God rested from His finished work of creation on the seventh day, the Sabbath. Jesus, God incarnate, rested from His redemptive work on the cross when He declared, “It is finished.”
Jesus is Lord of the Sabbath (Matthew 12:8) and He invites us into His rest. It’s a rest from striving to be, to rest in the I AM.
Adam enjoyed a finished work, before ruining it by his fall. Today, Jesus calls us to rest in the finished work, perfect and incorruptible. Will you enter in?
There remains, then, a Sabbath-rest for the people of God; for anyone who enters God’s rest also rests from their works, just as God did from his. Hebrews 4:9-10, NIV
