“Let Me Help You”

When we are young and hear “Let me help you” the first thing we say is

“No I can do it by myself”. It is a built-in response that we all seem to have. As we

get older we tend to let someone give us a hand a little easier. With age and

experience we realize that help is a precious thing. That we are better off when

we have support.

Jesus came to earth with the words “Let me help you” as His mission. He

came to give us support in places that human hands wouldn’t work. Namely in the

forgiveness of our sin. But our pride continues to tell us “We can do this by

ourselves” and we push Him away. I think of the hours of trials and burdens we

carry just because we won’t let Jesus into our hearts.

Jesus tells us in Matthew 11:28-30:

28  “Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give

you rest.  29  Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and

humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls.  30  For my yoke is easy

and my burden is light.”

That is the first step in a mature faith life, letting Jesus in when He says, “I

will help”. Learning that when we do life His way, we will find rest. The yoke of

slavery to sin is a heavy burden to carry. We seem to hold on to it like it is our

duty. Jesus says give up your old ways and start anew.

You don’t have to wait till you are older to start allowing Jesus to help,

take my advice the younger you start the more peace you will have.
