Pt 4: Rhythms of Rest

October 17, 2023

Series: Under Pressure

Work, family, school, bills, doctor’s visits… do the pressures and demands of life have you feeling like a pot of boiling water? At any moment you might have to release some steam, so everyone better look out! You would have to live under a rock to avoid stress, but so many of us feel consumed and trapped by the pressures of life. Come with us to the scriptures to discover the secrets of overcoming stress, anxiety, pressure, and the impossible expectations the world places on us and we place upon ourselves!

Restlessness is part of the human condition. The infinite void within us will never be satisfied unless it is filled with the infinite God. He has given us keys to be filled with Him and find the elusive rest we desire. One of these keys is Sabbath. Though no longer a part of the law, and not essential to salvation, Sabbath is still a principal set forth by God through His example of resting on the seventh day. He formed the world to have certain rhythms of rest: daytime and nighttime, summer and winter, as well as a seven day week that includes resting at the end. Resting in the Lord is not seeing more and doing more, it is STOPPING and simply enjoying God’s creation. Listen to our Senior Leader Joel Maillet challenge us to establish, practice, and guard our personal Sabbaths in order to maintain a sustaining faith that will weather any storm!
