Isn't this picture wonderful? It really got me thinking!
At first the following scripture came to mind.
"Come to Me, all you who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest."
He is only carrying the woman's burdens/bags?
Why was that?
Did she hand them over more willingly/they were too heavy?
OR...was her faith in Him stronger?
Did the man perhaps consider, he was capable of carrying his own load.
Do you think perhaps as a man, be felt responsible for himself.
Tell me your thoughts as you look at this picture.
Does it give you courage to continue on?
Does it help you to know we can hand our burdens over to Jesus?
To me, this illustration depicts peace and security in a risen Saviour....
Salvation has nothing to do with a Denomination/Religion. ..
But it does have to do with Jesus Christ....
The only one, who defeated death, to give those who believe, Eternal Life.
What a Sacrifice of Love.
"Surely he hath borne our griefs, and carried our sorrows:
yet we did esteem him stricken, smitten of God, and afflicted.
But he was wounded for our transgressions,
he was bruised for our iniquities:
the chastisement of our peace was upon him;
and with his stripes, we are healed."Isaiah 53: 4-5
** What interesting replies...Thank you...Body Of Christ.
When I looked and looked again at this picture I can see the woman is actually holding what looks like a brief case under her arm?
So she didn't give up all.
Yes, Jesus teaches us to be a servant! Yet a servant usually walks behind.
Jesus is a servant and as such carries the load.
However, He is striding ahead, showing the way...
There is another lesson here.
Will we allow Him to lead?
Or....will we be lazy like sheep and follow just for the sake of it?
Or....will we gladly and enthusiastically follow with a thankful heart.
There is much to contemplate on!!
