Hebrews Week # 8: Real Rest

Hebrews 4:8-10

Pastor Josh shares a message on the Rest that God offers us. Couldn't we all use a little rest? Hebrews 4:8-10 gives us an important look at the rest we can have now and forever in Jesus Christ.

Stop for a minute and just think what it would like and feel like for you to truly be at rest in your soul. Have you tasted this? Are you constantly in turmoil in your soul? Is your mind always racing? Are you plagued with guilt or shame, worry and anxiety, fears and failures? Does the uncertainty of life drain you? Do you constantly worry about your status with God? Is he mad at me? Does He know what I did? Will He forgive me?
What things are you running after to find rest? Is it work? Is it the praise of people? Is it a relationship? Is it a drug or a substance? Is it fantasy? How do you escape?
God offers us something better than relaxation and escape.
