Jesus said, "Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest." (Matthew 11:28 NIVUK) REST: What Christ offers is Refreshing, Energising, Soothing and Therapeutic – R.E.S.T. And, notice this, He "gives" that rest to those who seek Him. You don’t need to work for it, and cannot ever earn it. Even if you were the richest person on the planet, you could not afford to purchase it. It is a gift of grace to God’s people. Christ has done all the hard work, so that we can REST. He has paid the price, so that we can REST. To receive that REST, all we need do is empty our hands of the stuff that clutters up our lives, and open our hearts to Him fully.
