Find Ultimate Rest
In this command, there are actually two levels of rest that are promised. The first level is given to us when we become believers in the Lord Jesus Christ: “Come unto me, all ye that labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest” (Matthew 11:28). The second level of rest is not something given to us but is found by us when we fulfill the requirements of being yoked with Christ: “Take my yoke upon you, and learn of me . . . and ye shall find rest unto your souls. For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light” (Matthew 11:29–30).
Salvation gives rest between our spirits and God’s Spirit. Christ’s yoke allows us to find rest in our souls.
