thought for the day

Hebrews 4:9-11

There remains then, a Sabbath rest for the people of God; for those who enter God’s rest also rest from their own work, just as God did from His. Let us, therefore, make every effort to enter that rest, so that no one will perish by following their example of obedience.

Heidelberg Catechism 103

Lord of the Sabbath, I can faithfully obserrve a day of rest and yet miss its point. Your rest is the good life; it’s what you intended for all of creation – to know you and enjpy your goodness. Thank you for the gospel invitation to catch my breath, to stop all my striving and enjoy everything acomplished for me in Jesus. In his name I pray, amen.
