A man once told his friend he was in deep trouble. He used a well-known figure of speech to describe it. He said, “I’m at the end of my rope.” The figure means he was out of solutions to his problems. He didn’t know where to turn.
He isn’t alone.
People are in desperate trouble everywhere. According to the World Health Organization, 3.8 percent of the earth’s population has depression.
For those who consider themselves religious, there is also trouble. According to the Pew Research Center, government religious restrictions (or persecutions) have risen to their highest level since 2007.
During the COVID-19 pandemic, pressures have driven people into isolation where their problems are compounded and seem almost insurmountable.
Many have become fearful and nervous. They have endured several situations for so long they don’t know how, when, or where to get help. They feel lost, lonely, and vulnerable. What can they do?
Jesus has the answer. He said,
“Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke on you and learn from me because I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For my yoke is easy to bear, and my load is not hard to carry,” (Matthew 11:28-30).
There has never been a better time to go back to the Bible and find the salvation you need for your soul. Jesus offers the only help anyone could ever get. He has the answers to the most difficult problems in life.
One who needs his help, however, must go to him and obey his word. Find him now in the New Testament. Grab a copy and start reading and studying.
