FOCAL TEXT: Matthew 11 vs 28 ►► “Come to Me, all you who labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.”~》NKJV》
SHALOM greetings, Cherished one. During the earthly ministry of Jesus Christ, He saw the destitution and corruption of mankind without Him. And Jesus knew He was the only solution to the restlessness and weariness of humanity. But Jesus did not wait for restless souls to come to Him, rather He first came to them. And He described them as those who labour; meaning those who are tired and exhausted in life. He also used the word “heavy laden”, which implies carrying heavy loads and burdens.
Sin is a heavy a load. Unbelief is a heavy load. A life without Christ is meaningless and restless. Beloved, Jesus looked at the spiritual state of humanity, not only the physical. So do not look at the wealth, riches or health of a person in the natural and conclude that he is okay. No, If he does not have Jesus as Saviour, the person is not alright. He is restless and carrying spiritual loads, burden of sin and its effects.
But the good news is that Jesus is the rest giver. He refreshes you from the weariness of life and the power of the devil. Remember, the rest that Jesus gives cannot be found anywhere in this world. The Greek word for rest implies refreshment, stop or quit. He stops you from the direction of sin and the devil; and He becomes your rest. That is why Jesus should be your “last stop” to enjoying life. Yes, Jesus is the Rest who gives you total rest. Have you believed in the Rest Giver? Do so now before it becomes too late. The rich grace of our Lord Jesus Christ abounds towards you always.
Dear Lord Jesus, I thank You for the total rest that comes from You. I am no more heavy laden and weary because You are my Rest and rest giver. I graciously abound in Your grace to walk in Your rest forevermore. Hallelujah !
Thank the Lord for given you total rest in Christ.
