Come unto me, all ye that labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Matthew 11.28.

The Israelites in the ancient time only expected to have their burden lightened by Pharaoh instead of expecting total rest from their burden. The condition of the Israelites may represent the condition of the people today. As they had only hoped for their burden to be lightened but not lifted, so men today ask merely for a lighter burden and less worry. Let me declare that what the Lord Jesus Christ gives is not less labor but total rest. Do you know what rest is? It means a ceasing from work. You who are bound by sins and pressed with many burdens have no rest. Then know that the Lord Jesus came to give you rest. You need not do anything; He will simply give it to you.
