“Come unto me, all ye that labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.” Matthew 11:28

Summer is approaching. And with all the enjoyment that comes with summer, it also brings us a great deal of work to do, chores that we can’t or don’t need to do during the winter months. And there is nothing much better than sitting back and relaxing after a hard day’s work, resting in the satisfaction that the job is done. Life can be difficult. Because of the challenges that face us, it is often a struggle just to get through another day. And because God knows the weakness of our flesh, He has provided for us a place of perfect rest, and it is found in His Son, Jesus Christ. Jesus Christ is the place of refreshing when life struggles seem too much to bear. Jesus Christ is the One, the only One, who is able to remove our burdens or lighten the load when we begin to stumble under the weight that we may be called upon to carry. And all that He requires is for us to come to Him and receive it. Do you need a place of rest today? There is no need for you to carry the burden yourself. Go to God’s Son in faith, confess your need of Him, and you will find all of the rest that you will ever need.
