Daily Devotions with Spurgeon: 28th September

Work is Done; Rest in Him

There remains, therefore, a rest for the people of God. (Hebrews 4:9)

God has provided a Sabbath, and it remains for the people of God to enter into it.

Come, then, let us labour to enter into this rest. Let us cease from our own works, as God did from His. Let us find solace in the finished work of our Lord Jesus. Everything is fully done: justice demands no more. Great peace is our portion in Christ Jesus.

As to the work of grace in the soul, and the work of the Lord in the souls of others, let us cast these burdens upon the Lord and rest in Him. When the Lord gives us a yoke to bear, He does so that by taking it up we may find rest. By faith we labour to enter into the rest of God, and we renounce all rest in self-satisfaction or indolence. Jesus Himself is perfect rest, and we are filled to the brim in Him.
