Entering Into His Rest

January 15, 2021

…the promise of entering into his rest remains… (Hebrews 4:1)

This promise referred to in the Letter to the Hebrews is ours for the taking; we have a choice.

We have been asked to love God and love others, to keep our focus on God’s will for our lives. However, nowhere in scripture does it say this request is easy. To keep our focus on God’s will requires dying to self. Our need to control often stands in the way. Choosing what we want is so much easier and meets our immediate needs.

That said, meeting our immediate needs or satisfying a temporary desire of the flesh pales in comparison to the promise referred to in Hebrews: the promise of entering into his rest.

We have been promised the possibility of eternal life, of entering into his rest. Will we choose to accept this gift?

Relinquish control to God.
