught when he taught how to pray by will be done.
It speaks of a ranch in his service, the Christian will never find ranch in being finds his greatest rest and peace with actively serving Jesus Christ and Jesus says upon you, but my view is easy and my burden is light compared to the local sinful pleasure that you been bearing this yoke of following Jesus is light. This yoke is easy, my burden is light and he warm, comforting mission given from our Savior Jesus Christ. Come on to me. So those who are weary and heavy laden, are encouraged to come then when he speaks of his yoke being easy and explode like we find additional blessing as we follow in his service. Hope that you will take time to write or send remember where again today offering the booklet great and precious promises?
