This week’s sermon title is “Rest: The Product of Diligent Faith, or, The Sloth’s Idol?” Living in a culture which prizes comfort and ease beyond nearly everything, we are constantly bombarded with messages of comfort and rest. The author of Hebrews talks about rest, and he says Christians should be diligent to enter that rest of which he speaks. On the surface this appears to be an oxymoron: diligent rest! We need to know what exactly is rest and how does a Christian find it? To do so, we will look to the Word of God, for we learn in Hebrews that God’s Word pierces as far as bone and marrow, but tender hearts will believe, obey, and find rest.
