CHRIST IS OUR ANSWER

"Come to me"

There was a popular commercial for an antacid that asked the question: “How do you spell relief?” To ask it from a Christian believer’s standpoint, there is only one answer. The relief from worry and anxiety…relief from the problems and difficulties of daily life…relief from temptations and sin…It can only be spelled C-H-R-I-S-T.

Some icons of our Lord depict Him holding an open book, highlighting this famous quotation: “COME TO ME, ALL YOU WHO ARE WEARY AND BURDENED, AND I WILL GIVE YOU REST.” (Matthew 11:28) Life is often a tremendous struggle. Trials and tribulations must be dealt with constantly. Even the strongest of individuals needs assistance in dealing with the pressures of living in what is often a cold, cruel world.

How comforting it is to know that Christ is ALWAYS there for us! He will never abandon those who faithfully follow Him. As the Psalmist tells us: “THE LORD IS OUR STRENGTH AND OUR SONG AND HAS BECOME OUR SALVATION.” We can ALWAYS rely on His grace and His love, which will see us through the darkest of times.

“COME TO ME!” Christ never forces Himself upon us, but He does invite all of us to take up His offer. Relief will truly be ours if we accept this blessed invitation!
