BY: NORMAN P. GRUBB
The Lord gave me a wonderful text when I entered in by God’s grace into the first stages of understanding here. He gave it to me when I had to take up new responsibility in this mission from the time our founder died. I was very young for that kind of work then and I remember how the Lord gave me a word as plain as could be. It has been with me ever since, a kind of thermometer. He gave that word on rest in the famous passage of Jesus in Matthew 11:28: “Come unto me, all ye that labor and are heavy laden and I will give you rest,” that is the first of the two rests. That rest is a rest, of course, of sins forgiven. Then He goes on, “Take my yoke upon you,” that means get into service with me. Pull the yoke of the Gospel with me; “and learn of me, for I am meek and lowly in heart.” That is the key! We’ll go into that later on. There’s the key! “For I am meek and lowly in heart and ye shall find rest unto your souls.” Now we are getting somewhere.
