Wednesday Wallpaper: Enter the Sabbath Rest

Scriptures: Hebrews 4:8-11
by Jacob Abshire on September 30, 2015

Enter Jesus and enter rest. To the Old Testament Israelite, rest was found in a place. To the New Testament Christian, rest is found in a person—Jesus Christ. We can have rest in Him because He has completed the work to please God on our behalf. We can rest from worry, guilt, pressure, anxiety, and all other concerns of pleasing God ourselves (Heb. 4:10). The peace available to us—peace with God won by Christ—can be enjoyed in our hearts today, developed in our lives over time, and fully realized in the future when we see our Lord face-to-face. But, we must believe. Heed the prophetic words of David and the writer of Hebrews: “Today, if you hear God’s voice, do not harden your hearts,” but “strive to enter that rest” (Heb. 4:7, 11). Let this wallpaper remind you to enter Jesus and enter rest.

“For if Joshua had given them rest, God would not have spoken of another day later on. So then, there remains a Sabbath rest for the people of God, for whoever has entered God’s rest has also rested from his works as God did from his. Let us therefore strive to enter that rest, so that no one may fall by the same sort of disobedience.”

Hebrews 4:8-11
