Only Jesus Can Give Us Rest

“Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest.”
Matthew 11:28

I receive dozens of e-mails each day from my readers telling me that they are tired of being burdened down by the struggles of life. They are dealing with financial issues, relationship issues, health issues, and many other problems that I am sure you can relate to in your own personal life. In the scripture above Jesus tells us to come to Him, when we have troubles and trials in our life, and He will give us rest. We need to realize that when Jesus was human that He knew what it was like to be tired and weary. He had calluses on His hands. If the chisel slipped and cut His finger, His blood was red and warm like ours. He felt pain just like we do. He knew what it was like to work long hours, and to come in at night tired and weary. This is why Jesus can say with authority, “Come to me, and I will give you rest.” When we are exhausted and hurting, and the cares of this world have gotten the best of us, we can take comfort from the fact that Jesus knows what it was like to be exhausted and hurting also. But the greatest work Jesus did was not in the carpenter’s shop, nor was it at the marriage feast in Cana, where He turned the water into wine. The greatest work Jesus did was not when He made the blind man to see, the deaf to hear, the dumb to speak, nor even the dead to rise. So what was his greatest work? His greatest work was what He accomplished through the sacrifice He made for our sins. When He gave His life on the Cross to forgive us of our sins, and His gift of salvation, this was the greatest gift we will ever receive. On the Cross He gave us the opportunity to spend our eternity in Heaven, where we will no longer have to suffer, where our trials and troubles of this life will be no more. That is why we can come to Him, and He alone can truly give us rest.
