I will give you rest

Vandaag las ik iets over rust. Het is in het Engels en als ik het vertaal kan ik niet de goede woorden vinden. Dus deel ik het in het Engels.

Come to me, all you that labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.  (Matthew 11:28)

All you that labor and are heavy laden! Πάντες gratia universalis. “In this all thou oughtest to include thyself as well, and not suppose that thou dost not belong to the number; thou shouldst not seek for another register of God,” Melanchthon.

I will give you rest. — The I is emphasized in the Greek. He gives what no one else can give — rest from the burden of sin, from the weariness of fruitless toil.

He will not only give us rest. 
He is giving us something better.
Himself! For He is our rest.

  1. Beautiful Ariella. Thanks for sharing your love for God. Yes our greatest rest is in Him. Nothing the world offers comes close to the comfort God provides because Christ's peace never fails us. GBY my friend.
