THE LACK OF KNOWLEDGE ON WHAT CHRIST HAS ACCOMPLISHED FOR US AT THE CROSS AND THE NEW COVENANT HE MEDIATED WITH THE FATHER ROBS MANY BELIEVERS OF ENJOYING THE FULL BENEFITS OF HIS FINISHED WORK ON THE CROSS.
(Psa 103:2-5) “Praise the LORD, O my soul, and forget not all his benefits—who forgives all your sins and heals all your diseases, who redeems your life from the pit and crowns you with love and compassion, who satisfies your desires with good things so that your youth is renewed like the eagle’s.”
INSTEAD OF RESTING IN CHRIST AND HIS FINISHED WORK ON THE CROSS, WE TRY TO EARN WHAT HAS ALREADY BEEN EARNED AND PAY WHAT HAS ALREADY BEEN PAID.
CHRIST IS GOD’S REST FOR THE NEW COVENANT PEOPLE. WHEN GOD FINISHED HIS WORK OF CREATION HE RESTED, LIKEWISE, THE BIBLE SAYS THAT IF WE ENTER GOD’S REST, WE WILL ALSO REST FROM OUR WORK JUST AS HE DID FROM HIS. (Heb 4:9) “There remains, then, a Sabbath-rest for the people of God; for anyone who enters God’s rest also rests from his own work, just as God did from his.”
YOU SEE, GOD WANTS US TO REST IN CHRIST AND HIS FINISHED WORK ON THE CROSS.
FOR THIS REASON, JESUS SAID:
(Mat 11:28-29) “Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls.”
NOW YOU WILL UNDERSTAND WHY JESUS SAID THAT HE IS THE LORD OF THE SABBATH OR REST.
(Mat 12:8) “For the Son of Man is Lord of the Sabbath.”
STOP TRYING TO EARN WHAT CHRIST HAS ALREADY EARNED AND PAY WHAT CHRIST HAS ALREADY PAID.
GOD WANTS YOU TO REST IN CHRIST AND HIS FINISHED WORK ON THE CROSS!
Please bear with me for using all capital letters for my comments and small letters for my bible verses. You see, Facebook does not allow bold, italics or the use of different fonts. I tried using all caps for my bible verses and small letters for my comments, but it looked awkward. Thank you for your understanding.
