Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest (Matthew 11:28 NIV).
Rest is being relaxed or released from stress. Rest can be accomplished by placing hope, trust, and confidence in someone.
Many times people have said that they need to get away to their favorite vacation spot at the Beach or Mountains for rest. This rest is only temporary if we have not found the rest in Jesus Christ. This rest is a peace that calms worries and concerns.
In the 11th chapter of Matthew is where Jesus invites all to come to Him if they are weary ( mentally and physically exhausted). Weariness comes by trying to handle problems on your own. Not just your problems but everyone else’s problem.
Come to Jesus not just if you are weary but if you are burdened. Burdens are the troubles of life. Burdens can be anyone or anything that causes you to be bound, and hinders your walk of faith.
Jesus gives us “rest”.
