Commentary from Pastor Michael White:  

For my iniquities have gone over my head; like a heavy burden they are too heavy for me. – Ps 38:3

Your sins are too heavy for you; so why not let Jesus carry them? He is willing. He cares for you:

Therefore humble yourselves under the mighty hand of God, that He may exalt you in due time, casting all your care upon Him, for He cares for you. – 1 Peter 5:6-7

Aren’t you tired of trying to carry your own weight? Aren’t you tired of trying to do everything yourself? Come to Jesus! He will take on everything you cannot carry. He will give you rest:

“Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. 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. For my yoke is easy and my burden is light.” – Matt 11:28-30

When you turn to Jesus, He separates you from your sin, “as far as the East is from the West” (Ps 103:12). Are you ready to be free from the weight of your sin, once and for all?

Prayer:

Father, I believe in Your Son Jesus Christ! Thank You that faith in Him is all I need to be separated from my sins – forever. I am free! Thank You for Your easy yoke and your light burden, in Jesus’ name.
