Blessed Labor Day

True rest comes from the Lord.

On the seventh day, God rested from all his works.  (Genesis 2:2).  This is the Sabbath day of rest.

“So then, there remains a Sabbath rest for the people of God, for whoever has entered God’s rest has also rested from his works as God did from his.”  (Hebrews 4:9-10, ESV).

May we rest from our works, and enter God’s rest.  “For you are saved by grace through faith, and this is not from yourselves; it is God’s gift—not from works …  For we are His creation, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared ahead of time so that we should walk in them.”  (Ephesians 2:8-10, HCSB).

Blessed Labor Day!

“The trees of the Lord are watered abundantly,
the cedars of Lebanon that he planted…”

“The high mountains are for the wild goats;
the rocks are a refuge for the rock badgers…”

“O Lord, how manifold are your works!  In wisdom have you made them all…”

“Bless the Lord, O my soul!
Praise the Lord!”
