"We which have believed do enter into that rest." ....Hebrews 4:3

Rest follows work. In the fullest sense, rest is only possible when the work is completed to a point of satisfaction. It is no trifling matter that God rested after those six days of creation. How, we may ask, could He - this God of purpose, this God of abundant life - come to such a rest? Genesis 1:31 gives us the reason: "God saw everything that ...

"For hereunto were ye called: because Christ also suffered for you, leaving you an example, that ye should follow his steps." ....1 Peter 2:21

How tempted we Christians are to seek spiritual experiences just for their own sake! This is all wrong. The Bible offers us no such truth as an individual thing apart from Christ. What God has done in His grace is to include us all in Christ. Then, in God dealing with Christ, God has dealt with us the Christians; that means in dealing with the head...
