The Beauty of the Gospel Invitation

No sweeter words were ever uttered on this earth than these words by our Lord Jesus:

"Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest." (Mt 11:28 AV)

The weary soul needs rest. The heart burdened with fear and guilt needs rest. The person who is beaten down with weakness and sorrow needs rest.

This is not an invitation for the proud, the strong, the arrogant, or the person who is full of himself. This is for the weary of the earth.

The rest He promises is forgiveness of sins, mercy, understanding, and renewal.

"But they that wait upon the LORD shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; and they shall walk, and not faint." (Isa 40:31 AV)
