There were so many people coming
and going that they could not even take
time to eat, so He said to them, "Come
with Me by yourselves to a place where
we can be alone, and you can get some rest." Mark 6:31
Note that He said, "Come and rest," not
"Go and rest." True rest is found in companionship with the Lord. Resting is
not merely a ceasing of toil but coming
apart and fellowshipping with Him.
