Rest

One difference between Christ and all other alternative beliefs and religions is that He offers rest. Other beliefs call you to work — they provide a list of things you must do to be one of their followers. But when Jesus called people to follow Him, He declared:

“Come to me, all who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you, and learn from me, for I am gentle and lowly in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light.”

…Come and rest. Find rest from your work for salvation. Find rest from your burdens and weariness. This afternoon this song reminded me of this beautiful, peaceful, truth. In Christ we find rest from our burdens.
