“I will give you rest … you will find rest for your souls”


Jesus’ invitation to those who are weary from carrying heavy burdens and stress is one which many of us fail to grasp.


We long for the rest Jesus promises and of which many others speak, but it escapes us because we do not attend to the RSVP on the invitation.


The RSVP is: Take my yoke upon you.


Rest comes not to those who long for it in Jesus’ name, but to those who yoke themselves to Jesus, letting Him carry their burdens.  


If you are weary and stressed, stop running around like a chicken with it’s head cut off praying, “Jesus help me, I am tired.”


Instead of running around Jesus, frantically reaching out to Him, stop and link yourself to Him.  Then, and only then, will you find rest for your souls.


Come to me, all who weary 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. (1)
