A32: The Fifth Sunday after Pentecost, Year A (2020)

Jim Somerville

“It is a relief after chapter 10 to come to Matthew 11:25-30,” says Jim Somerville, pastor of Richmond’s First Baptist Church and Co-Founder of A Sermon for Every Sunday. “Come to me all you that are weary and carrying heavy burdens and I will give you rest. It’s one of the best known and best loved passages in all of scripture,” he says. But what comes next is more difficult. “My yoke is easy and my burden is light.” Carrying a cross is a light burden? Listen as Somerville explores what it means for Jesus’s burden and our burden to be light.
