TOPIC: REST FOR YOUR SOUL

TEXT: Hebrews 4:1-16

KEY VERSE:
“For we which have believed do enter into rest, as he said, As I have sworn in my wrath, if they shall enter into my rest: although the works were finished from the foundation of the world.” - (Hebrews 4:3)

Ours is an age of speed, business and anxiety. Our business seems to deprive us of necessary moments to reflect on and discover where life seems to be leading us.

In our restive daily toils, we scurry here and there like soldier-ants disturbed in their tracts. High blood pressure, nerve disorders, brain fatigue and many more are what we have than true rest. In this circumstance, the word of God admonishes us, “Be still, and know that I am God” (Psalm 46:10).

Paul the apostle warns in our text that the gospel message is given to us that we may come into the rest prepared by God for us. Some before us heard the same word preached to them but were not profited by it. Not discerning the message of the Word, they fell into unbelief and indulged in empty religious observances. They forsook God, “the fountain of living waters”, and fell to their own inventions and vain confidence (Jeremiah 2:13).

Except God’s peace rests in our hearts, there can be no rest in our lives. His rest for His people include peace in the heart because of the pardon for sins; rest from fear because of Christ’s abiding presence; rest from the dread of death because of the hope of eternal life.

Rest comes through genuine relationship with Christ. He sets us free to be active and joyful in His service, and when our time here is over, He stands at the door to welcome us home saying, “well done... enter into the joy (rest) of thy Lord”.

THOUGHT FOR THE DAY:
There’s sweet rest after labour.

THE BIBLE IN ONE YEAR:
Proverbs 7-8
