“Therefore I swore in My anger, Truly they shall not enter into My rest.” Psalms 95:11
One of the debated topics of Christianity is the Sabbath. Most of the time we spend debating whether we should worship on a Saturday or Sunday, when the real issue is Gods Rest. God created the Sabbath on the 7th day for humanity to enter into his rest. But because of our continual sin and disobedience, God said “we will never enter into his rest”
We must understand that sin is separation from God. We can’t live in sin and expect to enter into the Holy One’s rest. Just because you observe the Sabbath doesn’t make you righteous. For we have all fallen short of the glory of God, and we are all sinners. (Romans 3:23)
“Come to Me, all who are weary and heavy-laden, and I will give you rest. Matthew 11:28
This is why we need Jesus. He has paid the price for our sins, through him we are no longer separated from God. Through Christ we can truly find Gods Rest. Without Jesus as the Lord of your life, you will never enter into Gods Rest or be righteous.
Therefore when Jesus had received the sour wine, He said, “It is finished!” And He bowed His head and gave up His spirit. John 19:30
When Jesus said “It is Finished” the curse of sin and death have been abolished. No longer are we a slave to sin, but now through Christ we can enter into “Gods Rest” Jesus has done for us, what is impossible for us to do ourselves. The Son has set your Free in Jesus Name Amen
