Entering Into Your Rest. Pt Three


A Promise For You From Bible Promises:

Topic: Entering Into Your Rest. Pt Three [04/07/17]

These things I have spoken unto you, that in me ye might have peace. In the world ye shall have tribulation: but be of good cheer; I have overcome the world. John 16:33. Read: Matt 11:28-30

In Hebrews 4:8, the Bible says, For if Jesus had given them rest, then would he not afterward have spoken of another day. The writer of Hebrew was actually saying that, if God had given rest to our fathers in time past, there wouldn't have been rest for us. Jesus is the author of eternal rest for the soul of man. Rest also signifies peace of mind which is the third in the fruits of the Spirit. Gal 5:22. According to Jesus Christ, we're living in a troubled world. A world devoid of peace. A world full of violence, wickedness and evil. Only in Jesus can you find lasting peace and rest because He has overcome this world full of troubles. Many today try to avoid the reality and in search of peace, protection and rest take to alcohol, drug, smoking, illicit sexual activities and all kinds of inhuman practices that separate a man from his Maker. All of the above would only multiply your sorrows because seeking after them is seeking after other gods. They can't give you satisfaction, they would rather separate you from the Satisfier - Jesus Christ.

Hence, in our Bible reading, Jesus gave a free offer of everlasting rest to all that want to be free from the endless labour in this world and the everlasting damnation in hell. Like He asked the man at the pool, "Do you want to be healed"?, He is asking you now," Do you want to enter into your rest"? Peace and rest in this world belong to those who will go to Jesus and surrender their lives. The choice is yours.
