Jottings – God’s Rest
Speaking on the “rest” of Hebrews 4:1-11:
“God can only rest in that which satisfies His love and holiness. God’s rest will be reached when God’s love has fulfilled all His mind for those He loves. When righteousness is established, and sorrow and sighing flee away, God will “rest in His love” (Zephaniah 3: 17). “Holiness cannot rest where sin is; love cannot rest where sorrow is” (J.N.D.).”
