A Day of Hope

The Sabbath rest now points us to the rest we will receive someday. "So then, there remains a sabbath rest for the people of God; for whoever enters God's rest also ceases from his labors as God did from his" (Hebrews 4:9,10).

Just as God rested from the work of creation, and just as we rest from our weekly tasks, one day the believers of God will also rest in his arms. When we reach that home, we will rest from all the toils and sorrows of this life and enjoy true rest forever.

Today, we have found that rest in Jesus Christ. By his sacrifice, he has opened the gates of heaven; through his power, we can live like the citizens of heaven; with his assurance, we have peace amid troubles. He will guide us all the way to that eternal rest if we always trust and obey him.

So every Sabbath is a day on which we can thank our Savior and lift up our eyes of hope to our everlasting home. Let us hope for that day of rest in heaven while we keep the day of rest on earth.
