Rest


Come unto Me, . . . and I will give you rest.


Matthew 11:28


Do you ever get tired or feel the need for rest? We are a weary people because we rush from one activity to the other. We work long hours and fill our calendars with too many obligations. The fact that we need rest makes this invitation from the Lord Jesus so very appealing.


Look at v 29, “rest for your souls”. He is not talking about physical rest, but He is talking about spiritual rest. Most people are weary in their spirits today. Many are troubled and agitated in their souls, and they try to find rest in all the wrong places. Some look to a bottle or a pill, friends, a pleasure, entertainment, a job, or to money. People look everywhere and try everything in the effort to find rest for their souls. No thing and no one in this world can give you the peace and rest you seek.


While people run here and there trying to find peace, the Lord Jesus says, so simply and so calmly, “Come unto Me, and I will give you rest.” There is a place of rest; a place of quietness; a place of peace and His name is Jesus. He invites you to come to Him to find the rest your soul seeks. People are looking, running, seeking, struggling, striving, fighting, loving, rushing, searching all in an effort to find what only Jesus Christ can give.


There is a place of rest for the weary soul, and that place of rest is Jesus Christ.


Are you worn out from trying to serve the Lord in the power of your flesh?

Are you worn out and weary from your burden of sin?


There is rest in Jesus for those who will come to Him. Hear His words: “Come to Me, all you who labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.
