It is not that we cease from labor but that we are occupied in a new kind of labor and we find rest for our souls in Jesus. Come unto the savior. He calls us to learn of him. And yes to do so means to cease from labor, from laboring for self interest. We begin to be followers, surrending our own pursuits to the pursuer of our heart. Like David we say "His gentleness has made me great" for His yoke is easy and His burden is light!
