Get Rest in Jesus Christ
Topic: Quality Time
Come unto me, all ye that labour 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 KJV)
Are you tired by the end of your day? If you have a physical disability, do you sometimes feel like if God don't care about your needs? We sometimes would have a time of rejection about our goals. I know this because I've been there. But we often forget to get rest in God and make ourselves tire of following our own daily routine. We often think going to church on every Sunday is a day of rest and entertain ourselves with our Christian brothers and sisters.
God created the Sabbath Day, so we can rest in the Lord. Sabbath day doesn't have to be on a certain day of the week. Sunday is a Sabbath day for Christians, which it actually came from the Paganism that worship the sun god. There is a historical documention, which one of Catholic Popes selected Sunday as a Sabbath day for Christian, not on Saturday that was originally arrived from Genesis 2.
Fortunately, Jesus gave us another defination for Sabbath. He explains us that we can have rest in Him. Notice, He didn't say that Sunday has to be a day of rest, but if we just come into His presence, He will give us His yoke that is not heavy for us to grab on. That is why we can trust Him to go and rest in His presence at anytime or anyday of the week.
Are you tired? God is not going to let you to suffer for a long time. He is willing to give you His yoke to rest upon, if you let Him.
