The Gospel Reminder for Isaiah 1:4 Weighed-down with Sin
The Gospel reminds me that those who are weighed-down with sin are the ones to whom Jesus says,
Come to me, all who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. 29 Take my yoke upon you, and learn from me, for I am gentle and lowly in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. 30 For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light.” – Matt. 11:28-30 (1)
Some of your burden might be the weight you carry because of the sins of others (sins committed against you), but if you are honest – with God’s help – you could admit that the vast majority of your burden is your own sin.
Cast it off. Repent. Be saved. Rejoice in God’s saving work through Jesus for you.
