Enter His Rest

Therefore, while the promise of entering His rest still stands, let us fear lest any of you should seem to have failed to reach it. For good news came to us just as to them, but the message they heard did not benefit them, because they were not united by faith with those who listened. For we who have believed enter that rest, as He has said, “As I swore in My wrath, ‘They shall not enter My rest,” although His works were finished from the foundation of the world.  For He has somewhere spoken of the seventh day in this way: “And God rested on the seventh day from all His works.” And again in this passage He said, “They shall not enter my rest.”  RestSince therefore it remains for some to enter it, and those who formerly received the good news failed to enter because of disobedience,  again He appoints a certain day, “Today,” saying through David so long afterward, in the words already quoted, “Today, if you hear His voice, do not harden your hearts.”  

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 4:1-11).

We cannot continue to work without rest. Jesus organised that rest for us in Himself if we obey. Do not harden your hearts against Him, because those who did so before you, did not make it into that rest. Today, if you will hear Him, obey His voice so you too will enter into that rest He planned for all those who loves Him. God said that our labour is not in vain, He made time for us to rest. Jesus also invited us to come to Him and He will give us rest. So let us work hard and strive to enter that special rest that only comes from God. Remember, if you hear His voice, obey it, so you can enter into His rest. God bless you.
