Wednesday, September 6 & Sunday, September 10, 2017 Message By: Pastor Bam Lauvao Series: Baggage and Burdens ​ ​ "HAVING A BURDEN REMOVER!" 2 TYPES OF BURDENS SELF-INFLICTED BURDEN GOD-INFLICTED BURDEN = THE BURDEN OF THE CROSS. I was given a thorn in my flesh, a messenger of Satan, to torment me. Three times I pleaded with the Lord to take it away from me. But he said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you,” (2 Corinthians 12:7-9 NIV) ​ HE WILL HELP YOU CARRY THE BURDEN! Come to Me, all who are weary and heavy-laden, and I will give you rest. Take My yoke upon you and learn from Me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For My yoke is easy and My burden is light. (Matthew 11:28-30 NASB) HOW TO FIND RELIEF IN GODLY BURDENS: 1. BRING THE BURDEN BACK TO JESUS. “Come to Me, all who are weary and heavy-laden, and I will give you rest. (Matthew 11:28 NASB) ​ 2. “YOKE-UP” WITH JESUS. Take My yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. (Matthew 11:29 NASB) For My yoke is easy and My burden is light. (Matthew 11:30 NASB) 3. LEARN FROM JESUS & FIND REST IN HIM. Learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. (Matthew 11:29 NASB) LESSON LEARNED: THE GLORY CAN BE FOUND ON THE GROUND. Life Group Discussion: What are some examples of the “self-inflicted” burdens you currently carry? How are you dealing with these types of burdens? What are some examples of the “God-inflicted” burdens you currently carry? How are you dealing with these types of burdens? What valuable lesson can we glean from JESUS stating “Come to Me?” When you’re “yoked-up” with JESUS, what are some of the valuable lessons learned from being yoked to Him?
