Wig’s Word of God Today 1-18-2013
The rest of God in Heaven by your admission of Christ’s saving grace.
And whoever enters into God’s rest, rests from his own works as God did from His. Hebrews 4:10
He preached the Word to them. Mark 2:2c
Hebrews 4:1-11, Psalm 78 & Mark 2:1-12
We see a careful request today from the writer of Hebrews reminding us that we must be on our guard to rest effectively as God did as well as commanded us to do on the Sabbath day. He speaks of fear that lends a hand to caution, care and courage to be very watchful of our works at all times as to not be displeasing to our LORD. Yes, We have an offer of heaven but we risk the chance of losing it if we aren’t obedient to God’s Word in practice, prayer and preaching reminding ourselves weekly to rest and take care of God First.
God’s rest is something we all crave and hope for but cannot be obtained by anything you do but by admitting Jesus Christ is LORD and accepting His call leaning not on our own understanding but that of God’s Word. Many a Biblical Scholar agrees that what Paul speaks here as “rest” is the rest of God in Heaven which ONLY God can confer by your admission of Christ’s saving grace. Here is the Promise of Old to Christians anew allowing us to live the Promise left to Believers of being admitted to the enjoyment of that blessed world where God dwells eternally. Amen.
We ask in prayer: Dear LORD, we pray today we live in Your rest LORD as we undertake Your love’s work. Praying for SC & STL Emmaus. Praying for Kairos Prison Ministry. Prayers for Dr. Cruz-Peluca. We pray for Greg Bishop to find healing LORD. We pray God we only rest in You. In Jesus Name we Eternally pray. Amen.
Yours in Christ,
†Spirit led God inspired Christ fed†
Striving to enter the rest of Heaven’s formation– Hebrews 4:1-11
Don’t be feeble
Be on your guard
The Promise isn’t too hard
It seems none has failed
In Jesus we in fact must hail
The Good News our ancestors wailed
The Word they were unable to scale
They were not united in faith
Those who listened tried to debate
His wrath to those who can’t relate
Entering not into His rest was His to actuate
His Works formed at our foundation
The Everlasting Peace to our relations
With God to find from His Eternal gestation
Resting on the Sabbath to know His Salvation
Striving to enter the rest of Heaven’s formation
