Strengthen and Encourage the Brethren 05/01/11

This week’s scripture is from Hebrews:

“There remains therefore a rest for the people of God. For he who has entered His rest has himself also ceased from his works as God did from His.”      (Hebrews 4:9-10)

How weary we can become from work and the cares of this world. There are times when the most spiritual thing we can do is to rest. Indeed, the scriptures tell us that to rest is a commandment from God, just as He rested we are to cease from our work and rest. We are not even to do “Godly” work on the Sabbath, but we are to rest in Him. God blesses those He loves with rest, if they will obey His command; Jesus promises us rest from weariness and that which burdens us if we trust in Him, for we cannot enter into the Lord’s rest unless we cease from striving and rest ourselves. Trust Him, rest and be refreshed.

May the Lord bless you with rest and good sleep.
