Rest. We could all use just a little bit more of it. Maybe, I am the only one who feels that way. Or maybe it is because I have 3 (about to be 4) kids age five and under. But the more I talk to friends, family members, co-workers, and others, the more I am affirmed in my belief that we could all use just a little bit more rest.
Resting is hard to do in a busy, frenetic paced culture like we have in the world today. Especially, when busyness is like a badge of honor and well-rested slower paced life people tend to be labeled as lazy. Yet the idea of rest is all throughout Scripture. And not only that, but “abiding” is one of the few descriptors Jesus gave as a mark of a true disciple (John 8:31-32; 15:4-8). What does it mean to abide? I am glad you ask because Sinclair Ferguson answers that question in this article.
So go abide and get some rest this weekend while enjoying the Lord’s day with the Lord’s people!
