How amazing

So I'm reading Matthew 11.

There's a lot going on, of course...Jesus is answering John the Baptist's questions about Him. Yes. Even John the Baptist doubted. He rebukes that generation of people and then gives stinging woes to cities around the area. Things like "it will be more tolerable for Sodom in the day of judgment than for you." Wow.

Then, after all that, Jesus says to these same people:
"Come to Me, all who are weary and heavy laden, and I will give you rest."

Jesus' invitation is not new to me, but i had forgotten the context. God desires that people come to Him. How is that possible? I haven't murdered anyone, but my heart is wicked and dark and yet..."Come to Me" Jesus says.
