“There remains, then, a Sabbath-rest for the people of God; for anyone who enters God’s rest also rests from their works, just as God did from his.” Hebrews 4:9-10 (NIV)
Our God knows that we will encounter difficulties and challenges but He wants His children to experience the Christian life as a life of resting, trusting in what He has done for us and what He is doing for us. We know that we become Christians not by the things we do but by believing and receiving what Jesus did for us on the cross. We keep on living not by the things we do but by trusting in God's care for us. Yes, we have work to do for God and He has called us to carry the gospel to all the world. We are to enjoy a life of trusting God each day and resting in his provision for us. After creating the universe, God rested on the Sabbath. He wants us to rest on His promises every day. Let's experience God's rest today trusting in His love.
