Thoughts on Rest

Have you ever thought about this?

"It was God's idea that we enter into rest?"

WOW!!!

Isn’t that just so cool? So many people think that when it comes to the things of God, we absolutely, by necessity, have to PERFORM! Somehow, someway, we are supposed to DO SOMETHING that puts a smile on His face! 

A friend of mine told me that he had a wonderful conversation with a skid row bum as he sat down with him on the street. They talked sports, politics, economics, and weather. He said it was a wonderful conversation. After about 45 minutes, the bum asked my friend what he did for a living, to which my friend said, “I am a Bible teacher.” Instantly, the bum said and I quote verbatim, “Well, I want you to know that I share my whiskey with the other drunks!”

Isn’t that fascinating? A wonderful conversation between two men about so many diverse topics, but as soon as the conversation turned to God, “PERFORMING” entered into the conversation.

Isn't that sad?

Have you ever pondered this incredible thought, that it puts a smile on God’s face when we take Him at His Word and “rest?"
