Augustine and Resting in Jesus

August 20, 2009

Augustine wrote:

And so though the Lord Jesus Christ himself did such things, he wished to open the eyes of men who were amazed and spellbound by such unusual temporal deeds to larger perspectives and convert them to eternal and more inward realities; so he said Come to me, you who toil and are heavy burdened, and I will refresh you; take my yoke upon you – and he did not add “Learn of me, because I raise those who have been four days dead,” but said Learn of me because I am meek and lowly of heart (Mt. 11:28).

(Augustine, The Trinity, VIII, 253)
