9 There remains, then, a Sabbath-rest for the people of God;
How is it that even in the obviously good things God has for us, we still find a way to fumble it? God in His amazing and infinite mercy, upon the creation of the world, programmed it for us all to do nothing for one day. Just rest, that’s it, nothing else. That is an awesome thing right? And yet Sin in its deceitfulness ‘helps’ us find a way to mess it up still. Rest is good, not only is it a command, but it is grace. Our Creator knows us better than anyone and desires our spiritual and physical health more than anyone. Isnt it wonderful that for us to experience all that He has intended for us, we need to learn how to pause, be still and rest? (Josh)
