COME AND REST

"Come unto Me, all ye that labor 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."...Matthew 11:28-30
 
Whoever will, let him come. All who come will find peace and rest, but in coming we must take His yoke, and submit to His authority. Christ is not only our Savior, but also our Lord!
We should not fear His yoke, for His commandments are holy, just, and good. It requires self-denial, and exposes us to difficulties, but this is abundantly repaid, even in this world, by inward peace and joy.
It is a yoke that is lined with love.
So powerful are the assistances He gives us, so suitable the encouragements, and so strong the consolations to be found in the way of duty, that we may truly say, it is a yoke of pleasantness.
 
Then come to Jesus to find rest for your souls. – Matthew Henry
