Wesley's Notes for Matthew 11:28

11:28 Come to me - Here he shows to whom he is pleased to reveal these things to the weary and heavy laden; ye that labour - After rest in God: and are heavy laden - With the guilt and power of sin: and I will give you rest - I alone (for none else can) will freely give you (what ye cannot purchase) rest from the guilt of sin by justification, and from the power of sin by sanctification.

People's Bible Notes for Matthew 11:28

Mt 11:28 Come unto me. This is one of the sweetest passages in the New Testament. It shows the willingness of the Lord. The kings and earth and the great are usually difficult of access, while Jesus is not only willing, but invites us, to come to him. Note how gracious is the invitation! (1) It is the Lord who speaks. (2) He invites to come to him. (3) The invitation is to those who labor and are heavy laden. (4) He promises, to all these weary ones who come, rest. The offer is not that of a man, but of the Divine Savior. Millions in all ages since can bear witness that the promise is sure. That labour and are heavy laden. Feel heavily the burdens of life, of sin and sorrow. Rest. Peace of soul.

    I' m to be yoked up with my Lord and Savior Jesus Christ and to be yoked with believers : to not be unequally yoked with unbelievers : I can have no fellowship with the works of darkness : not possible. I get myself yoked up with Jesus : we have fellowship and working toward a common goal !!! With believers in Lord Jesus Christ we are going and doing good !!
