THROUGH THE BIBLE IN THREE YEARS
Truman was in the insurance salesman's office, trying to purchase health insurance.
He said, "Hmmm...seems that ALL these policies are extremely expensive."
The salesman said, "Well, we don't want to pressure you into making a decision.
Why don't you sleep on it tonight. If you wake up in the morning, call us."
9 There remaineth therefore a rest to the people of God.
10 For he that is entered into his rest, he also hath ceased from his own works, as God did from his.
11 Let us labour therefore to enter into that rest, lest any man fall after the same example of unbelief.
What a joy to be laboring on this earth for Jesus!
Yet, it IS labor; and the toil brings fatigue.
We are anxious to serve our Lord Jesus.
If we are indeed zealous for our Lord, there is much to be done.
We are not weary because of the labor, we become weary in it.
At times we find our physical strength dwindles.
What a marvelous revelation God gives us!
One day there will be a total REST, and never a night!
With our work on earth, we find reward.
We find satisfaction in completing a portion of the job.
There is a reward coming which shall be ETERNAL!
We will CEASE from our labor, and find eternal rest being with Christ forever.
Therefore, let us WORK!
Let us labor to:
bring the lost to Christ;
aid the growth of fellow-laborers in Christ;
minister comfort to the grieving.
