Rest For Weary Souls

Thought For Today: “Rest For Weary Souls”

“There remains therefore a rest for the people of God.” (Hebrews 4:9)

Jesus tells us of this rest that is always available through Him. He said, “Come to Me, all you who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Take My yoke upon you and learn from Me, for I am gentle and lowly in heart, and you will find rest for your souls.” (Matthew 11:28-29)

But Jesus gives us an even further rest saying, “These things I have spoken to you, that in Me you may have peace. In the world you will have tribulation; but be of good cheer, I have overcome the world.” (John 16:33)

While we can have peace because of Jesus’s victory over death and the ruler of this world, there still remains a rest that’s waiting.

What is that rest? It’s the hope of heaven. We can rest as believers in the hope that this life is not all there is. There’s an eternal life of rest waiting for us in heaven. It’s a rest from sin and evil, as we’ll live in the presence of the Lord forever.

‘He will wipe every tear from their eyes. There will be no more death’ or mourning or crying or pain, for the old order of things has passed away … There will be no more night. They will not need the light of a lamp or the light of the sun, for the Lord God will give them light. And they will reign for ever and ever.” (Revelation 21:4; 22:5)
