Learning to Rest #014

In this week's episode, your hosts Anna and Jordan begin to explore what it means to rest in God. We chat through ideas about rest: Why do we need rest? How did Jesus model rest in the Bible? And how can we practically apply that to our lives today?


Bible Bits:

Matthew 11:28-30:

“Come to me,all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest.

29 Take my yoke upon you and learn from me,for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls.30 For my yoke is easy and my burden is light.”


Jeremiah 31:25:

"I will refresh the weary and satisfy the faint."


Jesus' Solitude:

Luke 4: 1-14 - The Temptation of Jesus

Luke 5:16 - "But Jesus often withdrew to the wilderness for prayer."

Luke 6:12 - "One day soon afterward Jesus went up on a mountain to pray, and he prayed to God all night."

Luke 22:39-46 - Jesus Prays on the Mount of Olives


Sabbath

Genesis 2:1-3:

"So the creation of the heavens and the earth and everything in them was completed.2 On the seventh day God had finished his work of creation, so he rested[a]from all his work.3 And God blessed the seventh day and declared it holy, because it was the day when he rested from all his work of creation."


Mark 2:27:

"Then Jesus said to them,“The Sabbath was made to meet the needs of people, and not people to meet the requirements of the Sabbath."
