Rest or Car Crash: You Choose! Pt 2

Rest In Christ

Matt 11:28-30 Jesus said, “Are you tired? Worn out? Burned out on religion? Come to me. Get away with me and you’ll recover your life. I’ll show you how to take a real rest.  Walk with me and work with me — watch how I do it. Learn the unforced rhythms of grace. I won’t lay anything heavy or ill-fitting on you.  Keep company with me and you’ll learn to live freely and lightly.” (TMB)

Because of Adam’s sin, mankind have lost their peace and rest, they can no longer rely on God’s provision and protection: but God’s plan is restoration in Jesus Christ! When Christ died on the cross as the last Adam He won back everything the first Adam lost and as Christians who are now,’In Christ’ we’ve had restored to us the provision and protection of God.

Hence we can now enjoy rest and peace; therefore when circumstances arise beyond our control we must put our trust in God who has promised to meet every need big or small. This will restore peace to our hearts bringing our whole being into rest. Heb 4:10 For anyone who enters God’s rest also rests from his own work. (NIV)

Living our lives resting, ‘InChrist’ will preserve much of our mental, emotional, physical and spiritual strength which we lose when we are uptight and stressed. Instead of feeling worn out, fatigued and listless we will discover the new life, the more abundant life Jesus came to give us.

Meditation point: Help me Holy Spirit to hold fast to God’s promise of provision and protection so I can rest In Christ.
