Heavenly rest


Heavenly rest

“There remaineth therefore a rest to the people of God.” Hebrews 4:9

Suggested Further Reading: Revelation 14:12-16

From Monday morning till Saturday night, many of you will not be able to lay aside your needle and your thread, except when, tired and weary, 
you fall back on your chair, 
and are lulled to sleep by your thoughts of labour! 
Oh! how seasonable will heaven’s rest be to you! 
Oh! how glad will you be, when you get there, 
to find that there are no Monday mornings, no more toil for you,
 but rest, eternal rest! Others of you have had manual labour to perform; you have reason to thank God that you are strong enough to do it, and you are not ashamed of your work; for labour is an honour to a man. 

But still there are times when you say, “I wish I were not so dragged to death by the business of London life.” 

We have but little rest in this huge city; our day is longer, and our work is harder than our friends in the country. 

You have sometimes sighed to go into the green fields for a breath of fresh air; you have longed to hear the song of the sweet birds that used to wake you when you were young; you have regretted the bright blue sky, the beauteous flowers, and the thousand charms of a country life. 

And, perhaps, you will never get beyond this smoky city; but remember, when you get up there, “sweet fields arrayed in living green,” and “rivers of delight” shall be the place where you shall rest, you shall have all the joys you can conceive of in that home of happiness.

For meditation:

 The Christian’s rest in heaven will be enriched by the worth of his work for Christ on earth (1 Corinthians 3:13-15).
 Spurgeon says:- “There, up in heaven, Luther has no more to face a thundering Vatican; Paul has no more to run from city to city, 
and continent to continent; there Baxter has no more to toil in his pulpit, 
to preach with a broken heart to hard hearted sinners; there no longer has Knox to “cry aloud and spare not” 
against the immoralities of the false church.” 
What will you be missing?

“The true minister of Christ
 knows that the true value of a sermon must lie,  
not in its fashion and manner, 
but in the truth which it contains.”
