6 Promises of Christ: #1

For more on the topic of promises we don't believe, listen to the December 14 sermon at EffinghamARP.org.

Christ offers rest for the weary and burdened (Matt 11:28): 

“Come to Me, all who are weary and heavy-laden, and I will give you rest.” 

Your earthly body is bruised and broken.  You face sickness, pain, or an injury you must live with your entire life. Christ promises you rest by equipping you with the spiritual fortitude to face each day.  Sometimes you will find physical healing in Him.  Other times you will only find spiritual healing, but it is no less important.  His rest does not necessarily mean and end to sleepless nights or days of discomfort (though it may).  His promise of rest does mean that you can have a unearthly strength to face a hard day in your earthly body.  

Do you believe this promise?
