“Come to Me, all who are weary and heavy-laden, and I will give you rest. Matthew 11:28
Are you felling weary and burdened? Labor Day is a holiday designated to give everyone who works an extra day off for rest. Often times when we get wrapped up in our lives and work, we become overwhelmed and stressed out. When we take a rest, things don’t seem as bad when we come back to them.
This is the same concept God designated us in the beginning with the Sabbath Day. 6 days we should work and the 7th day we are to rest. Why did God require this? Because he knows us better than we know ourselves, he is our Creator. He knows if we don’t take a rest, we will become burned out and overwhelmed.
Fast forward and Jesus has become our rest. At the cross Jesus has taken on all of our sins and burdens. He provides us rest for our soul. The Prince of Peace, gives us his peace because he has overcome the world. But we must not forget to “Come to Jesus”, to take that Sabbath rest with him.
When you refuse to take Gods Rest, you are not only defying God but your hurting yourself physically and spiritually. This Labor Day, while you are relaxing with your family and friends, remember Jesus and what he has done for us on the cross. And remember every Sunday is Labor Day for those who follow Christ in Jesus Name Amen
