Join us as we continue our RE series. This week Pastor Neli talks to us about rest. When we look at the Book of Genesis, God had finished creating the heavens and the earth and he chose to rest. But why does he need to rest? God doesn’t rest because he was exhausted he rested because he was exhilarated. Have you been able to take a step back and look at the beauty of your story or of God’s creation? Have you put life on pause for a moment to drink in the beauty of who he’s created you to be and how he’s created you to live this life? Take rest today and remember the goodness of God.
Thus the heavens and the earth were finished, and all the host of them. And on the seventh day God finished his work that he had done, and he rested on the seventh day from all his work that he had done. So God blessed the seventh day and made it holy, because on it God rested from all his work that he had done in creation.
– Genesis 2:1-3 (ESV)
