Blessings of Desiring God’s Rest

God’s promise of entering his rest still stands…

this good news—that God has prepared this rest—

has been announced to us…

…only we who believe can enter his rest…

…even though this rest has been ready since he made the world.

…“On the seventh day God rested from all his work.”

So God’s rest is there for people to enter…

So there is a special rest still waiting for the people of God.

So let us do our best to enter that rest

Blessings of Telling Others

…Christ Jesus…will someday judge the living and the dead…

For a time is coming when people will no longer listen

to sound and wholesome teaching.

They will follow their own desires

and look for teachers who will tell them

whatever their itching ears want to hear.

They will reject the truth and chase after myths.

…keep a clear mind in every situation.

…Work at telling others the Good News.

2 Timothy 4:1, 3-4, 5

Blessings of Knowing That True Life Is On The Other Side

Teach those who are rich in this world not to be proud

and not to trust in their money,

which is so unreliable.

Their trust should be in God,

who richly gives us all we need for our enjoyment. 

…be rich in good works and generous to those in need,

always being ready to share with others.

…storing up their treasure as a good foundation for the future

so that they may experience true life.

1 Timothy 6:17-19
