Matthew 11:25–30 (NKJV, Luke 10:21-24)

25 At that time Jesus answered and said, “I thank You, Father, Lord of heaven and earth, that You have hidden these things from the wise and prudent and have revealed them to babes. 26 Even so, Father, for so it seemed good in Your sight. 27 All things have been delivered to Me by My Father, and no one knows the Son except the Father. Nor does anyone know the Father except the Son, and the one to whom the Son wills to reveal Him. 28 Come to Me, all you who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. 29 Take My yoke upon you and learn from Me, for I am gentle and lowly in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. 30 For My yoke is easy and My burden is light.”

Jesus here gives a call to salvation.  He expounds the virtue of simplicity and child-like faith.  The wise and prudent are not privileged to receive salvation on the basis of their ability or talents.  Instead, salvation comes to those who come to God as a child, with blind faith and submission.  The heavy laden, the weary, the hard-working will have rest.  They will have an easy yoke and a light burden.  They will find salvation from their heavy life.  Look for the one who can liberate you and bring you rest.  Jesus is that One!
