There’s not enough time. Not enough money. Then, as we get older—not enough energy. The world keeps going crazy. Life gets more and more insane all the time. God says We’ll get more done in 6 days than we will in 7 if we dedicate one of those days to Him. If we get together with the local church and remember the hope we have in Jesus. This is what church is, it’s resting in Jesus.
Yes, it’s a command. Yes, God is serious about it. But it’s a command to come to Jesus for rest. It’s a command that should sound really sweet to our ears.
