Gospel – 6/19/20 – Matthew 11:25-30
At that time Jesus exclaimed:
“I give praise to you, Father, Lord of heaven and earth,
for although you have hidden these things
from the wise and the learned
you have revealed them to little ones.
Yes, Father, such has been your gracious will.
All things have been handed over to me by my Father.
No one knows the Son except the Father,
and no one knows the Father except the Son
and anyone to whom the Son wishes to reveal him.
“Come to me, all you who labor and are burdened,
and I will give you rest.
Take my yoke upon you and learn from me,
for I am meek and humble of heart;
and you will find rest for yourselves.
For my yoke is easy, and my burden light.”
It was never about Jesus to Jesus. It was about what God had sent him to do – what only he could do.
That was to reintroduce the Created to the Creator. He also knew it wouldn’t be easy.
So, he told us to come to him when things got hard and he would take our place – our burdens would be his.
Then he went to the Cross and proved it.
At least that’s what I heard Him say…
