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.

Discussion for Matthew 11

  • Michael W. Gephart
    Here is how I interpret Math, 11:11. Jesus taught that we don't go to heaven just as we are.
    We must first be "transformed" into more "perfect" beings. He pointed out that, even though John the Baptist was the most "perfect" man who ever walked the face of the earth, compared
    to the least ("transformed") person in heaven, he is still "lesser".

    Matthew 11 is far reaching and very revealing. Our Lord Jesus Christ gave a food for thought

    Let there be no doubt in any true believers heart or mind that it is and alway's has been the religious folks or people who will speak all manner of false accusation's, persecute and put you to death. As it was in the early church, so will it be in like manner. God bless you. Shalom yedda dim.

    Chuck, May I ask, who are you calling "self righteous religionists?"
  • Chuck
    praise the lord jesus christ died for sinners self righteous religionists
    are trying to work there way to GOD AND HEAVEN HOW BLIND
  • Stephen F. Zielski
    The reason that the least in the Kingdom of Heaven and of the Kingdom of God is greater than John the Baptist is because, our Blessed Lord and Savior Christ Yeshua Jesus is truly Glorified and seated at our Heavenly Abba Dad and God Almighty Yahweh Elohim's Right Hand now and forever more, Glory Amen and Amen. He is truly the Fifth Cup revealed in our day and time who will be sent to Baptize His chosen elect Zion with the everliving Fire of His Holy Spirit as He is truly our Blessed Lord's Minister of Fire indeed and, get them up and running once again in part, to His everlasting Glory now and forever more, Glory Amen and Amen indeed. SHALOM ISRAEL ZION ! COME LORD YESHUA ! God Bless you. Shalom yedda dim beloved one .
