A God of Rest - September 5, 2018

When Christ died on the Cross, “He carried our sins in his body so that we can be dead to sin and live for what is right” (1 Peter 2:24). Heaven’s work of redemption was finished.  Whatever barrier that had separated us, or might ever separate us from God was gone. The nagging questions are gone:  Am I good enough?  Will I achieve enough?

The legalist finds rest. The atheist finds hope. God is not a god of burdens but a God of rest. He knows we cannot achieve perfection.  Jesus invites, “Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you and learn from me. For I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls” (Matthew 11:28-30).  What a promise! And because God’s promises are unbreakable our hope is unshakeable!
