I wonder just where Jesus was when He said “Come to me if you are tired and I will give you rest.” (Matt 11:28) I suspect He was standing on the corner of Over-worked Avenue and Mistreated Street, just across from Religion Park and around the corner from Disappointment Plaza.
During his totally sinless life He faced all the negative emotions that affect the human race because He was fully human. Yet He was still able to wrap it all up with the prayer “Nevertheless, not my will but thine be done.” (Luke 22:42)
Then He went to the cross with love in his heart for every one who had a part in his death. And the Holy Spirit will give us the power to love others in spite of the lying, cheating, intolerance and cruelty we face so often in this life.
If Jesus could do it…….
