Christ lifts all burdens

[Original in Indonesian]

Today, as in Jesus' day, there are many people who work hard and are burdened by troubles. One person may suffer from a serious and chronic illness. Another may lack money—a lack that seems like a load to him because it has reduced his standard of living to poverty. Someone else may be faced with the death of a family member. Many more are weighed down because they do not understand the words of Christ Jesus, the Master of Christians, when he says: "Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest." Matt. 11:28.

The Bible tells of people who came to him and found relief from their heavy loads. A Canaanite woman once asked him to help her daughter, who was possessed by a devil and suffering greatly. At once the child was well. Also, a leper came, bowed down before him, and asked for his help. Jesus cleansed the leper. See Matt. 15:22—28; Matt. 8:2, 3. And many others came to him, and they all found relief.

Is God's gift of abundance a miracle?
