Sermons about Rest
Psalm 23 is perhaps a 'familiar' one for many; this is both good and bad. It is good because knowing God's Word can be a tremendous blessing. It is bad because if we think we are familiar with Scripture we need to look again (i.e., even "familiar" passages have more depth than we know...we will never completely plumb the depths of God's Word). While a portion of this sermon deals with the "why" of this series, both the sermon and the devotional guide (I pray) will prove helpful.
Genesis 1:26-2:3 Colossians 2:13-17 Mark 2:23-3:6
Pastor Jim speaks from Hebrews 4 and God's promise of a Sabbath rest
Part 2 in the Road Trip series looks at what the Bible says to everyone who is spiritually "running on empty."
Jesus is our perfect high priest who is able to save completely those who come to God through him because he always lives to intercede for them.
Pastor Jim brings part one of a quick two part series on what the Lord says about restlessness and the Sabbath rest He has for us.
Rest is very important to our bodies and our minds. God knew this and that's why He commanded us to do it on a WEEKLY basis. Many times, we overlook this necessary part of our lives, to our own detriment.
In the ten commandments, God provides the basics of human existence. In this short list we see both all that we are to be, yet all that we are not. Thus the commandments both empower and crush. They empower us to be all that God intends for us. And they crush us with the knowledge that we live far from his intention. As we align our lives to these simple commandments, we do so as imperfect people. This fact continually draws us back to the first of the ten – faithful trust in a merciful God.
