Inspired by Shizuka Blog: Sabbath.
A new direction in thought: we are to enter into God’s “rest”, God’s Sabbath; this is a cessation of our own works and strivings. I have found this of great interest, partly because of the way I am motivated towards God: I desire His promises. I want the good things that accompany specific concepts. Like Sabbath. There are some very wonderful things attached to keeping Sabbath.
There is a significance in salvation through Christ that is termed “entering the rest of God”:
For we who have believed do enter that rest, as He has said: “So I swore in My wrath, “They shall not enter My rest,”‘ [ Psalm 95:11] although the works were finished from the foundation of the world.
” Let us therefore be diligent to enter that rest, lest anyone fall according to the same example of disobedience. ”
So, new direction of thought. It might find it’s way into the blog at some point.
