How does rest differ from sleep?
Can rest be active or does it always involve inactivity?

Would you say that a place of rest is also a place of peace?

Passages for study and quotes:
2 Sam 6:3-5
2 Sam 6:12-16
“A believer longs after God: to come into His presence, to feel His love, to feel near to Him in secret, to feel in the crowd that he is nearer than all the creatures. Ah! Dear brethren, have you ever tasted this blessedness? There is greater rest and solace to be found in the presence of God for one hour, than in an eternity of the presence of man.” – Robert Murray McCheyne
2 Sam 6:20-22
“In place of our exhaustion and spiritual fatigue, God will give us rest. All He asks is that we come to Him…that we spend a while thinking about Him, meditating on Him, talking to Him, listening in silence, occupying ourselves with Him – totally and thoroughly lost in the hiding place of His presence.” – Chuck Swindoll
“Everywhere I have sought rest and found it not except sitting apart in a nook with a little book” – Thomas a Kempis
“There is no book on which we can rest in a dying moment but the Bible.” – John Selden
“Our rest lies in looking to the Lord, not to ourselves.” – Watchman Nee
