We often use Bible verses out of context to find rest for our weary souls. Can you relate to that?
In this sermon, we look at a passage that has much to say about finding the spiritual rest we long for. How do we enter God’s promised rest from Hebrews 4?
- We React in Worship: Worship of the living God gives rest to our souls.
- We Rest in His Work: That which we trust in will be the source of our rest.
- We Repent in Watchfulness: Everyone’s deeds will one day be exposed, so your response to God is what’s most important.
Takeaway: God’s Word is living, conquering, and exposing so that we might see our need and draw near to His throne of grace.
Let us therefore strive to enter that rest, so that no one may fall by the same sort of disobedience. For the Word of God is living and active, sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing to the division of joints and of marrow, and discerning the thoughts and intentions of the heart. And no creature is hidden from his sight, but all are naked and exposed to the eyes of him to whom we must give an account.
