SOUL REST.BY GEORGE WATSON, D.D." Come unto me, all ye that labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. "Take my yoke upon you, and learn of me; for I am meek and lowly in heart: and ye shall find rest unto your souls. "For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light." — Matt. 11: 28-30. "HOME unto me, all ye that labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest." More prop-erly, "I will rest you." That is a perfect promise, com-plete in itself. The next verse is the giving of another promise ; " Take my yoke upon you, and learn of me ; for I am meek and lowly in heart : and ye shall find " — not develop it, not grow it, not make it — ye shall discover soul rest. Then follows the conclusion. After we have found this second rest, then — "My yoke is easy, and my burden is light." I never knew how to read that text in my life until the Lord gave me the experience which the text con-tains. I will give a simple exegesis of the words. I do not wish to add anything to the Word or to take anything from it, but simply explain the Word as it lies there,

SOUL REST. 305 Here are two kinds of rest that are promised to those who come to Jesus. The first rest is promised to those who come repenting of their sins, laboring with the struggles of their own sins, heavy laden, with a sense of guilt and of darkness, and a dread of future wrath. When they come to Jesus, He gives them rest by re-moving the guilt and by forgiving their sins. After the penitent is pardoned and regenerated, he is then in a condition where he can take the yoke, and never till then. You cannot find a passage in the whole Bible where God ever invites any one on earth to serve Him till after he is converted. No one can enter the ser-vice of God until he is born of God, no more than any one can enter upon the services of human life until he is born in the human life. Now take the yoke of Christ, and learn that He is meek and lowly in heart, and when that lesson has entered the soul that soul will make a discovery greater than that of Columbus. It will not create something, it will not make something, it will not develop something, as we have been taught the last

two hundred years, but that soul will find something that God made before He made the world. St. Paul tells us that the redemption in Jesus Christ is older than the foundation of the world, and when we get perfect heart rest we simply find what God made before He made Gabriel. And after we find heart 306 LOVE ABOUNDING. rest, then the yoke of Jesus is easy and then the burden is light. That is Scripture. Oh, how many times this Scrip-ture has been butchered, by just giving it all to the unconverted, and inviting sinners to come to Christ! "You come to Christ and He will give you soul rest, and you will find that the yoke is easy and the burden is light ! " And they have come and repented and been converted and joined the Church, and then found out that the preacher told a lie. They found that the yoke was not easy and the burden was not light. There are one million Christians to-day in this country serving God that are struggling to get to heaven, and they knoiv that the yoke is not easy and the burden
