Billy Graham – Evangelist
Tonight I want you to turn with me to the 11th chapter of Matthew. The 11th chapter of Matthew.
Matthew 11:28-30: ‘Come unto Me, all ye that labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Take My yoke upon you and learn of Me; for I am meek and lowly in heart, and ye shall find rest under your souls, for My yoke is easy and My burden is light.’
I want to speak tonight on the ‘University of Life’. I want to speak to young people as well as older people on the subject of the ‘university of life’.
Now, we usually think of this text that a pastor will take and use at Labor Day. But that’s wrong in one sense, and yet in another sense, it is correct.
But this is an invitation to men and women who are exhausted with the search for truth. Jesus said, ‘You’ve been searching for truth. You’re tired. I am the Way, the Truth and the Life. You’ve found it. The search ends with Me.’
Now, at this university we’re talking about tonight, you can fail, but you can never drop out. All over the world, people are beginning to ask questions about where civilization is headed.
