Topic: ABSOLUTE REST IN CHRIST
Text: Matthew 11:28-30 KJV
28 Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.
29 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.
30 For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light.
The death of Jesus Christ is worth celebrating but with understanding. His death and resurrection brought a complete and unimaginable revolution to mankind, one of such revolution is peace and rest like no other.
The world is full of troubles, stress, hustle and bustle here and there, working like elephants and eating like ants, so many things are not right, things are upside down, confusion is the order of the day, wars and rumors of war everywhere, judicial systems are perverse, political system has been failing without remedy or hope of a better tomorrow for many, no economic system has guaranteed absolute peace and rest for her citizens, no wonder Job wrote words of wisdom in Job 14:1 saying “man that is born of a woman is of few days and full of troubles”
Many in search for financial peace and rest and dipped their hands in many abominable practices, some joined several secret cults and ended up bring up more troubles for themselves than they bargained for.
The only hope of absolute peace and rest is in Jesus Christ. Our text shows clearly how Jesus is calling unto all that labour and heavy laden, that there is assurance of rest. His death and resurrection pave way for the peace that passes all understanding, the phrase “passes all understanding” means a peace that can’t be explained by reasoning or logic, because you can see a child of God going through tough times and yet he/she is still smiling, laughing, rejoicing in the victory of the cross as if there is no trouble at all. I mean a peace that can be liken to a bird on a palm tree blown seriously by wind and yet the bird is calm on that troubled tree. I decree that because Jesus is the reason for the season, peace that surpasses all reasoning shall be yours in Jesus Name.
Dearly beloved, nothing you have or will have can give you peace except the salvation in Jesus Christ. Recognize He died for your sins and accept Him as your saviour today and His door of absolute peace and rest shall be opened to you. God bless you
I receive absolute peace and rest in Jesus Christ from today henceforth in Jesus Name
