A Big Burden

So today my family and I are moving. We are leaving Southwest Virginia and moving to Kentucky. Julie and the kids are in our minivan while I am driving a really big yellow truck, a 26' Penske moving truck to be precise. (A huge thanks to the Hall family for transporting our other car!) The trip takes about 4 1/2 hours. In the back of the 26' truck is the vast majority of our possessions. Clothes, furniture, electronics, kids toys, pictures, and all kinds of stuff. I bear the burden of all the things we have acquired and kept over the years. Some of you have moved before and you know this burden...but there are bigger burdens.

Several years ago Christ carried my burden on the cross. He took every sin I had ever committed and bore them on the cross. He took every sin I have yet to commit and bore them on the cross. I'm far from perfect. My burden must have been huge, but Christ bore it. Not only did He bear my burden, but He also bore your burden. Every sin you ever committed. Every sin you have yet to commit. All transported far from us. The burden of our sin is gone.

Rejoice your sin burden is removed!

all about Christ,
