10 Quotes from Billy Graham on Rest

We all walk through busy seasons of life. Whatever season you find yourself in, remember the hope that is promised: Jesus Christ can give you rest. Here are 10 quotes from Billy Graham on rest.

“God knows we need rest, and one of the reasons He established the Sabbath was to give us rest…But God’s plan also was to use the Sabbath to turn our hearts and minds toward Him. In other words, He wants us to set aside one day of the week as a special time of worship and reflection on God’s Word.”

“Jesus was a man of feverish activity. He went everywhere doing good. Even though it was feverish activity, there was a calmness and a serenity about him.”

“Christ didn’t say, ‘I will give you rest from sorrow.’ He said, ‘I will give you rest in sorrow.’…He didn’t promise insurance from trouble, but assurance in the midst of trouble.”

“You, that are lying on hospital beds, you that are suffering bereavement because of the loss of a loved one – Christ can give you rest – in the midst of adversity and trial and suffering. This is the rest that He gives.”

“The rest that Christ gives is not a piece of negation. It is founded upon something positive – Christ himself. He said, ‘Come unto me and I will give you rest.’ There’s no rest in any other direction. He alone is the source of life and joy and soul rest.”

“In the most restless age of history, Christ can give you rest.”

“This rest that Jesus gives will endure the ravages of time and will abide through all eternity.”

“Most people yearn for one thing more than anything else: inner peace. Without it they have no lasting happiness or security.”

“Nothing can calm our souls more or better prepare us for life’s challenges than time spent alone with God.”

“Take care of your soul–your inner self–by feeding on the Word of God and letting His Spirit transform you from within.”
