“There remains therefore a rest for the people of God.” Hebrews 4:9
Human beings work every day on earth and find time to rest each day. God, who created heaven and earth, gave you the grace to choose whatever you want in the rest. In the Epistle to the Hebrews, we recognize that a rest remains for the people of God (Hebrews 4:9).
How can we be a people of God who qualify for this rest?
Where is this rest? Jesus Christ explains in the Gospel according to Saint John that He is going to prepare a place for believers in God’s Kingdom (John 14:1-3). This reveals eternity as the place of rest, for Jesus explains that He is the way to God; He promises to go to the Father and come back to take us to heaven (John 14:6, 10, 28).
What does this tell us? Jesus will return to rapture us to God (the Father). He will put us in everlasting peace and reward our obedience to His word. We are encouraged to relate with Jesus Christ to inherit the mansions He has prepared for us in the Kingdom of God. We must also focus on God’s regulations for eternity.
Only those who have the righteousness of God will enter the rest.
In the Epistle to the Galatians, we observe that the works of the flesh are our most common actions that are contrary to the righteousness of God: “The works of the flesh are evident, which are: adultery, fornication, uncleanness, lewdness, idolatry, sorcery, hatred, contentions, jealousies, outbursts of wrath, selfish ambitions, dissensions, heresies, envy, murders, drunkenness, revelries, and the like.” They lead to destruction. The work of the Spirit are the actions we can do every day to please God as “the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, self-control.” They help us to do well to please God and humankind (Galatians 5:19-23).
What shall we do?
Jesus says we should come to Him, and He will give us rest from the work of the flesh (Matthew 11:28-30). We are assured that the desire and obedience to the flesh is crucified (Galatians 5:24). This informs us that when we accept Jesus Christ as our Lord and Savior, our desire is set on eternity and obedience to the Word of God. We now appreciate the crucifixion of Jesus to remove our sins. We genuinely go to God for forgiveness and cleansing. You need to mention the sin you renounce and continue to live rightly. Join a standard Bible Study apart from your daily personal fellowship with God and continue with the Lord. Be an overcomer each day, remembering that God is always present with us. Continue to overcome through prayer and the Word of God. Always think about the rest that remains for those who believe in Christ and continue with your faith in Christ to the end. Remember, a rest remains for God’s people (Hebrews 4:9).
