Rest

I was reading about rest this morning.  It seems fitting, being the weekend, that rest be the topic of today’s blog.

Gen. 2:2-3:  “And on the seventh day God ended His work which He had done, and He rested on the seventh day from all His work which He had done.  Then God blessed the seventh day and sanctified it, because in it He rested from all His work which God had created and made.”

I encourage you to rest.  Even God, the Maker and Sustainer of all things, rested.  Since we are made in His image, it is logical to assume He was setting an example for us.  Working is good, even necessary, but we need to rest.  There is a time when the work needs to end.  A day of rest has been blessed and sanctified.  Enter into it.  One day we will enter in to His rest, and what a glorious day that will be.  Until then, my dear brothers and sisters, rest in Him.

Pausing,
