Last Sunday we took an in-depth look at Hebrews chapter 4 and what it means to enter into God’s rest by faith. The seventh day, when God rested, was a picture of what God first intended for all people: a life at rest with God, ourselves, and others. Sin ruined that rest for humanity, but God’s rest remained. Israel rejected God’s invitation into His rest by not possessing the faith to enter into the promised land. Today, God extends the invitation into His rest through Christ and his finished work on the cross. To get the full context of the message, you can view it here.
There were a couple of other insights that time didn’t allow for on Sunday that I thought would be helpful to expand on.
