Jesus tells us in Matthew 11: 28 “Come unto Me, all ye that labor and are heavy-laden, and I will give you rest. And in Hebrews 4:9, the Lord says, “There remaineth, therefore, a Sabbath rest unto the people of God.” The only true rest comes from the Creator of all things, through His Son, Our Lord, Jesus Christ. Sometimes, we get so busy that we forget to spend time with Him in order to absorb His rest. I’d like to do a series of posts that will help us focus on enjoying that rest He so lovingly wants us to have.
So this post is the first in a series of posts for Sundays. I don’t call it a challenge — rather an INVITATION. If you have a photo, a graphic, a favorite scripture passage, or a short quote that represents REST to you, please share it via this “Sabbath Rest” series.
Here’s How: Simply post your photo or scripture on your own site; then hop over here to my “Sabbath Rest” post each week and paste the link to yours in the “Comments” box. That’s it. We’ll all get a chance to visit other sites and benefit from the “Rest” offered on each one.
Here’s mine for this week:
This photo, as you see from the credits, is courtesy of free-extras.com. From the moment I first saw it, it has created a rest deep within me. I appreciate the photographer’s ability to capture the essence of peace and rest, and I hope you enjoy it as much as I do.
