Sabbath Rest

Filed under: Bible,Christ,devotion,God,Jesus — by ginrich @ 1:00 am

Hebrews 4:9-10. So then, there remains a Sabbath rest for the people of God, for whoever has entered God’s rest has also rested from his works as God did from his.

Our Sundays are one of our busiest days of the week. We are busy helping others come together to worship God and fellowship with other believers. We try to take some other day off to rest our minds, bodies and emotions as we also feed our own spirits. We have a daughter who, because of the nature of her work, must work 7 days a week and is on call 24 x 7. We’ve explained to her and her employer how important it is for her body, mind, emotions and spirit to have one full day off every week. We are praying God will give them wisdom to work this out while still meeting the demands of the job. God didn’t design our physical bodies to be a working machine. We must learn the proper balance for all of our being. We need time to rest from our routines and rest in our God, allowing Him to refresh us for His glory. Our question is are we taking good care of His temple (our bodies, minds and hearts are the temple where His a Holy Spirit resides)?
