“Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest.” Matthew 11:28
Rest is commanded by God. It is not a simple suggestion of something that could be useful. God commands rest, because we require rest. Our fast-paced, busy world often neglects and even despises rest. Even what we call “rest” is often stressful and not restful at all. The church has fallen victim to the ugly mindset of busyness is next to godliness. For decades the church has hyper-programmed the life and rest out of everyone.
