Although a very common word, in the context of Matthew “rest” means the opportunity to enjoy the perfect, unshakable confidence of salvation in our Lord in this life as well as in the life to come. When we rest in God we have absolute trust and confidence in his power meaning there is no reason to fear any situation or any man. Tonight I will show you how to enter this place of God’s perfect rest. Let us read from Matthew 11:25-30.
