Rest is something that all human beings desire. Everyone who has a job wants to get home and rest. Even, we all want to reach an age where we do not have to work, and so we can rest from everything we have worked for so many years.
Not only do we want to rest from secular things, we also want to rest from those spiritual battles we wage every day. There is a book about rest and it is “the pilgrim’s progress”. In this allegory we realize that there was a very tired man who wanted to rest from the heavy baggage he had on his back. This burden represented all the struggles a Christian goes through in his life. We also have this heavy baggage on our back, but did you know that God promises us rest from such heavy luggage? Let’s see this Biblical promise:
‘He will wipe every tear from their eyes. There will be no more death’ or mourning or crying or pain, for the old order of things has passed away.”
