We began Hebrews Chapter 4 with Pastor Jack sharing about “Maintaining Our Rest” . Where can I get some rest, you ask? God rested on the seventh day because His work was finished. Jesus declared his work on the cross as finished. The best rest available is found in trusting by faith in the finished work that God and Jesus have done, not by our own self-efforts to get there.
