Point to Ponder 221

 

As we see our society rejecting God's Word and wisdom, the more problems emerge.  Everyone goes their own way, a broad way that leads to destruction.  We are the light of the world, let's not put a bushel over it.  Let Christ shine offering the rest our souls desperately need. 

RESTING IN CHRIST

God established the Sabbath to give rest for both body and soul.  The Sabbath Day, however, was only a shadow of the true Sabbath in Christ.  You see, the true Sabbath is the peace and rest for the soul through the forgiveness of sins given only through Jesus Christ.

We discover this forgiveness through God’s Word written in the Bible.  “We should fear and love God that we do not despise…his Word.”  We despise His Word when we fail to read, study, or hear it. 

To have a healthy helping of God’s Word, we need to be in the House of the Lord hearing His Word faithfully.  It’s here that our souls are refreshed with inner peace and joy.  These unparalleled gifts are essential for our soul’s rest, gifts which this world cannot give.

Rather than despising His Word, let’s hold it sacred and gladly hear and learn it. 

But these are written … that you may have life in his name.

Blessed is the nation whose God is the Lord, the people he chose for his inheritance.  Psalm 33:12
