We live in a culture that prides itself on working hard and long, with little to no rest. There is no one reason for this. Some people are afraid that if they let up, someone else will get that sale or promotion. Others feel the need to prove themselves in order to be accepted or to feel good about themselves.
Unfortunately, many people approach God this way. They feel God will not accept them unless they work hard to earn His approval. They feel the answer to their isolation, lostness, and spiritual discontent, is to try harder. Nothing could be further from the truth! God does not want you to try harder. He wants you to enter His rest. Today’s teaching will leave you thinking about REST in a whole new way!
