Do you feel it? That weight that is pressing down upon you? That load that is far too much to bear? I do. Or, I should say, I did. I had to let it go this morning. It was far too much for me. Some of it was worry over things I cannot control. Some of it was pressure over how ill-equipped I feel for the tasks at hand. But, some of it was also my sin. My unconfessed sin of frustration, anger, and ceaseless striving.
“Blessed is he whose transgression is forgiven, whose sin is covered. Blessed is the man to whom the LORD does not impute iniquity, and in whose spirit there is no deceit.” Psalm 32:1-2
What are we to do when the load is too deep and too wide? Dump it. Not just anywhere…but dump it at the ONLY place that can cover all that weight and sorrow and sin. Lay it all down right there at the Cross of Christ. Why wait?
