Mt 11:28-30 Come to Me

In today’s gospel Jesus says: Come to me, especially if you are weary or carry a heavy burden – I will give you rest. My yoke is easy; my burden is light.

3 Invitations from Jesus: 3 C’s
1. Center of our life: Jesus invites us to make him the center of our life. That he becomes the ultimate authority; we voluntarily yield to his will. He takes control. He becomes the manager of our life.
 
2. Companion for life: Jesus also invites us to accept him as our lifelong partner. We make him our Shepherd who will always be there for us. He will never leave us for he will walk with us through life faithfully. With him by our side, we shall not fear.
 
3. Comfort and Strength: Jesus proposes that we come to him for comfort and strength. Though we have our own struggles and difficulties in life, we can count on him. “For those who trust in the Lord shall renew their strength. They shall fly with eagles’ wings; they shall run and not be weary” says Prophet Isaiah.
