T9847B How Do We Rest?
Some people believe that the seventh day Sabbath rest is still in effect today and that those who do not observe it are not true worshippers of God.
Our focus in not on resting on a particular day. Think of athletes running a race. Do they rest somewhere in the middle of the course? No. They endure to the end. And when the end comes, then they take their rest. To plan our rest in a proper sequence assures the victory.
In the world, they take time off to rest from their work. In Christ, our rest is in doing His miraculous work. Going out and finding converts, that is our rest. Just think of the rest that you gain when one soul is converted to Jesus Christ! This is our rest and our pleasant pleasure, the wonderful fragrance of people being saved from the destructive kingdoms of this world.
