Earlier in the year a friend of mine blogged on keeping the Sabbath and I found it very provocative (Matt Hosier 'keeping the Sabbath'). His writing got me thinking and this Sunday I plan to start a new sermon series entitled 'Rested'.
Essentially, I want to explore REST and Jesus' invitation to 'come to me all who are weary and burdened and I will give you REST' (Matt 11v28).
I sense many of us have different concepts of what REST is (or should be) and also many different ways of obtaining REST.
As busy, results orientated, Western Christians, what does it mean to be RESTED yet straining with all our might to do life & advance His Kingdom?
I would love to know your thoughts and questions around REST to help shape the series...
