The Daily Grace - Jesus Lifts our Burdens


Just like a rescuer who rescues a victim in a near-death situation, Jesus will do it the same for us when He sees us that we're giving up in our lives. In fact, He already rescued us two thousand years ago. He already rescued us from the clutches of sin by His death and resurrection. We are freed from the death of sin.

When Jesus sent the twelve disciples to carry out His work, He gave them the assignment to preach the good news of God's desire to rescue people (Luke 9:1-6). They would not carry this out in their own strength, but Jesus would lift the heavy burden of people's sin as they taught about Him. Their preaching and healing in Jesus' power and authority proved that Jesus had actually brought God's rule to earth.

Many today are trapped under the weight of sin, but our great God can rescue us from underneath those burdens. And then, send us into the world to tell others that He can set them free. Those who've been rescued from sin are best able to help in the rescue of others. Aim to rescue someone in your daily walk with Him.
