Every one knows what it is to rest from labour, from weariness of body and mind. And every one who is acquainted with the Bible cannot but know that there is a rest promised to the people of God. (Hebrews 4:9) But the sweetest of all thoughts to a poor, distressed, weather-beaten sinner, is to behold Christ himself this rest for him to lie down upon for ever. The Holy Ghost, by Isaiah, gave account of this rest in Jesus when he said, "This is the rest wherewith ye may cause the weary to rest, and this is the refreshing." (Isaiah 28:12. See also Psalms 116:7; Matthew 11:28-29)
