The Rest of the People of God

This message was preached June 11th, 2017, as another installment of my teaching on the Fourth Commandment.  It attempts to answer the question, What is the rest, or sabbath keeping, which remains for the people of God?  The text is Hebrews 4:9, although most of chapters 3 and 4 are in the discussion, as this is perhaps the most important passage in all the Bible on the subject of rest.  Ultimately, my conclusion is that the believer’s rest should be focused not so much upon a particular day of the week, but upon Christ Who finished His work as thoroughly and successfully as God did His at creation.  Only by faith in Him shall we be certain of entering into the rest of the eternal Sabbath.
