Get Back To Your Burdens

“Get back to your burdens!” was Pharaoh’s angry response to the request of Moses and Aaron to let their people go (Exodus 5:4). The enemy of our soul responds in kind to the sinner saved by grace.

“Get back to your burdens!” It is the threatening command of our old taskmaster heard after a sinful mistake. He hopes to convince us that we will always be subject to his every command.

“Get back to your burdens!” It is the whip he cracks to keep his slaves in place. It is the demand that causes us to cower in fear unless we know Grace.

Grace that says, “Come to me, ye who labor and are heavy laden and I will give you rest.” It is the call of the Jesus to every one who knows the sharp sting of sin’s cruel whip. “I’ll take your burdens and give you mine.”

“Get back to your burdens!” It is the threatening demand of that which no longer possess you.

Your burdens were rolled onto your Savior at Calvary’s cross. His yoke is easy and His burden is light. Don’t pick up what you laid down. Get back to His burdens.
