Get some Rest...

God brought the subject of rest to my attention yesterday while I was in the Word. It may be that God is preparing me for some time away that I will get next week. God's plan is for each of us to receive a day of rest throughout the week. We each need to set apart a day of Sabbath rest for:

Remembering God's work of creation and God's work of spiritual re-creation (Gen. 2:2-3; Ex. 20:8-11; Acts 20:7).

Experiencing the worshipful rest that characterizes Heaven (Heb. 4:9-11).

Setting apart one day each week just for God's enjoyment (Col. 2:16-17).

Trusting that God will provide seven days benefit for six days labor (Jer. 17:21-22, 24-25, 27; Mk. 2:27).
