WE REST IN CHRIST
HIS CALLING FITS PERFECTLY
Now when evening had come, because it was the Preparation Day, that is, the day before the SABBATH, Joseph of Arimathea, a prominent council member, who was himself waiting for the KINGDOM OF GOD, coming and taking courage, went in to Pilate and asked for the body of Jesus. Pilate marveled that He was already dead; and summoning the centurion, he asked him if He had been dead for some time. So when he found out from the centurion, he granted the body to Joseph. - Mark 15:42-45 .
“Remember the SABBATH DAY, to keep it holy. Six days you shall labor and do all your work, but the seventh day is the Sabbath of the Lord your God. In it you shall do no work: you, nor your son, nor your daughter, nor your male servant, nor your female servant, nor your cattle, nor your stranger who is within your gates. For in six days the Lord made the heavens and the earth, the sea, and all that is in them, and RESTED the seventh day. Therefore the Lord blessed the Sabbath day and hallowed it. - Exodus 20:8-11 .
There remains therefore a REST for the people of God. For he who has entered HIS REST has himself also CEASED FROM HIS WORKS as God did from His. - Hebrews 4:9-10 .
For by grace you have been saved through faith, and that not of yourselves; it is the gift of God, NOT OF WORKS, lest anyone should boast. For we are His workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for GOOD WORKS, which GOD PREPARED beforehand that we should walk in them. - Ephesians 2:8-10
