There is also rest in Jesus through whatever valley, trial, worry, or fear we face today. The bread and the cup are a reminder that if God gave us Jesus, the costliest gift of all, God would give us everything else we need. If God saved us and made us God’s children through Jesus, if God defeated evil and our sin, then we can trust that God also has good plans for us and will carry us through what we face today. If God gave us Jesus in our sin, how much more will God take care of us as God’s beloved children? Despite our burdens and trials, there is rest in Jesus because he loves and cares for us.
- Matthew 11:28 - 30
