Sunday Morning Service
A lot of people today suffer from burnout. When Moses saw the burning bush in the Old Testament, it was not the bush that burned, but God on the bush.
The term “rest” in Matthew 11:28 is referring to an uplifting rest. The world tires us out, and God lifts us up. There is rest for the sinner in verse 28 and rest for the saved in subjection in verse 29.
The term “rest” in Hebrews 4:4 is referring to a pausing rest. God wasn’t tired after creation. We rest on the first day of each week to reflect on our Christian walk. God gives us areas in which to work. What does your life count for?
The term “rest” in Hebrews 4:9 is referring to a sabbatical rest. This is a time where your needs are cared for without having to labor. The rapture could happen any day, and there will be rest in Heaven. This is a rest that remains.
There are other types of rests as well. Psalms 36:7 refers to a rest in confidence. II Thessalonians 1:7 refers to a comforting rest.
God gives His people rest.
