Come to Me … I will give you rest.There are two invitations here and two kinds of rest. The first (Matthew 12:28) is to come to Jesus in faith to find eternal rest from the burdens of sin and death. The second (Matthew 12:29) then, after our salvation, is to take up the yoke of discipleship—to learn from Him (Eph. 4:20-24) and to find daily rest in His service (Heb. 4:8-11). This promise of
rest points us directly to the
Sabbath questions of Matthew 12:1-8.
