Come and receive rest

… It is implied, too, that these are undeserving of rest, for it is said, “Come unto me, and I will give you rest.” A gift is not of merit but of grace; wages and reward are for those who earn, but a gift is a matter of charity. O you who feel your unworthiness this morning, who have been seeking salvation earnestly, and suffering the weight of sin, Jesus will freely give to you what you cannot earn or purchase, he will give it as an act of his own free, rich, sovereign mercy; and he is prepared, if you come to him, to give it to you now, for so has he promised, “Come unto me, all ye that labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.” – Spurgeon
