When there’s so much unrest in the world, Jesus bids us to come rest in Him! This is a wearable reminder that you can always go to Jesus for the rest your soul needs.
Something to ponder …
The invitation is made to us today: “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.” Christ has rest to give us if we will wear his yoke and learn his meekness and lowliness. In this lesson is restraint and obedience and the finding of rest.
Thank God that in humility and obedience are found just what we all need so much—rest in faith, and confidence in perfect trust. In this we have not manufactured an oppressive yoke for our own necks. We have taken the yoke of Christ in entire obedience and He can then give us rest. We find in obedience that peace, that grace, and that assurance which make the reality ours. We have found rest in Jesus.
