Working On Rest

Noel Heikkinen

Hebrews 4:1-14

Work and rest seem to be at constant odds in our life, but Scripture would argue that they are inseparably related. How does rest look in your life? Pastor Noel Jesse Heikkinen points to the eternal and immediate rest we all desperately need and shares how they are both achievable by one simple but incredibly hard act; belief. The key to rest is to believe fully in Jesus and stop trying to do it on our own.

So we see that they were unable to enter because of unbelief.
Hebrews 3:19

Therefore, since the promise to enter his rest remains, let us beware that none of you be found to have fallen short.
Hebrews 4:1

For we also have received the good news just as they did. But the message they heard did not benefit them, since they were not united with those who heard it in faith.
Hebrews 4:2

For we who have believed enter the rest, in keeping with what he has said,

So I swore in my anger,

“They will not enter my rest,”

even though his works have been finished since the foundation of the world. For somewhere he has spoken about the seventh day in this way: And on the seventh day God rested from all his works. Again, in that passage he says, They will never enter my rest.
Hebrews 4:3-5

Therefore, since it remains for some to enter it, and those who formerly received the good news did not enter because of disobedience, he again specifies a certain day —  today . He specified this speaking through David after such a long time:

Today, if you hear his voice,

do not harden your hearts.
Hebrews 4:6-7

For if Joshua had given them rest, God would not have spoken later about another day. Therefore, a Sabbath rest remains for God’s people.
Hebrews 4:8-9

For the person who has entered his rest has rested from his own works, just as God did from his. Let us then make every effort to enter that rest, so that no one will fall into the same pattern of disobedience.
Hebrews 4:10-11

For the word of God is living and effective and sharper than any double-edged sword, penetrating as far as the separation of soul and spirit, joints and marrow. It is able to judge the thoughts and intentions of the heart. No creature is hidden from him, but all things are naked and exposed to the eyes of him to whom we must give an account.
Hebrews 4:12-13

Therefore, since we have a great high priest who has passed through the heavens — Jesus the Son of God — let us hold fast to our confession.
Hebrews 4:14
