`Come unto me, all ye labouring and burdened ones, and I will give you rest,
- Youngs Literal Bible
11:28 Come to me - Here he shows to whom he is pleased to reveal these things to the weary and heavy laden; ye that labour - After rest in God: and are heavy laden - With the guilt and power of sin: and I will give you rest - I alone (for none else can) will freely give you (what ye cannot purchase) rest from the guilt of sin by justification, and from the power of sin by sanctification.
Mt 11:28 Come unto me. This is one of the sweetest passages in the New Testament. It shows the willingness of the Lord. The kings and earth and the great are usually difficult of access, while Jesus is not only willing, but invites us, to come to him. Note how gracious is the invitation! (1) It is the Lord who speaks. (2) He invites to come to him. (3) The invitation is to those who labor and are heavy laden. (4) He promises, to all these weary ones who come, rest. The offer is not that of a man, but of the Divine Savior. Millions in all ages since can bear witness that the promise is sure. That labour and are heavy laden. Feel heavily the burdens of life, of sin and sorrow. Rest. Peace of soul.

This verse is a great comfort to me. I do believe the other verses that follow are part of a great statement our Lord made to help us in our hours of needs.

The bible is stating clearly that for we who have heaving laden we should seek for His rest so let me ask this question those who have been seeking rest from witchdoctor socceror do they know that God is the only one whom we are surpose to approach or they still believe on wordly false teaching

The only way you can have rest from sins, struggles and from all forms of sickness of life is to come to Him JESUS CHRIST.

The statement of jesus is very clear as you do not force a matured person to eat food to gain his stenght,so is Jesus not forcing any one, It 's an invitation praise the Lord.

Emmanuel Adekimi's comment on 2014-08-15 14:44:33:
This is a clarion call to ALL, God is calling all to repentance, He is calling all out of struggles and weariness. There is an important part of this calling which is telling us to take a bold step after knowing or believing we have issues that require assistance. Come He says. Are you ready to come to him.
Richard Emmanuel Izuchukwu.'s comment on 2014-06-24 01:07:07:
Really when i ponder on this chapter and verse of the bible,there is this strenght that comes into me and the assurance that life without Christ Jesus is always a life of struggles and mishaps.It tells me that all i need in life is Jesus!!!!!!
Emma's comment on 2014-06-10 23:45:31:
i believe whatever we are passing through that seems so hard for us overcome. Lord Jesus is given us asssurance that we can find rest in Him

Yes God is good he will never leave nor forsake us nomatter how big the problem can be he is bigger than the problem
MockingBird's comment on 2014-04-06 07:39:13:
I agree with Ben Weavers comment Also in Heb.4 the whole chapter They entered not in because of unbelief. verse 9 says that His rest still remains and even though in unbelief when turned around His rest still remains. You can never sin away the day of Grace . Praise God
Akpan Inemesit's comment on 2014-01-24 15:10:13:
To me is very interesting verse which a believer as to work toward it. God said all he that labor come i will give rest he did not specified and are to separate from the worthy thing and accept him as Lord and savior he will give us rest by giving us dominion over everything. less trust and obey him it will grant us internal rest.
Adebayo Isreal Olusaanu's comment on 2014-01-14 10:14:42:
To I believe that God is just calling us to repentance. that no matter how our sin is that he will forgive us.also he's telling us that we should not be running up and down that all what we need is with him.
Paula's comment on 2013-12-16 09:56:53:
God is there for us to come to Him, if we are weak and burdened from any source we can find comfort and rest in him - true comfort only comes from the Father, our Father God, the one true God who loves us unconditionally and will always give us what we really need. Praise God for what He alone chooses for us.
Nyathi SG's comment on 2013-10-21 16:33:35:
After working one needs a rest.God is calling those who have worked hard to cme and rest.like Paul who said I have fought now am awaiting my crown.As believers we are to fight againt all forms of evil so as to please our Lord so that He can invite us to His internal life .

God's promise word allways beautiful and prosperous of His people. and the word of mt11:28 is not only for the belivers but also for every one who lives on the earth, but, the beauty of His word belongs to those who accepted him as a personal saviour so as a christian if we accept the real word into our heart and meditate we are become of witness to non belivers.
Abel Chuks's comment on 2013-03-18 23:07:45:
Our Lord God had always been and would ever be. Once we acknowledge Him (God), all our fears are gone.
Denard's comment on 2012-12-16 10:10:04:
Our lives wear us down, but we can take it to Jesus in prayer and he will give us comfort.
