Brother Jon Cardwell of Justification by Grace reminds us today, by way of Charles Spurgeon, where the Christian rolls his or her cares – upon Jesus Christ, in whom alone we find rest for these sin sick and battle weary souls. His yoke is easy. His burden is light. (Matthew 11:30).
“Oh! It is a happy way of smoothing sorrow, when we can say, ‘We will wait only upon God.’ Oh, you agitated Christians, do not dishonor your religion by always wearing a frown of concern; come, cast your burden upon the Lord. I see you staggering beneath a weight which He would not feel. What seems to you a crushing burden, would be to him nothing but a small amount of dust. See! The Almighty bends his shoulders, and he says, ‘Here, put your troubles here.’”
—Charles H. Spurgeon (1834-1892)
