Ever since I first read about camels coming in handy in India, I’ve been intrigued. When I think of camels caravanning across the desert, I think of the Middle East, not India. But I have discovered that camels are used in northern Rajasthan to navigate the desert terrain, some of the hottest and driest in all of India. They are also used to pull plows and carry heavy loads of goods from one place to another. Can you imagine seeing a camel pulling a plow?
The more I thought about these incredible animals, the more another thought came to mind. Of all the loads camels can carry, there is one that they cannot carry for the people of Rajasthan. It’s the burden of sin and guilt. Every one of us has one. When we believe in Jesus and accept that His death paid the debt we owed to God for our mistakes, we turn that burden over to Him. He carried it Himself on the cross, and He paid the debt in full. But most of the more than 68 million people of Rajasthan do not know that. Fewer than .1% of them understand how much Jesus loves them and that He alone can carry the heaviest burden of all.
Please pray with me that all the people of Rajasthan will turn their burdens over to Jesus Christ.
