Rest
|
Luke 10:25-37

God desires rest for us because it does not come naturally to us. To rest, we have to trust that God will take care of things for us. We have to trust that, if we take a day off, the world will not stop turning on its axis. If one of the definitions of “relax” is “to become less firm,” then relaxing our grip on our own lives, careers, families, etc., and giving them over to God in faith is the best way to relax. Remember that the ultimate rest is found in Christ. In light of what you've learned this week about the nature of following Jesus, rest in the knowledge that He has work for you to do right where you are, right now. And find peace in realizing that He is patient with you: He knows you will keep trying to take the reins, but He will keep taking them back as long as you let Him.
