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

    Lou; we should never confess defeat when it comes to our salvation, and the things that the Scriptures PLAINLY tell us we have in Christ! Saved from our sins, complete deliverance and freedom and all provided for pertaining to life and piety! The enemy is a liar, and goes about seeking whom he may devour with his lies! Don't listen to him! Believe the Word!

    Penni, we all fall short, because we judge, our nature is sinful. We must strive to be good, and..we will fail, we will never measure up, but we should try anyway. No action on our part, no changes we make, no sacrifice is worthy..we are fallen. Only through Christ, and not through our own doing are we saved, we will still fail, when we believe, but the power of Jesus (God) is above all things.
  • Penni Carter
    Jesus is so clear about our walk in trusting him, but He is also very clear in His stance regarding judgment. We have it easier because Jesus came to the earth in the form of a man to show us how to live. Is it really any wonder that our judgment will be much harder considering we had the truth as a living example. I pray for mercy and grace for our souls. Our world needs to repent.
