We can site different ways to spend a day of rest. Many of us think that as we carry so much stress, burden, and weariness, finding rest will cost us money and will require much effort. But after we get this rest, we return to our previous condition: weary. Because what we get is rest that is designed by man. So how can we really get that real rest for our soul? Jesus said:
Matthew 11:28-29 (NIV)
28 “Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. 29 Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls.”
Coming into a relationship with Jesus Christ is the key to receive real rest. Rest is neither achieved nor bought. It is freely given by Christ to those who believe. Trust Jesus today and put all your burdens unto Him. Learn that in the midst of burden you can find Jesus giving rest for your soul.
