August 8: “Resting” (Genesis 2:2, 1 Kings 19:11-12)

The Sabbath day starts with ceasing. When we have learned to cease, we can rest. The kind of rest God intended for us is holistic. It is not just a physical rest, but also emotional rest, and spiritual rest. Our spiritual rest is found in Christ who gives us shalom. After our rest, God calls us to go back into the broken world and continue the work of restoring shalom.
