Rest in Christ


Church Family,

Shortly after having our first child someone told me, “Congratulations, you won’t get to sleep for the next 10 years!” (The jokes on the them, we have 4 kids so ha, we aren’t sleeping till 2040 something)

Genesis 2:1-2 And on the seventh day God finished his work that he had done, and he rested on the seventh day from all his work that he had done. 3So God blessed the seventh day and made it holy, because on it God rested from all his work that he had done in creation.

Rest is so important, but while God is concerned with physical rest, this passage is pointing to an even greater kind of Rest. A rest in which our soul rest from trying to save itself.

The song writer penned these words,

Standing on the promises, I cannot fall
Listening every moment to the Spirit's call
Resting in my Savior as my all in all
Standing on the promises of God  

Hebrews 4:9-11 So then, there remains a Sabbath rest for the people of God, 10for whoever has entered God’s rest has also rested from his works as God did from his. 11Let us therefore strive to enter that rest, so that no one may fall by the same sort of disobedience.

My hope this morning is that your soul rest in the saving work of Christ.

Matthew 11:28 Come to me, all who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.
