Resting in Jesus

Thursday, July 11, 2013
Hebrews 3

To listen to Nick read the one-minute introduction.

The nature of Christ is exalted high above the greatness of Moses. Christ draws us to himself, embracing us, longing that we rest in the security and comfort of being one with his own body.

Let us not be as God’s people in the desert⎯as children squirming and pushing away from the cuddling arms of a loving parent. Rebelliousness, restlessness, and resistance took place, coming from that hardness of heart that happens when unbelief is at the core.

Sink into this day, this moment as into the arms of Jesus who waits for you to rest with him and in him. Beware of the negative movement of the deceitfulness of sin and of disobedience to God’s Word. What is it in you that tends to push you away from that quiet peace that comes when you are resting in Jesus?
