#40 Rest from Works
Continuously updated, this collection of Martha‘s writings is for all in search of true intimacy with Christ.
Hebrews 4:9, 10 HCSB
Therefore, a Sabbath rest remains for God’s people. For the person who has entered His rest has rested from his own works.
What is the rest of God? It is Christ’s ability instead of my inability! The Sabbath is a large and important subject in the Old Testament. The Sabbath rest of the Old Testament was a picture of Christ. HE is the Sabbath, a rest from the weariness of human futility and failure.
Jesus Christ does in me what I cannot do. He IS what I am not. “For me to live is Christ.” And ‘the rest’ is that I cease to try and live watching Him accomplish God’s will for me, within me, instead of me.
