“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
Growing up, nearly every business was closed on Sunday, the widely accepted day of rest. I only understood that God worked six days then rested after He created man, and He told us to do the same. For many years I did just that, but the repeal of the “Blue Law” in Texas gradually wore me down, and I became as busy as everyone else.
What is so special about Sabbath rest, anyway? This rest is a special haven specifically for those who know and love God. As followers of Christ we enter a different level of rest, secure in knowing we’ve been freed from the burden of trying endlessly to do work our way into earning the approval of our Heavenly Father. He tells us in 1 John “I write these things to you who believe in the name of the Son of God so that you may know that you have eternal life.”
(1 Jn 5:13) He doesn’t give us a “hope so “ or “I think so” kind of faith. He gives us a “know so” faith we can hang our coats and hats on, so that we can sit down at His feet and take a load off. THIS is Sabbath rest.🚦
