Day 306 Obey and Belief Hebrews 4

Hebrews 4:2 "For we also have had the good news proclaimed to us, just as they did; but the message they heard was of no value to them, because they did not share the faith of those who obeyed".

There is a correlation between obedience, and belief, therefore entering into the sabbath day rest of God.

"God finished his work of creation and rested on the 7th day.
Then he creates another day calling it "today"."

10 "for those who enter God's rest also rest from their own work, just as God did from his. 11 Let us, therefore, make every effort to enter that rest, so that no one will perish by following their example of disobedience".

The rest mentioned here is an active one not a passive half asleep type of rest.

what work do we refrain from?
Gods work was creating, maybe that was what we are to do also, Stop creating and appreciate the progress you've made thus far. When God finished each step he was satisfied with his work and took the time to say so. "And it was good" is a preferable way to end each day.

  1. This has become one of my favorite passages because it proclaims God already provided the victory during those first six days. We are asssured that we will overcome all our battles.
