In the Alphabet of Life, R is for Rest. Because REST is one of the most precious gift He came to give us.
Rest from our own works, rest from worries, rest from fretting, rest from trying hard, rest from seeking to deserve or earn His goodness, rest from all the pressure that comes from living down here in this sin-infested place.
God purchased salvation through Jesus that we might come to rest in Him and enjoy His faithfulness. This Jesus, He invites us to enjoy His presence. This Jesus, He invites us to enjoy a life free from striving.
Because this Jesus, He is God coming down from heaven to give us rest.
And as we taste of that rest and enjoy it fully, God is glorified.
In the Alphabet of Life, R is for Rest.
Come to Me, all who are weary and heavy-laden, and I will give you rest. Matthew 11:28
