The X Commandments According To Jesus | Sabbath Rest

Dr. Mike Harder

Exodus 20:8-11

As a society, rest isn’t cultural for us. Many ignore the directive to make the Sabbath a day of rest. In Genesis, God modeled Sabbath rest for us. After creating the world, his labor ceased, and he rested. When we think of rest, a vacation comes to mind, relaxing at the beach or looking across a mountain vista. However, what if we viewed the Sabbath not as a day, but rather, a person. Jesus said, “Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest” (Matthew 11:28 NIV). Have you considered giving your burdens to Jesus and resting in him? No more running or trying to do life in your own strength. Find rest by giving your past, your story, to Jesus. Today, choose to rest in Jesus Christ.
