Jesus Christ Offers Peace and Rest
It’s true. Jesus Christ offers us peace and rest when we follow Him with our whole heart.
Many years ago, I struggled quite often to find peace and rest. I lived for myself and thought my ways and thoughts were better. However, some time had passed before I realized my ways and thoughts were causing the problems. I was not getting any rest, and I certainly wasn’t experiencing any peace.
Life was quite chaotic, and I could never get settled.
In August of 1999, I accepted an invitation to go to church. I was new to the area, and the only person I knew invited me to her church. Begrudging, I chose to go, and it ended up being the best decision I ever made. My life changed forever.
I found the peace and rest I had always dreamed about. My outlook changed, and the things and people I thought I had to have slowly fell away.
Jesus Christ offered me peace and rest, and I took Him up on His offer. It was the best decision I ever made. I had accepted Jesus into my heart when I was a child, but I never lived for Him. Moreover, I never pursued Him. It was when I started pursuing a relationship with Jesus that my life turned around. I am not that broken woman I was twenty years ago.
Matthew 11:28-30 New International Version (NIV)
28 “Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. 29 Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. 30 For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light.”
Jesus Christ offers us peace and rest and so much more! His yoke is indeed easy.
Do you know Jesus Christ as your personal Lord and Savior? If not, you can know Him today.
