Come all unto Christ, and He will give You rest.

12 Jan


Matthew 11:28-30, “Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you, and learn of me; for I am meek and lowly in heart: and ye shall find rest unto your souls. For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light.”

It is always and extreme blessing to know that Jesus Christ is not so distant from Us, that in times of need He can comfort Us in all Our trials and tribulations. The scripture above lays the foundation of the Christian Faith by Our Lord, if We read between the lines of just what Jesus was saying. Christ states “Come unto Me,” which is Jesus revealing that He is the only way to Salvation and to be made right in the eyes of God. “All ye that labour and are heavy laden,” which refers to those unsaved who are trying to find comfort in anything other than Jesus Christ and His perfect sacrifice. Only to be met with heartache and rejection.

“I will give you rest,” is speaking of the access unto Salvation and favor by God, with placing ones Faith in His perfect sacrifice. “Take My yoke upon you,” is denying Yourself of Your own willpower to be all in total submission unto God (Luke 9:23). Then Jesus states, “And learn of Me.” This process is learning of just what the Crucifixion means to the Believer, which can be read in (Romans 6:3-5). “For I am meek and lowly in heart,” is Jesus saying that He is all understanding in each and every of Our situations. “And ye will shall find rest unto your souls,” the rest for anyone can come only by Faith in Christ and His perfect sacrifice for all sin.

“For my yoke is easy, and My burden is light,” is Jesus stating that their is little required of Us except that we believe that by simply placing Our Faith in the Cross of Christ, is sufficient enough. Faith that Our sin debt has been paid and that we no longer are held captive unto it is all that is needed. Truly believe that You are now dead to sin and that the Cross affects Your life in every way for the good, is the true rest that all Mankind needs. Shalom…
