THE SABBATH REST

Yesterday we saw the blessing of the Sabbath.  There is grave danger and disaster of not keeping the Sabbath rest of God.  Nehemiah the governor was angry with the people of God for disobeying God with regard to the Sabbath (Neh 13:15-18). Money had become the pursuit for people.  They were not rested in God.

This leads us to understand the true meaning of the Sabbath rest.  At the very core, the Sabbath is to be rested in God.  The material pursuits of life will take us away from our rest in God.  Rest in God is about our belief or faith in Him.  The pursuit of the material will take us away from our faith in God.

Those who are driven by the cares of this world, the delusion of money and desires for other things will have much sorrow in life. (Mk 4:18-19/ 1Ti 6:9-10).

God wants us to enter into the rest with Him (Heb 4:1, 9, 11). The majority of the Israelites, who started from Egypt to go to the Promised Land, perished in the wilderness, because of unbelief (Heb 3:8-11).  This is the warning for us that the disaster that came upon the Israelites can fall on us too.

Faith in God is the true Sabbath rest (Heb 3:19).  All of life has to be about our belief and trust in Him.  We can and we should pray, asking Him to help our unbelief.  He is waiting to increase our faith in Him.  Faith in Him is what He longs to see in us (Lk 18:8).  When He returns, it our faith in Him that will bring Him praise, honour and glory (I Pet 1:6-7).

“The material pursuits of life will take us away from our rest in God. Rest in God is about our faith in Him. The pursuit of life will take us away from our faith in God.”

THOUGHT TO PONDER:  The Rich Young Ruler trusted his wealth and forfeited Eternal Life.
