Decide to Rest
What a simple command: Rest.
God designed this.
Rest is embedded in the best way of living.
You have the privilege to rest. You have the opportunity to rest.
“No ancient society before the Jews had a day of rest.
The God who made the universe and rested bids us do the same, calling us to a weekly restoration of prayer, study, and recreation (or re-creation).”
Thomas Cahill from ‘The Gifts of the Jews’
Let’s not miss this.
You are invited to join the One True God in the holiness of not having to produce for a day a week.
In that rest, you may discover new things about yourself and about the Lord Himself.
You are not a product to Him.
He is not a product to you.
