Rest in Jesus

Many people in our world live at a very fast pace. They are always busy. These people work and play and never rest. They forget that eventually they will burn out. When that happens, these people may become very tired or sick.
Jesus is our source of rest. Verse 28 of our Bible Reading says, “Come to me all of you who are tired from the heavy burden you have been forced to carry. I will give you rest.”
Jesus wants His followers to have both physical and spiritual rest. When we rest physically, our bodies become stronger. When we rest spiritually, we allow Jesus to accept our burdens and help us. Often Jesus withdrew from His ministry and went to a place where He could be alone and pray to God. That is a good example for us.
I encourage you to rest in Jesus today. Find a quiet place where there is no TV, Internet or electronic devices to distract you. Share your burdens with Jesus, and allow Him to give you rest.
