Yesterday I wrote about the need for rest in our lives. However, all of the rest that we might find upon earth is only temporary. Soon, we will get tired again and will be in need of further rest. This ought to teach us that we need a greater rest.
The good news is that ultimate rest can be found! It is found in Jesus Christ.
Hebrews 4:10 says, “The one who has entered His rest has himself also rested from his works, as God did from his.” In other words, when we by faith enter the rest that Jesus has provided, we no longer need to strive according to our works. Rather, we can trust that we are reconciled to God through the cross. There is nothing more that we need to do to please God. Jesus has done it for us.
