Key Text: Matthew 11:28-30
Key Word: “Come to me all you who are weary and heavy laden and I will give you rest …….and you will find rest for your souls.”
Have you ever heard of a one-stop shop? I’m sure you have. There are many organisations that claim all you need to do is come to them and all your car, furniture, building, health, family, medical or whatever needs, will be met. The truth is, in my experience there has never been a truly one stop shop that has totally met all my so called needs.
But the concept is not at all bad and actually a desirable one. I wish there were truly one-stop shops for some of these things and we do not need many people to help solve our problems. But today, I want to introduce you to a TRUE ONE STOP SHOP, for all the needs, I mean real needs of man. If God is all-powerful, then there is nothing He cannot do. The scriptures tell us that God made all His fullness dwell in Jesus Christ bodily. So when you meet Jesus, you meet all that God is and all that God will do.
God endowed Jesus Christ with all the solutions for humanity. He has the answer to all man’s problems and is more than willing to dispense them. In my understanding according to the scriptures, all that ails mankind has been dealt with, healed and provided for full in Jesus Christ.
When you come to Jesus, you have come to the solution for all life’s problems. Is it health? He is the healer! Is it relationships? He is the restorer of broken hearts! Is it financial? He is the provider? Is it sin? He is the sin remover? Is it addiction? He is the deliverer who has come to set the captives free! Is it assurance of eternity? He is the saviour and in Him, eternal life is guaranteed! Is it pain? He bore our pains! Is it death? He is the giver of life! He is the resurrection and the life. Are you lost? He is the Shepherd who will lead you! Are you blind? He is the light of the world! What is it that ails you? Jesus Christ of Nazareth is God’s one stop shop to fix it!
Now the most amazing thing about this incredible provision of God, this one stop, one-man solution, is that is absolutely Free to you and I. We do not need any money to buy these solutions. We do not need any special passes to access these blessings. All we need is our faith. We are just to believe. Wow! Free, yes Free. It cost us nothing. Absolutely nothing, just believe.
Finally, Jesus is fully willing to help anyone who comes to Him. He has never turned back anyone and He has never disappointed anyone. He has promised that all who put their trust in Him will never be put to shame. Once you come to Jesus, you need never go to anyone else. This is the bus-stop. This is the last station. This is where it all ends. This is where all the answers are. In HIM.
God has made life simple. He has provided one source and only one source for you and I to access all He has for us. It is in the person of Jesus Christ, His only begotten Son. So come to Jesus today and I can promise you, He has all the solutions to all your problems and He is more than willing to help you and He will help you for nothing. No cost, because He had already paid for it for you to receive it.
Now what are you waiting for?
Let’s Pray: Father God, I want to thank you for making life simple. Thank you for sending Jesus Christ as the single solution to all of my problems. Today I reach out to Jesus for the solution to my problem and I believe I have the solution. In Jesus name. Amen.

It is truly this simple and man complicates life totally. I like this Ps Charles. Keep writing and many will receive their breakthroughs in knowing the TRUTH. Missing you and your preaching.
Thanks Daisey. How are you. Please pray for our church building project. We need lots of resources and grace to finish it this year. Love from Abi and the children. PCA
