Rest And Progress

Rest does not mean inactivity or uselessness. We are being whirled through space while we rest on the earth. While we rest in the train or steamboat we are being rapidly carried along; "so while we rest in Christ we grow in grace, and are being filled with His fulness, as the branch grows and is fruitful through its absorbing of or resting in the vine. Of course much depends on where we rest. "Come unto Me, and I will give your rest. Take My yoke upon you, and learn of Me" (Mat_11:28).
