When we look at the meaning of what burden means we see just how much God loves us by sending His only begotten Son to be our burden bearer! ( Isaiah 53:4-6 ).
Burden- Something oppressive or worrisome, a heavy load to carry, duty of responsibility, troublesome, overwhelming.
We are instructed by Jesus to learn of Him and by doing so we will find rest for our souls. ( Matthew 11:28-30 ). 28 Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. 29 Take my yoke upon you, and learn of me; for I am meek and lowly in heart: and ye shall find rest unto your souls. 30 For My yoke is easy, and My burden is light.
We fulfill the law of Christ when we bear one another’s burdens. ( Galatians 6:1-2 ).
May we learn to trust the one who bore all our sins and nailed all the burdens of this life to the cross!
Psalm 55:22 Cast thy burden upon the LORD, and he shall sustain thee: he shall never suffer the righteous to be moved.
