The Rest Connection

Matthew 11:28, "Come to Me, all you who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. 29 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. 30 For My yoke is easy and My burden is light.”

This is one of the greatest promises in the Bible! 

Connecting with Christ eases our burdens and brings “rest for your soul.” The only “catch,” is that we accept the “yoke” or partnership with Jesus. A yoke is a device that joined two oxen so that they could work together to pull a plow.

Being joined with Jesus is the best possible partnership! I call it “The Rest Connection.” To “rest” means to “use the power of another.”

We all have responsibilities and things to do that are sometimes difficult. We don’t have to go it alone and wear ourselves out. Partner with Christ and let the power of God help you.
