Jesus said “Come to Me, all you who labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest” Mathew chapter 11 verse 28.
What a wonderful invitation, and it will be honoured. It is the Lord Jesus who invites you:
- Come what a welcoming word at the best of times. Not “Go”, not ”Leave” but “Come”.
- to Me we are to come to the only One who know us and cares for us.
- all you who labour and are heavy laden all are included and with all the burdens of sins and loads of our broken lives
- and I will give you rest what more can we wish for? Rest from sin and self and to enter into rest now (peace with God) and an eternal rest in heaven itself.
I heard the voice of Jesus say, “Come unto Me, and rest;
Lay down, thou weary one, lay down thy head upon My breast.”
I came to Jesus as I was, weary, and worn, and sad;
I found in Him a resting-place, and He has made me glad.
Come to Christ and enjoy a Blessed Monday.
