Verse 28 is the dividing line of the passage and its high point. The first half, "Come to me", has three verses of intense self-revelation packed in behind the "me" to whom we are to come. The motivation for our coming is the identity of Jesus as the self-revelation of the Father, and later on, because he is gentle and lowly of heart. The second half is the outcome of coming to Jesus: "I will give you rest". I hesitated to label this as an action-result arc, because our coming is not the direct cause of our receiving rest. It isn't really the purpose, either, though- we are coming in order to know the Father, not to receive rest.
