“Come to me, all of you who labor and are burdened, and I will give you rest.” When life overthrows us and feels as if it is too much to bear, we need a helper. Christ promises to be that help in Matthew when He speaks of taking up His yoke in partnership with Him. He emphasizes that His Yoke is secure, and His burden is light. When He says, “I am gentle and humble in heart,” He provides a model of the life of the helper.
In the hurdles, hurts, and sorrows of life, sometimes we find ourselves far from the One who can help us, the One who can provide rest for our souls. Many people are seeking help and encouragement to face life’s difficulties and challenges. Some have found some support elsewhere and have been disappointed with the results. We believe God provides answers and solutions through His Word and His people. When we understand life and its struggles from God’s perspective and then live that out ever more fully, we experience life in the healthy abundance Jesus came to give us. Our approach is not harsh legalism, judgmentalism, or focused on being over spiritualized, but based in solid Scriptural truth, and following after that humility that Christ asks of us.
