There are millions of people today who feel overworked and under appreciated. Our world wants to churn out more product, more profit, at the cost of what?
It has been said that the appreciated worker will do more. I am paraphrasing, of course, but it is true. Even a beaten horse will lie down and not take anymore at some point.
What if we realized there is one who will take any amount of beating, because He already has? Jesus Christ was beaten to a bloody, unrecognizable human being. Then, He carried His cross a mile where they threw Him down, beat Him some more and then nailed His Hands and Feet to the wood!! And at the beginning of it all, He said, Father, forgive them. They weren’t seeking His grace, His forgiveness. They were working Him to His death. But His death set Him free to live in the hearts of those of us who believe in Him.
Jesus Christ can never be overworked! Even when they thought they killed Him, He got up, folded his burial sheet and walked away! And that power of never being overworked is available to all of us today. His Holy Spirit can live inside each and every one of us. All we need to do is ask.
His yoke is light. He has taken our burden of sin and death already. Do we honestly believe that there is no other burden He can’t handle? Cast your cares on Him today, for He cares for you. Do not be overworked by the lies of sin and Satan. He cannot be a thief in the night if we are focused on The Light.
