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.

    Simply to believe, pray,praise and have faith in Jesus Christ daily.Then fast whenever the Holy spirit guides you too.Following Him as an example because that was His Nature.God bless you.
  • Rev. Booker T. Simmons's
    What I personal think of Matthew 11:30, is, when I have Jesus caring my yoke and burden, my load is lighter and burden is not heavy. Thank God for his gift in giving Jesus to forgive us for our sins. Jesus life death burial and resurrection is our redeeming life. May grace mercy and truth be with his believing people of God. Amen.
